Hi all. I am currently working with a top network media agency that is looking for an established media Business Director to cover a maternity leave. You will primarily be working on one of the largest accounts for the agency - a business that is one of the biggest advertisers in the UK & globally. For this particular opportunity you will be focusing on the UK market, and you will be instrumental in maintaining and growing a strong client relationship whilst also ensuring the output from the internal agency teams is of the highest quality.
