Group Planning Director

Company: VMLY&R
Location: Chicago
Posted on: January 15, 2021

Job Description:

At VMLY&R, we create connected brands. We resist the usual ways of seeing, doing and thinking - harnessing creativity, technology and culture - to reimagine the entire connected consumer experience. Our goal? To create work that becomes part of people's lives, to drive value for our clients and, in the best of cases, to impact the world. At VMLY&R we're reframing traditional planning for a more connected age. We have assembled a talented and diverse team of experts and are looking for a Group Planning Director who will be an active part of this growing global group.

  • People watch without being creepy?
  • Get irritated when people confuse data points with insights?
  • See an ad and immediately try to reconstruct the brief & insight that inspired the work?
  • Live for the presentations where it's impossible to tell where the strategy ends and the creative begins? If the answer is "yes," then you might be our next Group Planning Director. Read on. We're looking for someone who will:
    • Lead a small group of fearless planners across a number of key national accounts
    • Inspire great work and strategically bring it to life
    • Advocate for people, actual people, for our creatives and clients
    • Collaborate with other groups to identify and bring to life holistic, people-focused strategies across the entire audience journey.
    • Write and deliver written and visual creative briefs
    • Help influence and refine the vision for the brands they serve
    • Create confidence with each and every client interaction
    • Influence and challenge co-workers, partners and clients As part of the WPP Group, VMLY&R offers one of the best overall compensation packages in the business. You're right for this job if:
      • You believe brevity is a virtue
      • You love the guts and glory of the creative process and get your hands dirty alongside the creative team
      • You can bring a contrary point of view without being a career curmudgeon
      • You've got 10-15 years' experience in an insights or planning role
      • You've got a depth of experience with consumer goods with a clear focus on retail strategies VMLY&R is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
