The Company

A newly formed agency focusing on helping clients with their sustainability efforts across APAC for heritage brands as well as growing startups, including F&B and plant-based protein alternatives, sustainability game-changers, internationally renowned names in hospitality and tourism, and more.

This agency supports clients to creatively transform existing materials into something of greater value, tailoring communications solutions directly to business needs, providing meaningful, smartly crafted strategies that make an impact and create value.

The existing international team leverages both a global mindset and strong local experience, and that allows the team to think big picture yet suggest achievable, creative ideas that are relevant locally and regionally in the post-COVID climate.


The Role

We are recruiting an experienced, passionate Account Director to join a supportive, results-driven, dynamic team. A fully rounded communications operator with a thorough understanding of all elements of the PR and marketing mix, you will be accountable for the strategic direction of a high value client portfolio, reporting directly to the Co-founders.
  
You’ll drive and lead smartly-crafted integrated communications campaigns for brands across lifestyle, F&B, travel and sustainability.
  
Responsible for client servicing and strategy across the client portfolio, you will be driving results, managing client relationships, mentoring the team as well as championing best practices across the board.
  
You will also contribute to the growth of the business through proactively pitching and developing new business opportunities with our internal team as well as our creative agency partners.
  
We’re looking for an organised and experienced team player with a positive, can-do attitude, a great rolodex, creative mindset, attention to detail and a sense of humour.
