As a Managing Director within Teneo you’ll lead, and work as part of, large and often integrated teams to deliver strategies that have impact for our clients, provide insight and intelligence through relevant networking as well as manage our people from a talent management perspective. You’d be joining an ambitious, global agency which affords candidates unmatched opportunities to develop and work with inspiring, motivated people. If you possess the skills and drive and understand the relationship between trust, reputation and value, this role will certainly be of interest.

  • Playing a role in the management of the wider team at Teneo
  • Talent management of junior colleagues
