This is a truly exciting and new opportunity in every sense of the word, and within a fast-paced, evolving agency, with a super cool culture, that specialises within the food and beverage sector.

This opportunity is Birmingham based and so whether you still have the pull toward city living or would like to settle in a regency town or village with easy network access, location here makes these all viable options. This is a very reputable, successful agency working with exciting leading brands, that will enable you to continue your career working with high profile clients.

Our client is a well-established, highly successful, full service agency specialising in the food and beverage industry. They provide a huge scope of 2D and 3D creative across brand, experiential and interiors for their clients, including well known pub groups and restaurant chains (some of which are global). Their offices are based in central Birmingham; a fantastic building with huge spaces and amazing city views. Walking around this creative hub you meet Account Managers, Directors, Graphic Designers, Interior Designers, all creating a vibrant, cheerful atmosphere and bringing true dedication and exceptional talent to this remarkable agency.

The Role

An opportunity has now arisen for an Agency Account Director to join their friendly client services team. If you are an commercially driven Account Director who would love to combine your love of café/bar culture into your day job, then this is a chance to work with brands that will excite you, in an agency where you will be empowered to make a difference both to your clients and your dedicated team!

This is a new opening and you will be one of the key Account Director roles within the agency, so experience at this level and within the F&B is ideal, but we would love to talk to anyone from Retail/FMCG too.

  • You will need to truly thrive when taking the lead on some key and very important accounts to the agency
  • You will be the key Account Director working alongside the management team and client services and you will need to love driving day-to-day client development, and be absolutely passionate about the roll out of existing projects, whilst also thinking about the bigger picture
  • We need a hunter who will seek out opportunity beyond the brief, and maximise client relationships across their impressive F&B client base
  • There is plenty of scope here to make your mark, and the opportunity to grow relationships and plan future development is huge

Joining an existing client services team as one of the senior team members, you will need to 'gel' into this friendly team with ease, be enthusiastic and able to 'influence'. It's vital that the Account Director can add value from the top to ensure top notch delivery of projects across promotional branding, to 'in-pub/restaurant' collateral, experiential and 3D/Interiors.

About You

We would love to talk to you if you have F&B or retail experience and a genuine passion for branding. Our client needs gravitas, motivation and experience to gain the trust and respect of their valued clients and team
