We are looking for an Associate Director [we’ll also look at very strong AD/SAD level candidates] to cover a maternity leave in a boutique, financial services specialist agency. This agency work across the full spectrum when it comes to financial services: wealth management, asset management, fintech, financial consulting and more.
Set up approximately 15 years by communications experts with big agency backgrounds, the firm has gone from strength to strength and has a well-respected reputation in the sector. In addition to having digital skills in house, they are also part of a broader marketing group, enabling staff to repeat the benefits of shared resources.
Culturally the company and team is corporate “with a small c” – it’s a fast paced, busy team with a prestigious client list, but one where flexibility is enabled. Diversity and inclusion is important to the agency and to this end, over 60% of its leadership team is women.
The Role – Associate Director, 1 year FTC
The person you’ll be covering officially goes on maternity leave in March, but the agency is happy to on board someone from January due to the amount of work they currently have. You’ll need a proven track record of working on financial services clients and to be passionate about the financial ecosystem, with sound client counsel skills and sector knowledge. As this is covering someone else on the team, the client work is more important than the new business element however if applicable there may be a requirement to contribute to pitches.
A full JD can be provided upon application, but key responsibilities will include:
- Managing a portfolio of clients and acting as the day to day lead on accounts
- Provide strategic communications advice to C level executives and senior clients
- Devising long term strategies for clients and overseeing implementation by the team
- Working with the leadership team in regards to resourcing, performance reviews and staff mentoring
- Ensuring quality output from the account team
