One of London's most acclaimed small – but fast growing – PR agencies is looking for an ambitious Account Director to help drive its next stage of growth.

The ideal candidate will be as comfortable working on corporate and interesting issues-led accounts as they are delivering big brand consumer activity. They will work across a number of clients including travel, healthcare and fintech brands.

The right candidate will be looking for the opportunity to take on more responsibility and autonomy while managing a team and playing a key role in shaping the future direction of the agency at a very exciting chapter in its journey.

The award-winning agency is known for its creative campaigns, has an enviable list of clients, a strong sense of culture and fantastic work-life balance. Rather than being bogged down by admin and process, the independent agency focuses its energies on building great client relationships and outstanding work.

A senior hire for the agency, the successful candidate will be rewarded with an exciting portfolio of clients, a great career development path, the opportunity to make key decisions and truly make the role their own.

Since its creation in 2011, the agency has quickly grown to a team of 25 and continues to go from strength to strength – making a big name for itself already. Its approach sees the successful fusion of corporate reputation and business understanding with the creative execution of a consumer agency.

Always open to new ideas, innovating, and challenging the way it thinks, the agency frequently collaborates with specialists from a range of disciplines, which sees it retain longstanding and close relationships with its list of well known clients.
