Senior B2B Planner required

London, West End
Subject to experience + benefits
Join Earnest

Earnest began life in 2009 with a mission to chase out the humdrum in B2B marketing.

As an independent, creative agency, doing what we do has never been about settling for okay. It’s all about thinking harder and more creatively to develop campaigns and content that can’t be ignored. Engaging our audience's hearts and minds. Helping our clients reap the rewards.

It’s been so good, so far – we’ve built a talented team, picked up a surprising number of awards, and are now in the fortunate position of being able to count Vodafone, Mastercard, ADP, Gumtree and WeWork among our clients.

We're on the lookout for a planning supremo to come join our merry band

Someone who cares as much as we do about always delivering the best possible response to sticky client briefs.

Someone with a natural curiosity about the world, and about how and why people behave the way they do.


What you’ll be doing and how you'll be doing it

Advising clients on their marketing strategy
_ Working to understand the client’s business and market context
_ Providing expert guidance on the programmes of activity needed to best meet business and marketing objectives
_ Understanding operational implications to make recommendations on technology, people and processes required
_ Advising clients on budget requirements and ROI measures

Building high performance, fully integrated campaigns
_ Helping to formulate high performance campaigns that directly meet the client’s brief
_ Hosting workshops and one-to-one interviews with internal and external audiences to gather insight
_ Briefing third-party research agencies
_ Establishing a messaging framework for each audience (if not already in place)
_ Briefing our creatives to build high impact campaign concepts that can be readily applied through the line
_ Thinking laterally about the inbound and outbound tactics required to best engage audiences across the buying cycle
_ Harnessing these tactics as part of an integrated campaign plan
_ Setting in place campaign dashboards to measure and optimise performance

Planning effective content marketing programmes
_ Formulating fully fit-for-purpose content marketing strategies for our clients
_ Building audience profiles using personas
_ Content planning – determining appropriate content assets and themes
_ Working closely with our creatives to develop highly engaging content
_ Establishing a content distribution strategy – making best use of search, social, web, mobile and direct channels
_ Planning how leads will be managed and nurtured
_ Using marketing automation software to underpin lead capture and nurturing (you’ll ideally have some experience of using Hubspot or similar)
_ Managing client reporting – making recommendations to inform improvements and future strategy

Developing our business – and keeping Earnest at the forefront
_ Providing proactive thinking and support in the development of new and existing business opportunities
_ Actively contributing to pitches – from helping write the response to brief through to the final pitch presentation
_ Supporting Earnest’s own marketing programmes – including supporting our content marketing and social media strategy – and building our own position as an industry thought-leader
_ Working collaboratively with our Earnest Labs team to investigate how new technologies can be applied in progressive ways to meet the current and future needs of our clients


Who you are

You’ll be comfortable immersing yourself in new clients, industries and technologies, getting under the skin of what matters and inspiring our creatives with great insights.

You’ll know how to craft clear value propositions and messaging – that cuts through complexity and builds a differentiated position. You’ll also have a way with clients – able to build persuasive and compelling plans, with a strong digital edge.

Importantly, you’ll want to work in a vibrant environment with a bunch of people who like to laugh while they graft.

Business-to-business experience is a must – ideally at least 3-4 years – along with a track record of successfully planning fully integrated campaigns that get results.

In return, as well as a great benefits package – that includes healthcare and contributory pension, you’ll be given opportunities to grow your career and develop your skills, as far as you want to go.

We're an agency on a mission to chase the humdrum out of B2B marketing.

Since 2009, we’ve been plying our trade with a genuine passion for combining insight and creativity to deliver outstanding results for our ever-expanding client base.

It’s been so good, so far – we’ve built a talented team, picked up a surprising number of awards, and are now in the fortunate position of being able to count Vodafone, Mastercard and Gumtree among our clients.

We need a freelance planning maestro to come and help us with a deluge of new work that's coming in.


What you’ll be up to

  • Insight gathering – getting under the skin of the client, their market and customer needs via research, workshops and interviews
  • Developing compelling stories and messages that position the client’s offerings in a clear and compelling way
  • Formulating high performance, integrated campaign plans – combining the right mix of inbound and outbound tactics, while thinking digital-first
  • Content marketing – from advising clients on the right strategy, building personas, establishing key themes and formats to distribution
  • Working closely with our creatives – delivering the laser sharp insights that will inspire their thinking
  • Measuring and reporting – with a clear view on what’s working and why, to demonstrate the value and optimise the performance of our campaigns

About you

We’d like you to be as curious as we are about everything, have a good head for business, and an even better heart for what really makes people tick. B2B experience is a must, particularly in the tech and telco spaces. Ideally, you’ll have 3+ years experience under your belt.

You’ll be a durable strategist who’s at their best when wrestling with a tricky brief – someone who can ask all the right questions and get to the heart of the matter to build clear and compelling propositions, and turn the intangible into something altogether more meaningful. You’ll be well versed in planning campaigns, able to carefully select the right channels to reach and engage audiences, and ensure they deliver the goods commercially for our clients.

Most of all, we want someone with a nimble mind that can help Earnest continue to set the pace and wow clients.

Interested? Send us your CV along with 100 words on why you think you’re up for the challenge.
