Job Details

McCann Milton Keynes is looking for an ambitious PR Account Director/Senior Account Director who is up to the challenge of delivering award-winning work and with a passion for the power of effective communication.

About McCann And YouBased in Milton Keynes, you'll be joining a team of over 100 people committed to delivering stand-out work for blue-chip clients across a wide range of disciplines including planning, research, creative, media and digital.

We're also one of the biggest and fastest-growing regional PR operators in our own right, with 60+ operators in Birmingham, Bristol, London and Leeds. And, as a part of the senior team, you'll have a say in how we build on our success and create even greater clout in the future.

McCann Milton Keynes is part of McCann Central, the UK's largest integrated agency. Over 500 individuals working together to help brands play a meaningful role in people's lives.

We are also part of McCann Worldgroup, a global agency network that delivers culture-shaping work for some of the world's biggest brands.

And to add to the (literal) wheelbarrow full of awards we've got including Euro Effies most effective global agency, Cannes Network of the Year, Campaign's European Integrated Agency of the Year, not to mention McCann Central's haul of awards in recent years at Cannes Lions, Clios, One Show, D&AD, LIAs, Golden Drum & Creative Circle Awards. So creativity really is at the forefront of everything we do.

We're a team of passionate creatives, strategists and engineers from a wide mix of backgrounds. But there's a lot that unites us - like caring deeply about everything we make. And though our skillsets are wide and our process knowledge is deep, we are all still learning every day.

RequirementsReporting to our Managing Director and working closely with our new business team, you'll be responsible for leading and delivering campaigns across existing clients, as well as working closely with our new business team to develop our PR and social offering in Milton Keynes.

We're looking for a confident Account Director/Senior Account Director who has a great track record of developing strategic PR programmes, delivering outstanding results - ideally with experience across automotive and retail markets (though this isn't essential).

You will need to demonstrate a passion for storytelling, expertise in earned media and in applying latest techniques to deliver meaningful work with commercially relevant results. You will need a keen eye for the detail coupled with a strategic view of where your clients should be heading.

Your client relationship skills will be second-to-none and you'll be passionate about helping to grow and develop the team. As a senior hire within our multi-disciplinary PR, social and influencer team, you'll also be adept at pitching for new business, spotting and converting opportunities to grow current clients and managing client finances.

If this sounds like you and you're ready to take your career to the next level with a highly driven and award-winning team, let's talk.

BenefitsIn addition to a competitive salary we are committed to creating a brilliant environment for all our people. This includes benefits such as 28 days holiday, plus the opportunity to buy more holiday, enhanced pension contributions, life assurance and much more.

A culture of learning and development is also central to our ethos, so you'll have access to industry leading training and development programmes, plus you'll get to work closely with the world's biggest media partners to access exclusive features and products.

Most importantly, you'll be part of a fun and collaborative team and you'll work in an environment where you are supported and developed.

If you want to join an iconic network agency that offers you the chance to work on one of the top clients in our portfolio & the opportunity to progress your career with an unrivalled development programme, contact us now. And not through a recruiter, please.

Our commitment to equal opportunitiesFor us, diversity is a business imperative - one that must be embedded into every aspect of how we operate in order to drive success. Simply put, we believe an encouraging and inclusive environment makes sound business sense.

As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, it's vital that the talent mix in our agencies encompass all dimensions of diversity, and that we demand the same of the people we work with.

Conscious inclusion encompasses social, cultural and cognitive differences and cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It is the integration of this philosophy that allows us to create meaningful experiences for our employees, drive better business practices with our vendors and clients, and ultimately lead with purpose.
