Account Director – B2B/Tech


Current Global is a global communications agency that puts humanity at the heart of everything we do, from our internal culture rooted in empathy to the way we help clients understand that people want to connect with companies and brands as real and human as they are. We say we’re the human-first agency.

We turn 5 this year and have lots to be proud of. We’ve consistently outperformed the PR market, are one of the fastest-growing mid-sized agency brands globally, a top 60 firm by revenue, and last year (2023) was our most award-winning year ever.

Part of IPG and a member of The Weber Shandwick Collective, we’ve got offices in Asia, Europe, MENAT, North and South America. We boast a client roster including some of the world’s most recognised company names in technology, fashion, digital, healthcare, and medtech. How are we different? The size, speed and agility of a boutique client experience backed by the resources of one of the industry’s leading communications networks.

Our vision has never been about being the biggest, or even the fastest growing (that’s a happy by-product). It’s about being the kind of agency that the best talent wants to work for, which truly enables everyone to be their best. Human-first.

We’ve made the melting pot of London work for us. Tapping into the incredible diversity this fair city has to offer, we’ve built a team designed to be truly international in make-up, mindset, and consultative muscle. Our team hails from the US, Europe, Middle East & Asia, and includes former engineers, medical researchers, management consultants, musicians and even an AI start-up entrepreneur. We intentionally hire people from all backgrounds (not just PR), who bring new skills, experience, and perspectives into the mix.

And whilst many agencies talk about diversity an inclusion, most fail to make their work inclusive of people of all abilities. We’re on a mission to change that and pull the PR industry up by its bootstraps with our award-winning Accessible by Design initiative (

To support our continued growth, our B2B / Tech team is looking for an Account Director who loves the challenge of taking complex and nuanced topics and making them relevant and accessible to mainstream audiences and business decision-makers – across borders.

What is the role?

Our London B2B / Tech team is small but mighty (as well as being super fun!) – you’ll collaborate daily with our CEO and Global Technology Lead who both sit in the London office.

You will be responsible for helping develop pan-regional campaigns designed to help multiple markets land stories in the media as well as social and digital channels. The main topics we address include: the future of the workplace, tech’s role in sustainability, the importance of cybersecurity, and data’s role in helping companies forge new business models.

You will also play an important role in our new business program. Unlike some agencies, we are very selective in the prospective clients we engage with. If it’s standard press office and press releases, it’s not for us.  And if we feel like any opportunity will cause a strain on people, we won’t pursue it. If a deadline for RFP is unrealistic, we say so to the prospect.

And unlike many agencies we don’t believe in putting people in narrow boxes when it comes to the types of clients they want to work with.  With growing consumer and healthcare groups, we encourage people to work cross-practice. After all, it’s the same core skills that are called for. And we’re one team.

You will be supported by smart, hard-working, and caring people. We are committed to delivering excellence. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. If that sounds like you, it will probably be a fit!

Responsibilities include:
