We need a skilled planner and trusted advisor. We need an improviser who knows that ambiguity and changing priorities are common. We need a team player. We need an optimist.
We are hiring a talented and results–driven client director with a breadth of experience among a variety of clients, especially within the tech sector.
So, what does it take?
Landor builds some of the world’s most agile brands – brands that thrive on change. Landor’s branding services include strategy and positioning, identity and design, brand architecture, prototyping, innovation, naming and verbal identity, insights and analytics, environments and experiences, engagement, activation, and interactive.
We exist to help brands compete in an ever-changing and highly competitive world. To do our work effectively, we must have the highest standards and the most efficient practices. This is where client directors come in. They establish, build and maintain key relationships. They help drive and manage their clients’ brands and are accountable for the delivery of world-class brand-led business transformation. This role primarily focuses on leading, maintaining, and building upon our current tech clients, as well as manage and lead non-tech focused clients for variety.
What we are looking for…
Over the last 8+ years, client directors have flawlessly executed and managed a variety of tech and non-tech brands, developed teams, and grown existing and new clients – all via client services excellence and at the highest levels of client satisfaction. As a consummate professional in all they do/say/write, they have brought gravitas to all situations – internally and externally and collaborated seamlessly with other functions in the office and the region, including strategy, design, naming and verbal identity, research, activation, and brand engagement. As a client lead, they have steered and inspired a team of people, and, along with that team, ensured that all projects are delivered on time, on budget, and on scope. Client directors have driven new business initiatives and pursuits, in partnership with other directors, including qualifying leads, developing proposals, and organizing and leading the pitch process through to the win. In the technology space specifically, they have created thought leadership (led client engagements/relationships and networked with prospects).
Candidates must demonstrate the ability to interact with clients and senior management on all levels, including the C-suite. And they must possess strong communication, negotiation, presentation and organizational skills, supervisory experience, deep passion for brands and branding, and experience facilitating or leading marketing/brand management teams.
