Integrated Account Director


We are looking for an Integrated Account Director to join our outstanding Account Management Department.  This Account Director role is on our largest client - working on the brand business but also working across the separate, business units and helping us to develop work across all mediums.  This opportunity is a truly integrated role.  The Account Director would be working closely with members of all our strategy departments, senior members of our creative department and with all facets of production.

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 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.

If you have experience working as an Account Director for a few years and understand how to help a client get to remarkable work, we look forward to hearing from you.
 

Thank you.
