Reporting to the Chief Growth Officer, the Account Director uses their natural leadership to bring the client’s business to life for WS’ teams. Their ability to see the big picture for the client and the agency is also critical to bring award winning campaigns to life. The Account Director understands and is sensitive to the roles of each person in creative and communications, from insights to strategy, and from creative to media. They bring the team together and are accountable for bridging the gap between the client’s challenges and WS’s expertise. The Account Director is a visionary, guiding the client into the future. They set and guide the plan, but don’t execute it – they don’t get stuck in the weeds.
The Account Director ensures that client needs are met by working with Account Managers and/or Account Executives, and by maintaining a high level of direct contact with clients. The Account Director shares with the Chief Growth Officer in the final responsibility for growth and profitability of the client.

WS has been active in the Canadian market for more than 20 years. Our team ranges from enthusiastic grads to seasoned veterans with over 30 years of industry experience.
Our diverse team of 20 (and growing) seems to really like it here, proven by our incredibly low turnover rate. Our team works from all different parts of the country and collaborate to bring ideas to life through technology.
We offer half day Fridays, that’s an extra half day to your weekend…we also offer flex days, give birthdays off, provide paid volunteer time, have a professional development budget, great social events, and this amazing thing called a “bonus program.” Sometimes, we all get together online for an event and the company pays for our food delivery to support local businesses.
It’s a pretty sweet gig, and we hope you can be part of it someday. Thanks for considering WS..
