Other Opportunities

Senior Designer/Art Director

  • Do you have an excellent design sense and the skills to go with it—but you really live for the big idea?

    We're looking for a senior designer/art director:

    • We need someone who loves good content as much as good design and who might even come up with a great headline once in a while.
    • Familiarity with the digital space and video production will be a big plus, and we’ll be over the moon if you have experience in motion graphics, although it isn’t a requirement for the position.
    • You should have at least five years of work experience as a designer in an agency or similar environment.

    As a member of our team, you’ll enjoy a highly collaborative working environment that involves interacting with both the creative and the account departments to develop national-level strategically driven creative. Ideation is key, and your ability to give (and receive) feedback and guidance is critical.

    If this position sounds right for you, send us your resume and a cover letter that sums up your experience, explains why you’re a good fit, and gives us a glimpse of your personality.

Account Director

  • Shelton Group is seeking a senior-level account manager with 10+ years experience within a marketing communications firm and/or full-service advertising agency to lead and manage a group of accounts.

    The account director must be equally adept at leading strategic marketing communications efforts and overseeing execution to ensure high-quality, efficient work that exceeds client expectations and optimizes agency profitability.

    The position requires a solutions-driven individual capable of seeing the big picture without losing sight of details. He or she should be comfortable developing and moving forward with plans despite ambiguity, and the ability to lead and direct a team of account/project managers is a must. The account director must also instill confidence to clients, proficiently manage financial projections, and organically grow the business.

    Strong verbal and written communications skills will be necessary for every aspect of this position. A four-year business or marketing degree is required. Experience with B2B marketing, building products, energy efficiency and/or environmental sustainability is a plus.
