Senior Strategist - Purpose and Impact

 

Key skills & knowledge – purpose, brand strategy, insight and impact, and client management

Experience - 5+ years agency experience

 

The Opportunity

This is a leading agency for purpose-driven brands. Everything that they do is about making brands a force for good - helping create positive change for people, communities and the world. Working with ambitious clients on the creation and execution of purpose, sustainable business strategies, innovation and creative campaigning and storytelling.

 

They are seeing the demand for the support that they can offer grow exponentially.

As they head into the next chapter of their business they are looking for a passionate, smart and imaginative senior strategist, with a specialism in purpose and impact, to join their growing strategy team.

 

They offer great benefits, a collaborative and creative environment, impactful and meaningful work, brilliant career opportunities, and the chance to work with some of the biggest and best brands in the world. This agency strives to build successful brands by making business a force for good.

You’ll be joining a vibrant, ideas-led agency working across brands like IKEA, Zalando, John Lewis Partnership and Virgin Media. They are a team that blends branding, innovation and sustainability consulting, with design, digital and creative execution.

 

The role

They are looking for someone with practical experience and leadership credentials, bringing a clear point of view based on experience and knowledge, and the passion and behaviours to inspire teams, colleagues and clients.

This role will see you leading projects, running workshops, uncovering disruptive insights, engaging leaders, and applying strategic and creative thinking to solve complex business and brand challenges. While working predominantly on purpose and impact projects, they are a dynamic and nimble agency so you must feel comfortable stretching your skills across the full range of strategic and creative communications services that they offer.

 

As a senior strategist you will need to have played a role as the project lead on large client briefs, working closely alongside Directors, with responsibility for the insight and direction of the project, leading the thinking and having oversight of junior colleagues

 

About you

You will bring at least 5+ years agency experience with specific and multiple experiences of delivering purpose projects.

You will bring strategic and analytical thinking, alongside excellent communications skills.

You will be comfortable leading projects with targeted guidance and support from Directors.

Across the strategy team and within the agency as a whole, you will have the ambition to drive the agency forward and support the agency to grow and develop outside of client projects.

You will have experience building client relationships, enjoy owning your work projects and working with junior colleagues.
