Senior Planner / Senior Strategist - Great Salary / potential equity and bonus, creative independent

This creative independent agency is looking to bring in a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist who can help take the agency to the next level and really lead clients / new business pitches from a real strategic point of view. 

The agency was founded by a group of smart agency folk, all have excellent credentials and they've worked at top agencies throughout their careers. They're looking to expand and grow the agency, and 2016 will be another big year for them. Financially it's been one of the best years to date, and as an agency they want to invest in talent, and bring in some smart people who can help drive the agency forward. 

They will be making a number of new recruits this year, and we're helping them build a new senior management team. The first hire will be a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist. The Senior Planner / Senior Strategist will work in partnership with one of the founding partners of the agency. He leads the client services offering and he's looking for a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist he can partner directly with. Together with your team (above and below), you'll help lead the agency's strategic offering, lead existing clients and direct new business pitches and opportunities from a strategic point of view. 

The Senior Planner / Senior Strategist will work with a talented creative department too. The agency is around 30 people in total, and they have huge growth plans for this year. They work with a wide range of clients from the world of FS, to Charity brands, and many more. They want a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist who can help across the whole business. You'll be a commercially minded strategist, you'll be someone who wants to be involved in a business and help grow an agency, not someone who just waits for opportunities to come their way. They have a vision for the agency, and they want a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist to get involved with this, help them define their agency offering, help them define their new business strategy and work closely with the senior management team to lead the business from a strategic point of view. 

You'll be a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist who gets brand, business transformation, digital and you would have worked at an integrated level. You'll be a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist who can work with clients, lead them from a strategic point of view, solve their business problems and you'll have a natural ability to advise them from a creative, strategic and business point of view. 

The agency delivers work across all comms channels, so we need a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist who is comfortable leading brands across all channels. 

You must be super bright, highly ambitious, passionate about business (agency and client business), and you'll be Senior Planner / Senior Strategist who really wants to step up in a role and agency. You must have a voice and clear opinion and hungry, and a want to succeed. 

They have a great plan in place and the Senior Planner / Senior Strategist will be a part of this growth. 

They are looking for a Senior Planner who wants to step up, and if all goes to plan, and you're adding value to the business you'll become an equity share holder in the business - they are keen to lock in top talent and keep them in the business, this is the best way to do it and create a new management team. 

If this sounds like you, and you're a Senior Planner / Senior Strategist who is looking for a new role then we want to hear from you immediately.
