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.


Here’s what you’ll be doing:

  • Serving as a founder and architect of our Amsterdam Creative + Innovation hub, building our reputation for creative excellence in an evolving industry
  • Studying the success of our Hubs + Studios around the globe and interpreting those successes into a dutch-based model that expands our business
  • Driving innovation by continually pushing the boundaries of our creative product into new and relevant areas
  • Driving true collaboration, establishing creative as a lead component of integrated client programs across multiple industry sectors and teams
  • Executing current client projects that exceed expectation and deliver on client objectives
  • Building a team of creative talent
  • Storytelling with channel neutral ideas that break through and command attention
  • Hunger, passion and tenacity; you don’t wait to be told, you go out and do
  • What you’ll need to get here:

  • Experience building and leading creative teams.
  • Impressive online portfolio showcasing a variety of work from traditional to social and digital
  • Proven track record of success leading small and large creative programs across a wide variety of industry sectors by linking creative strategy to client objectives
  • Ability to take an idea and transform it into a 360, multi-channel campaign.
  • Ambition to push yourself and your team outside of the traditional lines, being agile, adaptable and able to work around roadblocks
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves and get into the work
  • Superb presentation and communication skills, bringing charisma and passion to sell ideas to both client contacts and internal stakeholders
  • Ability to thrive under pressure, juggling multiple clients, teams and deadlines
  • Love of business development and the ability to grow the business through new client wins and organic growth of existing clients

    The Global Studios:

    As we develop the communication campaigns for our clients across the earned, owned, paid and shared space we turn to the creative and design expertise in the Studio to help develop and breathe life into our ideas.

    The ambition is to build and integrate the expertise of a new Studio throughout our US business as required working in a concurrent way with experts from our sectors and other areas of expertise such as behavioral insights, data + analytics, content + publishing and digital planning + optimization. We want to develop new ways of working that see content + publishing strategists working alongside film directors and data analysts working with designers, all focused on the same client centric goal.
