Creative Director - Gifting
After recent growth within the Gifting market globally, I am looking to recruit a Creative Director for a leading Gifting business based in Central London. The company I am partnered with is a market leader in several aspects, but mainly product innovation. Continuously hitting the market with fresh, new products, their products are stocked in all major UK retailers and independents.
The Creative Director will enter the business at a senior level, reporting directly into the Sales Director, with two direct reports (Junior Product Developers). With this responsibility, the Creative Director will be expected to develop products through from packaging to product, often after briefings from retailers for own label ranges.
The Ideal Candidate
Ideally, the candidate for this position will be at Senior Product Developer level looking to take the next step up.
I am looking for a self-motivated, dynamic individual who can support rapid growth and a strong creative vision. The relevant previous experience of the candidate will be directly Gift related, and it is essential that this has covered both product and packaging.
The Sales Director is looking for someone who fills them with confidence on a sales pitch. A Creative Director who has both product development and commercial flare, who can understand the brief/concepts and crack on with bringing the designs to life.
The successful candidate will be expected to travel to the office five days a week to Central London. The Creative Director will attend sales meetings with the Key Account Managers in order to discuss product requirements, creative visuals over a certain time frame, and then relinquish some product and packaging design responsibility onto the Junior Product Development Manager. This position will be an integral part of winning new business, as it will be working in conjunction with Key Accounts established by the sales team.
This position comes with a generous OTE, with additional benefits such as a non-politics work environment, including a small family-feel team. Should you wish to take the next steps in your career, and move to 'Creative Director', please do not hesitate to apply directly.
