  • Proactivity and ability to work autonomously
  • An interest in the developing trends and innovations for advertising and design
  • Be able to manage numerous briefs and liaise with the client teams on a regular basis
  • Lead pitches for new campaigns

Who you are:

  • Experienced as a creative art director with a portfolio to show it
