Provocation (Snr) Manager – Full Time

We’re looking for a strategic fire-starter who wants to help create extraordinary impact

We’re looking for an experienced strategist to join our busy Strategy team which we call Provocation. As our department naming suggests we’re looking for someone who knows how to uncover the kernel of potential that challenge the status quo and ignites imaginations.

You are experienced and confident in working with clients to develop brave and extraordinary outcomes. You know your way around all aspects of brand strategy, from brand definition to brand architecture. And you have experience in the more technical aspects of things, from developing value propositions to creating portfolio strategies. You’re a natural leader and confident collaborator - unlocking brilliant ideas through energising workshop facilitation or working more independently.

But beyond this, you have a passion for brands, have an awareness and love of the world around you, are brilliantly articulate, and are excited by the opportunities that creative problem solving can bring to deliver extraordinary impact.

Why Born Ugly exists

At Born Ugly, we want our work to improve the experiences and lives of everyone who feels its impact. It should be remarkable, always.

We believe in

  • Forging lasting relationships with each other and our clients
  • Pursuing excellence, leaving no stone unturned to deliver wow
  • Creating impact, through thought provoking, heart-pounding and break-through creative thinking

Who we want to work with

We want to work with talented individuals who think differently and who want to make a difference rather than just do a job.
