The role will also own editorial/earned media ideas, both the upfront creative development and activation tactics.The need for creativity isn’t just confined to consumer clients; original ideas are just as valid in the corporate space, so a high degree of versatility and intellectual agility is really important. It’s a terrific opportunity for a true creative to really add value and see their ideas make an impact
