Job Description & Qualifications

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES


• Create and integrate digital strategy into the overall marketing plan. Understand the client’s business problems and use data & analytics to create digital strategies that seamlessly integrate with other channels: ATL, PR, out of home, in store, etc. This involves collaborating with the Integrated Agency Team and/or the internal team involving planning, creative, PR, Media, and other professionals to produce several rounds of Brand Engagement Toolkits or other identified outputs.


• Understand consumer behaviour and brand positioning across several markets and counsel local teams to execute campaigns in an efficient and grounded way that consumers would engage and understand. This could involve multimarket coordination.


• Understand the relationship between brands and digital channels. You are expected to have expertise in understanding how digital channels work, how consumers behave and use the channels, and the social context brands operate on.


• Mentor and provide thought leadership. Be on top of the latest trends and developments in the digital space that could potentially impact business and clients. You are expected to initiate cascades, speak to internal teams and undertake workshops.


• Build and nurture client relationships. Understand what keeps them awake at night and what are the challenges and visions for their businesses. Offer solutions and be the counsel championing digital in their businesses. This involves a proactive approach of coming to them with insights and solutions or proposing digitally centric projects that could push the needle.


• Write cohesive briefs and collaborate closely with Data Analysts & Creative. As a strategic lead, you are the perfect bridge between strategy, planning, and creative. You do not only understand how things work theoretically, you also understand how strategy should translate into content to be understood by consumers. You use this knowledge to write cohesive, feasible, and grounded briefs and to guide them in ideation. You do not just lead strategy meetings. You participate in brainstorms too.


• Lead and mentor dedicated team members. As a senior leader of the team, you are expected to possess the trifecta of skills that should have brought you to where you are: data & strategy, creative understanding, and business. You are expected to manage a team of digital team members with different skillsets under you, mentor them, and design their career paths.


• Say YES and NO at the right time. We want to please our clients and internal teams. We want them to see our value. However, this doesn’t mean you’ll say ‘yes’ to everything they ask from you. At the same time, you don’t want to always say ‘no’ and be seen as not collaborative. In your position, you are expected to use good judgment based on the situation.


• Contribute to a stress-free and fun Social@Ogilvy Singapore culture. The team is composed mostly of millennials who require a certain leadership style to retain and grow. We strive to have work-life balance. You are expected to be strict when needed to get compliance on policies. We know when to laugh at ourselves or when to take each other seriously. We are sociable beings and open communication and looking after each other are key to the success of our team.
