They’re looking for a Group Account Director to help usher them into the digital space, while upholding the agency’s mission of making extraordinary things happen for their clients’ brands.
A proven teacher and trusted leader, you’ve got an impeccable agency pedigree. While you have expert knowledge of digital advertising, you create campaigns that truly transcend media. You have the ability to define problems, anticipate solutions, and steer your team towards the best outcome. You’ve got a track record of building trust, with well-established long-term client relationships to prove it. You are an impressive speaker and writer, whether the audience is a client, an industry conference, or the readership of an influential blog or publication. You understand basic business principles of legal, finance, and HR, are an expert in PowerPoint, and have an innate aesthetic sensibility.
As Group Account Director, your primary purpose is to create and maintain a bond between the agency and the client. You will be looked upon as the expert for your clients’ businesses, expected to instill confidence in the agency’s leadership capabilities and to take the lead on pitching new business. You will manage and prioritize across numerous pieces of business by providing leadership to a cadre of Account Directors, overseeing internal training, mentoring, and guidance of multiple teams. By owning and championing the account plans in your charge, you will ensure they are accurate and up to date, and use them as development opportunities for key account leaders.
When we asked these guys what defines them, they didn’t talk about their pedigrees. They talked about their passion. How hungry they are for the work they’re doing. And how each member of the team can be described as a thinker, a strategist, and a doer.
This is a growing company, and now is the time to take a stake in what they’re building. If that excites you as much as it excites them, we could have a match.
