Digital Account Director - (Global Ad Agency) (Closing Date: 09/03/2014)

We are seeking a Digital Account Director to join one of the UK’s largest and most successful marketing communication agencies.  This could be the perfect opportunity for a digitally savvy AD looking for that next challenge or a SAM / Senior Account Manager looking to take that step up and work on a large retail account.

With over 300 offices across 125 countries this global marketing communications agency employs thousands worldwide and works with some of the globe’s brightest brands. Based south of Manchester this agency employs over 280 people and is now looking for a digital savvy Account Director to join their expanding digital retail team.

As a Digital Account Director your role will cover everything from design and build through to display advertising (you’ll need to be a good digital all rounder!).  On a day to day basis you’ll be talking to the client, directing and managing a team of account staff, working with digital and content specialists and adding the digital element to all our integrated campaigns. You’ll be responsible for writing proposals, managing budgets and overseeing delivery. You should be comfortable working at both a strategic level or rolling your sleeves up as and when the need arises.

To qualify...
Whether you call yourself a Digital Account Director, Digital Account Manager, Senior Account Manager, Digital AD or similar, we don’t mind, your CV just needs to demonstrate:

  • Strong client relationship experience gained within an agency on digital accounts;
  • A genuine passion for digital, expect to champion everything digital;
  • Excellent communication skills (written, face-to-face, telephone);
  • Excellent people management and organisational skills;
  • Independent problem solving skills; flexibility to meet tight deadlines;
  • Attention to detail, positive attitude and strong interpersonal skills.

Given the nature of the client any prior retail experience would be a distinct advantage.

In return expect a unique working environment that really is hard to beat.  Based on a 9 acre site the four main buildings form a campus that includes a subsidised Bistro, free car parking, free access to an onsite gym and an outdoor heated pool (for when the weather gets warmer!).  They’ve even got allotments for you to grow your own veg!
