Associate Creative Director (Art Direction)This job listing has expired
Specifics and responsibilities
We are looking for an Associate Creative Director to join an award winning team. You will be the creative director for one or more specified clients/brands, leading, driving and crafting work from the wider team. You will have support from the ECD when required, but it will usually be your responsibility to sign off and direct creative, maintain an excellent standard of execution and concept, and develop creative opportunities to make famous work.
As a creative director on a specific account, idea generation can still often play a part in your role (e.g. when a brief hasn't been cracked by those working under you). In working with more junior members of the team, you will endeavour to help them develop their skills and thinking, providing feedback and direction that's constructive, honest and motivating wherever possible.
As an ACD, you will also operate as a senior conceptual creative working across other clients and brands. You'll be briefed on projects big and small, coming up with and developing famous ideas and smart, simple, effective work across the full spectrum of digital creativity. You will also be expected to look for additional opportunities that lie beyond the brief, or even with potential clients we might approach.
As one of the most senior members of the department, you'll have huge influence on how we grow and develop the team, and on our agency's direction as a whole.
The ideal candidate will have high-level digital agency experience and a portfolio of well-crafted, contemporary projects. They'll be overflowing with great ideas, have strong communication and collaboration skills and an ambition to do amazing, envy-of-their-peers, work. They'll be used to working quickly and efficiently when necessary, and know when and where to spend the extra time to make something great. They'll also be bloody nice and enjoy the company of other bloody nice people.
Our aim is to make famous work that's valued by both our client brands and the people that interact with it. The creative department achieves this with a combination of super-sharp ideas and exceptional craft.
Skills and experience:
Conceptual big guns
An understanding of what makes a good idea great
The ability to feedback decisively and constructively
Attention to detail and a broader strategic perspective
A track record of coming up with and developing remarkable creative concepts
An area of craft expertise (copy, art direction, design, technology, etc.)
An understanding of the possibilities and opportunities in digital, encompassing an interest in both the latest tech and new approaches to the more familiar
Excellent communication skills
Persuasive, articulate and confident in front of client
The ability to create a compelling creative presentation
The ability to collaborate with all disciplines
An active creative, cultural life
