About

This leading creative agency is looking for a Strategy Director of a few years standing. You need to have the gravitas to command a room, the creative understanding to get work to a brilliant place, and while the heart of this role is within brand planning, to have a good sense of the wider ecosystem and varieties of tools in a strategists skill set.

The agency is on the lookout for a 'creative firestarter' - someone who can take thinking to new and interesting places, inspire creative teams and be responsible for ensuring the upmost quality of creative work.

Role Responsibilities:

The client for this role represents a fantastic creative opportunity and deserves a strategist that can unlock it.

You need to be a clear thinker, able to digest the complex and make it powerfully simple. The client has multi-dimensional challenges to wrap your head around, if you love the rigour of strategy, there is plenty here to stimulate you.

At the same time, these are clients that have bought great work. The ECD and CCO with whom you would work very closely, have big plans for creative excellence and they value how much strategy brings to that.

You would be a very important part of the strategy community at the agency and with that comes the opportunity to work side by side with people whose talents are different to yours and who will challenge you to think and create differently.

Ideal candidate:

- Eight plus years in a specialised strategy role within a creative agency

- Proven strategic thinking at the highest level; from high profile and/or highly effective campaigns
