Account Director

We’re looking for a highly skilled Account Director to oversee the growth and direction of our most important clients. 

Ignite specialises in bringing creativity, technology and strategy together – to create innovative solutions for our clients. We have a broad range of clients including Meta, Marriott, Deliveroo and the first University to launch in 40 years – The London Interdisciplinary School. 

We have an exciting mix of talents at the agency – from brand strategists, to ideators, marketers, content creators, 3D artists and tech innovators. And our clients come to us with a diverse range of opportunities, problems and briefs. Anything from websites to branding, app development, social content and multi channel marketing campaigns. 

We’re looking for an accomplished Account Director who can lead the charge – directing what we should be doing with a client and then ensuring it happens to a high standard. There is very little we can’t do as a group, and this is an incredibly exciting opportunity for someone looking to undertake an interesting project mix – and be part of taking our work to the next level. 

You would work directly with our Creative Director, Strategy Director, MD and Marketing Director across our client mix. 

Example projects include:

  • Building the future of education in the Metaverse for Meta 
  • Taking Pho’s marketing to the next level with high profile campaigns and the full digital marketing mix 
  • Supercharging the growth of the first University to launch in 40 years
  • Rebrand of Drake & Morgan, and the strategic growth of their business

We have a strong foothold in hospitality, so a passion for restaurants, bars and hotels is essential. Who doesn’t like to eat, drink and sleep, right?! But we work in many sectors – and have ambitions for aggressive growth – specifically in the Education, Sports and Tech sectors. 

We have big plans to invest in the creative growth of the Ignite brand. This ranges from developing our own fashion label to Ignite NFTs, virtual and physical events – and building out a space in the metaverse. We believe that our work for the Ignite brand will carve out a new space in the digital landscape and are looking for people excited by this vision. 

We hire people that share our beliefs, drive and passions. We’re a small agency of 45 people – but with big hearts and ideas. Growth minded, high energy and full of life – we’re looking for the right fit to slot into our Director Suite and help realise our ambitions. 

With offices in London, Milan, New York and Florida – we have a global outlook and reach. Our team works from all over the world, but there’s nothing like human contact – and this role will centre around our London office.

  • Working with Strategy Director and Managing Director to oversee the growth of the top agency clients
