Account Director

San Francisco

We may have two Account Director openings in our San Francisco office. One opportunity is a full-time role for an Account Director with 2-3 years of Director experience, and the other is a 3-month freelance opportunity, with the chance to go full-time at the end of the summer, 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR: 

As an Account Director we expect that you are no longer managing projects but leading accounts or large pieces of accounts. Your job is more than helping make the trains run well and on time.  It’s now about helping others make sure this happens.  And, more importantly, it’s about guiding the process and decisions on where to lay new track.  It’s a role that requires equal parts of quality control and leadership.

For us a great Account Director does the following:

1) Clearly defines the client’s business problem and gets people in the Agency excited to work on it.

2) Provides their own point-of-view that is considerate of both the Client’s and Agency’s viewpoints, but not necessarily beholden to either one of them.

3) Serves the needs of the individuals on their team and on the account.

Although you are the most senior person managing a team of people, this is not permission to act above the other people working on the account (especially the account managers).  Instead, you need to work to serve their needs, individual by individual.  This means making time for them – even treating their time as more important than your own. This can’t be emphasized enough.  The directors that people like working with the most seem to be the ones most generous and open with their time.

4.) Constantly set (and if necessary, change) the conditions on the account to allow people to do their best work. 
 

Qualifications: 

You must have prior advertising agency experience, and have worked as an Account Director for 2-3 years.

You have managed complex projects.

You know how to manage a team of people.

You have experience with all facets of production, including managing a large production.
