You will also be a valuable member of the agency’s leadership team, contributing to the growth of the agency, its people and its reputation.
Who we are…
Howorth is the B2B and technology (B2B & B2C) specialist agency within the OPR family. We’re the most awarded technology agency in Australia, working with a wide range of multi-national and home-grown brands. This includes Atlassian, Canon, Microsoft, SAP and Telstra, to name just a few. We also have a fast growing B2B portfolio of clients and work with some of the country’s best startups.
Our core values are PARTNERSHIP, INNOVATION, CREATIVITY, CURIOUSITY and BRAVERY.
Who you are…
In the role of Director, you will thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced agency environment. You will be adaptable, chameleon-like, and a great problem solver.
You will understand the fundamentals of captivating storytelling, and the channels to maximise engagement.
You will confidently lead a team, you will make brave decisions, and you will steer integrated communications campaigns that drive real business change for clients.
You will know good content when you see it.
You will work on some of the world’s biggest brands, the trailblazers, the ‘disruptors,’ the industry leaders and work with them to set new standards in communications both locally and globally with an experience-led, content first approach.
While you’ll be directly responsible for running and growing your accounts, you will also lead the growth of our technology practice and our people, receiving close support from your peers, and leaders across OPR, including digital, social, creative, content, and strategy and planning specialists.
You will join our senior leadership team and we will see you as a company leader. You’ll be expected to have high levels of accountability and responsibility to lead and drive your clients, teams and our business.
It’s not just about the work...
We always strive to put our people first and have worked hard to bring together a group of ambitious, passionate and brilliant communicators, who genuinely enjoy being together and coming to work every day.
Our culture is a key focus for everyone in the business and we’re very proud of the environment we’ve created. Furthering this, we have recently moved into an activity-based-working office – encouraging our people to work from wherever they want, whenever they want. We know the working world is changing and everyone has their own style, and we want to encourage this individuality to help our teams thrive, not simply survive.
If this sounds like the role for you, we would love to hear from you.
