VML is looking for a Group Creative Director in Chicago

Job Description

VML is all about putting everything you are into everything you do. We're a full-service advertising agency that thrives on moving brands forward by inspiring a human connection.

Let’s get something straight — we’re not hiring a group creative director. Still reading? Great. Because at VML, we’re not just about the titles. Sure, they’re nice to see on our business cards, but we’re really so much more. True, we have a range of expertise from building websites and online media to developing full-on campaigns, but that’s not who we are. It’s just what we do. Because VML is a place that values hard work, the human spirit and the idea that if it doesn’t exist, it can be created. We’ve been voted one of the 25 best places to work in America three times and have partnered with some of the most recognizable brands in the world. And with a couple of decades under our belt, our trophy case is getting pretty full too.

As part of the WPP Group, VML offers one of the best overall compensation packages in the business. VML is headquartered in Kansas City.
