The opportunity
Do you want to work with world famous sports clients and make ground-breaking creative?
Do you want to creatively lead the WAS Sports team here in London, and help drive the next chapter of Game Changing Sports Marketing?
Do you want to help shape our vision of sports marketing and make an impact across the industry?
We are looking for a Creative Director for We Are Social Sport, who has led the development of sport focused, award-winning work. You will have inspired and guided teams, helping them come up with striking ideas that connect with their intended audience. You will have effectively directed practitioners from diverse craft disciplines, and helped talented people collaborate to produce amazing work together. You will have worked closely with clients to help their brands drive meaningful impact and resonate deeply with people across social platforms.
What you’ll have delivered elsewhere
  • Your portfolio will feature striking and award-winning sport marketing work, with a focus on exceeding conventional expectations.
  • Your portfolio demonstrates innovation – playful use of technology and social platforms that have led to industry-recognised work.
  • Proven track record of leading creative development across diverse projects, ranging from bigger campaigns to small and brilliant single activations.
  • Experience ‘owning’ creative projects – from inception to completion.
  • Extensive experience collaborating with and directing multidisciplinary teams.
  • Demonstrated understanding of brand strategy, actively collaborating with strategists to shape creative briefs.
What else are we looking for?
  • A deep appreciation for sports and its vibrant communities, with deep understanding of its significance within broader cultural contexts.
  • A well-informed creative perspective on the sport industry, and a strong sense of what outstanding work looks like — particularly within the realm of sports marketing.
  • Leadership experience, including managing cross-disciplinary teams and cultivating talent within a creative department, contributing to its growth and development.
  • Skilled in effectively presenting and articulating ideas to both clients and colleagues, fostering engagement and consensus.
