Account Director – leading a major travel account at a rapidly growing consumer lifestyle PR agency

My client is one of the fastest growing consumer lifestyle agencies out there. It scooped numerous awards last year, and has already doubled in size since the start of 2019. As a result it is looking for an exceptional Account Director, ideally with some experience of working with high profile travel brands.

The team has won a huge name in the travel world with an EMEA wide remit. As such this element of the role will be consumer ‘hub’ work, but relatively light touch. The focus will be on helping show the client how to be more proactive and creative, jumping on latest trends as well as managing major campaigns. Someone who has previous multi market campaign experience would be ideal, as would travel and hospitality PR experience.

They key is finding that unique mix of strategic / creative oversight of a campaign, as well as being able to hone in on client detail. Someone who’s a dab hand at client counsel as well as running a busy team and portfolio of accounts.

This exciting agency prides itself on doing bold, fun work across a mix of campaigns and press office. The focus is on building emotional connections between brands and consumers – it’s not column inches or stunts for the sake of it, instead it’s about insight-led creativity and audience-related human truths. And it’s all underpinned by a strong, flexible and supportive culture.

You’d be joining a friendly and award-winning bunch of strategists, creatives, brand story tellers, business planners, media gurus, digital technologists and event producers. Collectively they bring experience across a wide range of sectors, including consumer, tech, lifestyle, food, drink, entertainment, travel, fashion, health and finance.
