Mid Weight Proposal Strategist - Manchester

Full-time United Kingdom Kyma Experience: Mid-Senior level

Role: Mid Weight Proposal Strategist

We are Kairos, a collection of award-winning creative agencies, and we're changing the way the next generation view advertising, and discover brands on social media globally. Specialists in influencer marketing, paid social, community management & content production, our creative social agency is one of the largest in the space.

Kyma Media sits under the Kairos Group, which operates as a Social-first Creative Media Publisher. Our core value proposition includes - Social Content Amplification, creating and distributing Branded & Original Content, AR & VR brand experiences as well as Paid social & consultancy. The Kairos Group also boasts ownership of Kairos Media, which operates as a social-first, media agency (you’ve probably heard of them…)

Operating and launching global campaigns from our Manchester & London HQ, we are growing rapidly due to the huge success we are bringing to our clients, in a space that many traditional media publishers are struggling to navigate.

We’re looking for an innovative and creative candidate to manage world leading & award-winning video gaming brand strategies, come and join the party.

The Role:

Numbers. Lots of numbers. Not the boring kind like trigonometry or pythagoras theorem, we’re talking about the kind that you love to be amongst, identifying key trends and data points that help you to shape strategies that leave our clients thinking “huh, they really do know what they’re talking about…”.

You may be the kind of person who finds creative solutions infuriating unless they’ve been backed up with strategy. Or, you might be the kind of person who knows when a snippet of strategy will suffice, and you’ll know exactly how much we need to have our clients begging for more.

As a Strategist you’ll bring your wealth of experience working with widely recognised brands to support not only our clients but the wider business to understand that STRATEGY ALWAYS WINS. You’ll have experience facing clients, have a horror story to tell, and can stay cool when getting pressed on the data that you’ve spent weeks* perfecting.

(*”weeks” is not reflective of our standard turnaround times - we work fast… hyper fast, faster than Usain Bolt on wheels, and hope you’d be up to the challenge)

Ironically a Creative is writing this, but we love you strategists. We know your power, and now we want to take over the world with you. So what will it take...

  • Collaborate with our Data & Insights and Creative Strategy teams to develop strategic recommendations that deliver against the KPI requirements of the brief.
  • Push the boundaries of strategic recommendations when it’s necessary in order to balance fame and fortune.
  • Run strategic workshops with the wider business during proposal building (to help shape proposals) but also during down-time (to help share your wealth of knowledge).

Requirements

What we’d love you to know:

  • You’ll have a thorough understanding of the social landscape, you don’t need to be glued to your phone all day every day - after all we have work to do, but you’ll know the differences between TikTok and IG Reels, and Twitch, YouTube & Snapchat.
  • The differences between CPA, CPM, CPI, CPE, C-3PO and how to calculate them.
  • What’s happening in the social industry, what’s working well and what sucks.
  • Data platforms, such as GWI, Newzoo & Google Analytics, if one of those freaks you out don’t worry we can help.

Requirements in no particular order:

  • Educated to Degree level in a relevant degree… you tell us
  • Ideally 2+ years experience in a creative agency role, but don’t be put off if you’ve got the credentials.
  • Experience with Photoshop/Design work and or any editing software (beneficial)

  • Experience working in Social Media (Influencers, Owned Media, Paid Media, Content, Creative will all form part of your day).
  • Experienced copywriter/writing
  • Don’t be a dick. We love team players.

When you apply:

  • Provide us with a case study of a project you’ve worked on that will grab our attention. It’s not just about the brand, it could be about the results, the process or even what learnings you took from it. BE BOLD!
  • Make sure the subject line states STRATEGIST SEEKS CHAOS, we like people who pay attention to the detail!
