We’d love to talk to you to see if this sounds like you…
Strategists are tasked with the day to day strategic ownership of an account, helping senior strategists or strategy directors with achieving the vision set for the account - with their support.
A strategist will be asked to write and deliver great briefs, work closely with creative and media teams in making it a reality and selling the strategy and work to day-to-day clients. While they work under an account’s strategic leadership, they are the engine that makes great work, which captures consumer attention, changes a client’s business and creates work that leverages culture. While we want you to shape the work, we also want to help shape your career towards leading accounts and you will learn how to move to senior strategist and strategy director by doing.
Your day to day could involve any part of the strategic process: helping to look for insights and signals to shape briefs, working with creative teams to create work to test and learn from in the world, working with media to shape the insights into what we’ve created, creating and delivering reports to show what we should do next and working with clients to help make plans a reality.
Work with the PCS (junior strategist) to mine insights and cultural trends and turn them into actionable insights and creative briefs.
Briefing and collaborating with creatives to make relevant and impactful work.
Produce a range of strategic documents and recommendations.
Develop platform and publishing strategies and share knowledge about opportunities in digital and social channels.
Working with, and presenting to clients.
Monitor results and effectiveness and help to continuously show where we can strategically improve through performance analysis and report creation.
What are we looking for?
A capable strategist with a hunger to make great work and a curious mind. You need to have a good understanding of brand marketing strategy, be excited about brands, creativity and the potential social channels have to make an impact on business and how content in social can help inform wider engagement and action.
You should be comfortable and experienced in collaborating with senior and junior strategy colleagues as well as creative, media and client teams and confident in identifying insights, writing strategies and briefs as well as reporting and tracking effectiveness.
Desirable skills and experience
2-3 years’ experience working in a strategic marketing role (this could be at a creative agency, a media agency or client side marketing teams).
The ability to work on your own to develop strategies, briefs and reports.
Collaborating with creative, client partnerships and other internal and external partners.
We love people with a passion for social media, technology and popular culture, especially those with experience of running their own social media channels and networks.
