The big job.
There are creative directors, and then there’s the Creative Director.
We’re looking for the latter. The person at the top. Someone to be the leading creative voice in the agency, generating fantastic work and building a department that’ll have rivals weeping resignedly into their Mac keyboards.
Like we say, leadership is a big deal in this role. You’ll properly head up the department, hiring, developing and motivating the creative talent. (FYI, we already have a great, multi-award-winning team, and intend to supplement it with multiple hires over the coming months.)
You’ll personally work on pitches and flagship clients – Amazon, Aviva, Lloyds Banking Group, the NHS, Rolls-Royce and Vodafone among them. You’ll also take charge of the commercial side of department management. No, you won’t have your head stuck in a spreadsheet. But you will know what to focus on, and when, and understand the financial implications of your decisions.
Depending on the experience of the successful candidate, this could be a board role.
In conclusion: you’ll be given the authority you need to produce great work and to develop great talent. You’ll work in a cool office in Spitalfields, London, but also benefit from a pretty liberal hybrid working policy. You’ll lead international projects for household-name brands. And, after a short qualifying period, you’ll co-own the agency: we’re employee-owned, and the seniority of this role could result in some seriously chunky bonuses. Pay range is in the region of £80,000 – £95,000 per annum.
To discuss this role informally, drop a line to our HR Manager Sam Field at firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll organise a call with one of our board directors.
