With an international team of thinkers and doers spread throughout offices from New York to Dubai, London to Sydney, Toronto to Tokyo, our mission is to put social thinking at the center of marketing.

Great ideas can come from anywhere across the agency. It will be your job to spot, inspire, ideate, and develop great ideas and then turn them into great executions.

• You will be teaching by doing, nurturing, and showing writers, art directors, and other creatives the big opportunities

You should also be confident in all of the areas laid out below:
• Leadership. This isn’t all about you coming up with the idea every time. It’s also about teaching people how to do it themselves and bringing out those qualities in them
• Art-Obsessed. You won’t just love creative work, you will live it. In fact, you are probably fixated with design, writing, music, and photography and want to talk to others about it
• Presentation. You will be comfortable standing in front of a room with everyone’s eyes on you. You will be able to present work with a fully thought-through argument. You will be eloquent and able to articulate your thoughts and capable of adapting your presentation style to suit the situation
• Persuasion. You will be good at winning people around to your way of thinking. Especially if they’re clients
• Pitching In. You will not be above lending a hand to others and doing things that fall outside the remit of a traditional creative. We are all in this together
