Position at Hill+Knowlton Strategies
Always in Beta. Our client obsession means constantly evolving new products + services.
At H+K our belief is that the agency is a canvas for everyone to write their own story. This job description is written at a moment in time; whatever role you take at H+K we expect you to evolve that role; it should be different tomorrow than it is today and set new standards in the industry.
We have a very clear blueprint and process to applying our creativity across our business and across our Innovation + Creative hubs. What we call Applied Creativity. As part of the process, we have clear seven-step data and insight-led process. It runs from the brief, audience mapping, the development of insights leading to an actionable cause and story arcs across different audience types (from regulatory, investor, consumer to government) and then onto the development of content + publishing strategies and iterative measurement system.
This process is applied consistently through the agency, across countries, sectors and teams; when everyone’s applying it, it becomes very powerful. Concurrent working along with a shared language and a shared approach leads to an easily shared understanding of problems and opportunities and the ability to apply creativity effectively.
In addition to our I+C hubs we also have global network of 18 Studios supporting our business with design and production expertise.
What we are looking for:
We would like to appoint a Creative Director to become an accelerant and further catalyst for development of our innovation + creative hub and the Studio in Amsterdam into a leading creative, strategic and innovation hub for our clients and network.
We are offering a unique opportunity for an ambitious Creative Director to serve as one of the founders of Innovation + Creative hub and also build out our Amsterdam Studio. You are a strategic visionary with a relentless passion for innovative client work, who knows how to get your ideas heard, and isn’t afraid of getting your hands dirty while building up a craft-based team around you. Your entrepreneurial spirit is your driving force.
You will work alongside the Directors of Insight + Creative Strategy, Content + Publishing, Digital Planning + Optimization and Data + Analytics to develop award winning and innovate ideas for our clients.
