Account Director (Social Media)
Cubaka is an award-winning Social Media agency based in the UK. We work with brands including Mattel Toys (Scrabble, Barbie and Thomas the Tank Engine), Linda McCartney Foods, Lindt Chocolate, Sixt Car Rental, The British Heart Foundation, Avanti West Coast Trains, Toyota and the Royal British Legion, amongst others.
We're on the hunt for our next superstar Account Director to join our lively team in Great Portland Street, London (and at home), working across a number of exciting clients.
Our team is a friendly mix of Strategists, Creatives, Account Managers, Account Executives, Media Planners and Buyers - all with one goal: creating work that wins people's time on social media, in the most exciting ways possible.
As an Account Director at Cubaka, you will:
A self-starter: Have an entrepreneurial attitude to work, enjoy running your own projects, finding solutions to challenges when they crop up and pulling in the right people to create the best result.
Client Service King/Queen: Build relationships with clients, and be their 'go-to' person that they trust implicitly to develop their projects.
Team & Time Management Pro: Manage the delivery of social media campaigns and content plans, from start to finish, working with colleagues from across the business to deliver on time, on budget and to client expectations.
A stickler for budget tracking: The sexy part of any Account Managers role, I think you'll agree. You'll pull together a scope of work, presenting a budget proposal, and keeping a track of the accounts finances as the work rolls out.
Social Media Expert: Knowledgeable in all things social and digital marketing. You know your Instagram Stories from your TikTok trending sounds, can rattle off examples of social best practice and have a point of view on the latest campaigns.
5+ Years experience in a client-facing agency role managing social and digital campaigns for well-known brands, and already at Senior Account Manager or Account Director level.
Previous experience of line managing a client services team and supporting the development of more junior colleagues.
An understanding of best practice client servicing, from to client management, expectation setting, communication and correspondence.
Experience managing timelines, estimates, budgets and invoices.
Passion for, and knowledge of, all things social and digital marketing.
Unlimited holiday (oh yes!)
Free breakfast in the office
Auto-enrolment pension, with up to 8% contribution
Regular socials and team-building sessions
Annual salary review, quarterly performance reviews
Choice of company Apple MacBook Pro or PC
Hybrid office working (approx 2 days in the office, 3 days at home - flexible)

Workplace & culture
We work in a supportive hybrid environment with a culture that enables us to celebrate our differences as people from diverse backgrounds. We are challenged daily by our mission to inch towards making better versions of ourselves which translates into the growth of our brands and making them better.
We are growth consultants. We are obsessed with finding ways to help our customers grow sustainably whether that’s focused on their revenue, brands or impact on the world. Everything we do is driven by data and embraces technology. We employ close to 4,000 people across 42 offices in 15 countries, incorporating 22 subsidiary agencies spanning digital content, marketing, PR, consumer, technology, marketing software, market research, public affairs and policy communications.
Our mission is to become the world’s leading growth consultancy. For Next 15, growth consulting isn’t just about growth in sales and profitability. It is growth in reputation, talent and product market share. It’s growth in valuation, innovation and talent retention. Growth is a complex problem, and it needs a sophisticated solution.
Businesses are increasingly one large, interconnected digital entity. A problem or opportunity in one area is now connected to everything else. We view our clients through this digital lens to knit together insight, creative, business design, digital build and customer engagement under one roof to solve today’s most pressing business challenges.
Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance
We have accelerated our commitment to running a more sustainable, equitable and diverse organisation that displays leadership in governance and values. We are using the internationally recognised B Corp framework to focus our strategy on people, planet and profit.
