Creative & Strategy Director
We’re looking for someone to join the Senior Management Team, who is both creative in their thinking and commercial in their approach, someone who understands that just because it looks pretty, it doesn’t mean it is going to work, hit the brand’s brief or make money for the client and your agency.
Your background in the integrated experiential sector will ensure that as the figurehead of this agency, not only are you credible in front of colleagues and clients, but you will also be able to tell some great stories about the campaigns and ideation you have created previously.
Those stories will show your experience in clearly understanding what brands are looking to achieve and how you led the team to present this clever concept into the big campaign idea.
The key part of this role will be working on client briefs and ideation of integrated multi-channel solutions for both above and below the line campaigns. You will act as the agency’s ambassador and brand champion.
Understanding the challenges consumer brands face is your forte and being able to consider their challenges from both the strategic long-term and customer-centric short-term is something you excel at.
With clients needing to ensure their brand campaigns meet the growth deliverables of their brand whilst also being realistic and achievable in the real world, your background in these types of digital/TV/internet/social/mobile marketing projects will be invaluable.
As an experienced leader, your natural leadership skills, flexible approach, open-minded nature and personality will enable the business to look to you for answers and direction.
The agency has 6 international locations, £20m turnover, 70 future colleagues and a space on the executive board for the right candidate. You'll be someone who thrives on being front and centre on both UK and Global strategic communications and campaigns.
If you think you are this someone and the opportunity on offer sends a tingle down your spine, please get in touch for a chat and a confidential discussion to see whether this position matches your personal and career aspirations.
