Abu Dhabi calling! A leading global creative advertising network is looking for a Senior Account Director to take on a flagship piece of business at their thriving Abu Dhabi office.

The agency numbers c. 30 people and there is a fun, vibrant working culture. The role is to work on the agency's founding client - the agency is the global strategic lead and develops all the global brand work (primarily ATL and digital) from the Abu Dhabi office, with quite a lot of work airing in the UK. Their clients - global and regional - are nearly all based in Abu Dhabi, and there is a great client relationship in place. There is a constant churn of work, with multiple simultaneous campaigns, so the Senior Account Director needs to be able to handle a fast pace and high volume of work (mainly TV and print).

Additionally, the Senior Account Director will be dealing with very senior clients, so will be someone who thrives on presenting and getting involved with top table strategic conversations. The Senior AD would report into a Business Director, with 3 AMs and an AE underneath. There are dedicated planners and creative teams on the business.

The ideal candidate will have come from a strong ATL agency background, but be able to think in a 360 way. They will have experience working on international accounts and ideally some understanding of the Middle Eastern culture - and a willingness to get stuck in!

Fantastic opportunity to take on a big piece of business and deliver some great creative work.

Salary: 29000-32000 AED per month (equivalent to £55-62k GBP pa). The agency will provide relocation and visa.
