What to expect 

The role is office based but you will be expected to network and socialize regularly with clients and attend a range of industry events and exhibitions. 

-The office environment is young, dynamic, and increasingly multicultural. It’s a work- hard, play-hard culture. – Working at the cutting edge of new technology you will be expected to grasp changes in technical innovation across multiple platforms.

– Overnight absence from home may occasionally be required.

– You’ll have the satisfaction of seeing what you and your team create in the marketplace 

e.g. billboards, on television and other media.

– You’ll be busy working to tight deadlines and juggling multiple projects. This high pressure environment can be stressful at times, but the end result is worth it. 

Working hours 

Working hours are usually 8 am to 7 pm, although evening hours and staying late are a big part of making sure that the job is delivered. As a creative director, you’ll be expected to work long hours on major campaigns.
