Innovation & Strategy Director / Innovation & Strategy Agency / London / £70K to £90K depending on experience

Our client is an industry-leading Innovation and Strategy Agency based in central London. They have an unrivalled international and multi-sector client-list spanning some of the world’s biggest and most recognisable brands. They operate in a highly unique manner, crafting solutions to needs their clients hadn’t recognised they had, and finding opportunities where none were thought to exist. They are looking to hire an experienced and highly talented Innovation & Strategy Director to lead the work in their Product & Service Innovation division. 

This will be a senior role within the team, with responsibility for the overall management and quality of projects. You will be responsible for producing top-quality outputs resulting in outstanding new products and services for the agency’s clients. It is critical that you have had exposure to insight generation leading to innovative solutions.  You will also possess a strong understanding of the Innovation ‘funnel’ and the feasibility of implementing ideas. Candidates with backgrounds in Innovation and Strategy agencies alongside some client-side work will be particularly welcome. However, they are willing to consider people with purely client- or agency-side backgrounds.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Have substantial experience working in an agency with a focus on delivering innovative and stimulating work, while also engaging with Qualitative Research to generate the insights that will lead to new products and services
  • Have exposure to at least one of the following sectors: FMCG, TMT, Pharmaceutical or Banking in an Innovation and Strategy capacity
  • Boast a strong academic record, with a 2:1 or above from a respected university
  • Display an ability to think creatively and utilise others’ research to generate innovative and commercially successful projects for a wide-range of clients in different sectors

    This is a great opportunity for an individual with an outstanding creative mind to work with industry-leading Innovation and Strategy professionals in a truly global agency.
