Account Director

We are looking for an Account Director to join our dynamic team to work on the Google account out of the US. We’d be open to a Senior Account Manager ready to step up.

As an Account Director, you are a creative and strategic thinker who loves learning everything there is to know about a client’s brand, business, and customer.

You’re a great communicator, a senior client handler and your teams’ biggest supporter. You remain calm when working at speed, not skipping a beat on the details and never lose sight of the bigger picture. You have an interest in organic business growth, creative excellence underpinned by passion for proactivity.

Allow us to introduce ourselves

We’re Apparent, a full-service, independent agency made up of 140 thinkers, creators and solution-makers doing what we do best. One thing you should know about us: we’ve got an entrepreneurial spirit, and we know the work worth doing doesn’t fit into neat, tidy boxes. And neither should you, for that matter.

Our warehouse space in Redfern is here for you to gather, make stuff you’re proud of and grow your strengths (even if they have nothing to do with your job description).

We punch well above our weight, with some of the biggest clients in the world on our roster, from tech giants like Google and IBM, to local icons like Tourism Australia and Cricket Australia.

Our approach? We call it the red thread. In other words, it’s the thing that connects everything we do, from the customer, through to the client and brand. On any given day you can expect to cross paths with someone in strategy, brand, creative, content production, social media, UX/UI, technology and media planning and buying. Oh and dogs, too. You’ll definitely cross paths with adorable dogs.

A few things you’ll like about working here:

  • A flexible and hybrid working policy
  • Generous parental leave and summer days off
  • Heaps of growth and training opportunities
  • 24/7 access to our employee assistance program for you and your family

The role is to:

  • Serve as the main point of contact with senior clients @ Google
  • Lead and nurture a small team of outstanding client and project managers
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams; liaising with strategic planners, creative teams, traffic and production
  • Identify opportunities for growth, pitching ideas to clients and ensuring projects are being delivered to the highest standard.
  • Report to a Senior Account Director leading the Google Chrome portfolio.

Skills you’ll need:

  • 4-5+ years agency experience managing a variety of clients, delivering creative campaigns, social assets, branding global events and digital components
  • Ideally, a keen interest in B2B Tech
  • To be a natural when collaborating with internal teams to ensure seamless delivery of work and ideas.
  • A strong understanding of how to lead projects ensure they are on budget whilst reporting on revenue forecasting.
  • Exceptional communication skills, with the ability to quickly establish rapport and trust with clients and nurture team members.
  • Outstanding attention to detail, loads of initiative and an entrepreneurial mindset
  • Experience managing, guiding and inspiring direct reports
