This person will be a critical part of creative ideation, brief building, and ongoing strategy process, supporting production and client service to ensure that execution stays on-track and on-strategy. The ideal candidate must demonstrate a strong understanding and insight into experiential marketing, and be passionate about culture and the lifestyles embedded in it, in order to inspire new ideas and engender industry innovation leadership.

Collaborating across departments, this Strategist understands that a great idea is nothing if the client doesn’t understand and get behind it; you craft presentations that are as good as the ideas themselves. What’s more, you can effectively bring these presentations to life in a room full of clients. In addition to elevating the creative output for existing clients, you love the thrill of the pitch and are driven to lead teams of designers, writers, producers and account folks toward victory. You can think in large scale, overarching ideas, but can also focus on the nuances that turn a good solution into a great one.

Ideally, you are so immersed in culture that it is part of your daily life–not just your job. And it wouldn’t hurt to be a super duper writer with a creative soul and 4+ years of Account/Brand Planning experience.
