As a company with studios across the globe, we power up the best minds from 31 teams in over 22 countries to create a unique skillset for each client. We spark ingenuity with global creative sprints that cross time zones and borders and spur on the best of our talent. That includes exceptional brand consulting and strategic design, brilliance in experience, retail and workplace design, and competition-smashing motion design. We are part of the WPP group.
The Strategy Director will play a key role in driving the success of not only clients, but also our own. Externally, they grow larger, long-term relationships and become the go-to advisor for executive-level clients. Internally, Directors help build practices and mentor team members to grow the capabilities of the firm. Directors create lasting impact by being part strategic advisor, part client developer, and part team builder. They inspire and lead teams to solve clients’ toughest brand and business challenges.
What we’re looking for
You will have experience in a similar role or are looking to step up from a current senior strategy role. Acting as a trusted advisor for executive-level clients on issues inside and outside the scope of current work; co-own (together with Client Services lead) the development of Brand Strategy projects and accounts; and lead multidisciplinary teams to identify client needs, understand categories they play in, articulate the story, develop recommendations, and present to clients to gain buy-in and drive action that achieves business goals.
You’re fluent in the world of positioning, brand architecture, naming and a proven record of pitching and winning.
We’d love you to bring some added super-powers be they copywriting, comms strategy or experience strategy to help give us the edge. You possess an inherent curiosity and you’re an innovative thinker with the ability to see the big picture, present and future, and explore possibilities with the client.
You will be results-focused and collaborative and possess an enthusiastic approach grounded in firm strategy.
Finally - our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
We believe diversity brings creativity, which is at the heart of everything we do. We are actively engaging in creating an environment free of discrimination, where our people and their uniqueness can shine and be celebrated. We’re working to set a standard for the industry as a whole, creating a culture of equity and belonging. We may not be perfect, and we know there is work to do, but we regularly check with our teams and Employee Resource Groups on how we are doing, using their insight to frame our thinking and actions, so we can all do better, working as one Landor & Fitch.
