Strategic Planner

Hot on the heels of business growth, McCann Bristol is looking for a Senior Strategic Planner to strengthen our planning function, who’ll deliver the insights that transform our creative solutions and unleash business transformation for our clients.

Who we are.

We are McCann Bristol, part of McCann Worldgroup, a global agency network that delivers culture-shaping work for some of the world’s biggest brands.

In 2017, we were named Network of the Year at the EPICAs and the International ANDY awards. We also won the most top awards at the Cannes Lions, including what is one of only two campaigns ever to win four Grands Prix.

We’re a team of passionate creatives, strategists and engineers from a wide mix of backgrounds. But there’s a lot that unites us – like caring deeply about everything we make. And though our skillsets are wide and our process knowledge is deep, we are all still learning every day.

The part you’ll play.

As Strategic Planner you’ll have be able to demonstrate a clear talent for getting under the skin of clients’ brands and their commercial challenges.

You’ll have a completely through the line background and will thrive on developing integrated strategy based on extracting meaning from data, uncovering impactful insights and simplifying the complex, leading to inspiring creative briefs and expansive discussions with our clients.

What you’ll bring to the table.

  • Experience in strategy and planning within an integrated agency environment
  • A track record of successfully delivering strategic projects
  • A lateral and creative thinker with the ability to make complex topics understandable
  • Innately inquisitive about human behaviour, society and culture
  • Conversant with different research methodologies and capable of knowing how and when to apply them
  • A deep understanding of the intricacies of the customer experience in an omni-channel world
  • Clear ability to deliver cross-channel strategies

The truth.

At McCann, we’ve spent more than a century building successful brands using one simple philosophy: Truth Well Told. It’s our belief that consumer insights based on truth are crucial to building brands that last.

Working with McCann will be both fun and challenging. We want you to grow with us and create work our clients will be excited about and work you will feel proud of.

Our commitment to equal opportunities.

For us, diversity is a business imperative – one that must be embedded into every aspect of how we operate in order to drive success. Simply put, we believe an encouraging and inclusive environment makes sound business sense.

As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, it’s vital that the talent mix in our agencies encompass all dimensions of diversity, and that we demand the same of the people we work with.

Conscious inclusion encompasses social, cultural and cognitive differences and cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It is the integration of this philosophy that allows us to create meaningful experiences for our employees, drive better business practices with our vendors and clients, and ultimately lead with purpose.
