This is a small but well-established boutique design agency that needs a mid-level strategist to bolster its offering and back up the MD with their strategic offer.
The speed read:
The agency works across a folio of clients that include property, fashion/lux and some corporate clients.
Day to day, you will be supporting the MD on the strategy and research phase across all of their clients. This may include desk or field research, interviews, audits, name generation, workshops etc. You will also have the appetite and curiosity to pick up a loosely shaped brief or proposal, share and formulate ideas and identify where value can be added to the process or project. You will enjoy writing, articulating your ideas to designers and non-designers, and you like working with clients.
This would suit someone who has worked at one of the larger brand/strategy consultancies but wants to work closely with an owner and see tangible outcomes for their efforts.
You will have a decent level of familiarity with the agency/consultancy model and enjoy the challenge of working at a high level for a variety of clients.
