Who you are
You’re a confident Strategist with at least 2 years industry experience, you're already in your first strategy role and have probably hit a glass ceiling.
You will have some experience leading on accounts and have worked in an agency, perhaps you have some client-side experience too. You will have some experience in research, able to take data and uncover key insights, you'll be adept at developing robust strategies and able to craft a well written creative brief. You’re already a confident presenter and can manage relationships at a senior level, both internally and externally. You pride yourself on getting the best out of people, working closely with agency and third-party teams to deliver high-quality work on time and to brief.
Perhaps you're a Brand Planner, CRM Strategist or working in the brand activation space - either way you'll be looking to broaden your strategy experience. Some knowledge of social media marketing is ideal but not essential. What you must have is the ability to think upstream around a brand's business problem and be able to solve it in a creative, yet effective way.
With an excellent range of benefits and clearly defined career progression, this is an excellent opportunity for a talented Strategist to join a growing social media agency.
