Effie-driven Senior Strategist

Create your destiny. You’re hungry to own the results, find a lead in the wilderness and nurture it into a customer for life. Using your creative intuition and your uncanny knack to unearth killer facts, you want to lead a team to proving effectiveness in all you do. Inspired by the possibilities of brands using technology & data, your mission is to influence behaviour. Comfortable in any medium, your accomplished strategic approach has won you respect from clients and peers alike. You’ve honed your skills in small and large agencies over the years but are ready to work with likeminded, ambitious folk to see your critical thinking up in lights (& published by WARC, Effies, AMES). 

The challenges are wildly diverse with brave and exciting clients. You’ll lead day-to-day briefs as well as major projects to develop solutions to meet your clients’ business goals. You’ll work directly with your clients, nurturing and cultivating these relationships to build deep trust through your ability to build immutable business cases. As part of a dynamic duo you’ll have the support of a talented junior strategist, and work closely with our media, research & analytics and creative teams.

Runs on the board you’ll have a few great case studies and maybe a few Effies of your own after at least 7 to 10 years of strategic planning experience in an agency environment

Data obsessed you have experience in data-driven marketing and can sort helpful metrics from the chaff

Customer journeys you’ve dabbled with CRM, hell you might even be an expert, but you know there’s so much more to life than ‘creating awareness’

Resourceful & relentless you don’t think in straight lines and you love hacking the system to find answers in unexpected places

Constantly curious your thirst for keeping ahead of the curve and bursting your brain keeps your mind frothing

Expressive in both writing & in the boardroom, you can communicate simply and elegantly taking your listeners & readers alike on a fantastic journey

Facilitator of great ideas, you have proven experience in eliciting ideas, knowledge and collaborating to translate them into action

Commercially savvy you’re all about ROI for client and agency alike

Collaborative you’re self-sufficient, but also a pleasure to work with and can get the most from those around you

Disciplined you meet deadlines and budgets without exception and know how to dig deep when it comes to leading a pitch winning team
