Due to continued success and the recent win of a new account there is now an opportunity for a strong Project Director to join their team. This is a senior role within the agency where you will be responsible for managing one large account, including ensuring effective delivery and the management of financials in addition to managing a team.

Candidates must come from an agency and have extensive experience within the events sector, coming from an operational background where they have delivered UK and overseas events. Candidates must be commercially focused and have a proven background of managing and maximising accounts and associated financials previously. Any exposure to managing accounts in, or working on events within the automotive sector would be an added benefit but is not essential for this.
