How long have you been an AD total and a Senior AD? Maybe it’s the presumption of time? How are you approaching becoming an ACD? If there’s not a position open, they can’t and won’t promote you. Maybe that’s your angle. That at your current gig there just isn’t the role available so you’re pigeon holed

They don’t want there to be any ACDs. Just seniors and then ECDs. Even though the creative department is desperate for some leadership in between senior and ECD to help with the bottle neck issues of getting approvals and guidance. So I’ve been trying my best to help them and navigate through these bottle necks but I can only do so much without approval power so it’s been a bit difficult.

I’m getting a lot of push back because I haven’t official had the title of ACD yet. There’s a position I’m interested in where they suggested I can grow into the ACD role but that sounds like a trap. Maybe I’m not coming across as leadership material?
