Mid-Level Creative Team
Contact type: 6-Month Fixed Term Contract
Full Time/Part time: Full Time
Reporting into: Executive Creative Director
Our vision is to inspire brands and people to impact the world. To create big ideas that make a significant contribution to the planet, society, and the bottom line. We believe in today’s world this is the best way for our clients to achieve sustainable growth.
We achieve this by breaking down the barriers that restrict talent and ideas.
Which is why our teams work fluidly across 5 capabilities: Advertising, Innovation, Experience, PR, and Health. This allows us to not only operate but innovate at the intersection of capabilities and talent. We believe impact and magic lies at this intersection. Ogilvy scales this by seamlessly connecting and accessing the deep cultural expertise of 132 offices in 83 countries.
The result is multifaceted ideas for our clients that drive impact and are born from the intersection of platform x culture x technology.
We call this Borderless Creativity.
We’re looking for a Mid-Level Creative Team, a team who defies pigeonholes and hate silos.
If you’ve got a book full of ads, this probably isn’t the job for you. We’re looking for people who push beyond the usual borders of marketing – creating memorable experiences for people no matter where they are or what they’re doing.
You’ll be fascinated by all the ways people interact with brands. At every touchpoint. From the first time they hear about them, to the thousandth time they hear from them. And you’ll be itching to inject creativity into every interaction.
You’ll have ambitions as big as your ideas. You’ll embrace every brief as an opportunity. And you’ll believe – quite rightly – that creativity and science are two sides of the same coin.
We don’t need you to be a traditional art director / copywriter, or team. But craft is incredibly important. So at least one of you should be capable of making things very beautiful. And at least one of you should be a top-notch writer. You’ll be expected to teach these craft skills to the junior creatives.
A bit about you:
You’ll likely have a few years under your belt within traditional advertising, though this isn’t essential, and the remit will stretch far wider than that. A love of retail would be a bonus. F1 fans are always welcome.
You’ll be responsible for the look of the overall finished product. They are involved in creating a campaign that has an instant, positive impact on the consumer to promote the product or brand being worked on. They can be involved in all the different forms of marketing. An Art Director will work in close partnership with other creatives and have input to the copywriting as well. An Art Director at Ogilvy will produce big picture marketing for big picture clients.
