About the Team
At Mindshare we provide answers to business challenges by creating the most innovative and effective media solutions possible.
We do this by understanding the clients challenge, engaging the right audiences by creating the right connections and content, wrapped in measurement frameworks that demonstrate success.
The Connections Planning team plays a crucial role in designing the audiences, connections, content and measurement that deliver the most innovative and effective solutions to clients.
To do this requires a team of people with a high degree of knowledge of the UK media market and a deep understanding of the role of technology in driving opportunities to target audiences, it’s impact on the connections and content that will engage people, and how media can be measured and optimised.
Members of the team understand consumer trends and are able to translate insights and strategic direction into actionable media solutions.
They interact with a wide range of other teams including Intelligence and Strategic Planning, the specialist channel teams that execute the media, and the Live Planning team that optimises across all media channels.
Do you want to advance your career by working on an exciting and progressive account, looking after some of the best-known UK brands?
If so, this is the role for you! You will be working on the Unilever account, which is one of UK’s biggest advertisers. Mindshare are in a very privileged position as Unilever’s lead agency, holding a broad and deep relationship that we see Connection Planners being pivotal to.
We work on over 40 different brands withing the Unilever portfolio across food, homecare and beauty & personal care categories.
Both Unilever and Mindshare embrace agile, collaborative working, which means we are essentially an extension of Unilever’s marketing team.
You’ll spend some of your time at our offices in London and some of your time working within the client’s Leatherhead offices (currently of course the teams are all working remotely).
In terms of your day to day, the bulk of your time will be spent on planning exciting, award-winning campaigns as well as working with channel specialists to make those plans a reality.
This involves everything from defining the approach to audience, designing the connections plan across all relevant touchpoints as well as working on content creation and measurement.
You would be responsible for a handful of brands within the broader Unilever portfolio.
