As an account lead, you will be responsible for leading a team and serving as the client’s day-to-day contact, providing campaign oversight, teaching, mentoring, removing hurdles and delivering results. You should have at least 10 years of agency experience, working primarily with lifestyle brands and have a track record of driving dynamic teams and delivering incredible results. We’re looking for dynamic personalities here – creative and humble, but also confident leaders with a strong sense of team. To put it simply, you’d be the first person someone would want to lead them out if they got lost in the woods. You may even be asked to start a fire with nothing more than a stick in the interview – seriously, just one stick and your mind.
