Leeds

Senior Partner Strategist

* No recruitment agencies please *

We are looking for a Senior Partner Strategist to work in our Insight & Strategy team, setting direction and leading the digital strategy for one of our biggest clients.

With strong business skills, you will be responsible for working in a long term, collaborative way with our client; helping define their strategy and identify the opportunities and projects that will help them grow. You will build relationships with senior members of the team and direct all strategic work, connecting all the pillar projects to one vision.

You must have experience of digital strategy and planning, understand major digital channels and have the ability to carry out appropriate analysis using a range of models to arrive at insights that drive client solutions. You will also need to have experience of leading workshops and inspiring teams. You will be responsible for projects and own them throughout the planning processes – operating upstream to define the customer and business need for marketing and downstream to brief the activation of programmes into specialist teams.

As a thinker you should be strategic in your nature, able to see the bigger picture and connect all the dots. You’ll need to be able to take ownership of projects but also to agile and able to switch your focus from one challenge to another. On projects that require cross-departmental collaboration you’ll work with other teams in the agency as well as the client to create the best possible solution. Your passion for marketing should shine through no matter what the subject.

You must feel at home in the demanding, fast-paced, accountable world of a marketing agency and feel excited by the opportunities this provides. You may be working agency side already, or you may be in a senior marketing role within an organisation. Experience of both would be a distinct advantage, but the exact mix and background of skills and experience will vary by individual.

This role is Leeds-based but will require some European travel.

If this sounds like the opportunity for you, then send your CV and covering letter to Jess.Kaye@homeagency.co.uk.
