This is a fantastic opportunity to take up, or progress into, a senior leadership role within an integrated marketing agency based in Cheshire. They are looking to bring a Junior Account Director on board to drive the continued business growth of the agency, bringing exceptional client services and pitching experience to the team.

With services in planning and strategy, branding, marketing, digital marketing, social, digital build and print, there is real diversity in the type of work coming through the agency. Clients include many recognisable names in lifestyle, retail and leisure, and they typically work a broad spectrum of the marketing mix for each of their clients.

The MD of this agency is one of the top selling points, an incredibly down to earth and driven professional with amazing experience with some of the top agencies in Manchester spearheading branding and marketing campaigns; experience which is passed down to employees whilst working closely with them in career development and empowering them to push boundaries in new areas.

Culture-wise its a relaxed environment where everyone is involved in major projects and everyone has a voice, collaboration is at the heart of their approach. As such the right candidate will come with enthusiasm, a can-do approach, and a team focussed mentality - adding to the existing culture. With a conscious shift towards working with larger and higher profile clients, and with the role heavily focussed on this, it is a great opportunity for the right individual to make a major and ongoing contribution toward the growth of this already successful business. Continued success will pave the way to full Account Director status and associated responsibilities.

The ideal individual for this role will be positive in nature, highly motivated, commercially focussed, a natural networker, and well versed in getting the best from a team through leadership and support. Strengths in all forms of Digital and Social Media Marketing as part of the full marketing mix are essential. Furthermore, they are looking for the right blend of creativity for working on strategies and campaigns, and sufficient ability to work with top line data for insights, and for analysing campaign performance. Whilst this is ideally placed as a full time role, there is the possibility of considering a part time contract for the right person, though flexibility will be a prerequisite in this instance.

Junior Account Director, Cheshire, salary is 35,000 - 40,000 dependent on experience.
