ROLE:  Comms Planner

LOCATION:  Canary Wharf 2 days a week from late 2021


As one of our team of client side strategic planners,  your mission will be to plan highly effective marketing communications for this famous Financial Services brand. 



you’re a mid-weight integrated comms planner with 4+ years of experience looking for client side experience or with that background already. You’ll be a collaborative self-starter, able to influence and inspire creatives, campaign managers and a range of business stakeholders.



You’ll be working directly in our client team as part of their Payments Marketing division.  They live and breathe B2B marketing so we’d want you to share their enthusiasm for it too, with relevant experience ideally in Financial Services too (although telecoms or utilities experience would also be great). 

For now, the role will be WFH so you’ll need great connectivity at home although we will supply you with a laptop or macbook.   From late 2021, you’d be based in Canary Wharf, probably 2 days a week.



In this busy and fast-paced role, you might find yourself: 

  • Developing B2B marketing strategies and plans, based on business strategies and roadmaps
  • Translating business solutions (NPD, etc) into clear customer value propositions, strategic frameworks and briefs that act as a springboard for winning communications
  • Commissioning research and mining existing insight as the voice of marketing within multi-disciplinary project teams
  • Developing compelling and motivating comms briefs and RTBs - and then briefing and collaborating in the creation of TTL campaign materials from brand building ATL through to sales comms, 121, CRM, digital and social content

WHAT SKILLS & EXPERIENCE WILL HELP YOU BE SUCCESSFUL: We’re looking for an outgoing, proactive and personable through-the-line planner with 4+ years of experience in an agency’s planning team or within a client organisation. 

You’ll be a strong and positive energy within the team, championing the consumer and driving customer-led comms and perspectives wherever possible. 

Working across a wide range of comms projects, you’ll be able to:

  • formulate innovative yet pragmatic and actionable strategic thinking at pace
  • work both collaboratively and independently as needed with a wide group of colleagues and stakeholders
  • evaluate ideas and concepts against strategic frameworks, briefs and brand best practice
  • bake effectiveness measurement into comms plans by defining KPI’s and metrics aligned with each project’s measurement approach

  • mine learnings from other sectors and projects by collaborating with planning, insight and research and business teams.
