Head of Social Innovation

Brand & Advertising NL

For our office in Amsterdam we are looking for a Head of Social Innovation that has an insatiable hunger for new technologies and innovations with which you'll bring our Social Content team to the next level!

At Dept, we believe in the imaginative application of creativity, technology and data to create beautiful ideas, products and campaigns. With an ambitious and collaborative approach, we develop adaptive (digital) services and applications that capture the imagination, whilst delivering impressive returns for our clients. Our Creative Teams are responsible for coming up with ideas that capture the audience's attention, inspire behavioural change and make a real difference to our clients’ businesses.

The Head of Social Innovation inspires and leads the creative social team to make a difference to consumers’ behaviour by influencing change through ideas, creativity and the use of interactive media. Your role is to reimagining social media with a radical innovative approach, change perspectives and inspire the Creative Teams and clients.

This role requires close collaboration and integration with all areas of our business (creation, media, tech and data) and you will be expected to be able to frame your work in a solid strategy that’s grounded in insight and underpinned by a deep understanding of digital platforms. We are fortunate to partner with forward-thinking clients, including bol.com, Audi, Uber, Eurojackpot and Pathé.

We are a young, international agency working with a wide range of brands such as Uber, Phillips, Fitbit, Bol.com and many more. One agency where creativity, technology and data come together. We help reinvent & accelerate our clients’ digital realities by creating experiences that people want and organisations need. And yes, we are eager to bring on board the most talented experts in the game. But we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is open to learn and strives for a better world, takes the stage, is a futurist at heart, and who is down to earth, like most of us at Dept. Ultimately, we are looking for a unique individual who can strengthen our collective. We strongly support diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
