Midweight Strategist (1 year maternity cover)

Location: Bristol

Salary: £32-37k, dependent on experience


For the last 18 years, Halo has been an agency with brand strategy at its heart. Over the last few years, we have been building our strategy team. As part of this team building, we have a role for someone to come in as maternity cover and work with us for a year. You’ll be filling some big strategy shoes, so we’ll need you to have a few years of experience working in brand strategy under your belt.


Who you are:


In terms of the role, we are looking for a strategist who is passionate about the power of brand. Someone who understands what brand can help a business achieve, but who is also aware of its limitations. Some of the things we will be looking for are:


  • An ability to dig into the backgrounds of our clients, researching both the business and the context within which they have to perform. 
  • Primary and secondary research is key to the role, so having a good handle on both of these will be great. 
  • A skill for sifting through the research and identifying the things that might matter in developing a brand. We aren’t demanding you're full of insights, but we are looking for someone who is insightful. 
  • The ability to turn what you find from your research into a strategy that can power the future of a brand and business. 
  • Creating presentations that shape a compelling narrative, setting out a platform which defines ways we are going to develop the brand through guiding principles and practical actions. 
  • Craft marketing plans that act as the basis for all activity of the brand going forward. 
  • Knowledge of how to bring a brand to market would be advantageous.


For us, strategy gives direction but how it becomes real is equally as important. As such, you will be involved with briefing our designers, digital team, or anyone else we feel is required to bring the brand to life.


Who we are:


Halo is a brand-first, strategic and creative agency, partnering with household names and challenger brands. Based in Bristol but working with global FMCG giants, world famous music events and artists, and businesses disrupting the establishment in a huge range of categories, there’s never a dull moment in the Halo studio.


As a brand-first agency, we believe that we have some great strategic minds here at Halo. We want someone who not only wants to work here but who wants to learn from us, as we will also be learning from you. We expect this year to be one where we can all pick up some new skills and knowledge from each other, and have a great time doing so.


Making brands louder than love!


Culture & Diversity:


We strive to create an environment where our employees feel comfortable bringing their real selves to work. We welcome the unique contributions that you can bring in terms of education, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, colour, religion, disability, or sexual orientation and beliefs. Difference is interesting, diversity is strength. Come and be you, with us.
