Saatchi & Saatchi launched in 1970, with the philosophy that “Nothing is Impossible” – a statement that is carved into the steps of our London building. This spirit remains fundamental to our approach.

Over the years, we are proud to have created some of the world’s most famous, loved – and in more recent times, most shared – ideas: from the ‘Face’ ad for British Airways, to ‘Life flows better’ for Visa, and the ‘Life’s for sharing’ campaign for T-Mobile.

We are a full service, integrated communications network, with 114 offices in 67 countries, with our headquarters in London. Saatchi & Saatchi is part of the Publicis Groupe, the world’s third-largest communications group.

The Role

You will be the motor of the team, the one who keeps the show on the road; bulletproof at the basics. You are a natural organiser, galvaniser, an agitator - you keep everyone honest and everything on track. You can foster an environment where everyone can enjoyably collaborate on producing the very best work.

You have a creative appreciation, an interest in the industry and have a clear point of view. Your passion, commitment and endeavour for success is infectious; you are flexible, resilient and believe that 'Nothing is Impossible’

You will be the brand expert with detailed knowledge of your client’s business, their issues, competitive environment and you’ll help to drive integrated communication solutions. You will own the client relationship with the relevant brand manager, present without supervision while building and nurturing strong relationships with all other departments within the agency, including the project management, planning and creative departments.

  • Generate presentations, documents, charts, reports etc. for both internal and external use
  • Oversee and approve all contact reports before they go to clients
  • Work with the Account Executive to prepare regular competitive reviews to be shared with the rest of the team and client
  • Progress to be able to independently run your own projects from start to finish

WHAT IT TAKES

  • Previous agency experience & 360 creative campaign experience
