Set on the outskirts of Manchester, this fully integrated agency has been working with a number of great brands for some time, which is a testament to their cultured and innovative approach to delivering results, and they're now searching for an Account Director to join the team.
Due to further account wins they seek an Account Director who will be responsible for handling the TTL requirements of their key accounts across online and offline touchpoints. The clients are a mix of business to business and consumer, and cover different sectors as do their requirements - typical projects include all forms of press, radio, outdoor, direct mail, websites, email etc. A fair proportion of this role will be focused on more traditional methods of marketing such as print alongside digital media. You'll work very closely with the CSD to formulate campaign strategies, and then oversee the status of each campaign.
What we're looking for
It is necessary to have a sound understanding across all marketing disciplines which must have been gained in an agency environment. You'll need to be confident and have the ability to deal with a varied portfolio of clients within different sectors across B2B and B2C, offering them professional, effective and proactive service at all times. Above all else, you will be experienced in delivering projects across multiple channels from advertising and print to online. As well as being able to work closely with client services and other teams to ensure a seamless transition of briefs. You will also be confident presenting your ideas internally and enjoy the challenge when a pitch for new or existing business is taking shape.
What's on offer?
Above else, a great team, and a working environment which is underpinned by an extremely low staff turnover. It's also a chance to join an agency which has changed beyond recognition over the last few years and is keen to hire a forward-thinking account director who is moving up the ranks and can add value to their continuing success. In return, you will be working in an environment which positively encourages career and personal development coupled with the opportunity to work on brands which will give your CV kudos and gravitas.
