The position.
You are a seasoned Account Director who likes to be hands-on to drive projects through from start to finish. Liaising between clients, internal teams and external partners to ensure projects are delivered to brief, on time, and within budget.

Our creative studio, located in the heart of London (W1), a stone throw from Soho, is where we come together at least 4 days a week – being studio based is very important to us and for the creative magic to happen – to enjoy the location, space and collaborate on some truly amazing global brand and experience projects.

About us.
Wildfire is a collaborative, collective of strategists, brand experts and designers united to create astounding brands and experiences, whichever the region, category, sector and demographic. Whether corporate or consumer, sport or finance, hospitality or retail, we believe an original and powerful idea, fueled by real human insight and intelligence, can ignite, spread and affect change. We use our unique approach to design brands and their experiences to create real world value for businesses.

What we believe.
Wildfire London is a place of growth – where a positive culture makes us do great things. The atmosphere allows everyone to develop, try new things and adapt to new ways of working or thinking constantly. Our benefits include gym membership discounts and a cycle-to-work scheme. We encourage overseas travel for client meetings and promote opportunities to do things together.

About you.
You will be part of a new team that we are building within account management. Providing you with opportunities to help build a team that will deliver excellence in project delivery and client management. A self-starter who likes to lead from the front and get stuck in.
