Account Director

Are you an Account Director who wants to expect more of your role and deliver more from your accounts?

At Sparro, we Expect More, and so do our clients. We don’t stay in our lane – we do what it takes to deliver more value and innovation.

And it pays. We’ve won more Google Premier Partner awards than any other agency and, now in our 8th year and at 50 staff, we’re continuing to see exceptional growth.

We’re now looking for an incredible industry leader to help us continue our success.

THE ROLE

Deliver challenge, innovation and thought leadership.

The Account Director is a senior leader in the business, working with multiple teams of ambitious, young digital marketers to develop and champion key client strategies and campaigns.

The client list includes some of Australia’s leading retailers and corporates; many with 5+ years of tenure.

The Director is an innovator, always seeking to outperform the market and develop automation, ideas and strategies that can be propagated across the business.

As a growing business, we’re looking to be challenged, ourselves. There’s huge scope to impact the future of Sparro, including our diversification and growth.

Key Responsibilities

  • Liaise with key clients at a senior level, developing strong professional relationships and solving business problems.
  • Develop client projects in line with business and channel objectives.
  • Engage and empower cluster leaders and teams to develop and implement channel solutions.
  • Advise the business on high-level strategic direction, and channel and technology opportunities.
  • Develop team skills and culture in line with business direction and client requirements, focusing on new channels and opportunities.
  • Be an ambassador for the Sparro values and culture.
  • Lead key new business and cross-sell opportunities.
YOU

You live for results, and you expect the best from yourself and your team.

The Director moves fast, and engages and empowers the team around them to get stuff done. But, they’re not afraid to jump in themselves and get their hands dirty.

They’ve worked at all levels of the funnel, but look to data, over everything else, to make their decisions.

There is significant scope for progression into a Key/Senior Account Director or Strategy Lead role, while contributing to the wider direction of the business and culture as we continue to expand and diversify.

Your experience

  • Highly-effective and confident client, stakeholder and staff management skills; including the ability to plan and host client and staff workshops, training sessions, pitches and meetings. 
  • Exceptional communication, interpersonal and multi-level leadership skills.
  • An advanced ability to independently plan, strategise, and mobilise to achieve a project.
  • A confident and considered approach to problem solving and project management.
  • Full awareness of digital channels and tactics with hands-on skills in at least one discipline or channel.
  • A natural talent for exploring and workshopping business objectives, using data and digital skills to develop project plans.
  • Hands-on skills in at least one channel or discipline, with a high level of working knowledge in all major channels.
