Brand Marketing and Planning Manager - Kids
Expert shoemakers for almost 200 years. And we’re still going strong, evolving as a brand and as a business. Right now, we’re building the best in-house creative team we can. Across Brand, across Product Design, across Retail, across the board. A hotbed of creativity, innovation and craft. Where the ingenious will create the new icons. Where together, we will make lasting impressions: on our industry and on your career.
We are building a powerful in-house creative agency at the heart of the Clarks business. And at the heart of this new agency? Our Creative Planning team, our newly combined account management and planning functions. As the Creative Planning Manager for Kids, you’ll own the strategic planning and delivery of industry-leading, creative platforms, campaigns and assets to support our Kids business globally. In other words, you’ll be the brand guardian for all Kids creative. Globally. That’s a big responsibility – and a hugely exciting opportunity.
Working with creative colleagues, colleagues from the wider Clarks business and external agencies, you’ll bring our Kids brand strategy to life, telling great stories and showcasing our fantastic products. As you appreciate, great creative starts with a great brief. Yours are clear and inspiring, with single-minded, measurable deliverables. Briefs which lead to powerful and engaging creative – and across the full mix of consumer touchpoints too (including ATL, digital, social, retail and PR).
A bit about you
Whether you’re coming from client or agency side, we’re ideally looking for someone with solid experience of the children’s market. We want bright creative minds. People who will think differently, conceptually, unconventionally. But as well as being creatively driven, as well as knowing what makes a strong creative brief, you also need to be commercially switched on. You’re up-to-the-minute with marketing trends, you know what it takes to create relevant, impactful and innovative campaigns that deliver return on investment and drive brand aspiration.
You’ll know how to manage creative people and successful creative processes. You will have managed conception, development and delivery of big-budget brand defining ideas and assets for use across multiple touchpoints. From lifestyle and still life photography to video content and mobile-first digital solutions.
Life with us
Every 60 seconds, 105 pairs of Clarks shoes are sold globally. That makes us a £1.6 billion business and a truly worldwide brand. We now have some 15,000 employees across 75 different countries – everywhere from Europe to the Americas. Despite being the world’s biggest everyday footwear brand (by sale volume), we’re still owned by the Clarks family and based in Street, Somerset – where the Clarks business began. Street is the nerve centre of our business, driving growth and the whole Clarks success story.
