Creative Content Lead


We are looking for a Creative Content Lead to join our growing team in Amsterdam! 

Dept is fast becoming one of the world's most successful agencies. To that end, we work with a team of smart and fanatical creatives for the best, most notorious and most loved brands. Does this sound exciting to you? We promise you it is! But you only really experience that when you start working for us. Are you the nation's best creative lead who wants to make the most progressive work with us? Then we will prepare the (digital) coffee in advance.

For this role we are looking for someone with fluent Dutch and English.

We are looking for a creative lead with extensive experience whose hands itch. He/she understands that people are not always waiting for advertising and therefore want to shake the foundations of the Netherlands and surroundings with his or her concepts. These concepts range from innovative social media to live stunts and from online video formats to guerrilla ideas. Everything is allowed for you to create content that doesn’t feel like advertising at all. Someone who tackles all creative space with both hands, but also knows how to inspire and guide our club of creatives. We are looking for someone who doesn't care about awards, but is secretly a little proud that there are a few to his or her name. But above all, we are looking for a creative lead who knows how to combine the strengths of a full-service agency like Dept, from producers to designers and from innovation to digital marketing.

Please note that with your application we require you to submit a portfolio that speaks volumes about your talent, skills and experience. We look forward to seeing what you’ve got. 

We are a young company and the best minds work every day for a wide range of customers, such as, Eurojackpot, Converse, Chocomel, Netflix and many more. 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 eager to learn and strives towards a better world, takes the stage, is a futurist at heart, and someone who is down to participate in curling activities once in a while. 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.
