Job Description
Agency Overview:

The creative department here is like that of any other agency but we aren't bogged down by dated holding company models and we aren't owned by a consulting firm. Our connection to Endeavor is our unfair advantage, helping us connect brands to culture through sports, music, film, and fashion like no other. The ideas are boss, able to be taken to the world in whatever way they work best via advertising, branding, social media, PR, experiential, digital and more.

You will be highly conceptual - ideating against each brief from platform concepts down to how concepts are brought to life through various executions. You will see through to execution in partnership with your Copywriter counterpart, production, account management and with close mentorship by your Creative Director.

You are a thinker and a maker. You are a listener and a teacher. You thrive in a fast-paced environment. You are instinctively curious about culture and trends. The opportunities here are endless, so your creativity must be too.

• Strong background Design, Advertising, Marketing or relevant field
• Extremely skilled in developing high-level brand concepts as well as articulating those concepts in executions across various media channels
