Tea&Cake PR is looking for an experienced Account Director to work across the fashion and sport division of the agency.

We are a young, ambitious, growing agency who specialize in communications for fashion, sport and lifestyle brands. Our down to earth , creative and results driven approach is what sets us aside from our competitors. We strive to offer unbeatable client service and genuinely see ourselves as an extension of our client's team.

Most importantly, you will need to be a great team player who can lead and inspire - and who enjoys working in small-medium size agency environment.

  • AD to 4-5 different clients
  • Management and direction of team - up to around 6 different staff
