This role is for someone that loves culture, people and brands.  Joining the dots is the key.

This role would be right up your street if you;

  • Challenge assumptions, think critically and curiously to help make sense of the bigger picture 
  • Work with clients to formulate better briefs, to distil challenges and tasks to clearly define the problem they are trying to solve 
  • Work directly with clients to frame business, as well as brand, problems 
  • Have the ability to identify the data, trends and cultural insights that build briefs which lead to excellent, focused and effective creative work 
  • Understand how to give direction and partner with client management, creative and live teams to bring ideas and strategies to life 
  • Have the ability to collaborate and integrate with client’s wider agency teams

You will be involved in everything from insights and research to concept development, communications planning to cultural programming - helping to shape campaigns, collaborations and concepts that deliver measurable change for their clients.

The team are simply inspired, and excited, by problem-solving. As a member of the strategy team you will have the opportunity to work with a breadth of brands and on a variety of audiences, passion points and challenges. 

  • If brands that are similar to Adidas, X-Box, Smirnoff, Booking.com, Facebook, Twitter and Innocent drinks interest you, and currently sit on your CV, then this role could be for you
  • You could be placed currently in a creative team within a small/medium sized experiential agency looking for a new and very exciting challenge with a large team of like-minded people, rather than a team of three or four
  • You may also work in a creative team in a large networked agency, whose majority of their clients are restricting your true passions of culture, music and entertainment, that you would love to bring into your work place every day
  • Do you thrive on discovering new talent and cultural differences?

If the answer is yes to any of these; this is the exact agency you need to be working for. They are way too cool for me, are you cool enough for them?? Drop me a line to find out please!
