Who are we?

We are an independent creative agency on a mission to be the most interesting agency in Ireland, and beyond. Our core philosophy is that ‘boring doesn’t sell’ - and that it’s our duty to provide brave and boundless thinking to our clients. We partner with a diverse portfolio of brands including Barnardos, 48, Redbreast, Cadbury, FBD Insurance and EPIC: The Irish Emigration Museum.

Also, we have no timesheets. That should be your first indication that we’re a great place to work.

What are we looking for?

As an agency that believes that the most dangerous thing a brand can do is play it safe, we require an Account Director with strong opinions, comfortable leading challenging conversations internally and externally, with proven experience of your pivotal role in making boundary pushing work.

We’re looking for a proven and experienced Account Director who quite simply loves the work. You understand that account handling is a tireless pursuit that is based on building ideas, not knocking them down. It’s about being all over the tiny details and the big picture. Problem solvers, business leaders, number crunchers, room readers, relationship builders, and embracers of raw, iterative work. You are a thinker as well as a doer, with the ability to step back and to plan, yet also be a focal point in the development of our strategic and creative work.

In this role you will:

  • Work closely with clients and foster enduring collective agency/client creative ambition
  • Manage strategic, creative and commercial requirements across your accounts
  • Partner with creative & strategy directors to develop clients and build brave campaigns
  • Manage a team and deliver results through others
  • Be responsible for agency performance and team performance
  • Lead creative development, oversee project delivery and lead complex projects
  • Responsible for business development, measurement & evaluation

Not surprisingly, a role this demanding requires tenacity, resilience, and genuine, relentless love of creativity (otherwise why would we do it?).

If this sounds like you then we would love a chat.

Agency benefits:

  • Salary dependent on experience
  • 20 days holiday plus Christmas closures
  • Performance related bonus/ Profit Share
  • Spotify subscription
  • Hybrid working (2/3 days in office)
  • Flexible working
  • Remote working e.g. work 100% remotely for 1 month from anywhere in the world
  • Training & dev fund
  • Christmas All41 voucher
  • Career development planning
  • Early finish on Fridays
  • 0% gender pay gap
