When taking this brief I was told the mission of this agency was to become “masters of their craft”.  Now that the world is opening up their growth plans are back in action and they need world class people to lead this charge.

The agency itself delivers internal communication and engagement based projects, culture campaigns, virtual & broadcast right through to the more traditional live event delivery. 

Everything they do is built around value, creativity, delivery and results with long lasting relationships being the key cog in the wheel.  The client base is varied and covers tech, telecoms & automotive amongst others.  They have a global network of 40 partners with a reach across all continents.

How about you?  Well, the structure of the role will involve;

  • Account direction
    • A strategic thinker who can manage multiple stakeholders with varying requirements all at different stages
    • Adept at working closely with and guiding / advising board level clients who in turn will trust you and see you as an extension of their business
    • Someone skilled in the art of pitching (competitive pitching will be in place for work with new stakeholders / teams) and who is truly skilled at leading these processes
    • Commercially minded with their ear to the ground always looking at ways to grow the account, speak to new stakeholders, hear about new opportunities and act upon those
    • Management of multi-million pound accounts and a commercial mindset
  • Project Management
    • Digital, virtual and live project experience within an agency environment
    • B2B & B2C experience across a variety of offerings (e.g. activations, conferences etc)
  • Team Leadership
    • A leader who empowers, motivates and leads by example every minute of every day

You’ll be curious to learn, always looking to question and your natural thought process will be “how can we do this better?”
