R&CPMK is looking for a Senior Director of Strategy, reporting directly to the agency's Chief Strategy & Transformation Officer. In this position, you will use your previous experience, to help lead large-scale Strategy across the agency's wide portfolio of clients! You will work in partnership with the CSTO, to deliver a consistent approach to Strategy within the agency. You will also build your own independent relationships across the agency, our holding company, and our clients. You are expected to be able to lead client strategy in tandem with existing client leads, helping to provide a strategy POV; we want you to bring new and innovative ideas to the table; you will apply what's happening in the world at large to our agency's work, and help build a bridge between the two.
This is first and foremost not a client services role, although you may be providing services to a client; this is a strategy-focused role where you are here to innovate for clients as an intra-agency resource.
The Fine Print:
• Work directly with CSTO to develop and action strategy for the agency and its clients
• Partners with client-facing teams to immediately understand their needs and goals, and develop ways to help them see the bigger picture and apply that understanding

• Find opportunities to add additional support for clients, selling in additional services and campaigns as opportunities arise.
• Partner with the CSTO on new business opportunities.
• Continually assess and streamline marketing processes to drive efficiency.
You don't have to have a history in a strategy role; you have to have a history of thinking, and acting, strategically in a marketing role, from a consumer-focused point of view.
