Senior Manager, Strategy

OVERVIEW

In this full-time role, you’ll work alongside Integral’s leadership, colleagues and consultants to build a better business, as well as contribute significantly to client-facing work, focused on employee activation. 

THE WORK

As a Senior Manager on our Strategy team, you’ll partner with peers from both Creative and Client Experience to:

Do: Client Work

  • Gain a deep understanding of our clients’ employee population, brand and business goals by developing and leading the strategic discovery process.
  • Collaborate on research efforts, strategy development and content creation for Integral and client engagements.
  • Supervise and/or execute stakeholder management on client-facing projects of all kinds, including communications research, presentations, data analysis, strategy development and execution, design development, etc.
  • Manage and collaborate with Integral teammates on multiple streams of work, ensuring work gets out the door on time and to a high quality standard. 

Sell: Business Development

  • Identify business opportunities within our current client accounts by listening for need, proactively ideating solutions, and developing appropriate proposals and scopes of work.
  • Manage the development of project proposals, timelines and scopes of work
  • Supervise the design strategy and development of business proposals, case studies, and pitches for prospective clients. 
  • Seek out and capitalize on opportunities to publicly advocate for Integral in a manner that supports and furthers the company’s position as thought leaders within the employee experience space.

Grow: Integral’s own culture and operations

  • Contribute to, evolve, and grow Integral’s library of proprietary processes and frameworks. 
  • Equip teammates (and clients) with suitable frameworks or structural models to draw from in order to gain scale, serve clients efficiently and develop Integral’s own talent.
  • Enact our core values every day in the work you do for clients, our business, and with our team.
  • Represent Integral publicly by advocating for our brand and sharing our insights with the broader professional community with the intent to attract both commercial opportunities and talent.
  • Input on and provide feedback around Integral’s creative strategy, tools and approach.
  • Supervise marketing and brand efforts such as expanding our marketing initiatives and social media presence. 

SKILLS, EXPERIENCE + KNOWLEDGE

  • Six-to-eight years experience leading strategic teams and initiatives, preferably within a creative agency or major brand.
  • Expert-level creative capacity for developing strategic initiatives and novel solutions to complex problems.
  • Creative experience (design & brand certifications, experience managing designers & design process etc) is a huge plus.
  • Deep knowledge of consulting approaches and quality-control. You’re curious about or familiar with equity-centered design thinking and Agile.
  • Familiar with digital communications and marketing — from the basics of publishing websites and writing for mobile to searching social media for insights and influence. (No need to be a coder, though).
  • Excellent organizational skills. You eagerly optimize how you do things and explore new approaches. The idea of a messy closet gets you excited — especially when it’s not yours and you can fix it. 
  • Self-awareness. Knowing yourself ensures that your team can be the best they can be. Be able to clearly communicate ideas, limitations and needs for support.
  • Conflict management. Be comfortable understanding a roadblock, confront any tensions involved and working with those involved to understand and co-construct a resolution.
  • A bachelor’s degree in something that involves creative, critical thinking, writing/content, or human interaction with machines, such as Design, Communications, Psychology, Media, Sociology, Anthropology, etc.
