Senior Strategist job example
You’ll be leading on strategy for some impressive clients – as a thought leader and an influential person who can charm and give clients something to think about – in equal measure! Ideally also you’ll be highly commercial and able to empathise with their business needs to drive the best strategy.
You will be an experienced Strategist or Planner with first rate knowledge of digital, but also other channels. You’re fanatical about new technology, and large web builds (and making a strategy central to a website), and of course data to inform decision making. Often you will have some team leadership as well as broad experience of digital campaigns, CRM, mobile and web development projects.
Here are a few pointers on what a Head of Strategy's role could entail
You’ll think strategically and create solutions across design and build, digital/site strategy, social, mobile and campaign based projects. You’ll most likely lead a team, each playing their own role in delivering the goods, collectively pulling together to work as a team. As head of the department, web, digital/site strategy, social, mobile and campaign planning, all of which come with sizeable budgets and outstanding capabilities to deliver internally.
Naturally you’ll have a solid history in working within a senior capacity delivering digital strategy, leading teams and enjoy working directly with clients to truly understand their business, their challenges and unearthing the solutions.
