Job Description

MediaLink is seeking a Director to help it grow the premier management consultancy serving the entertainment, media and marketing and technology sectors. Corporate & Business Unit Strategy and Private Equity advisory are two of MediaLink's fastest-growing service offerings. We support c-suite leaders and the top global TMT investors at every phase of strategy development, deal diligence and implementation.

As a Director at MediaLink you will play an integral role in helping our clients navigate the transformational change confronting their businesses. Directors serve as engagement managers or key client-facing team members on complex projects, with responsibility for leading key workstreams, supporting day-to-day execution and engagement with clients, and helping to develop junior team members. The role is an ideal career accelerator with significant growth potential for an experienced early-career executive passionate about the future of media, marketing, and entertainment. A successful person in this role will have a bias for action, a sensitivity to client challenges, and a comfort with hypothesis-driven and analytical problem solving.

Key Responsibilities
• Develop thoughtful and practical business strategies and clearly defined execution plans to ensure positive impact and sustainable results
• Serve as ''quarterback'' on client deliverables, working both autonomously and in close partnership with senior leadership and junior analysts to deliver rigorously supported solutions to complex problems
• Drive quantitative market, company, and competitive analysis, either independently or in collaboration with junior team members, to unlock compelling insights for clients and support recommendations
• Foster and manage internal working team and external client relationships, delivering collaboration and productivity throughout an engagement
• Supervise junior staff with respect to approvals around communication, prioritization of project workload and evaluation of quantitative analysis and client deliverables
• Collaborate with senior leadership to identify potential new client opportunities, support business development and structure a bespoke approach for each engagement
• Contribute to MediaLink's industry-leading thought leadership platform with unique insights, innovative thinking and exceptional written and verbal communication skills
• Leverage industry network, trades and MediaLink intelligence to uncover trends and opportunities for active client assignments and future business development

Your Experience
• 5 years of work experience in management consulting, investment banking, or private equity
• MBA or other relevant advanced degree highly desirable, but not required
• Demonstrated experience in applying well-developed problem-solving skills (quantitative, conceptual, analytical) and crafting original strategic recommendations with limited involvement from leadership
• Proven track record of selling through recommendations to internal teams and/or clients; demonstrated success in turning ideas into actions
• Strong written and verbal communication skills
• Fluency in media/advertising/technology industry terms and trends
• Ability to partner across the organization to drive process efficiency and engagement objectives
• Strong project management skills – ability to plan, manage and structure work in an efficient and timely manner
