Our client is a new breed of communications agency; a highly creative and strategic team of people focused on helping brands harness the power and potential of audience to shift product, swing opinion, create a movement, land a message, and even reframe a crisis.
To help bring this to life for their growing client roster, as well as help build out what is essentially a corporate consulting offer, the MD wants to hire a strategically-minded Associate Director (or an exceptional Senior Account Director), with expertise across consumer brands and major corporates. Typically you might classify yourself a 'corpsumer' specialist, but whatever the shorthand, you should be able to cut across a range of communication disciplines and markets as trusted client adviser and designer of clever campaigns.
You should have experience and aptitude in the management of teams, the ability to take the lead on complex programmes and provide high-level counsel to clients. As number two in the team, you would be expected to help deliver new business, whilst maintaining a big picture strategic view of existing client business. This is a consultancy with long-term client relationships and a reputation for combining high levels of creativity with the finest strategic thinking.
This is a rare opportunity to play a critical role in a rapidly evolving business and to hone your leadership and people management skills whilst delivering modern communications solutions to a diverse and fascinating set of clients.
