WE ARE LOOKING FOR AN ALWAYS-CURIOUS DIGITAL AND CX PLANNER

You’re hungry, ambitious, driven by the desire to make great work and get exited by working across very different categories and pieces of business. You have built and honed your digital strategy skills in the past couple of years and are always looking for the next problem to sink your teeth into. You have a solid mental library of CX tools and ways of thinking that you apply and evolve with ease. You believe CX is the key to connecting business objectives, strategy, creative, design and development. You love obsessing over the humans we want to serve, data and the digital design process. You always have the bigger picture in mind and have a view on how every task and projects fits on the overall experience and channel ecosystem.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

• Grab a coffee and work through a client brief for a new website by looking at it from the consumer journey point of view and what the website SHOULD be doing.

• After chatting to a brand strategist who has taken you through some brand decks and explained the brand activation platform you spend some time crafting the base of an email strategy. You know that you`ve cracked it when you`re able to boil it down to a super-simple model everyone else in the agency will intuitively get.

• Finalize some super specific task briefs on the latest round of website amends, defining exactly who (dev / data / design) needs to perform which task and getting nods all around.

• Spend some time with a comms planner and help map out a campaign ecosystem, you have some great ideas on how to integrate social in a more meaningful way.

• Sit together with the data team to discuss learnings from the latest monthly report for a client website. Take those learnings and start drafting some actionable insights and recommendations.

• Get a new brief for an upcoming journey mapping project for a new treatment for cat migrane. Realize you know nothing about cats or migrane and start googling your head off and be amazed how quick the day flew by.

• Over the course of the next couple of days, you become the foremost cat migrane expert on the office, craft a research plan for the interviews, surveys and data analysis needed to kick start the journey mapping process.

• You get a kick out of working closely with other disciplines like digital production, tech, data, media, brand planning and creative.

• You can write briefs that are precise, provocative and built to deliver measurable results. They get creatives hungry for more and media planners to sigh with relief.

• You empathise with clients, walk in their shoes and grasp what is keeping them up at night.
