    Creative Director

    Media.Monks is a digital-first marketing and advertising services company connecting the dots across content, data & digital media and technology services. Inspired by the connectivity and flexibility of technology APIs, Media.Monks' single-P&L model offers brands seamless access to a nearly 6,000-strong team of digital talent organized across 57 talent hubs in 33 countries.

    With us, you'll find a diverse group of colleagues with different backgrounds and perspectives. We believe everyone has something of value to offer, and that sustaining a truly diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace begins with fostering an environment where people can be themselves, authentically, every day. We want to build something with the potential to change the heart of our industry, and we'd love to include your unique perspective.

    Description

    We´re looking to add another CD to its superband of creatives. In this role, you'll provide our clients with creative decks, ideas and direction, bringing forth award-winning products and campaigns for some of America's leading technology brands. If you are the Don(na) Draper of the digital and social age, we'd love to pick your brain.

    Role & Responsibilities

    • As a CD at a global creative production agency, life's a pitch: you engage projects for a living and relay responsibilities to others once the ball is rolling in the right (creative) direction.
    • You'll work as part of our pitch pack to win pitches and lead concepts for our A-list client.
    • You'll also own the creative execution of projects, seeing them through from pitch to final delivery.
    • You'll visit clients throughout the region, leading workshops and providing creative direction for any kind of project.
    • A strong focus on social content, script writing, and film production is a must.
    • You bring top-notch production thinking to the table and provide creative consultation when it comes to the nitty-gritty of cutting-edge campaigns.
    • As a CD at MediaMonks, you're part of the most awesome production agency on the planet, operating as 'one office across 11 locations' with an incredible in-house team of 3000+ Monks and counting.

    Requirements

    • We're looking to hire an all-round concept developer with at least 2 years of CD-level experience in advertising or production at the highest international level.
    • Make no mistake, this role requires you to put pen to paper and come up with buzzworthy ideas, and have the ability to present them in equally compelling decks.
    • You will take ownership for the entire campaign, providing strong leadership and direction throughout all stages of a project, including the management of a wider team of creatives, designers, and animators.
    • You know how to show leadership without a show of force, giving our in-house teams a clear creative direction and ownership over their projects.
    • You can independently lead fast-paced pitches but also love going the extra mile when painstakingly pushing running projects to perfection.
    • You're a digital genius with an innate taste for the latest and greatest social platforms, digital technology, an instinct for snappy writing and a natural feel for visual design.
    • You're confident leading different types of work spanning from digital and social campaigns to platforms and websites, hero films and TVCs, and installations.
    • For film-based projects, it's all about the story: you champion storytelling and are experienced working together with film directors on integrated projects.
    • In digital, the user experience is king, and so you should be a sovereign when it comes to shaping concepts that captivate and inspire.
    • With strong pitching and presentation skills, you can represent MediaMonks by showcasing our cases, capabilities and culture to clients.
    • As part of a global company operating as one team across time zones, you need to be able to successfully direct work at a distance.
    • You understand the process and politics of advertising inside out and know when to be pragmatic if that's what it takes to keep things moving.
