JOB PURPOSE

Group Account Heads at Byte lead on all the work we deliver for a suite of clients and they sit in our structure alongside the other ‘Heads of…’ (e.g. Media, Creative).

We don’t believe in siloed teams – content, technology, media and data overlap in all roles at Byte. This person will oversee development of the strategy for the brands they lead, including managing a team. They will represent Byte to our clients, adding value to relationships beyond organizational skills, doing a mixture of account management and strategic planning, not your typical suit.

We need someone who understands our clients' customers, who can put themselves in their shoes to create strategies and ideas that exceed expectations, who understands that brands are competing for consumers’ attention and have at best a couple of seconds to inspire some sort of interaction. We need people who can come up with big ideas, as well as lots of little ones that are framed in a solid strategy grounded in insight, and ultimately deliver a tangible ROI for our clients. Most importantly, we need a leader who inspires their team and earns the respect of senior clients.

Candidates must have experience managing teams and complex campaigns for brands and be calm and controlled in high pressure situations. Likewise, experience with delivering commercial success in an agency model is important.
