R2C Group is looking for a Creative Director

Job Description

You love to lead and inspire people. And you love advertising. As a passionate student of effective creative, you have a keen sense of what is good, what is great and what is ingenious. Besides a mastery of ideas, words and images--of sight, sound and motion--you also know how to harness the power of strategy. If you can put all of that together to create great work that works, we want you. This is a senior-level creative position based in Portland, Oregon. Perhaps, at this point in your career, you're already a great CD. Or maybe you're ready to step up to that role after years of success as an ACD (Art or Copy). Have you outgrown the Digital-only space? Maybe you have a great DRTV reel and want to join an agency that values your ability to persuade and sell? If you're tired of spending your work life developing spec work that never sees the light of day, you'll love working at R2C Group. Here, your great ideas WILL get made. We've got lots of real work to do!
