About Highrise

Highrise is a boutique performance marketing agency specialising in Direct-to-Consumer. We partner with some of the newest and most thrilling brands, spanning a multitude of industries. The founding team at Highrise has a proven track record of scaling multiple businesses from ground zero to over £100m+ in annual sales. Cultivating and accelerating brands is ingrained in our DNA.

We are not your typical agency that solely focuses on media buying. While we recognise the significance of platforms like Meta, Google, and TikTok, we don’t see them as isolated solutions. We blend data, platform innovation, tailored ad creative and CRO to fulfil our clients’ business objectives. Highrise embodies the essence of a full-funnel performance marketing agency.

We are a small, growing agency with big ambitions. Our clients’ success is our success, and we consider ourselves true partners in their growth. If you’re seeking a role where the impact of your work is visible every day, where you’re an integral part of the next generation of household name brands, and you get to collaborate with a fantastic team, then Highrise is the place for you.

The role

As the Creative Strategist within our Media Operations team, you’ll be responsible for the creative strategy for our clients. Your role, fuelled by data and insights from our paid media teams and powered by creativity, is to deliver concepts and briefs for creatives that capture attention and drive measurable outcomes. This position is pivotal in shaping the creative narrative part of our client servicing, continuously refining it to match the ever-evolving digital landscape, and inspiring growth through creative performance.

What you will do

Creative Insights & Trends:
Creating assets without data is like driving a car without a steering wheel. You will have a clear perspective on what works and what doesn’t in our client’s creative strategy. You’ll leverage insights from our paid media teams to inform and develop the creative strategy. This will involve reviewing client creative’s insights, proactive competitor and industry research to stay ahead of the curve and on the lookout for the latest social trends.


Creative Strategy (research/ideation/concepting):
You will transform creative data, trends and insights into client-aligned ideations and concepts. With your social savvy eye, you’ll interpret data, trends, and insights into fresh ideas and opportunities. Additional analysis, competitor research, and team brainstorming sessions may be necessary to generate compelling new concepts. You will be instrumental in creating both iterations of successful creatives and new/original concepts.


Creative Pitching:
You’ll articulate and mockup your concepts into a presentation. Working alongside our client services teams, you’ll present these concepts with enthusiasm and expertise, and with the authority and experience to challenge client assumptions and strive for client approval and/or buy-in.


Creative Briefing & QA:
After concept approval, you’ll oversee the creative roadmap and convert concepts into articulate, top-tier creative briefs that are ready for production. You’ll work closely with our creative partners or in-house production teams, conducting thorough QA to ensure creative assets meet the high standards expected before client delivery.

Who you are

To thrive in this role, you will have a strategic mind paired with a creative heart, capable of marrying analytical insights with creativity and innovation:

You have a proven record in creative strategy, whether within a digital marketing agency or in-house at DTC brands.

A visionary and strategic thinker, you excel in transforming client needs into compelling creative concepts that resonate and convert.

Your proficiency in data analysis and performance metrics allows you to turn data into actionable creative insights. You possess an exceptional eye for detail and quality.

Your outstanding communication skills enable you to present and pitch creative concepts with simplicity and conviction, articulating your ideas and influencing client decisions. You excel in both client-facing scenarios and cross-functional team collaborations.

With familiarity with paid social platforms and focus on short-form performance-driven content (particularly Meta and TikTok), you’re fluent in the latest creative trends and best practices.
