Our publishing client is looking for an experienced Creative Director to join their company here in Dubai and Saudi Arabia, as they grow through a period of digital transformation.
Creative directors play an essential role in the marketing, creative, communications and digital departments.
They are responsible for
- Leading their team
- Developing creative guidelines and directing creative work, including print collateral, websites, email campaigns, television and radio advertising, and many related tasks.
- Report directly to the MD
- Extensive experience and professional judgment to plan and executive projects.
It’s a dynamic job. One day you they may be writing copy for the launch of a new website. The next, they can be standing beside the director’s chair at a casting call. Thus, they’ll need to be an expert in all facets of the creative process — and the creative industry — in order to produce the best work.
Creative Directors also must be great leaders with the ability to maximize the talents of their teams. Doing so means being a coach, a teacher, an instructor, and a critic all at once. Creative directors work with copywriters, graphic designers, web designers, account managers, brand managers and other marketers on a daily basis.
