Associate Creative Director
Job Type: Permanent / 6 months rolling
Salary:£65,000 - £75,000
Consultant:Amelia Sanderson
Reports to:  Director
leading global PR and communications consultancy with working in 35 languages across 85 countries. With a team of editors, creatives, strategists and planners work together to deliver content strategies to help improve their clients’ business challenges. They seamlessly align brand stories with customer’s needs, to deliver data that informs more personalised brand and social engagement, and that simply, helps them make their customers lives better.
The Role:
This is an exciting and fast-paced role for a highly experienced ACD looking to make waves on two of the world’s biggest and most innovative brands. Reporting into the Global Creative Lead, you will take creative responsibility for several workstreams, ranging from print to digital to strategy. No two days will look the same, but every day will be an exciting creative challenge.
Responsibilities will include, but are by no means limited to:
  • Lead creative projects with budgets ranging from $10k - $250k-plus, end to end.
  • Develop ideas from conception to activation, working with art and production teams to bring innovative thinking and ground breaking creative to life.
  • Manage and lead creative teams, providing feedback to develop ideas to drive creative excellence, fit the brief, and be on brand.
  • Be the brand guardian the final point of quality control to ensure that everything that goes to the client is 100% on brand.
  • Edit and write copy - from 3-word ATL headlines to 1,000 word thought leadership articles.
  • Work with producers to plan and run shoots, also managing relationships with clients and talent before and during shoots.
  • Develop video and conceptual ideas, working with the Creative Director to bring them to life.
  • Work with an Art Director to develop video storyboards and scripts.
  • Write copy and develop assets for social media.
  • Commission and brief contributors as required, in order to receive high-quality creative content on time while adhering to budget.
  • Create flat plans and content plans for magazines.
  • Work closely with clients, both responding to briefs and leading creative check-ins throughout the process.
  • Build stunning RTB and WIP decks, and present to clients
About you
  • You have over five years’ experience in a senior creative role. This could be at an ad agency, integrated creative agency, or content agency. (Whilst the work we create is ‘content’, the nature of this is multifaceted, ranging from BTL magazines to ATL campaigns; print to video; short-form to long-form.)
  • You’re insanely organised. You have a way of categorising your emails so nothing slips through the cracks, and to-do-list skills to die for. You can juggle 15 workstreams at any one time, all with different deadlines, clients and teams - and deliver on all 15.
  • You’re a curious creative. You’re always looking for ways to innovate, to create work that will break boundaries and win awards.
  • You might be a former journalist or copywriter, but you’re interested in more than just writing articles, constantly exploring new and engaging formats, and thinking visual-first.
  • You care about creating work that will travel, that will have an impact and that will be shared. Proper thought leadership, not filler.
  • You are passionate and knowledgeable about technology, from AI and ML through to self-driving cars.
  • You understand the current media landscape, and know how to adapt messaging dependent on whether you’re speaking to a CEO, CMO or Media Buyer (ideally you’ll be well versed on the trade titles, and will know the industry inside out).
  • You’re a pro with Google Slides/Docs, and brilliant at building beautiful decks.
  • You’re an incredible salesperson. You can get clients excited, and get them to buy ideas they didn’t even know they wanted.
  • You’re adept with the Adobe suite, and comfortable making copy changes on page where needed. You’re also comfortable with Keynote, though you’ve mostly given it up for the aforementioned Google Slides.
  • You have a bank of image refs and ideas… or at least a great Pinterest/Instagram to pull them from.
  • You’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty, or working long hours where needed (though you believe in a good work-life balance).
  • You’re up to speed with changes in Search, and are interested in how Google and YouTube can work for brands in delivering business impact.
  • You’re able to approach a wide range of briefs from a strategic POV - always thinking about what
