Digital Ad Ops Manager
Creative is one of the most crucial and high energy departments within VICE; it is the bridge between the VICE audience and brands that want to connect with them. Creative are the custodians of VICE culture in the commercial space - they take brand messages and brand money and make content, events, and activations that enrich the lives of young people.
As a VICE Creative, you will be a source of interesting, entertaining, and groundbreaking ideas that serve both our audience and our clients. You will attend briefings, brainstorms, and client presentations, and then oversee the execution of content and experiential projects.
You will have proven experience in the delivery of best in class branded video and editorial content, across multiple digital formats and platforms, preferably across different parts of the APAC region. You're more likely to come from a content production background than from an ad agency. An excellent storyteller and presenter, you can articulate ideas succinctly and compellingly.
Success in this role requires creative stamina; the ability to stay inspired and productive through tight deadlines, tough feedback, and tricky briefs. You will need a sense of humour, a sense of what's right, and a sense for what VICE stands for. You will need to work with all departments as well as people in the creative community. You will need to give and receive constructive feedback and work collaboratively with the APAC creative and client strategy teams.
