5408: Creative Director X-Factors.

Saatchi & Saatchi X seems to be constantly seeking creative help. Check out this actual job listing:

At Saatchi & Saatchi X, our Creative Directors ensure delivery of world-class ideas and award-winning work that create sustainable growth for our clients. Our Creative Directors are connected players with their multi-functional teams, their peers, the creative youth and our clients. They are talented storytellers who are capable across multiple disciplines, such as digital, copywriting, design, interactive, CRM, promotional campaigns and environment/experiential.

Our Creative Directors are leaders in our agency, engaged in broad business discussions that shape the future of Saatchi & Saatchi X. They are inspirational leaders and mentors.

The ideal candidate will be an outstanding strategic and conceptual thinker, imaginative storyteller and persuasive communicator. You should also have a degree in a related field, with preferably 8 to 10 years of agency experience and a proven ability to direct and create award-winning work.

We are looking for team players who are passionate, curious, positive, and courageous.

“Connected players with…the creative youth” probably means you’ll be overseeing low-paid, inexperienced rookies. “Imaginative storyteller” definitely means major-league bullshitter. As for the world-class ideas and award-winning work, well, check out the examples depicted above from the agency website. Guess Prilosec side effects include delusions of grandeur.
