Account Director - Growing Digital Agency in Soho
Salary: £50K - £65K per annum

Account Director required by a creative agency in the heart of Soho who are continuing to expand due to project and client wins.

What Will You Be Doing?

This is a broad and varied role where you will do everything from:

Manage clients - make sure the diverse client base are all happy, well attended to and where possible you'll spot opportunities to develop accounts further.

Mentor & manage the talented account management team to ensure all targets are met as well as manage the resources for each project in your portfolio.

Manage various project & client budgets to make sure everything is on track and any change is discussed with both the client and senior management team.

Where will you be working?

You'll be working in the heart of Soho where you'll be surrounded by great coffee, places to eat and bars for the almost religious after work drinks with the team on a Friday (sometimes a Thursday as well …).

The team have recently moved into a new office space after outgrowing their initial place due to how fast the team is expanding.

Who will you be working with?

You'll be working in a high calibre Client Services team who are managing some of the most interesting digital projects in the UK from large scale financial service clients in Edinburgh to Telecommunications giants in Manchester and almost everything in between!

The CS team operate a flat structure and you'll get to liaise with senior management team on a regular basis and as a result decision making is both quick & decisive.

Now about you…

You'll ideally be coming from an agency background where you have spent the last couple of years at least in an Account Director role. You'll also have had experience working on large scale digital projects, where you have played a key role in the transformation of your clients digital offering.

A natural communicator who has the ability to sniff out new business opportunities from key decision makers without being a 'sleazy salesman'!

Want to really stand out?

If you have experience of delivering large scale Microsoft CMS projects - think Sitecore, EPiServer, Umbraco or even SharePoint - that would be a big plus.

What's on offer?

A basic salary of £50-65k + benefits package.

Personal development budget of up to £1,000 per year where you can attend conferences or work towards a certification - basically anything which will enhance your ability to do your job.

They take corporate social responsibility very seriously and offer charity days to all employees where you can volunteer at the charity of your choice and take a 'free' day off to do so. Alongside this, the company also give a pretty significant % of their profits to charity as well as donating a lot of their time to good causes.
