*FIXED TERM CONTRACT FOR 12 MONTHS MATERNITY COVER*

WHO WE ARE

We think too much marketing isn’t us. It’s mass markets not audiences of one. Homogenous groups to be targeted, not individuals to be inspired. Segments to reach, not people with their own ideas and ambitions. It’s one size fits all and it’s dull.

When it comes to individuals, we’re fierce. We stand up for individuality. We speak up against bland, broad-brush generalisations. We fight for solutions that adapt to the individual’s needs, beliefs, behaviours and aspirations. And we commit to doing this in every aspect of our work for clients and their consumers.

We actively foster an inclusive workplace where diversity and individual difference are valued and leveraged to achieve the agency’s vision. And most importantly we value every individual’s wellbeing.

We are Fiercely Individual.

 

HOW WE DO IT

At RAPP we are fiercely focused on the individual and how we can create value from every individual’s experience with a brand. We do this across three capability areas: customer centric consulting, creativity that inspires action and customer experience management.

Our data analysts know who that person is. Our strategists understand what they want. And our award-winning Technologists and Creatives know how to get it to them.

RAPP is an integral part of Omnicom’s Precision Marketing Group, comprising 4,000 creatives, technologists, strategists, and data and marketing scientists across 40 global markets. Find out more; www.rapp.com.

YOUR ROLE

As Strategy Director your role will focus on creating transformative customer experiences, with a focus on one of our international Automotive clients, but the long term potential to work across and support clients across our client base.

A curious mind is key; constantly seeking those killer insights into human behavior, business performance, and the moments that matter. We need an innovation champion who’s hungry to turn those insights into brilliant creative or digital solutions and understands the critical role that strategists play.

We’re looking for strategically minded individual with understanding of marketing technology as an enabler of CRM, customer experience, and loyalty, a passion for interesting brands and the ability to cross-pollinate ideas and initiatives. Someone who knows why a specific solution is the best for its purpose and can articulate its benefits to the people who will be using it. This is a brilliant but complex account that would benefit from previous automotive experience, but if you’re willing and able to engage with the sector’s specific challenges don’t let the absence of that experience hold you back.  

Data is at the heart of everything we do, so in addition to working closely with the wider strategy, client leadership and creative teams, you’ll also be supported by our market leading marketing science offering. You’ll need to able to absorb a large amount of detail, whilst also developing and driving the overarching strategy for the account.

 [THE MOST IMPORTANT PART] YOU

What we need from you; to jump in. Find problems. Fix them. Builds relationships. Imagine new solutions. Invent them. Challenge us and our clients equally.
