As a strategist in media, how would you feel about sitting with creative, digital & data teams? If you're someone who feels this is an approach that could help you create better solutions, then read on.
Agencies over the years have been looking to create client hubs or bespoke agency units to support larger portfolio brands, and this role sits in one of those. So, how does the set-up work?
Specialisms and silos for expertise but work together like any other media/creative partnership, however they sit in the same office, on the same floor and practically next to one another. Some briefs are media led, whilst others are creatively led and ultimately, you'll have the opportunity to influence across the board.
As the Group Strategy Director, you'll be one of two media dedicated strategists, deploying your skills on a multitude of projects and across a large portfolio. Some will be large, ongoing and in need of a big picture thinker, whilst others maybe only need a sprinkle here and there to spot opportunities.
However, the main stay is thinking outside the box, creating media firsts & looking at short term and long-term ideas. Most brands under the portfolio are well-known and common household names, meaning the client have deep pockets.
