Senior Strategist Branding

Brand & Advertising NL

For our office in Amsterdam we are looking for a Senior Strategist to strengthen our Brand & Advertising team and make our work even better.

As an experienced strategist, it is your responsibility to take the initiative in conversations with our clients about their business, brand, products or services and (partly) determine the course for their (digital) strategy. In addition to leading the conversation, you must be able to interrogate client briefings, write A+ debriefings and make concrete and feasible plans that help to realize the objectives of our clients. We expect your strategies to be insightful and relevant to consumers and the world they live in, and – equally important – spark the imagination of our creative teams.

Ultimately, your work must help ensure that everything we do at Dept is lifted to a higher level; with strategies that lead to outstanding creative work that exceeds the outcome clients were aiming for. You do this by translating the 5-year strategy that has been drawn up by the Strategy Director into a practical strategy for the next campaign. As a Strategist in Dept, you are therefore responsible for continuously monitoring the objectives of our clients.

You will work within an ambitious team of strategists who are constantly working to not only help our clients, but also fight to keep raising the bar for Dept. This requires a critical and creative mind, but above all a positive attitude.

We are a young company and the best minds work every day for a wide range of customers, such as, Eurojackpot, Converse, Chocomel 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.
