We change buying behaviours. We change brand perception and performance. We change our clients’ bottom line.

The Head of Content will be active in our research and discovery work, contributing to survey, focus group and workshop activities. This will also include analysis and recommendations at brand level in addition to direct content strategy development.

  • be proficient in use of modern techniques, formats and channels
  • be well practiced in weaving a creative concept or a brand positioning line into even the most technical content
  • be utterly furious by now at the various typos, punctuation faux pas, and miscellaneous missing or misplaced apostrophe’s appear, even in this very job posting.
  • enjoy digging deeply into the world of your client, and your client’s client. How else would you do the job?
  • be a natural collaborator, and an excellent communicator in the written and spoken word, online and in the room
  • have excellent planning, organisation, human and negotiation skills
