At AXON Communications, we are looking for an experienced, dynamic, proactive, and responsible Account Director who would be able to hit the ground running. Within this role you will need to have experience working in Creative Marketing, holding senior account management responsibilities, supporting these at a strategic level in addition to the day-to-day management of team members. You will be a trusted advisor to your clients and alongside the Associate Director and the Senior Director of our Creative Marketing Practice, you will help build and shape the strategy for your accounts/brands, so we are pushing the highest creative standards of the whole of AXON upstream.


Your responsibilities will include but are not limited to:

  • Strong client liaison and strategic counsel in leading accounts
  • Planning and management of multiple accounts, including development of communications programs, strategies, and creative tactics with senior support as needed

Whether that’s being involved in our Social, Diversity and Inclusion, or CSR Electives, attending networking events, or running training sessions on topics in which they have a personal interest. We have a keen focus on training and development and, as a rough guide, suggest employees aim to complete 37.5 hours of learning a year. Whether that be through online learning, classroom training, or attending external events, that is 1 week a year dedicated to your development.

Candidates must have:

  • At least 6+ years’ proven experience allowing you to demonstrate key competencies at this level, having worked with line manager(s) to address gaps and provide relevant opportunities.
