Strategist

The Strategist develops strategic recommendations for a range of clients. Reporting to a Director of Strategy, and multi-tasking over a number of projects, the role requires someone with a creative and entrepreneurial drive who’s capable of thinking quickly on their feet.

Once a strategist has established themselves as a reliable and integral team member, they will start to take a larger role in strategy plan creation, taking the lead in combining creativity with insightful overviews, and beginning to present sections or entire presentations to the client. For this reason, a strategist must be able to work comfortably in a team setting alongside a Director, but also capable of leading strategy projects alone.

  • Gather and synthesize data and insights to help develop well-informed and effective strategic plans
