Out of home is quickly evolving into one of the most exciting and digitally important media available.

Our client has the realistic aspiration of being one of the top 3 global digital companies over the next few years. Currently 50% of all spend with the business is digital.  

The role of Agency Account Director

This role is on the west-end agency team. Therefore, as Agency Account Director you will be selling the benefits of Digital Out-of-home media to your agency contacts; sharing campaign examples and successes, digital innovations, new inventory, latest research and targeting options etc. The aim of your role is to maximise the share of campaign spend for Digital Out-of-home.
