Play with your words. Unlock solutions. Excite clients with the possibilities.
As a Senior Manager on the Verbal Identity team at Landor, youll need three main qualities: verbal creativity, rigorous logic & inspiring presentation skills. Is this you?
Landor builds some of the worlds most agile brands - brands that thrive on change. We design for the future, in ways that make sense right now. Were strategic experts & creative explorers committed to solving complex challenges. With smart tools & global resources, we examine the implications of every brand choice; create new experiences & open doors to opportunity for our clients.
What were looking for
You have at least 4 years of relevant experience in branding or advertising & a deep interest in language. At Landor, youll work on all things verbalnaming, nomenclature, messaging strategy, brand voice, taglines, content development, brand stories, manifestos, positioning statements & more. We need someone who can write in many voices for different types of clients, & pick apart how words are working strategically. But youre not the stereotypical tortured writer: you like collaborating with multidisciplinary teams, are commercially savvy, & can take all your nerdy word love & channel it into developing real-world solutions.
At the Senior Manager level, youre at the point in your career where, with support from the rest of the verbal identity team, youre ready to walk clients through flawlessly-constructed presentations with crystal-clear argumentation & world-class creative options. Expect to work seamlessly across B2B & B2C & be equally psyched about naming a new snack bar, creating tone of voice for a bank, or developing messaging for business process outsourcing.
For us, Verbal identity is more than a snappy headline or clever turn of phrase. Its thinking strategically about how a brand speaks, every time it opens its mouth, & creating tools for clients that help them execute verbal strategies in flexible ways across large organizations.
In a nutshell:
- At least 4+ years of relevant experience in branding or advertising
- Track record of versatile writing
- Strong presentation skills, from creating a polished PowerPoint presentation to explaining creative rationale to clients
- Digitally shrewd (youve got opinions on new technology, & know how to use it)
- Foreign languages a plus
Interested? Submit a resume, cover letter, & a few writing samples that show your creative abilities & analytic rigor. Be sure to detail your specific experience around strategy, messaging, naming, building brand voice, content strategy & execution, nomenclature system development, & brand stories/manifestos. And let us know how your previous client experience has prepared you to hit the ground running for these kinds of clients.
