As an account director at FINN, you will be the strategic sounding board for the board and C-level at Belgium's largest companies and organizations.
Who we are
FINN is a strategic communication office in Brussels with a strong focus on innovation and quality. With our close-knit team of 15 consultants, we support clients across various sectors with their national and international communication assignments, from startups and scaleups to large corporates, but also governments, political parties and NGOs. With our clients, we work on matters that shape the world of tomorrow.
FINN is a successful, award-winning growth company. To support our growth we are looking for an account director.
You show the way. As an account director at FINN, you are a strategic sounding board for the board and C-level at Belgium's largest companies and organizations. Customers count on you to provide them with valuable insights and creative solutions that have an impact on their reputation and brand. You make sure everyone is on the same page, both colleagues and freelancers with whom you work for your clients.
You develop strategies. As an account director, you are aware of the business challenges of the key accounts at FINN and turn them into viable, impactful strategies and campaigns. You help clients make informed decisions about their communication approach - both in their proactive brand building and in issue management and crisis communication. You keep clients on their toes by alerting them to the challenges facing them today - as well as tomorrow.
You orchestrate. You ensure precise execution of the communication strategies and plans. As an account director, you are the point of contact for important clients at FINN. You liaise with management where necessary and closely monitor the work of internal and external team members. You ensure that campaigns are delivered at the highest quality, on time and within budget.
You have an academic master's degree (not necessarily in communications) or equivalent experience. You have built up considerable experience in a marketing, communications or public affairs role and have learned to keep a cool head in ever-changing situations.
You like to keep things moving. For you, a strategy is a mandate to do things. You like to grow brands and reputations through concrete actions. You can zoom in on details when needed and zoom back out to see the bigger picture - and the next step in the client's journey.
You are analytical. You see connections between facts and can turn them into a compelling story.
You are empathetic. You know your own strengths and weaknesses and can understand the point of view of others. You are committed to integrity.
FINN is a close-knit team of colleagues who share an ambition to acquire mastery in the communication profession.
Our mission is clear: FINN wants to master communication in all its dimensions, from strategy to implementation, via all possible channels. We seek to improve and innovate our profession.
We believe in patient growth. We offer opportunities to grow, but support that growth through coaching - and patience. We regularly set up internal workshops and meet and greets with interesting influencers, politicians or journalists. We offer three training days a year. We like to work with the latest tools to make our work run smoother.
Our lines of decision are short. As a team member you are close to management, and you shape your own path at FINN. Are you more interested in lifestyle influencers or are you more of a techie? Bitten by B2B or B2C? Crisis communication or internal communication? We listen to your interests and see how we can best match them through our work.
We are a young and dynamic team that values a good atmosphere at work. We always find a new reason for a drink and/or team lunch. Once a year we go out together for a FINN day.
We believe that an optimal, pleasant working environment for our employees is crucial. Therefore, we also offer the flexibility to work from home as well as from the office and to combine work and family life. Our office is located in the heart of Brussels, close to the Kaaienwijk, with lots of light and a view over the canal. We are easily accessible by public transport and by car.
You can expect an attractive salary with a generous package of extra-legal benefits, including meal vouchers, ecocheques, mobile phone allowance, mobility package,....
Excellence: we are meticulous and precise in the work we do for our customers. We like evidence-based methodologies, but we are not academics. We love getting things done.
One step ahead: we always think one step ahead. We are proactive and innovative in our approach to communication.
Integrity: we are aware at all times of the value and importance of the things that customers entrust to us.
Plugged in: we know what's going on in the world, and we maintain good relationships with the policy and opinion makers. We take the Zeitgeist into account in everything we do.
