Our client is a major player in the world of content and works with some of the world’s biggest Blue Chip companies and offers a huge opportunity for ambitious and driven people to grow their careers. Due to continued growth, they’re on the look-out for an experienced Group Account Director to join the team in Edinburgh where you will have the opportunity to work with clients who have big budgets to spend on exciting content projects. With an extremely client focussed approach, their emphasis is clear in two areas: establishing, measuring and achieving their client's KPIs and building close and long-standing relationships with their clients.
This is a new role so you won’t be filling anyone’s shoes and you will have the opportunity to make the role your own. You will be overseeing a team of 5 account handlers making sure that the team continues to enjoy great career progression, their clients are profitable and revenues continue to grow. You will be responsible for client relationships, delivering excellent account handling throughout the team, understanding each client's business in depth, establishing strong partnerships and developing, measuring and delivering KPIs for all activity. The successful candidate must have commercial awareness and will have experience of managing P&L and large budgets.
As Group Account Director, it’s likely you will have worked in an agency environment before and will have experience of pitching, spotting new revenue opportunities, mentoring and developing a team, leaderships with both clients and internal teams, outstanding communication skills and presentation skills. Experience in creating and delivering content for clients would be ideal but not essential, although, a passion and understanding for communications is vital.
It’s not all hard work, in return, you’ll get the opportunity to work for one of the best agencies in the area and work with some very exciting clients. A generous holiday allowance, pension, gym allowance and other perks are also on offer.
I’d love to hear from you if you feel up for the challenge.
