Our strategic practice helps us understand how consumers navigate brands and culture through rigorous research, measurement and analysis. You can be a part of that.
As an industry, we use a synchronized approach to creative and media, planning both at the same time—often as silos—inevitably getting to some kind of a stacked output: a media plan that forces a creative execution or a creative execution that forces a media plan. But the very best ideas typically come from an integrated approach where the creative and media talents come together to create a unified communications idea. This is what we believe at Accenture Song. Here, we challenge the existing industry model and have always preferred an integrated-planning approach. In order to continue to deliver on that approach, we’d like to hire a Brand & Communications Strategist who bridges the gap between brand purpose, media and creative and helps bring creative thinking to life across touchpoints and moments.
Help put together impactful brand and communication strategies rooted in business objectives, audience ecosystem and the competitive landscape. You will be challenging the client briefing, asking the right questions, hunting for insights and even conducting hands-on research whenever possible. You are comfortable starting a client-facing deck from scratch; Working with colleagues to manage in-house creative deliverables, including timelines, deadlines, and presentations;
As a T-shaped profile specialized in branding & communication you will often find yourself working with other strategists/experts (data, design, business…) to craft consistent brand experiences, go to market strategies and measurement frameworks for existing and new clients.
For our account manager you will be both a sounding board and an outboard brain to successfully manage the client relationship. In exchange for their commercial intuition, you will provide them with facts & strategy.
For our creatives, you will be the go-to person for inspiration. You bring research insights to life, write succinct creative briefings with thought-starters and give wings to creative ideas. You already have sufficient experience to feel whether an idea will work and have the guts to tell them if it won’t.
As a person you stay current and connected to popular culture in order to identify and predict relevant trends. You will regularly inspire your team and the agency with fresh perspectives on how brands can become more meaningful to the world in which they operate.
