Growth Director

Jobs

As a growing business with a broad client base, we need a Growth Director with the energy and know-how to really supercharge our efforts.

Working directly with the Partners and Directors at &us, you would play a critical role in the growth of the business, in particular how we nurture win-win Partnerships from the very first interaction, and create a high impact client experience through our work.  You’ll oversee our Marketing team, and play a crucial role in nurturing our brand awareness and reputation through our marketing efforts.

Everyone at &us contributes to growth, so you’ll be part of a big team effort. There’ll be lots of big thinking but also a fair amount of getting into the nitty gritty. We need someone with passion: a quick-thinker, excellent stakeholder manager and powerful storyteller.

This is a permanent role, based in the UK, with the flexibility to work from home on a regular basis, and opportunities to travel in the course of work.

  • 10+  years experience in developing new business for an agency/consultancy
  • Passionate about the world of transformation and innovation
