A little more about the planning and strategy team…

We are a tight-knit team of experienced strategists that form an essential part of the agency’s offering. We deliver all parts of the strategy cycle, from research to insight, brand strategy to creative development and digital & comms planning. 

Strategic is a core part of the agency’s function and the pride we take in our work is reflected in the quality of our creative output, client relationships and awards, most notably a recent IPA Effectiveness win for Covonia.

Despite COVID, we’ve recently won a series of large and exciting pieces of business and see strategy as the lynchpin for growing these accounts.

What will I be doing?

Reporting into a Senior Planner, you will be working across our business and be an integral part of the team. 

We need someone who believes in the power of strategy to make a difference, no matter the channel or market.

We value collaboration, rigor, kindness and a ‘whatever it takes’ mindset to ensure we are delivering great work for our clients. 

Responsibilities include:

  • Client lead on projects and understanding and interpreting client briefs
  • Articulating business, brand and comms objectives,
  • Writing and researching briefs
  • Research management, interpreting findings, advanced TGI usage, participating with other disciplines, 
  • Writing concept briefs
  • Facilitate creative thinking sessions and process/reviews
  • Supporting running workshops
  • Understanding the steps in the process required to succeed and source data to populate an evaluation framework,
  • Pitch support on new business or proposal development for existing clients and contributing to award entries

You will be a self-starting, proactive person who is persuasive and compelling, able present arguments that will convince clients and creatives alike.

Confident and creative in everything you do, you will have the ability to work across all channels including digital. 

Experience required
