Strategy Director

United States Strategy

The role

We Are Social is a global agency who deliver world-class creative ideas with forward-thinking brands. We connect people and brands in meaningful ways by creating ideas people like and share. We call this social thinking. With an international team of over 1000 and offices in New York, Madrid, London, Paris, Milan, Munich, Berlin, Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo and Sydney our mission is to put social thinking at the center of marketing. We work with clients including Adidas, Bumble, Google, Netflix and Audi on global, regional and local projects.

We’re focused on creating ideas powered by people, not platforms – a formula that’s proven very successful for over a decade. As we continue to grow, we are looking for a Strategy Director to become part of our burgeoning strategy team. This is a team of brand thinkers with an implicit understanding of social media, delivering culturally-led strategies that result in more effective work for our clients.

This is a senior client-facing role, developing creative strategic solutions for clients’ business problems as we help them navigate the rapidly evolving world of marketing and communications. A world where traditional models of advertising continue to be under threat and social media’s importance in the broader marketing mix becomes ever more significant.

If you are looking to apply your considerable strategic skills at the forefront of communication, in an agency built for the future, and understand the strategic opportunity social media holds for brands, this is the job for you.
