4/Develop a connected media idea & experience

Can develop fully integrated, and holistic creative media idea collaborating with agency and media partners. Can demonstrate how the idea works as a connected experience.

5/Construct a measurement framework

Able to define a measurement framework translating business objectives into KPI’s and media metrics. Including a test and learn approach, detailing hypotheses to be tested throughout the year, and potential implications for the results of such tests.

As well as leading the strategy across some of our most high profile clients we will give you the time to contribute to the development of the team and the evolution of the strategy proposition at Mindshare.
