Animal is growing fast. We are now looking for an Account Director to join our team.
As an Account Director at Animal you hold an overall responsibility for a selection of clients and projects, actively leading and coordinating client assignments – typically for several clients and multiple work streams simultaneously. You are responsible for owning relationships with clients and for driving projects and processes forward – providing qualified advice in all relevant areas along the way.
Eloquently playing the dual advocacy role between client and Animal, this means working in partnership with both the client and team to understand requirements and targets, before setting out a plan and scope to deliver against. As a person, you are self-propelled and welcome the opportunity of equal responsibility and accountability. Diverse in your skillset, you have experience of managing both strategic and creative development processes and projects. You will have the opportunity to be part of shaping the future of Animal and ARC (our group of brands focusing on our clients' full circle digital growth).
