Head of Creative & Content
The Speed Read:
Our client is a rapidly growing independent on-line music licensing company with big (international) ambitions, and they are looking for an exceptionally talented Head of Creative to join them.
As an integral part of the Marketing management team, the Head of Creative will provide creative leadership over both the brand and the music product (design across music, brand, campaign, print and digital) to not only maintain the highest standards of design, but to raise the bar.
As part of a small graphics team (which you will mentor and develop) within a larger team of musicians, digital team and marketeers, you will work hand in hand with senior stakeholders for a unified approach, so experience of collaboration with International Marketing teams and a background in music or media is highly preferable. You will be working across a variety of industries, from media to corporate clients (and beyond).
This is an amazing opportunity to join this already highly successful business and help take them to the next level.
The design 'champion' - a true and natural leader for design across the business (music, brand and digital applications) - innately brand savvy, you understand and can articulate the potential of exceptional branding, and have a folio to prove it.
It goes without saying (but we'll say it anyway) - you will have exceptional graphic design skills, but beyond that you will inspire with your forward thinking (and commercial) ideas, so being plugged in to popular culture and the creative world around us is essential.
Authoritative and inspiring - experienced in managing and developing team members, and enjoy doing so, as well as a charmer when it comes to clients.
You will be fascinated by the digital world - you don't need to come from a digital background, but must have the experience, ability and hunger to work across cross-channel experiences. Experience in motion/video would be advantageous.
Your background/experience in the music industry or similar media related industry will put you at the top of the list. A passion for music is a must.
The ability to inspire and lead by example!
