STRATEGIST

Results-seeker

People complain you ask too many questions, but you’ve always been driven to understand the why’s of life. Data and research are part of your make up. Curiosity and resourcefulness course through your veins. Excited about the possibilities of big and small data, tech and creative ideas, you’re ready to take your early planning experience and apply it in a results-driven, thinking-centric environment.

You’ll have the opportunity to apply your critical analysis skills across a range of accounts in Beauty, Finance and Alcohol amongst others, delivering campaigns across multiple channels. With a focus on digital, the challenges span full customer journeys across both acquisition and retention and always evidence based.

Working closely with a Senior Strategist you’ll respond to briefs with thoughtful, insightful strategic thinking – always ensuring that campaigns will drive measurable outcomes for clients. You’ll ensure that strategies are translated through to smart briefs, and collaborate with a delivery manager to deliver on-time, on-budget work. You’ll also focus on the building strong client relationships, positioning the agency as a trusted and valued partner.

We’re a bunch of serious thinkers dedicated to creating unmatched business outcomes for our clients. We love challenging ourselves each day, finishing mentally tired but totally satisfied we contributed to something meaningful. Go home, disconnect, play and come back for another round. Proudly independent, we are an AFR Best Places to Work as well as one of the most effectiveness awarded agencies on the planet. We’re looking for another Bright Spark to help us deliver more brilliant Outcomes.

Think this could be you? 

Experience at least 2 years experience in an agency as either a suit or planner, your background should include exposure to brand & digital – CX or CRM is a bonus

Data mad you’ll need a strong understanding of data-driven marketing and can easily demonstrate your love for the metrics that matter

Scholarly you hunt and gather information from all manner of places and are able to distil your findings into succinct and clear digests which are a pleasure to read

Constantly curious you can demonstrate you’re a self-directed learner committed to staying ahead of the curve

Service oriented you understand the value of being valued, and strive to constantly exceed client expectations

Craft-centric you’re driven to deliver nothing but your best, your briefs are sweated on obsessively and you leave no stone unturned in your quest for effectiveness

Commercial acumen is a work in progress, but you have the basics down and you’re keen to build your knowledge to fine tune a career in delivering killer ROIs

Detail obsessed with a sharp eye for the little things, you think things through carefully and respect the need for 100% factual accuracy & brand integrity

Collaborative you’re self sufficient, but equally wonderful to work with

Buttoned down you can plan and execute a mean to-do list and know how to own your results
