Beyond client work, you will be accountable for championing best practice and high standards across the core skills within the Consumer team including copy writing, idea generation and brainstorming, supplier liaison, talent and influencer programmes, proposal development and media strategies.
You’ll be a champion of creative brainstorming and working with the team and creative director to bring new ideas and concepts to your clients. You’ll attend workshops, exhibitions and openings to culturally expand your knowledge to inspire new routes to media and influencers. And you will coach and lead the team – along with your AD peer group – to be ambassadors across the agency and network.
