Job Description

We’re looking for a superstar Strategist to join one of Bristol’s leading branding and packaging agencies as Senior Planner (we're also open to a midweight at ready for a step up). This is an incredible opportunity to join one of the UK's top brand strategy agencies, and to help shape the future of some really exciting brands at a global level. 

The experience we need.

  • You’ll have worked your way up through packaging/branding agencies and perhaps picked up some integrated experience along the way, to include several years in a Planner or Senior Strategist role
  • Experience applying design to business problems and developing client accounts
  • You’ll be a creative thinker able to consider work in a lateral way and brief creatives with clarity and vision  
  • Confidence and gravitas to voice and present your ideas in an engaging way whilst maintaining an open mind to the opinion of others (and adapting your approach when needed)
  • It goes without saying that you’ll have an immaculate attention to detail, and an eye for strong packaging design and branding, having worked within the FMCG industry 
  • If you're not yet a Senior Brand Strategist / Senior Planner but you tick most of the boxes above then you should definitely still get in touch. There's a bit of wiggle room for really smart people!

The role.

As Senior Strategist / Senior Planner your role will support the Strategy Director and include:
  • Working on both brand and creative strategy for high profile client accounts
  • Analysis of the performance of work, operating at consultancy level
  • Inspiring internal teams and providing perimeters for work based on client vision and objectives
  • Identifying and utilising the correct tools to provide crucial customer insights

The company.

This multi award-winning agency has a fantastic name in the business and an impressive client list to match. They put their all into producing the best possible creative work and are proud of their collaborative and gutsy approach, offering every team member a platform for their ideas.

What you’ll get in return.

  • A competitive salary + bonus
  • Personal development budget
  • Inspiration workshops and tickets to creative seminars
  • Flexible working options
  • Private healthcare
  • 23 days holiday (which increases with length of service), bank holidays and your birthday off, and a Christmas shut down period
