Let’s talk.

Happy people are the most inspired. No-one built a brand in a bad mood. That’s why we’ve created a workplace that allows people to take risks, find mischief, have a voice, speak up, out, call it and never be afraid to be challenged.

We’re on the lookout to expand our team a little. If bandstand feels like the right fit, we’d love to hear from you.

The role

You are the dynamo within the Client Services team.

With around three years agency experience, you’ll be supporting the senior client service team members at bandstand, as well as running your own projects.

We’re hard to put into a box. A Soho creative agency that is part brand consultancy, part design studio and part integrated advertising communications. Like a good Negroni or Neapolitan ice-cream; it works.

About you

You’ll be pro-active, organised, reliable, entrepreneurial and opinionated. You make great work happen effortlessly. You’ll be persuasive and positive, with a can-do attitude.

You’ll be able to write a clear, inspiring brief and will help prepare and contribute to creative briefings and creative reviews. You’ll be creatively driven and will have a point of view on the creative development and direction of campaigns.

You’ll demonstrate strong presentation skills and be able to hold a room’s attention. You’ll have the ability to build solid, trusted working relationships internally, creating great relationships with clients and colleagues that are built on mutual respect and your ability to add value and energy.

You’ll be a collaborator with the ability to work with a number of partner agencies, depending on the business and will have the ability to manage both up and down, building long-term and trusted relationships. You will not only work closely with our clients marketing teams but creative and media agency partners also.

You will manage projects from inception of client brief to final fulfilment of integrated multi-channel campaigns including brand identity, print collateral, press and OOH, film and web builds. You’ll be trusted to manage small scale production processes and to support large scale productions; from pre-production through to final approval and delivery of assets.

You will be a digital native; comfortable posting content across a range of social media platforms, ideally with experience in running a web build or social media campaign. You keep your eyes on latest advancements in social updates, you know what brands are doing well, and what’s really not working. You will inspire those around you with your knowledge and inherent curiosity to find out the what, the why, and the how.

We are looking for self-starters with a hunger to learn. You will be given responsibility from the outset and plenty of scope to learn how to deliver a wide range of campaigns from some really inspiring people.
