HOLD: Global Manager, Paid Media; Beauty, $90-100K; NYC

Are you ready to join a company that is all about diversity and individuality?

This category-leading Beauty brand has collaborations with adored names from popular culture, art and fashion. Sold today in over 120 countries around the world, the brand remains committed to developing new categories, products and over 50 collections each year, all of which continue to serve the demand of consumers and professional makeup artists alike. The brand’s popularity has grown through a tradition of word-of-mouth endorsement from makeup artists, models, photographers and journalists around the world. As a brand-led innovation company — aimed at reaching the most discerning consumers around the world, regardless of age or ethnicity — they have a rich understanding of the competitive beauty landscape and a command of the social, digital and traditional communications platforms needed to connect with audiences.

Are you a talented and strategic Media mind with a passion for beauty? Come help develop and amplify a body-positive corporate, brand and product message. We’re seeking a Global Media Manager with 5+ years of experience to join an in-house team, establishing, facilitating and maintaining the brand media strategy across regions and the globe. You’ll be in daily communication with the Global Consumer Marketing team, Creative and all other contributing departments, overseeing the development, delivery of an integrated range of programs – print, digital, video, social media, experiential, promotions, retail, collateral, etc. This is less about execution of media buys (though there might be a bit if it’s a test and learn), but the main role is to create global media frameworks, strategies and KPIs for each of your efforts, partner with the global media agency and ensure delivery of the right assets. As shopping habits and social media converge, and as digital commerce becomes increasingly important, digital capabilities and insights are helping to create a seamless omnichannel experience to capture new opportunities.

YOU should be a motivated self-starter who can take a macro level view while managing the details of the nitty-gritty. Our team serves in a hybrid function that requires strong Media Strategy and Project Management capabilities while servicing the internal client and any of our external partners. We are only seeking candidates with previous Media Strategy experience; global/regional experience ideal, or at minimum a very global mindset with a P&G model background. Previous work in communications planning also a major plus. You’ll take ownership of projects and seamlessly follow through from inception to execution. Pro-active and flexible, you can adapt to the personalities of a large global team and provide support where needed.  Beauty, luxury, fashion, lifestyle or other image-based brand experience a plus.

The company is committed to developing the next generation of leaders with a strong focus on professional growth and continuous learning; their signature executive education programs stimulate professional growth and cultivate business relationships across the enterprise. The global nature of your work across multiple regions and brands, functions and channels provides fertile ground for mobility and career growth. An inclusive culture embraces diversity of thought and empowers individuals to think as entrepreneurs. Further, corporate citizenship and sustainability are central to their beliefs — from employee volunteerism and cause-related campaigns to the creation of high-performing and safe products, all while caring for people and the environment.

PLACED: Associate Strategy Director, Integrated/Digital, $125K; NYC

This funky, award-winning digital agency brings together product design, brand communications and social content to help businesses thrive. These guys are also a little weird, extremely collaborative, and sometimes communicate entirely in gifs with the account, design and technology teams.  We’re now looking for sensational talent in the Brand Strategy space to round out this unique team, working on global tech and mobile brands.

There are three reasons why the strategically hungry come to this agency: to break free from thinking-by-department, to get closer to making, and to work with clients striving to recalibrate their business around digital. You will be involved in everything from unearthing and articulating the leading insight, partnering with the VP of Analytics to define a data vision, through to a shared accountability for the creative product.

YOU:

-Grew up digital: This isn’t about spending every waking hour on Twitter. It’s about showing that you’ve played with a lot of the digital world, that you’ve experimented and learned – sometimes for work, sometimes for the sake of it.

-Can grow business for the right reasons: You thrive in a pitch, but you can also patiently help clients achieve their goals and create opportunity for your team.

-Stay hands-on: It’s an open-space office and most teams sit together. Your role may stretch across teams, but we need you in the work, not just around it.

-Have a range of experiences: Across different categories executing traditional campaign work, brand building, social media and involvement in web/ product builds.  For this role, a technology or telecom background is a major plus.

-Can work with fellow grown-ups: This is an eclectic mix of designers, technologists, strategists and producers. You must be an adept facilitator of ideas and insights sessions and be able to bring the best out of collaborators.

-Are well versed in research techniques: An ability to get to the nub of the problem through thorough desk-bound, primary research or the latest tools and cultural trends.

-Can lead and manage a team: You’ll be guiding Sr Strategists and Jr Strategists to solve business problems requiring both high-level thinking/theory and tactical planning methods.

PLACED: Senior Account Planner, $110K, 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 an inquisitive and self-aware Senior Account Planner with the experience and stature to lead accounts/projects independently, yet knows when to ask for help. With initiative and confidence, you can demonstrate a proficiency with myriad research methodologies and are adept at procuring, analyzing and distilling primary & secondary research, through to developing brand strategy recommendations grounded in human insights, guiding project trajectories and realizing the full potential of each client engagement. Collaborative in spirit, you’ll work closely with agency’s Design, Account and Leadership teams to deliver creative excellence, engaging clients and consumers through compelling brand strategy insights. Awash in pop culture and emerging trends, you have an ever-expanding knowledge-base and remain current on key subject matter and industry areas. Agency clients are diverse and require a quick mind and eagerness to understand their categories and businesses. A proven track record of excellence in writing and presenting will put you ahead of the pack.

And 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; 5-7 years of agency strategic planning experience required.
