Board Director (Central London), Corporate
C £80,000 - £100,000 (REF. LB509257)

Respected global agency London hub is looking to hire a Board Director to head up and continue to grow its Corporate Practice. With a small and talented team already in place to support you, you’ll provide a comprehensive range of corporate communications solutions to a diverse portfolio of issues-rich clients, from food and retail to telecommunications. The role is very much about growth, so you’ll need proven new business skills. Building the business will be fundamental to your approach, at least in the short-term. Beyond this, you’ll bring leadership and the ability to really integrate across large global strands. What’s more, you’ll be adept at shaping strategy, particularly involving crisis and issues management, but also broadly across thought leadership and reputation management. It’s the perfect opportunity for an ambitious Senior Associate Director to step up into a Practice Head role and really make their mark.

Associate Director (Central London), Healthcare
£80,000 (REF. LB509133)

This specialist healthcare practice within a global consultancy is in growth mode and needs to hire a passionate and visionary Associate (or an established Senior Account Director). Work around life-threatening diseases will be pivotal to this role so experience within this area would be of great interest to the team. In addition to your specialist or more generalist ethical experience, you’ll have all the skills expected of a senior-level practitioner: exceptional client handling skills and the strategic nous needed to deliver stand-out communications programmes. You’ll have a keen eye for new business opportunities and enjoy operating at senior level in collaboration with the Head of Practice.

Senior Associate (or Board) Director, London, Consumer
£80,000+ (REF. LB508498)

This leading global public relations consultancy is keen to hire a first-rate Senior Associate Director, possibly even a Board Director, to step into a demanding role within its technology team. You’ll help the team’s MD to drive the future of the team, both in terms of people management and client work. As a heavyweight yourself, you’ll be able to exhibit finely-honed skills in brand communications, having worked on some significant B2B technology campaigns that have really made a difference, and you’ll have the ability to ensure a comprehensive understanding of clients’ business objectives and know how to translate them into concrete projects and plans. Can you manage a P&L, lead a mid-sized, talented team and help cultivate an already first-rate offer?

The Associate Director role is an important and pivotal one. Alongside client work, you’ll be cultivating opportunities and leading pitch teams, therefore previous consultancy experience is vital and relationship building will come naturally. You’ll be joining a business that is strong, independent and has grown 30% year on year offering great promise for further growth.
