  • Lead and participate in the account management team by coaching clients and colleagues alike, and managing key day-to-day activities across a range of brand strategy, identity and experience projects.
  • Focus on people development to grow the culture and foster a working environment to deliver against our strategy and standards.
  • Play an active role in supporting new business development activities with both current and new clients.
  • Support the company’s profile-building efforts and other marketing activities.

  • Advanced understanding of branding, strategy, design and application – both in theory and practice.
  • Proven track record in creating and implementing transformational branding solutions.
  • Demonstrated technical strategy skills, complemented by an understanding of how branding works in a broader context – in terms of design, language, culture and commerce.
  • Broad experience of corporate branding, consumer branding and retail experience.
