Illuminate is looking for an established AD/SAD to join our growing team of highly skilled, adaptive and diverse integrated communications specialists in a leadership role.

Hailing from various professional backgrounds spanning PR, digital, social and design, our team shares a common belief that to communicate effectively, you need to understand and appreciate every channel, and we build our client solutions around that. Solving problems is what drives us, which is why we seek out maverick clients and industry leaders with an appetite for change, from financial services and telecommunications to energy, agriculture and not-for-profits.

The common thread in every challenge we embrace is the opportunity to make a genuine difference to our clients' businesses, and to step change the way they think about integrated and impactful communications strategy and delivery.

About you will be ready to lead client accounts on significant brands, working cross sector and harnessing the power of our integrated offering and combined skillset.  With a strong grounding in and deep understanding of the PR world, you will be an effective and enthusiastic communicator who thrives on diversity and brings a passion for developing integrated communications strategies that span cut-through consumer PR, thoughtful strategic communications and smart social and digital components.

Reporting to the General Manager, you will have a minimum 8 years’ experience, and bring a demonstrated track record in leading successful public relations accounts, ideally spanning both consumer and corporate brands.

Thrive on strategic and creative communications challenges. Relish the opportunity to play a leading role in business development. Confidently embrace the financial management of client accounts. Bring empathy and leadership to your role as a manager.

About illuminate is an integrated communications agency providing dynamic services spanning media relations, content marketing, digital and social, issues and crisis management, thought leadership and more to major clients across financial services, technology, utilities and not for profit sectors.

We’re a workplace focused on team-work, opportunity, learning and building long-term positive relationships with both clients and colleagues. We’re proud of the impactful work we do for clients, and we share a work hard/play hard mentality.

Benefits include ongoing training and development opportunities, flexible work options, an annual ‘WorthDay’ financial bonus, summer Fridays (3pm finish) and TGIF festivities the rest of the year, and an annual ‘away day’ celebration.

Illuminate is part of The Haus, a collective of five specialist marketing and communications agencies under one roof, which share central specialist expert resources. We’re fiercely independent and proud to give our clients ideas that transcend traditional boundaries.
