Leading a team is a big responsibility.
Managing a team comes with a lot of accountability.
But running a team of ‘creatives’ should come with a health warning.
It’s the hand waving you see.
The constant demand for perfection.
The insistence that no one gets it, no one can see their vision.
Jeez, it’s exhausting.
It’s also the heartbeat of any agency.
Without creativity, we might as well close up shop.
This is why running this department is so important.
You’ve got to know creative, to lead creatives.
Being a people person isn’t enough, your team need to know you get it, you get them but most importantly, they trust your decisions.
Coz you WILL be making all the decisions.
Workflow, project mapping, traffic management, resource planning, scope creep, milestones, touch points, internal comms and profitability.
Yeah I said profitability.
Coz moon on a stick doesn’t come cheap, so your negotiating powers will be severely tested as you talk them down off the ceiling into the real world.
So, if you’re ready to take the step up, take control of what goes out the door and like to push the red tape whilst respecting the reason it’s there, click apply and let’s chat.
Don’t worry if your CV isn’t up to date, we can deal with that later.
