Creative Director

Jungle Creations are a leading media house for the social age, focused solely on delivering high-quality content. What started out as a Facebook page has evolved to a multi-platform media business which creates viral video content for some of the biggest brands in the world such as McDonalds, Oreo, Disney, Bailey’s and many more.

  • Multi-platform media company
  • An audience of over 100 million across social media
  • Generates over 5 billion video views
  • 20 million unique visitors to their websites each month
  • 1st most viewed media property on Facebook globally
  • Raised £3m in series A funding
  • What we’re after

We’ve got big plans.

We’ve already built the world’s most viewed company on social media (5.5bn video views a month).

We now want to build the world’s best creative agency. An agency that really understands how brands should act to be culturally relevant.

We’ve got brilliant foundations for the agency having picked up a Cannes Lions last year for our YOTI campaign. However we need to take things to the next level. Yes, we want to develop ideas that live on our channels. But we also want to develop ideas that can live anywhere. The ambition for the brands we work with is to make sure they have some kind of dent on culture.

Think Volvo ‘Greatest Interception’. The Swedish Number. Project 84 for CALM. Louise Delage and Addict Aide. In truth, Nike LDNR.

What do all of these campaigns have in common? They’re big ideas. Ideas that people talk about. Ideas that know their audience. Ideas that live in the right place.

It’s simple really, we need:

  • Someone who knows big ideas.
  • Someone who has ambitions to make work that impacts culture.
  • Someone who will help launch and run a new model creative agency.
  • Someone who wants to work with a bunch of hugely ambitious people.
  • Someone who realises there’s a better and different way to do things.

The details of the job

All that said, social video has remained at the forefront of our commercial offering, so we’re now looking to expand beyond this and become a full service creative agency. To help us achieve this goal, we’re looking for a Creative Director of the new agency, who not only has experience running a creative department, but is looking to make their mark by building a creative offering in their own vision.

There are already creative teams in place, so it would be working closely with them to evolve the creative output and develop ideas that work outside of our own channels. As well as bringing in your own talent to help grow the team.

Ideally you’d have an enviable blend of creative ingenuity, strategic nouse and a friendly face for clients.

You’ll be responsible for

  • Helping build out the creative teams to ensure we’re developing big ideas as well as the more business as usual creative work
  • Helping build out a wider range of assets that we can offer clients within these campaigns (i.e. events, OOH, print etc), ensuring these are being effectively communicated and sold in to clients
  • Ensuring our assets live across multiple platforms
  • Ensuring we have the capabilities to fulfil these new 360 campaigns
  • Ensuring that once clients/campaigns are signed off, execution is completed to the highest standard
  • Establishing the agency as one of the best new creative agencies in London

Skills and experience required:

  • Minimum of eight years experience in a creative agency
  • Someone who has a high level of understanding and experience running a creative department
  • Strong understanding and experience in social media marketing, influencer marketing, branded content and performance marketing
  • Ability to develop and bring new creative offerings to market
  • Excellent presentation skills for meetings with senior clients

Perks:

Our East London office can offer a work environment unrivalled in the world of business. We’ve got a 35-person amphitheatre, Ping-Pong, breakout area, kitchen-studio, foosball table, bar and a fun and super talented team. There’s also yoga, 5v5 football, a netball team and a masseuse who comes in once a month.
