Do it. You can always hop again in a year if you want.

Would you have to move to a different city? Does the new agency have a good reputation? What about your potential bosses? Will you have their support and guidance in running this challenging account? Did you meet a potential partner? It sounds like it’ll be an amazing growth opportunity with the added bonus of more money.

Go for it. Give it a year, then ask yourself if you’ve made a mistake.

Do it!

Get the money!

What’s the point of building a book if you never leverage it for your own financial well-being? Also, assuming they’re hiring you bc of creative record, is this account and agency open to taking more creative risk that may pay off in terms of awards? Or are you essentially trading creatively fulfilling work for more $? I don’t think it should be a one-or-the-other choice, you should be able to earn good money doing good work not just status-quo.

If you’ve no major awards and neither have they, then it seems like you are a good match.
