Brand Planner/ Strategist

The Company
This agency really gets under the skin of brands - positioning them perfectly in the market with a clever mix of big data and clever creative.

Known for creating campaigns that really get people talking, this fully integrated agency deliver engaging and effective campaigns for clients across a huge range of industries. Including really well-known lifestyle, fitness brands - through to new restaurant chains, universities and startups.

The Position
This really is an opportunity to become the strategic heart of this fully integrated agency.

As a brand planner/strategist, your work will form the foundation of projects and campaigns from day 1. You'll lead initial insights and research and keep tabs on projects where necessary as they are implemented and executed.

The core of the role is to lead an initial deep-dive approach, getting under the skin of the problem and knowing the brand inside out. Your work will form the crux of the brief, that nugget of info, a key-finding that informs and sells the big idea behind a campaign.

Through research, client workshops, collaboration and self-initiated inquiry - as well as working with external market research partners - you will help inform their tone of voice and shape their personality. Whether they're a startup challenger brand or a household name, you will know how to find their place in the market.

You'll be fairly autonomous - but not alone - there'll be plenty of support from client services, senior writers and creatives, and the senior management. Some weeks you'll dip in and out of projects and pitches - and other weeks you'll be dedicating all your time to one client/problem.

What We’re Looking For
We want an inquisitive mind - who won't stop at the surface and naturally digs deeper! A talent for unearthing the framework of a brand and what really makes them tick, you will be a key strategic voice of the agency.

This is also a client facing role so we need a tactful client handler, adept at getting the most out of clients.

This is a great chance for someone in an established client services role (Senior Account Manager or Account Director roles) who wants to move into a wholly strategic space. We still need to see CVs that evidence some strategic planning of this nature.

This role could possibly suit someone looking for a part-time role too. Though this is by no means essential.

What’s On Offer?

£40,000 - £45,000
Great city location
Super people focussed culture - with brilliant progression opportunities
Regular socials, for those who want that sort of thing!
Part-time hours as an option
