  3. Flexible & fun working environment.

MEASURES OF SUCCESS

In three months:

  • Be proficient w/ team’s core suite of tools (Google based).
  • Be capable of managing and delivering team’s core product with minimal guidance from seniors

In six months:

  • Be highly proficient in team’s core suite of tools, as well as GroupM’s proprietary platforms
  • Function as a credible tech-resource to assigned client-servicing teams
  • Be independent (or close to complete independence) in managing and delivering core output

In twelve months:

  • Be able to independently manage and support client-servicing teams
  • Be able to develop strong relationships and top notch rapport with clients
  • Be a credible champion of a branch of application of team’s competencies

Responsibilities of the role: 

  • Be prepared to get involved! The office work is fast-paced and exciting but that means you should be ready to adapt to challenges and have good prioritization skills. 
  • We’re not looking for someone who will just copy and paste work and solutions for new briefs. We’re going through a step change as we move away from just best practice execution but also covering best practice strategic thinking too. 
  • Shy and retiring wallflowers may find the role tricky too as there is much face-to-face time involved in the role, not only presenting to clients but also internally to the rest of the Wavemaker team.
  • We should be ideas led and creativity is crucial.  Owning that one thought, that strategy and that one thing that puts us in the driver’s seat is an important goal for every project we undertake.
