General Manager - Design agency

Lead a team in the Melbourne office of an independent Design studio, with role responsibilities split across client service, new business and general people/business management. Their current workloads are focused around a key client and in the brand and comms space but they are looking to replicate other offices by bringing on more clients and increasing the diversity of their projects, particularly in the digital space.

You will get an opportunity to be the face of a business and work closely with a strong leadership team in their other offices. A rare opportunity to join an independent studio with multiple offices at a Senior level and deal directly with owners, without the red tape of a network agency.

They have a very well established, key client which needs a strong client lead but there is an expectation that this person will bring in new business. You will have autonomy on how and who you do new business with but you have to have that "hunter" mentality.

Ideally, you will come from design studio background as a Group Account Director, Client Services Director or established General Manager. Design / branding is needed but a strong understanding of design in the digital world would be perfect to drive that work in Melbourne, which they can service immediately via the other offices who have these skills in house.

Melbourne agency/client network experience is also a must-have due to the who you know market here.

Salary dependent on experience with great bonus potential on top.
