Marketing Strategist

Is it a role for you?

Do you have the ambition and ability to be the senior point of contact for our largest accounts? If you do then, in a nutshell, you are one of our future Marketing Strategists.

We’re looking for someone to be the senior contact and planner on an important set of accounts. You’ll work closely with a Customer Success Manager, who’ll work with your accounts on a day-to-day basis, and our Head of Digital, who will be there to support you whenever you need input on account direction.

But, really, these are y​our​ accounts to run. You’ll have experience in marketing, running campaigns and whole strategies, with a laser-like focus on end results and growth. You’ll be a skilled negotiator, able to win clients round to strategies that you know are going to work, communicating why that work is important to our internal team and stepping in to handle client queries when needed. You’ll also be fantastic at pulling in the exact help you need, when you need it: you’ll be a highly skilled member of the team but you’ll also be aware that you’re even stronger when you get expert input at every stage.

Always looking to improve, you’ll be joining a like minded team who are focused on building an agency that wins clients through reputation.
