Ref 5410
Salary £70,000 – £80,000 + bonus

Do you feel like the stories you are working on are a little ‘dry’ and aspire to work on something a little more heavy-weight, maybe even controversial?

  • Are you stagnant in your role and no longer being stretched?
  • Thinking it’s time to take on a new challenge?
  • Salary feeling like it’s behind market rate?

If so, this could be the opportunity you have been looking for:

  • This agency has large mandates from some controversial brands (vaping, rape seed oil) and are putting together a team of smart thinkers to service international media campaigns.
  • Join a highly entrepreneurial team, in its infancy to help shape the agency’s positioning and gain exposure to state-of-the-art comms techniques, as well as branded and unbranded comms campaigns.
  • Make a strong contribution to key business objectives and lead the internal team demonstrating client relationship skills, leadership, strategy, ideas and project management
  • This is a role that has the potential for an account director inside one of the big agencies to step into a new approach to PR/communications.

What we are looking for:

  • It is likely that you are currently in an agency at Account Director level looking for a new challenge with issues-rich projects - blue chip calibre is highly desirable
  • You need to show an ability to navigate new categories and understanding of issues management and regulated environments
  • Have a proven track record of pitching new business, selling strategies and campaigns that demonstrate an understanding of a client's objectives/challenges
  • Someone highly personable, confident and experienced in managing clients and building relationships
