We’re looking for a strategist who can think, feel and do.

You’ll work right across our business, from discovery to delivery on projects that span insight, strategy and design for the world’s biggest brands.

Your typical day might include:

• Discovering insights that inspire and provoke
• Defining the strategic direction of global brands and products
• Developing propositions, principles and brand philosophies
• Delivering presentations that convince and compel

Who we’d like to find

Since 2004, we’ve grown from only four to over a hundred by finding the right people – people that don’t only slot right in to our studio culture, but bring something incredible to it.

We’re looking for someone who:

• Is great at simplifying, structuring and explaining
• Can bridge the gap between strategic thinking and creative doing
• Has strong written skills and is a confident and concise presenter
• Has a sharp eye for evaluating creative work
• Loves working hand in hand with other creative disciplines
• Is passionate about current trends and contemporary culture
• Can explain design to non-designers
• Is looking for a midweight Strategy role

Who we are

Forpeople is a multi-disciplinary creative agency, making distinctly human products and experiences for some of the world’s most interesting and innovative companies - including Adidas, British Airways, Coca-Cola, Herman Miller and Intercontinental Hotels Group.

Founded in 2004, today we’re an intensely collaborative group of over a hundred specialists, working together in a remarkable old pickle factory in South London across projects that span industrial design, strategy & insight, interiors, forecasting, user experience and brand communications.

Our work is wide-reaching and ever-changing, yet always anchored by a single, simple focus. People. Because ultimately, if design isn’t for people, then who is it for?

This role requires:

• Previous experience gained in a fast-paced creative agency
• An understanding of the consultancy business model
• Experience contributing creatively to multiple projects
• Experience of client handling
• Knowledge of 2D (Adobe) design software
• Chinese language and cultural knowledge would be hugely beneficial

You’ll stand out if, like us, you:

• Have a thirst for knowledge
• Are creative, optimistic and entrepreneurial
• Are driven to succeed, decisive and can dependably deliver
• Are collaborative, influential and respectful of values

What we offer

People mean the world to us. That includes looking after our own, with things like:

• Global clients and world-class work
• A competitive salary
• A strong bonus and benefits package, reflecting both company and personal performance
• Training, support and personal career development
• A generous company pension
• A unique, inspiring working environment filled with incredible, likeminded people
