This consultancy is in its third year of business and is thriving and growing fast. Could you be its next big investment hire? You’ll be an established senior digital operator — the equivalent of a senior consultant or associate director in your current role (or even a digital lead in a smaller consultancy set-up). Your strengths will include fluency in all things digital and social, not just technical side but the commercial and strategic stuff too, and you’ll be able to cover the ground for both corporate and consumer-orientated projects. This consultancy punches well above its weight when it comes to its client roster.

Do you have strong strategic instincts and a sound commercial awareness to lead from the front, inspire a growing team and take the weight off the two founders so that they are free to shape the business and its future? Are you a true digital heavyweight who can make the complexities and endless digital possibilities both simple and effective for your clients? You’ll be tenacious and brimming with ideas, but also a good listener and a natural problem solver.
