The Creative Director role at HarrimanSteel BV is a balance between creative leadership, design engine and directorial management. Working under both ECD’s, your role will see you primarily lead the Amsterdam creatives, to challenge the team to create the best results, to strive for innovation, craft and to think strategically about how their work can be effective in the real world.
You’re passionate about culture and the lifestyle brands we work with and you’ll understand how to change your shoes from Nike to TOMS, depending on the client - you’ll be able to speak their language, understand their unique objectives and oversee the creation of work that blends seamlessly with the brand - whilst pushing the dial.
You will have a natural aptitude to thinking about how brands land themselves within culture, demonstrating excellent creative instincts, and an instinctive understanding of marketing and communications strategy (even if not the specific science). You will seek to push the boundaries of each project you undertake to achieve the highest creative marketing standards.
You will have 8-10 years experience within a creative studio, with exceptional client communication skills, team leadership experience and passion for detail and craft in all creative that is generated. You will be expected to attend client meetings, co- author and deliver compelling presentations that sell the vision, and oversee the team in delivering against this.
In addition, you will be responsible, alongside the management team, for further defining and curating a unique voice and point of view for HarrimanSteel in Amsterdam.
We believe the role is an exciting opportunity for the right person to take up the mantle and further shape our growing business in Amsterdam. You’ll value and champion our internal culture, whilst not taking your eye off the prize - the opportunity to become the leading brand experience agency in Amsterdam.
