Job Description

Fabulous opportunity for a Planning Director to head up the planning function at this outstanding integrated agency in Manchester.

If you're a planner / strategist in a similar role, or ready to make the step up, this is unquestionably an opportunity you should be considering - brilliant culture and vision, an inclusive, collaborative approach, exceptional clients and top notch creative output. All with excellent progression opportunities.

It could be you're already a Planning Director seeking a new challenge, or an experienced planner looking for that next step up. Either way, we'd like to hear from you.

This awesome agency has particular strengths within the retail / FMCG sectors, however, experience in these verticals isn't mandatory as what's more important is your ability to develop actionable insights from research outputs and translate these in to impactful campaign ideas alongside the talented creative team.

If successful you'll be responsible for quant and qual research, running workshops, deriving insight and developing integrated communications strategy. This isn't an agency run on buzzwords and egos, so we're looking for a pragmatic, down to earth strategist, with a clear ability to find develop activity that inspires clients.

You'll help define and refine briefs, plus generally shape and develop the planning function within the agency, so it's a brilliant role with significant forward opportunities and the potential for a seat on the board longer term.

Get in touch for immediate and confidential consideration.
