Key responsibilities

We have a fantastic opportunity for a planner to join our strategy team, based in Edinburgh. The role provides an exciting challenge: can you apply your expertise, skills, instincts and curiosity to develop this team within LEWIS? It's a brand-new role, so you have the chance to shape the way in which we bring this offering into our business and to our clients.

If you are a creative and strategic thinker that has their finger on the pulse of customer and client trends with a natural ability to create a focused strategy for projects, then we want to talk to you.

You will develop strategic plans for existing client projects as well as across pitches and proposals. You should be able to inspire, innovate and shape the creative strategy across our clients, covering sectors such as the arts, utilities, finance and charities. As a strategic thinker, your ability to get to the root of, and solve, problems will be second to none.

Project and campaign strategy, as well as content and communications planning, will be the main focus of the role, but it is certainly not limited to these! You will work closely with our account management, creative and technical teams to inspire and deliver the best solution for our clients using insights, data and trends to communicate and develop briefs.
