Job Title: Senior Strategist

ABOUT THE COMPANY

B2B has the potential to be electrifying. But the industry is paralysed by a culture of conservatism.  It’s time for change. It’s time to make B2B marketing visceral.

 We’re on a mission to make it happen! 

On the back of our new proposition to ‘provoke the truth for progressive B2B brands’, alan. is in a period of fast growth. The agency has doubled in size in the past year – whilst adding more huge logos to our already impressive client roster. alan. is a seriously exciting place to be right now.

 We’re seeking energetic, left field thinkers to join us on our journey. We want people who always ask ‘what if’; opinionated individuals who tell it like it is; and above all else, people with an innate desire to smash the status quo.

alan. agency provides digital-first, insight-led strategic creative marketing solutions for B2B clients including AWS, Mastercard, SAP, Google, Grant Thornton and KPMG. We are a subsidiary of the Raconteur Group and are independent and privately owned.
