We have an excellent opportunity for someone with a genuine desire to help play a key role in the continued growth of our agency. We have ambitious plans, are passionate about doing game-changing work for clients and committed to investing in our team to stay at the forefront of the industry.

We are looking for an account director with strong experience of the enterprise technology market to support clients and help secure new business opportunities in this sector.

We are very transparent about our plans for the agency and employees that do really well are those that take personal responsibility for supporting key areas of the business alongside client work, such as marketing, social media and training. We love new ideas and enthusiasm, and are very open to changing the way we do things to test new approaches.
