Are you an enthusiastic, experienced media and communications planner, who sets their ambitions high and loves free breakfast?! Then you’ve come to the right place!
Who are we?
Carat’s mission is to Redefine Media. We achieve better business outcomes for our clients through the command of media convergence. Established in 1968 as the world’s first media agency, Carat is part of Dentsu Aegis Network, the global communications network, Innovating the Way Brands Are Built. Consistently at the top of RECMA’s Global Qualitative Evaluation ranking, Carat serves clients in 150 countries via a network of more than 9,000 talented staff.
Here at Carat our people are put first; working from a beautiful open-plan office based a stone’s throw from Regent’s Park which is surrounded by cafés and restaurants, so you’re never short of something to get for lunch.
What’s the job? What will I actually do?
We are on the hunt for a Client Director to work across two of our most innovative accounts, Mondelez (80%) & Jacobs Douwe Egberts (20%)!
Your fundamental role is across 4 aspects:
- Developing the client relationship
- Owning the regional media plan for your brands
- Ensuring the local Carat offices are aligned
- Driving commercial performance on the account
In the role of Client Director, you will own the relationship with the client, you will ensure implementation of the strategic vision (with support, of course), you’ll deliver business financial targets and be an ambassador for Carat, connecting across internal and external networks. You will be the lead day-today senior point of contact for Mondelez on Philadelphia and for JDE. You must have a skillset and aptitude to help your clients make better marketing decisions.
Reporting into the Mondelez Managing Partner, you will contribute to the global Business Plan by always leveraging Carat product and driving the Aegis commercial agenda.
You will have an overview of all aspects of the account and able to be involved in everything from idea generation and innovative thinking through to business development planning and digital strategy. Crucially, you are in charge of bringing the disparate elements of DAN together, it is your job to ensure that best in class collaboration occurs between strategy, planners, digital and any other relevant specialist service teams.
Every output from the account is ultimately your responsibility. This over sight extends from the briefing and planning work through to local market execution. Part of this process will also of course involve the work of the Planners and Network Managers in their roles and deliverables. At every stage you will aim for high quality, consistency and innovative thinking.
But, what can we offer you?
Our agency drives culture through our own employees, with clearly set objectives there is unprecedented potential for career progression, with almost 75% of our roles being filled by internal promotions. You will have access to Dentsu Aegis’ training and development programmes, you’ll work closely with the world’s biggest media partners to access exclusive features and products (tier one partnerships with Google, Facebook and Twitter!)

But most importantly you’ll be part of a fun and collaborative team culture, and you will work in an environment where you are supported, pushed and developed!
We value the strength diversity brings to our business and are working hard to build a more inclusive workplace through partnerships with Stonewall, Business Disability Forum and Business in the Community’s race and gender equality campaigns.
