Associate Director – Strategy – Leading Brand Strategy Agency – London

Salary up to c. £75,000 per annum + bonus

A leading global Brand Strategy & Innovation Consultancy with an enviable reputation for its strong client-base and outstanding thinking is seeking to appoint an Associate Director – Strategy to join its team.

The Associate Director – Strategy sits within the consultancy team and focuses on brand strategy (positioning/repositioning, architecture and portfolio work) and innovation work. The emphasis of this role, however, is to address key commercial and business problems for clients, so a rigorous business approach and an understanding of the broader commercial picture is essential. The Associate Director – Strategy will also be involved with pitching for, winning and leading projects for top-tier clients with support from an expert team. The role offers opportunities for line management and the development of people, as well as for developing the propositions that the business takes to its clients.

This role requires a strong understanding of brand & marketing strategy and innovation, but due to the commercial elements of the role it would suit someone who has worked within a management consulting setting as this person will be putting strategic and business-thinking at the heart of the client-work they lead. You will manage the profitability of large projects, including taking ownership of maximising revenue and decreasing costs where appropriate. You will be a whizz at extracting insights from complex research, and be able to turn these into inspirational actions for brand growth. Client relationship development will be a key priority for you, and you will be proficient in the whole client cycle from taking briefs, delivering proposals, opportunity spotting and project management.

The Associate Director - Strategy will:

  • have exceptional academics from a top-tier institution (Business Studies would be highly desirable).
  • be an outstanding strategic thinker with substantial commercial brand or marketing strategy experience in a brand strategy or innovation business, and/or a management consulting where you have focused on marketing strategy.
  • be able to analyze problems from a variety of perspectives and be able to extract insights and inspirational ideas from complex research.
  • have experience of taking a lead approach to key accounts – maximising profit from them, mining for opportunities, growing relationships and understanding key drivers to deliver outstanding solutions to client problems.
  • be personally inspiring and have both breadth of knowledge and deep specialist knowledge.

This is an outstanding opportunity to join a leading global brand strategy consultancy with a clear vision for success and what its next steps to further growth are, and be a contributor to that growth.
