Success will be an extension of the IHA's remit over time, taking on higher-profile briefs as we prove our capability to the business. The right candidate will be up for that challenge and will give as much love to digital retail promotions and always-on social content as to above the line advertising.

To achieve this, be proactive at all times: bring energy, share ideas and help make this a team that talented people want to be a part of.

Be accomplished in presenting the work to demonstrate why it is right and practical to execute. And be proactive and fully accountable for your deliverables and deadlines.
  • Collaborate with the IHA team, its internal customers and external partners. Build strong relationships with the rest of the IHA team, as well as with external agency partners, showing respect for the contribution of each discipline and each individual. Develop positive relationships with marketing and other roles that brief the IHA. You will take direction well, but also be passionate about pushing boundaries in the work and be prepared to voice an opinion. It is important to be a good communicator who can express their needs clearly.
  • Help the In-House Agency run efficiently and effectively Support agreed ways of working, taking direction as appropriate, to work efficiently and effectively. Make good use of systems, tools and processes designed to help you achieve this. Demonstrate respect for all functions of the IHA and show due regard for timelines, budgets and other constraints inherent in the brief.
