PR & SOCIAL ACCOUNT DIRECTOR – BIRMINGHAM

We’re looking for an ambitious Account Director / Senior Account Director who is up to the challenge of leading award-winning work for consumer brands.

You’ll have a great track record developing creative ideas across PR, social and influencer.  Your clients will love you and you are proud of the work you have done for them.  You’re passionate about what you do and will love nothing better than leading a successful new business pitch. You also care about your colleagues and will have the drive and determination to lead a successful team.  

We want a bold, brave thinker who wants to change the way things are done.  Someone who can provide the very best service to our clients, combining sound strategy and insight with effective creativity and delivery.  

Already known for award-winning work, we’re keen to build on our success and create even greater clout in the future.  This is an exciting opportunity to join the senior team of one of the biggest and fastest growing regional PR and social operators with 60+ people in Birmingham, Bristol, Milton Keynes and London.  

 

Why would you want to work here? 

McCann Central is the UK’s largest integrated agency, with over 500 forward-thinking individuals working together to help brands play a significant role in people’s lives.

We’re one of the most successful agencies in McCann’s global network and most of our people are based outside London, proving you don’t have to uproot and move to the capital in order to work on world-class campaigns. In fact, a significant number have moved in the opposite direction and seen their careers continue to flourish.

We’re also part of McCann Worldgroup, a global agency network that delivers groundbreaking work for some of the world’s biggest brands. To back this up, McCann Worldgroup has recently been voted the most effective global agency, Campaign’s European Integrated Agency of the Year and McCann Central walked away from Cannes Lions 2018 weighed down by not one, but four Lions.

McCann Central is a place where ideas flourish, with a culture that’s both encouraging and unafraid to push boundaries. We’re home to a team of incredible thinkers and doers, from an eclectic mix of backgrounds, with a truly omnichannel approach.

 

And the rewards?

In addition to a competitive salary we are committed to creating a brilliant environment for all our people. This includes benefits such as 28 days holiday, plus the opportunity to buy more holiday, enhanced pension contributions, life assurance and much more.

A culture of learning and development is also central to our ethos, so you’ll have access to industry leading training and development programmes, plus you’ll get to work closely with the world’s biggest media partners to access exclusive features and products.

Most importantly, you’ll be part of a fun and collaborative team and you’ll work in an environment where you are supported, pushed and developed.

 

The truth

At McCann, we’ve spent more than a century building successful brands using one simple philosophy: Truth Well Told. It’s our belief that consumer insights based on truth are crucial to building brands that last.

Working with McCann will be both fun and challenging. We want you to grow with us and create work our clients will be excited about and that you will feel proud of.

Our commitment to equal opportunities

For us, diversity is a business imperative – one that must be embedded into every aspect of how we operate in order to drive success. Simply put, we believe an encouraging and inclusive environment makes sound business sense.

As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, it’s vital that the talent mix in our agencies encompass all dimensions of diversity, and that we demand the same of the people we work with.

Conscious inclusion encompasses social, cultural and cognitive differences and cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It is the integration of this philosophy that allows us to create meaningful experiences for our employees, drive better business practices with our vendors and clients, and ultimately lead with purpose.
