Strategic Lead

Attention Spaghetti unravellers. Clarity givers. Excitement bringers.

A great role has opened up for a Strategic Lead here at Mr B & Friends. Someone who loves developing brilliant strategic thinking that has a positive impact on their client’s business.

Permanent role, full-time or by negotiation. Salary depending on experience: £36-52k p.a.

Strategic Lead

Our agency prides itself on offering brand expertise with no added nonsense. So if you’re motivated by the beauty of clarity and simplicity, and creating work that makes people tingle with excitement, then we’d love to hear from you.

Mr B & Friends is one of the UK’s leading independent brand agencies. We deliver brand expertise to ambitious organisations and help them to grow, engage, transform and make an impact with their audiences.

And it’s how we do what we do that really stands us apart. No added nonsense means that we get to what matters most, and remove the bullshit, complexity and fluff that plagues our industry. Clients love it. We love it.

Business has returned really positively for the agency from existing clients and a number of exciting new business wins. This means our brilliant Strategy team needs bolstering with an experienced Senior Strategist who can lead on brand strategy, marketing, and marketing comms projects.

If you’re looking to work with a talented and committed bunch of brand experts, please get in touch. This is ideally a permanent role but we would also be open to the possibility of a mid to long-term contract.

Energy, experience and passion are vital!

Ideally, you’ll have significant brand strategy experience in an agency or a similar environment. You’ll be comfortable delivering a real variety of brand transformation projects across a diverse mix of B2B and B2C clients, covering immersion and stakeholder engagement through to positioning and brand strategy development.

The ability to inspire and bring people on the journey is critical.

Marketing and comms planning experience would be an added bonus, as would experience in delivering internal engagement / internal comms programmes.

Great package on offer.

On top of your salary (£36k to £52k depending on experience), 24 days holiday and pension contribution, we have curated twenty nine (yes, you read that correctly, twenty nine) inspiring employee benefits as part of our Friends Pact, which is quite possibly the most progressive benefits package in the agency world.

We are also fully flexible. Work from home, work from the office, you decide what works best for you, your colleagues, your clients.

Runway East on Bristol Bridge is our home; a great central environment that we are using as our hub in our flexible and hybrid approach to working.
