Associate Strategy Director, Creative Strategy's Mission:

Hi. We’re Jam3, a design and experience agency. We help modern brands tell their stories, launch their products and design new customer experiences in digital, and beyond.

Our team brings folks together from across disciplines and around the world. This collaborative approach and global perspective allows us to create truly relevant, innovative and purposeful designs. We don’t just believe ideas can come from anywhere - we practice it. Our teams are multi-disciplinary, involving Strategy, Creative, User Experience Design and Production all under one roof (four roofs, actually). This amazing fusion of talent lets us make things we could never make alone.

Innovating all day makes us pretty fun people to work with too. We’re curious about new ideas, we know how to make them happen, and we’re always there to support each other throughout the process. If you like making good things even better, you’ll fit right in.

As our new Associate Strategy Director, you will lead the development of business, brand and audience insights; and use these to plan and define campaign, channel, and brand strategies, and deliver engaging and immersive experiences for one of our key clients operating in the sports and lifestyle sector.
