We are looking for a Senior Creative Strategist to join our Oslo office!
Over the last nine years, Precis has grown to be one of the leading digital marketing agencies in Europe. Based in the Nordics and London, we have helped our clients to succeed online by offering a wide range of services within digital marketing, analytics, data, and technology. In 2019, we developed further in our quest to master digital advertising by introducing creative services to the Precis offering.
The role of the Senior Creative Strategist is to bridge the gap between marketing operations and creative, building a strong affinity for both sides, and ensuring integrated creative processes. You will advise our key clients across portfolios and drive projects across an international creative team, with art directors, designers, digital specialists and data advisors to help diagnose client business problems and develop insights-driven creative solutions. It is expected that you have an interest and an understanding of the digital marketing landscape and the roles the different channels play in it.
We are looking for curious, creative thinkers with solid project management skills and solutions-oriented mindsets. We believe you are a collaborative individual with a knack for seeing the big picture and connecting the dots along the way. As a Senior Creative Strategist, you are an excellent storyteller that is skilled in translating data insights into digital-first creative solutions across the mediamix. The ideal candidate has deep knowledge of ad creative across visual channels such as Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat, the programmatic space, etc. and you can lead holistic comms planning work for digital marketing presence. The duality in this role demands a balance of a strategic thinker with vital creative background, strong project manager skills and clear understanding of the channel dynamics in the digital landscape where this communication will thrive.
All in all, this role is passionate about challenging traditional creative processes and helping Precis shape the future of creative in digital marketing.
