Your role

Can you name three agencies where you can build an app for a client, develop a creative brand campaign, redesign a website and create a glossy company magazine? At iO, we do it all (and more).

At the Antwerp campus, you find yourself in a large playground full of experts from various disciplines: from developers to creative copywriters. Cooperation is key and that is exactly what you do for top brands such as Proximus, Lipton, Q8, Dove, Axe and Port of Antwerp. You accompany them as a partner in their digital transition through the years: you get to know their business inside out and help steer the ship in the right direction.

As an Account Director, you are the person our customers call when they have difficult questions, new projects or bright ideas. You dare to ask critical questions and, together with the strategist, convert your clients' wishes into executable projects.

What we expect from you? As an Account Director, you are both your client’s partner and an internal uniter and supervisor. As a partner, you develop a relationship of trust with your clients and help them develop their business proactively. You monitor their objectives, know how to spot opportunities and take advantage of them. As a uniter, you involve the right specialists at the right time and ensure a well-functioning and motivated project team. And as a supervisor, you keep an overview of the day-to-day operations and keep track of the finances.

The best thing about iO? You have a lot of expertise at your fingertips. No matter how extensive or niche a client's question is: you can always help. Because in addition to your colleagues on campus, you can call on more than 1,500 talented top people across Europe: our slack channel is better than Google. So you don't have to look for freelancers, or wait for an answer from an external partner.

Knowledge lies at the centre of everything you do at iO. Our focus is on autonomy and you get plenty of opportunities for personal growth. Do you want to follow training courses to become even better than you already are? That’s great! But there is also room for relaxation. Want to blow off some steam in our game room between meetings? Of course you can. Spontaneous afterwork in the kitchen after a long day? Cheers!

Fancy being a part of the team? Then quickly claim a front-row seat to help shape the agency of the future.

Your qualities and skills as Account Director

  • You have 6+ years of experience in an agency (or worked closely with one) and know how the most diverse projects are realised.

  • You are the one building the relationship with your customers: you make sure they trust iO and you inform management about upcoming and current projects.

  • You know what is going on with your clients: you are aware of evolutions in their sector, inform them with the support of the strategist, and respond proactively to opportunities.

  • You and the strategist analyse your client’s questions and translate them into clear briefings for the project team.

  • You involve the right profiles in the right project and stimulate cooperation with the different departments within iO.

  • You are ultimately responsible for the budgets, annual plans and projects.

  • You understand the importance of a well-oiled team and you actively coach your account executives and managers to do their best work and grow.

You communicate convincingly with your team and senior customer profiles. You do this fluently in Dutch, English and French.

This is what you get from us

You’re giving us your time, dedication and your talent. And we’re very grateful for it. But what do you get in return? Here’s what to expect.

  • Challenging projects

    Dive into projects that really challenge you. Are you missing specific knowledge or skills? There’s always a colleague around who’s happy to help you out.

  • A lot of satisfaction

    With more than 1500 colleagues, you’ll be surrounded by the expertise you need to ace every project and get a lot of satisfaction from your job. At the same time, your campus feels small, cozy and homely.

  • Digitally diverse

    Everyone on your team brings new perspectives, interesting insights and valuable skills to the table. This way you’re part of something much bigger than just your own skill set.

  • Tools and training

    At iO you continue to grow and learn. Training sessions on campus will help you develop skills you’d never even thought of. And with a personal training budget, you can fully develop your true potential.

  • Lunch and snacks

    A tasty lunch, prepared with care? Admit it: you’d come to the office for less. Add to that weekly fruit baskets and fresh ice cream when the weather calls for it and it’ll be hard to keep you away, won’t it?

  • An ambitious party committee

    Signed your contract? Then you’ve also signed up for Halloween dress-up parties, barbeques during 30-degree weather and our legendary Christmas party (totally optional of course!)

  • A healthy work environment

    Your physical and mental well-being matters to you – and to us just as much. Count on interesting workshops, (online) sports events on campus and a shoulder to cry on when you need it.

  • Extra facilities

    A little help goes a long way. On many of our campuses, you’ll enjoy extra facilities, so you can focus on more important matters.
