Minimum of 8 years’ experience
Responsible for delivering world class advice to our clients in the areas of commercial brand strategy and marketing. We’re looking for highly experienced, consumer obsessed strategists who are adept at facilitating and developing transformative brand strategies. People with extensive category experience who can commission research, analyse commercial data, surface knowledge from clients and our teams in order to develop compelling, results based brand strategies. You will need to be able to unearth actionable insights, formulate and present provocative and differentiating recommendations that help our clients grow as forces for good.
Your responsibilities would include evaluating prospective clients, co-creating proposals, conducting extensive research, analysing findings, making recommendations, designing and facilitating workshops, presenting to clients and briefing creatives.
What we’re looking for
People with superpowers who will enjoy working in close collaboration with our new business team, account team, words team and creative team. We are looking for people who will bring years of experience, flair, creativity and a startup mentality to the party.
We like to work in small teams where everyone is responsible and accountable for doing their bit. So, when it comes to managing people, your sleeves will need to be as rolled up as theirs.
If you call yourself a strategist that’s probably a good start. However, if you’ve actually delivered some successful brand transformations over your career then you’re almost home and dry. We’re looking for unicorns, people who really know what it’s like to sit in front of a suspicious, and occasionally cynical, client and who can convince them to think like a startup, ask their teams difficult questions and consider the environmental impacts their daily decisions have on the planet.
You will have plenty of stories to tell from the projects you’ve worked on in the past.
Experience in developing start-ups as well as reviving and reinvigorating mature businesses.
An open-minded, passionate individual with a thirst for knowledge who is comfortable speaking truth to power.
Be able to challenge without conflict and harness the collective genius in the process.
An understanding of consumer behavioural psychology and what insights creatives need to produce great work and the ability to deliver those insights – whether they come from consumer research, trend forecasting, commercial understanding or other sources
The ability to design and facilitate effective workshops that discover valuable information, pinpoint the right questions, and troubleshoot
