The agency 

Renowned specialists in cause-led marketing, this agency’s point of difference is its strength in fully integrated marketing and a winning crossover between fundraising planning and impactful creative.

It has carved a unique position within the sector by creating powerful campaigns for many of the world’s best-loved charities across DRTV, film, print, social, digital and direct mail.

The Strategy Director role

Cause-led marketing currently constitutes 70% of this agency’s turnover, with the other 30% devoted to commercial accounts.

The depth of its experience means that the agency is trusted by clients at the most senior levels – and the preservation and advancement of its position in the sector is central to the Strategy Director role.

There will also be a succession opportunity to join the management board with a view to becoming part of the agency’s overall leadership team and helping to set strategy for the business.

Reporting to the Director of Planning, the role begins with: 

  • Leading and growing the agency’s specialism in cause-led marketing

  • Inspiring and nurturing an awareness within the agency of politics, culture, society and consumer trends
  • Proactively developing and inspiring new business and making compelling pitch presentations


£85K - £100K depending on experience plus profit-related bonus and other good hard and soft benefits.
