It is looking for its next core ambassador at senior level. Might that be you? You’ll be well-versed in collaborating with colleagues from digital spheres through to corporate affairs, and will be no stranger to integrated marketing campaigns, employee engagement strategies and business critical internal communications programmes. You’ll be used to building stories to engage Millenial and Gen Z audiences who, as a demanding subset of society, are continuously evolving and necessitate constant innovation. Are you naturally creative? Do you understand brands and their core purpose? Do you tell stories built for their audiences? Are you highly strategic, industrious and able to lead and motivate teams – both your own and within clients? This is an established senior role – you’ll be an existing Associate Director or junior-end Board Director (or equivalent) – so you’ll be responsible for managing client accounts, providing senior counsel and setting strategy. You’ll also help raise the team’s profile and relish identifying and securing new business opportunities.
