PLACED: Group Strategy Director, $200-250K, NYC

Are you a creative problem-solver who can think big, is a student of culture and are passionate about ideas? Come join the agency that creates innovative cultural movements for exceptional brands.

Seeking a seasoned, talented and ambitious group strategy lead to work across multiple accounts, new business development and mentor a team of junior and senior strategists. Partnering with the CEO and Account leads, you’ll provide leadership and vision, articulating brand needs and developing appropriate strategy processes/deliverables for myriad project proposals.  You’ll contribute to the agency’s ongoing refinement of a unique strategic offering, marketing approach, and communications; playing a key role in pitch development and presentations. In addition, you will also have day-to-day responsibilities on marquee clients and should be equally comfortable leading C-Suite relationships as well as rolling up your sleeves and getting scrappy. You can find the human insight to solve a business problem and further develop that idea into actionable and superior creative executions.

Please… be collaborative and welcoming; people need to feel they can ask for your help and actively involve you in discussions with clients and amongst the team. You are quick thinking and smart, able to debate complex issues with clients at length and under pressure. To that end, you likely have a natural authority and can clearly and brilliantly express complex ideas simply. However, you need to act in an ‘open’ way, responding openly to client questions, seeking information from other parties and sharing the knowledge you have. Your ‘can do’ spirit is infectious and attractive to both colleagues and clients. Experience working with financial brands is a plus; category diversity also a plus. 12-15 years of agency strategic planning experience a must.
