Fresh from winning the IAB Agency of the Year, Mr President are looking for the next hot team to come join us. Have a peruse of the job spec below. I do hope it's you.
Midweight Creative Team
You are a Creative Team with at least 3 year’s experience as the stars of your agency. The ones everyone asks to have on their briefs.
Your work is full of big, bold ideas, beautifully crafted. You think strategically and genuinely care about clients’ businesses and the challenges they face.
You’ve made print ads sing, films draw tears and even written tweets that cause a chortle. You’ve had plenty of experience concepting other stuff too - from experiential ideas to web apps to flying robots. But you’re not wedded to any of these channels, and believe that genuinely clever strategy and big ideas will always get you to the right answer. It may not even be advertising at all.
You are open-minded. Interested in everything and always exploring new frontiers. You are just as creative outside of work as you are 10-6. You might write poetry, run a creative club or knit presidential finger puppets, your creativity can’t help but burst out all over the place.
You’re entrepreneurial and excited by responsibility. You’re happy to work as part of a creative team and individually - and comfortable with sharing your ideas. You’re someone who can get down to the nitty-gritty hand-dirty bit too.
You’ve always wanted to work in a genuinely exciting small(ish) independent agency full of energy, talent and wonderful clients from around the world; and get them, us and yourself famous in the process.
