Senior Strategist

London, England, United Kingdom


About us

Freemavens uses data to develop growth strategies for some of the world’s best-known brands. A mix of analytics, data science, brand strategy, and big helpings of intuition, empathy, and creativity allows us to help our clients be, do & say more of what people want. Founded in 2013 and acquired by the Be Heard Partnership in 2017, we’re a young and growing company, and we’re truly international! From our office in London we’ve carried out more than 500 projects for Unilever, Chanel, Coca-Cola, Diageo, GSK, Mondelēz International and others in over 50 markets – all without a single translator. Most of our analysts and strategists are bilingual, allowing us to not just understand language from real people, but also the local nuances of culture.


About the role

Just like our other teams, the Freemavens strategy team is growing, and we’re looking for a talented senior strategist to work alongside our Chief Strategy Officer to take it to the next level.

As a Senior Strategist you will be responsible for delivering some of our larger projects and building relationships with senior clients as a trusted advisor in all things product, brand, comms and innovation strategy. You will also be involved in projects of future growth, with an increasing number of new business opportunities working with our sister agencies in the Be Heard Group (across digital media, integrated creative, and digital product design and build).

On a per-project basis, you will have the support of analysts (specialising in the analysis of a variety of data sets), junior strategists/storytellers (tasked with tying together the human story behind the data into a compelling narrative with recommendations) and if needed, data scientists (who bring statistical-thinking and the ability to develop new approaches or capabilities).

All of your experiences as a Senior Strategist at Freemavens will expose you to a variety of commercial challenges and industries. These will ultimately prepare you for the potential transition to a role as Strategy Director as we continue to grow.

About you

Ideally you’ll have the following skills…

You’ll enjoy it here if you...


We offer all our employees free fruit and a selection of breakfast food (on top of the regular teas and coffees that is).

Once the week is done, you can enjoy themed Friday treats with some nibbles and drinks on the company. Each week different people take turn coming up with the theme and ordering everything. Every quarter we get everyone to vote for their favourite night and the winners get a prize!

Monthly interactive workshops in the office on different topics in the business. This can range from strategy workshops to data viz workshops. Anything that can help us on our day to day.

Bi-weekly learning lunches where people get to share their knowledge and learn from others. This does not have to be related to work. In the past, we’ve had lunch and learn on Ayurveda or Gaming.

You can find plenty of amazing bars and restaurants minutes away from the office.
