You'll also help evolve the thinking and tools of the Insight & Strategy Group: Disruption (the driving philosophy of all the TBWA\ Group companies), strategic frameworks, research methods, shopper understanding, and original thinking.

On top of this, you will:

•   Spend a lot of time with clients – you will serve as a senior-level contact and lead on individual client businesses and brands.

•   Know what’s going on – you will demonstrate a solid grasp of current industry dynamics and be able to provide agency perspective on their impact, influence, and implications for client or agency health.

•   Speak with authority – you’re able to clearly articulate a strategic vision in a confident and persuasive manner to clients and teams, and connect the vision to business imperatives and measures.

•   Have vision – you can chart a course and paint a picture for projects, brands, and the agency.

•   Lead – you'll raise the bar for Integer and its clients. You'll also identify unmet opportunities and knowledge gaps and figure out how we can fill them.

•   Innovate your thinking – you will develop, test, and evolve your hypotheses about a wide variety of marketing challenges.

•   Grow – you'll develop professionally, and also help grow the role of Insight & Strategy with clients, the Denver agency, The Integer Network and the wider TBWA world.

•   Role up your sleeves – You are prone to action, like to make stuff, and would rather try something than either overthink it or expect to pawn it off.

•   Management and Supervisory experience

•   Huge passion for what communication and creativity can achieve in the world

•   Strong interest in shopping and its role in culture

•   Knowing a good idea when you see it as well as how to nurture it and explain it

•   Immense passion for change and the drive to create it
