We're looking for:

Account Director

Summary

Job Title: Account Director

Location: New York, San Diego, Austin

Salary: Dependent on experience

Employment: Full Time

Department: Client Services

At Ph.Creative we have a vision that one day everyone will love their job. We want to help everyone find their perfect job in a perfectly matched team.

We’re a globally recognized leading employer-branding agency. We’re changing how businesses prioritise the value of who they are as an employer and we’re committed to helping them discover the true value they can offer to the people who join them.

If you were to sit with the team at Ph, whether in Liverpool, London, New York or San Diego, you would see people who care about the work and care about each other. There’s a relaxed vibe you get when you sit amongst the team here. They have a confidence in their work and the skill, drive and grit to get things done.

It’s so nice to work amongst smart, creative people who each have the autonomy to make a judgement call, fix something that’s not working or to attempt something we’ve not done before – that’s not unusual at Ph. It’s not for everyone, but for people who love energetic collaboration, bouncing around ideas, operating outside of traditional thinking and challenging conventions, Ph. can be a lot of fun.

“It’s a really creative place and the team is amazing. It’s a great group of friends.”

Elizabeth McCarthy
- Account Manager

We’re creative, effective, brave, and fun, and we want you to be too.

So here’s a couple of questions for you…

  • Are you brave enough to reject work that’s not good enough to put in front of your clients?
  • Are you open to exploring new ways to find the solutions we need to deliver client success?
  • Are you willing to think like an owner and prioritize doing the right thing by your clients?
  • Do you take your work seriously and put yourself into everything you deliver?
  • And, at the same time, do you remember not to take yourself too seriously?

You can tell the answers we're looking for. So you should have a pretty good idea what it takes to fit right in here. But what’s in it for you?
