Role -Planning Account Director (Independent Agency)
Location -London (Hybrid working model)
Salary -up to £50,000
A boutique media agency in London have entered a period of hyper growth and are currently looking for their next best Planning Account Director to join the team!
Having won multiple new household name clients over the last year, they are well known in the industry for punching above their weight and delivering work that is highly regarded within the industry. At this independent, there are many opportunities to be involved with projects outside the day to day of the role; such as pitching for new clients, getting involved in the commercials and looking to continually build out the team underneath!
At this agency, they want everyone to feel like they're having a real impact on the business, everyone in the team plays a crucial role in ensuring the success of the business. If you're looking to join a team where you can tangibly see the impact you're having on the agency then this is the place to go!
This role will be leading a team of juniors across the planning and buying for their flagship client across the full suite of online and offline channels, for both DR and brand campaigns! So naturally, experience in all of the above is neccisary to ensure success in this role. Experience managing relationships with senior client stakeholders is also vital, as much of this role will be client facing.
Culture wise, the hiring manger described the business as a place without egos, everyone gets involved and when things don't go to plan, its a place where they look at how the team could have done things better, never resting everything on an individual. They run weekly training exercises to constantly look about how they can improve, which even the MD goes to!
This is a great role for an experienced manager to take a step up into, or an existing director who wants something slightly different.
