Job Description

Following some big business wins, we’ve got an opportunity for an ambitious Group Account Director with bags of B2B agency experience who has the potential to eventually become Client Services Director.

The agency

Our client is an award-winning B2B creative marketing agency on a strong upward trajectory. Focussed on branding, lead-gen and ABM, they work with a broad range of well-known tech and telco companies seeking transformational development and growth.

With a proud growing team of around 20 people and a culture built on trust, they give you freedom to do your job and incentivise you to do it well. They have a healthy respect for work-life balance and offer flexibility but expect you to put in the hours when necessary.

As an agency enjoying continued growth, they want to nurture a healthy culture, which relies on a hybrid model, working together and developing relationships, both remotely and in the office.


The role

This role works directly into the Managing Director and Head of Growth and will see you head up your own team. Taking the commercial lead, it calls for passion, strategic mindset, creativity and hands-on experience.

This is no ‘ivory tower’ agency – as the client lead, you’ll get stuck in. Working with the joint founders you’ll become the face of the portfolio and have autonomy over the clients and the teams below you.

You will be well versed in managing £1m plus revenue accounts, understand and have experience in growing and developing client relationships as well as nurturing and growing your supporting client service teams.

Although you will sit across your own portfolio, you will be expected from time to time to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in. Even the founder step in and help out as and when required.

The added difference with this role is that we are seeking someone who understands marketing strategy and can have meaningful conversations with their clients, who has experience asking the key questions in regard to business challenges and objectives and can contribute to the conversation.

To be considered for this role as Group Account Director you will have the following skills:

  • Strategic thinker
  • Solid and proven experience in B2B marketing – this is essential
  • Vast experience working for known B2B marketing agencies in the UK
  • You’ll have worked on tech, fintech or martech accounts
  • Ability to assimilate large amounts of information quickly and maintain a strong understanding of client’s business
  • Understands how to ‘play in’ at the right level across client relationships, without compromising ability and potential of others within the team.
  • Strong face to face presentation skills, with a real focus on story-telling
  • Experienced in hosting and running client workshops
  • Strong and effective communication skills – articulation, written word, presentation ability.
  • Makes well informed decisions, ensuring multiple viewpoints are considered where appropriate.
  • Strong business acumen – commercially savvy as you’ll be tasked with developing part of the agency revenue streams
  • Displays high levels of emotional intelligence – empathy, social skill and adaptability.

In return for your experience and knowledge our client is offering a competitive salary ranging between £70-75k plus benefits.

If you are an experienced Senior Account Director or Group Account Director, have a proven track record working within B2B marketing agencies, a strategic thinker and have experience growing client relationships then get in touch with me, Tom Howe.
