Brief Overview:

So you've made it PR Account Director, but do you feel like you're being valued? - if not, this agency is definitely somewhere to consider for your next move!

The role:

We're working with an agency which is winning business hand over fist, and has an ecletic mix of clients which are well worth boasting about. As Account Director you know that no two accounts are the same, and of course, it's not going to be any different with this agency, but you will be expected to be a source of new ideas and propositions for your clients and whether there's a board director with a working interest in the account, it will be you who will be their preferred partner, because they will trust you implicitly with their business. You're going to be managing a team and will be the go-to person for Account Managers and other members of the team, managing workloads and keeping a keen eye on stress levels ensuring everyone is performing at their best level. You won't be 'hands-off' either in terms of the day to day job and will be keen to continue to nurture your already superb journalist end editorial contacts, but you will need to be networking and playing a part in bringing in new business, so those contacts may well expand to areas outside of the media.

What we're looking for:

We're looking for an agency experienced PR Director with proof of management skills, and an ambition to reach Board level; it really should be a 'when' not 'if' you reach this level. Sector experience should be varied, but there is a possibility of being able to fit experience to clients, so if your experience is in one sector please don't let that put you off. You'll be a relationship builder and will be happy to not only work for your clients, but to make your mark on the industry in other ways, perhaps through education or community associations.

What's on Offer?

We think it's abundantly clear that the sky is the limit with this particular agency, and just as importantly that they have a genuine concern for each and every one of their employees so why wouldn't you want to work for them? Salary is competitive, but there's also a very decent 25 days holiday, plus your birthday off.
