An AD is a senior figure in the agency. You will be a principal point of contact for the client with responsibility for managing and growing accounts and/or team management. The Associate Director will still be ‘hands on’ with the research, with a greater emphasis on proposals, project design, team management, overseeing project delivery and presentations and should demonstrate an authoritative level of market sector and technical knowledge. You will also be able to contribute to technical developments in the business as well as have some involvement in company management issues.
The team is made up of passionate qualitative and quantitative specialists, working with blue chip clients across financial services, retail and media with particular expertise in customer experience, product and service development work as well as branding and comms.

This has led to great retention and a happy focussed team to work with. This could be the opportunity to head North for or you may already know the manifold advantages of a professional and personal life focussed around the buzzing city of Leeds.
