Who you are:

You would describe yourself as constantly curious (researching for yourself, watching documentaries, or even reading books!), a keen learner (always wanting to know more/do more), opinionated (you have a voice and a view on everything but it’s not about being right . . . at least not all the time), love a challenge (it’s not the coolest clients that bring you joy, it’s about the challenge and ability to learn something new about a category, consumers or sometimes even yourself).
You’ll already be a Strategist or similar title at a Brand/Design Agency, or come from a research background, but have an understanding of brands and how research must translate into tangible actions for brands. You will have: an understanding of and experience in using and applying semiotics, the ability to craft a logical and inspiring narrative to give your strategic recommendations, the ability to research and write trend decks and thought pieces with little input or guidance, exposure to qual research and innovation workshops – coordinating of, writing stimulus and attending, and of course have excellent presentation writing and presenting skills in hopefully Keynote (but we’ll forgive you if it’s only Power Point).

We are Marks London a rapidly growing brand design consultancy with a network of 18 offices and 500+ employees worldwide across Europe and the US. Marks London is strongly connected to Birmingham and our European network (London, Paris and Amsterdam).

We are at the forefront of design thinking and sustainability with specialities across pack design, structural/3D design, innovation and strategy and proprietary tools that
allow us to asses and make recommendations before the design process begins. We may not be the biggest or most popular kid on the block but we try harder with our challenger spirit.

Our people make us different and our working culture is upbeat and energetic. We work hard and deliver to short deadlines but without the bad politics and nastiness. We may be part of a larger corporate, but we still have the potential to make our office and culture our own. Time for Tea was started as an employee idea and that has morphed into a weekly Wednesday event where people volunteer to make/bake food with a theme and we chill out for 30min and chat with each other about non-work stuff.

What's in it for you:

• Competitive salary
• 25 days annual leave (+ 8 public holidays and the opportunity to buy 5 more days holiday after your first year)
• Closed over Christmas to New Year
• Pension scheme
• Health insurance collective
• Time for tea Wednesday afternoons
• Office membership to the Tate and VA
