Account Director

Ready to grow?

You believe that effective experience design can do extraordinary things for clients—and that motivates you to build relationships that drive growth for them and revenue for the agency. You’re an active listener, a trusted advisor, a make-it-happen kind of person. And you’re ready for a new challenge at a different kind of agency—a brand experience agency that’s ideas-led, creatively driven and full of true believers in the power of brand experience to connect brands and people in ways that transform our clients’ business.

Meet Jack.

The Sydney office of Jack Morton Worldwide is looking for an Account Director with 6-8 years’ experience in an agency environment to join its team.

As an Account Director, you’ll sit within the Growth team and be accountable for working with your clients to build their business and drive year-on-year growth for the agency.

Every member of this team has to embody the following competencies:
Entrepreneurial instincts – You won’t settle for the status quo. You’ll be curious. You’ll follow a thread and see opportunities where others don’t. You’ll understand a need and find a solution to meet it.
Bravery – You know what to do when you’ve got nothing to do and you won’t be afraid of the unknown or the blank piece of paper
Passion for the strategy – You’ll be able to have the complex conversations at a broader business level and be able to sell in the strategic story
Big picture thinker – You will think business knowledge, not operational. Selling the project, not delivering it. Defining the scope, not managing it
Champion of Jack Morton – Exemplify passion for the company by embracing and modelling our purpose of ‘Do Something Extraordinary’ and our values of Passion, Agility and Respect.

What you’ll be doing:
• Working to understand your clients’ businesses while simultaneously educating clients about how we can help
• Driving year-over-year revenue growth and building client relationships as a trusted partner and advisor
• Fostering integrated solutions and incremental opportunities that leverage all Jack Morton’s offerings
• Leading the development and presentation of proposals, then overseeing sold work from planning to creative to execution
• Managing communications with account teams and clients, ensuring clarity about accountabilities, deadlines, budget and approvals
• Overseeing client profitability, account budgeting and measurement metrics that demonstrate clear return to the client
• Collaborating across the office’s and worldwide agency’s community of creative, strategy, growth and operations colleagues to share ideas, resources and best practices
• Managing, mentoring, coaching, hiring, recruiting and fiercely protecting the agency culture that makes Jack a great place to work

Most importantly, we’re looking for people who are a good fit for Jack’s agency culture. It’s as simple as this: You take the work seriously, but not yourself.
