We're hiring: Account Director

Based in our Aberdeen Agency

The Job Description

Our account directors are in control of their own destiny.

Fifth Ring is an organisation that offers its people the opportunity to be a part of a small team, with global reach. Our account managers are not a cookie cutter group, but rather a group of people that make their mark on an organisation while working towards a shared goal.

An account director with Fifth Ring is a marketing enthusiast with an eye for the big picture. One that understands project and budget management, and dives deep to know everything about a client’s product or service.

Do you like solving puzzles? Do you enjoy building things from scratch? We need an account manager that enjoys building strategies and assembling groups of people to work towards and achieve a common objective. One that knows how to work with all kinds of people, and all client types. One that gets excited when the pieces come together.

An account director with Fifth Ring knows and loves their business and their clients. It’s the love bit that makes them a fantastic person to work with, and a great ambassador for the Fifth Ring brand.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to speak with you. Send us your cv.
