Further information

You’d be joining a well-run, medium-sized and independent consultancy with a client list that is likely to be the envy of much bigger agencies, comprising well-known consumer brands across FMCG, food and drink, lifestyle, beauty and wellbeing, leisure and fashion. Over the last decade, it has spread its wings from the high-end consumer space to large-scale strategic, integrated global campaigning.

Your responsibilities in this role will include:-

  • Team management / mentoring
  • Delivering top-level, insightful and commercially driven strategic client counsel
  • Helping to grow the consumer brand client portfolio with new business lead generation
  • Digital communications

You’ll be a pivotal team-member – leading a handful of lifestyle team members united by their love of a fun working environment, big brand exposure and top-quality results.  You will be very well placed in this role – encouraged to spread your wings and be innovative, creative and brave in your ideas and input and well supported by a great team beneath you and a first-rate MD and agency head from whom you can learn.

The successful candidate will demonstrate:-

  • Gravitas, robustness and brainpower
  • A creative and strategic flair
  • Strategic management skills and evidence of senior client counsel
  • Digital understanding and experience
  • New business skills – ‘hunting’ must be a passion of this individual
  • A collaborative approach, an entrepreneurial spirit and strong interpersonal skills
  • An insightful approach to mentoring and team management

Large agency experience would make you particularly interesting, but more important would be entrepreneurial instinct, ambition, high energy, a real love of consulting, strong people skills, a desire to make a difference and a sense of fun.  It goes without saying that you’ll come armed with heaps of first-rate client experience and demonstrate longevity and commitment in your career to date.
