Senior Account Director – Consumer

With a growing consumer team, we’re excited to be looking for a fantastic team lead ready for the next step in their career.

Why us?

We work with some of the best brands in the business delivering award-winning, creative work – everything from running busy day-to-day press offices through to staying on top of the media agenda to hijack the news and integrating our communications.

Our consumer clients have such an exciting mix of sectors from sports and gaming through to consumer tech and travel – we’ve something for everyone, no two days are the same.

Genuinely, what stands us apart is our care and commitment for our teams – evident through us continuing to be recognised in PR Week’s best places to work awards time and time again.

What we’re looking for?

Someone with passion, proactivity, interest and media landscape understanding (and contacts) in the ‘consumer PR’ space.

Ideally with experience across gaming and sports – but travel, consumer tech and lifestyle experience is also relevant and beneficial to our clients.

We’re looking for someone to be part of the team – managing up and down, happy to get stuck in to get the job in hand done – no job is too big or small – we’re all in it together!

As an SAD, you’ll play a big role leading the day-to-day on your accounts:

  • Day to day account management – you’ll be the day-to-day lead on your accounts – driving brilliance, exceeding client expectations; ensuring delivery of daily, weekly and monthly activity – but also looking ahead, the bigger picture of their comms. You’ll be the main point of contact for your clients
  • Managing budgets – and team time, ensuring that all runs to clockwork and within service levels
  • Motivating teams – not only to do the job in hand and deliver strong client relations but also encouraging and supporting team members around you to grow and learn
  • Striving to deliver the best media relations – you’ll have excellent contacts – across national, lifestyle, online and ideally with a nod to tech – to get the results
  • Senior client handling and counsel – you get to know clients and know what works for them so you can be an advisor. Bringing in strategic guidance. The greater support you are, the more you can grow your clients too.
  • Being involved in new business and planning – writing proposals – learning to write a pitch from start to finish – with a wider team around you (you’ll never be working alone on such, always keen to say!) – writing up ideas in pitch decks. Good writing skills a must

We deliver work that is as ambitious as the brands we partner with; work that’s grounded in deep insights, planning and creativity to drive strategies to win. We bring it to life through bold content and campaigns that work across all channels and platforms, so we deliver real business impact at every touchpoint.

You’ll have a keen eye for detail, brilliant organisation, able to lead accounts with little upward input from start to finish, you’ll be passionate and forward thinking.

In return, we can offer you a fantastic working culture with excellent long-term career development and highly competitive benefits, including healthcare, dental care, flexible working, industry leading training, a fantastic buddy scheme, paid sabbaticals, and lots more.

We have over 200 staff in London, New York, Minneapolis and San Francisco. Like all good agencies, we have won many awards for both our campaigns and our achievements as an agency. We were particularly proud of our recent PR Moment Large Agency and Integrated Agency of the Year award wins in 2023.
