Senior Conceptual
Creative - Activations

Hello, we’re Impero.

We’re an independent, award-winning, creative agency.

We work with high profile, global brands such as, The Glenlivet, Havana Club & Chivas, Corona, Budweiser, Mikes Seltzer, Nature Valley, Ugg, Unicef, Danone, and a bunch of others.

We’re pretty good at what we do. In 2018 we won five Agency of The Year(s) including The Drum DADI Agency of the Year. We were also shortlisted as Campaign Independent Agency of the Year. And, this year made it onto the Campaign Mag 100 best places to work.

Next we have our sights set on a D&AD and/or Cannes Lion.

There’s about 30 of us (not including the dogs) — but that number grows all the time because we’re still young, ambitious and do great work.

We’re also 70% female with a 50/50 gender split on the senior team. We proudly have 100% pay parity, and it kind of annoys us that we even have to mention that as something that’s unique within this industry.

We gladly do things differently. We’re super ambitious, brutally honest and always deliver.

We don’t really like the ‘Old Guard’ of advertising. And, working here is hell of a lot of fun.

This is a growing agency, so we’re looking for a Senior Creative who wants to be part of and help drive that growth.

The role:

As a Conceptual Creative within the creative team, you will be an inspiring force for creative work across our shopper marketing client base, new business pitches and internal projects.

This will include:

  • Concepting and developing creative ideas for BTL/TTL campaigns, often with an emphasis on retail, shopper, branding, packaging, digital, social and experiential.
  • Leading creative on pitches and being able to present your work in an clear and engaging manner
  • Having plenty of initiative
  • Helping to visualise creative ideas with scamps, moodboards, mock-ups and slick decks
  • Being creatively flexible, you can pick up some copy or work closely with a copywriter as part of a team
  • Have knowledge of the FMCG Marketing world
  • Eager to understand your client’s brand, marketing strategies and industry
  • Building and maintaining positive relationships with existing clients and being able to promote Impero to prospective clients at new business opportunities/events.
  • Working closely with other teams such as Strategy and Design to develop ideas
  • Mentoring and assisting more junior members of the creative team
The type of people we want to meet:

Above all, you'll embody our core values of being brutally honest, doggedly determined, always on point and audaciously ambitious.

You will have a hunger to create bold, award-winning ideas, create exceptional work for your clients and be part of our amazing team. More so than this, you will have a willingness to learn things outside your experience and pick up skills quickly.

You will live and breathe great work. You will be energetic, fun to work with and always positive.

  • Minimum 5-7 years experience working within a Creative role
  • Have knowledge of the FMCG Marketing world
  • Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc.)
  • Confident in Keynote
  • A breadth of creative knowledge with the ability to produce useful visual references and predict creative trends
  • A team player who cares about the growth and development of the agency
What else:

The creative team is small, but ambitious, talented and multi-disciplined. Everyone is an ideas person, but each has their own specialism, from content creation, to art direction and copywriting.

We want to build on this team with sharp-minded people who want to make a name for themselves and the agency by creating work that’s conceptually smart, relevant and truly interesting or entertaining. Work that makes people from outside the agency think “I wish I’d done that.”

The perks of working at The Mighty Impero include:
  • Being part of something special — this is an exciting growing agency with no board of directors, or shareholders to report to.
  • Flexible working.
  • The ability to stamp your mark on an organisation – and not just be a cog in the machine.
  • Free snacks and coffee (not when you’re working from home, obvs)
  • Regular breakfasts with the whole team (less regular in the age of Covid).
  • Seasonal company parties.
  • Annual personal development plan and training budget for your own growth.
  • The love of seven rotating office dogs.
  • A ‘yes work’s important, but let’s not get too serious’ vibe.
  • A distinct lack of bureaucracy or politics.
  • Ownership of your own projects whilst enjoying an inclusive environment.
  • Beer, Gin, Rum, Cognac, Whiskey, Snacks. (Working with our clients has added perks).

If you feel this is the role for you, please get in touch via with Conceptual Creative as the subject line. Don’t forget to include your salary expectations.
We are lucky enough to receive so many amazing applications that we can't respond to everyone.
