Senior Planner

Our aim with every piece of work that we do is to initiate and drive Helpful Change. It’s our motto and we live and breathe it. We’re lucky enough to be able to work each day on strategies, campaigns and tactical execution of work that makes a difference in Patients’ and Carers’ lives, and helps Healthcare Professionals make well-informed treatment decisions.

We’re looking for a Senior Planner who is able to draw on their experience working at a franchise level as well as with single brands. You will apply your advanced strategic knowledge and inquisitive nature to produce the overarching strategy for your client. You will work to lead your team to present solutions that are relevant, distinctive and of high quality, adding significant value to projects. You will work closely with the Accounts and Creative teams within your agency to build strong client relationships, demonstrating an advanced ability in presenting your ideas and looking for opportunities to bolster profitability. You will be a mentor to all Planners in your team, helping them to reach their potential.

You’ll also be digital savvy – we’re looking for someone who is engaged in social media themselves. Because we’re not just looking to drive branded activity, we’re looking for someone who can generate ideas that work around the brand – what services or products could our target audience benefit from? What really matters to them?

This role brings with it opportunities to travel and we expect that you’ll have some experience of working on pan-European or global accounts already. When you’re with clients, you’ll be drawing on your previous experience and indeed the associated confidence and relationship building abilities that you’ve honed already. We like for our clients to meet our experts, so you can expect to work in this scenario with Creatives and technical professionals

Senior Front End Developer

We have a fantastic new opportunity for a Senior Front End Developer to join our Manchester office.

In this Developer role you should reflect on your experience and be solutions focused – always keeping the end user in mind. You should have an advanced knowledge of code and be continuously developing your skills through training, research and collaboration with your peers. You should use your experience to guide projects and to develop your team to produce exceptional work for the client across a range of projects, taking overall responsibility for the work they produce. You should work with the Digital Director (DD) to develop the company’s Development offering – collaborating to add significant value.

You will be able to show us a strong portfolio of work which portrays your individuality, technical knowledge and coding skills – you should be able to clearly demonstrate strong capability in all aspects of Front End Development; across HTML(5), CSS and JavaScript/JQuery. You’ll also have a strong working knowledge of build stacks, including Node.js, Gulp, SASS and their relevant frameworks. Knowledge of CMS packages such as WordPress and Expression Engine will also be an advantage, as will your understanding of QA processes – you’ll need to be confident in implementing cross-browser and JavaScript testing as necessary.

In time, the team will grow and you’ll need to develop your management skills and be able to act as a mentor and actively bring on more junior team members. This is something that we’d like you to be open to, but we’ll help you to develop the associated skill set if you haven’t had the opportunity to do this already.
