Job Details

NEW Strategy Director position with hugely creative and established communications agency. 

  • Location: London or Scotland. 
  • Salary:£65k-£90k (London) or £60k-£80k (Scotland)

Our client needs someone who’s an unconventional thinker, an empathetic leader and a determined problem-solver to drive world-class strategy across the clients.

If you feel you have the required skills please email your CV or apply below: [email protected] 

Key responsibilities:

  • Supporting the Creative Strategy Director and working alongside creatives, you’ll produce insightful and effective work to be remembered – and proud of.
  • You will be involved in all major clients, crafting clear thinking that’s grounded in truth and is never one-dimensional or obvious. Your strategies will be the basis for transformational, culture-shaping work.
  • You will build your team over time, hiring diverse strategists to support your work and also helping to hone the skills of our existing creative strategists.
  • As part of the senior leadership team, you will be a senior force within the agency and involved in their management meetings, helping to successfully guide the business.
  • You will keep the agency at the forefront of strategic excellence, continually improving and evolving what they do. 

You will be leading on: 

  • Research and insight 
  • Brand positioning 
  • Brand strategy 
  • Comms channel planning
  • Campaign strategy 

The role:

  • No two days are ever the same. You’ll lead the response to briefs from across the client portfolio. You’ll collaborate with the wider agency and the creative strategy team, but ultimately will be responsible for crafting strategy that leads the agency to the right creative idea.
  • In short, the job is coming up with fresh, joyful, through-provoking and ultimately effective work, grounded in culture and truth. Sometimes you’ll be working on big, strategic brand platforms, sometimes it will be finding distinctive ways to connect with particular audiences.
  • Whatever you’re working on, you’re comfortable with change and being flexible – in fact, you prefer it that way. Their pipeline of briefs is ever-changing and growing fast.

Key requirements:

  • You know how to build a pitch-winning strategy that makes everyone in the room sit up and listen. You are not just comfortable with collaboration, you thrive on it.
  • You will collaborate with their creatives, wider business, clients and audiences on a daily basis.
  • You have a deep curiosity and love of people. Their behaviours, their trends, their differences and their motivations.
  • You get the best from clients throughout the creative process.
  • You question, you share, but mostly you are keen listener. You read between-the-lines and can put yourself in their shoes.
  • You can manage multiple projects and tight turnarounds.
  • You have a genuine love of problem-solving and keep a close eye on interesting work within the industry.
  • You know how to take something that’s complex and make it simple. Whether that’s a problem or a sentence.
  • You are passionate – you defend work you believe in. But you are also positive.
  • You lift those people around you up. You bring a little magic to the room.
  • You are committed to diversity, inclusion and equality. These are not empty words at this agency. They really do live and breathe them and will only work with those who do too.
