Expected behaviours

1. Communication

  • You have a valued opinion and actively contribute to team and client discussions, and do not simply rely on others to take the lead. You’re able to present creative ideas in an engaging and confident manner, and can defend your ideas when appropriate.

2. Planning & Organising

  • You plan specific tasks that are clear and realistic, so you can achieve particular goals/objectives. You never miss deadlines and communicate your progress to others.
  • You are able to organise both yourself and others. You can plan ahead, anticipating any issues or bottlenecks, and take appropriate action in terms of flagging your concerns to senior team members (both in creative and account management).
  • You’re able to follow projects through to completion, and you can respond to unforeseen issues and prioritise accordingly.

3. Creativity

  • You participate in helping to generate original ideas and designs.
  • You challenge and question the norm to see if there’s another way of doing something.
  • You’re able to create and execute new concepts to a high standard based on your understanding of emerging client and market insights.
