Art Director - Qatar (Middle East) - £30-33k (tax free)
Fancy leaving Blighty for somewhere a little bit more exotic ? Then this could be the perfect opportunity for you. The Middle East’s most successful and most awarded marketing agency is looking for an Art Director to join their creative team.
Working alongside copywriters and designers, you will lead the creative ideas across all of the agency’s regional Qatari clients. You will report into the Creative Director (based out of Abu Dhabi but with weekly visits to Qatar) and manage the work of a young but highly talented designer.
With the Qatari office being merely 3 years old, you will be one of the more senior members of staff here and it is the intention of the agency bosses for this role to become the Creative Director further down the line (no-one will be hired above you). As a result, you must be a competent and conceptual art director, able to come up with strong ideas that media neutral. You will work across a real variety of media and campaigns, from digital and mobile applications to experiential events and above-the-line ad campaigns.
You will join a large British and European ex-pat community in Qatar, a country that is becoming very anglicised. You will enjoy a great standard of living, with no taxes to pay, making the salary on offer the equivalent to £40-45k in the UK. On top of this, you will also receive an annual bonus, which grows with the length of service you have put in. You will be helped with your visa and relocation costs, and will also have your flights paid for interview purposes.
This is a fantastic agency, the most awarded in the Middle East and ‘Digital Agency of the Year 2013’ and an unmissable opportunity for anyone really looking to further their career and add some excitement!
