Senior Strategist - the role
The role of senior strategist is to provide brand, consumer and category insight, informing the creative brief and helping shape ideas to sell to the agency's clients. You'll be a thinker, a sponge and a filter of information. You'll be responsible for making the agency's strategic and creative offers sharp, relevant and usable.
This is a fabulous opportunity to join a leading agency in their prime; the career potential in this role is great with the opportunity to move up to planning director within time for the right candidate who offers creative vision.
The planning function covers four areas - creative ideas, brand strategy, brand architecture and innovation - from concept writing and territory design to ideation.
You will come from an agency but perhaps from any agency background - from marketing, innovation, consultancy, advertising or design. You'll have around 5-8 years' experience and be hungry to grow. You'll understand brand and how it works across different touchpoints. But what will single you out is your creative vision and flair and your limitless capacity to develop ground-breaking ideas, to find simple and eye-catching solutions to more complex issues.
