Strategic thinking underpins everything we do at Consider, and as a Strategist you will play a key role in making it happen, to help our clients grow and ensure the creative work we do is constantly pushing boundaries. We are a tight-knit team with a strategic offering that continues to grow – this a role that you’ll be able to get stuck into and take ownership of from the very beginning. You're an expert at managing the fine detail of multiple projects with a minimum of two to five years' strategy experience.

You're confident in generating insights about our clients’ audiences and developing strategies that help them engage their supporters, students and members.

You’ll be able to identify problems and opportunities, and be adept at communicating your ideas clearly and succinctly to both our clients and our creative team. You have a number of strategic skills at your disposal and adapt your approach to suit each brief that comes your way. You love building relationships with creatives, client services, and clients to make sure our work is the best that it can be. You will be managed by our strategist Amy Nield, and will help her shape the future of strategy at Consider.
