Account Director

Switched on, straight-talking, and brimming with ideas, you thrive on results. From bespoke ideation to content creation, you’re a conversation crafter and a business builder. If you’re motivated by what gets people talking, clicking, and sharing, your future is at Motive PR.

This Account Director post is no pigeon-hole role, following rigid processes, set soundbites, and corporate claxons. You’ll be the architect of creative campaigns and collaborative teams, you’ll shape our top-level management strategy, and you’ll drive our quest to become the market-leading digital PR agency in e-commerce.

This isn’t just a role; it’s a journey, and we’re already on track, having recently been crowned Small PR Consultancy of the Year at the 2021 Chartered Institute of Public Relations Pride Midlands Awards. But we don’t plan on being small forever – and that’s where you come in.

Do you offer…?

PR agency experience – at least five years, ideally
Demonstrable success – national-level PR coverage and/or award-winning campaigns
Experience managing/mentoring account managers and/or a team of junior staff
Motive PR specialises in digital PR and e-commerce. Our high-impact campaigns pack a punch with fun, original, and penetrating engagement to deliver a strong ROI for the client.

This Account Director role will build on what drives you: how you’re alive to PR opportunities; how you’re consultative but also authoritative; and how you can conjure innovative ideas for content.

Building new and existing relationships with clients and journalists, you’ll craft the quality bespoke ideation we deliver in every PR project. In doing so, you’ll manage but also nurture our team of successful junior PR staff as they learn and progress their careers.
