Head of Planning / Head of Strategy - Top Creative Agency

This leading creative agency is one of the best, their client list is impressive and constantly growing, they're a new business machine and constantly win some of the biggest pitches out there.

We are looking for a Head of Planning / Head of Strategy, someone who can come in and work closely with the Managing Director, CEO and Chief Strategy Officer. The Head of Planning / Head of Strategy will take control of the planning department and you'll lead and direct the planning team.

As the Head of Planning / Head of Strategy you'll have a team of Planning Directors, Senior Planners and Mid and Junior Level planners. A team of around 10 and it's growing. The Head of Planning / Head of Strategy will be a mentor, support and take care of the team from a pastoral care point of view. As well as this, the Head of Planning / Head of Strategy will be a sharp mind and a bright thinker, and you'll inspire your team.

We are looking for a Head of Planning / Head of Strategy who has experience running and managing a department and team, so ideally you'll be a Head of Planning / Head of Strategy who has done this before at another top 10 creative agency. The Head of Planning / Head of Strategy should be a very natural leader. 

The Head of Planning / Head of Strategy will take ownership across key agency clients, and you'll work very closely with the CMOs and Marketing Directors to find brand truths, lead across creative thinking and strategic planning. This is a top integrated agency, and they produce lots of big brand TV, advertising, digital and content work for their clients. They're instrumental in coming up with the big ideas for their clients, and we're looking for a Head of Planning / Head of Strategy who has worked in a similar space, delivering award winning effective work for top brands. 

The Head of Planning / Head of Strategy will work with the MD of the agency, and the CD and other senior management to lead the business and drive the agency's creative and strategic output. You will definitely know this agency, and their work, and the Head of Planning / Head of Strategy coming into the business will be in excellent company. The Head of Planning / Head of Strategy will lead and direct existing clients, and you'll put your brain and thinking to good news across the multiple new business opportunities that come into the agency. The agency's new business team runs like a well oiled machine, and opportunities come their way time and time again, so we need a Head of Planning / Head of Strategy who is nimble in their approach, can wear many hats and drive an agency's planning and strategy department forward and with pace. We are looking for a highly driven and ambitious Head of Planning / Head of Strategy.

It's a dream role for the right Head of Planning / Head of Strategy. You could be a top end Planning Director who is looking to step up, or an established Head of Planning / Head of Strategy. But you must come from a top agency background and be able to showcase outstanding award winning work. 

Roles like this don't come up that often, and it's a very exciting opportunity for the right Head of Planning / Head of Strategy. If this sounds like you, and you're looking for a new role then please get in touch with us asap.
