Position Summary

Brado Brand Activation strategists are at the epicenter of every stage of the strategic process – from facilitating client workshop, to developing strategies and plans that inspires our clients and laying out the communication needs to meet our client’s business objectives.

Strategists are on the front lines of client facing work and must quickly gain their confidence and build rapport. It should be clear to our clients that you are a strategic thinker and an expert in the nuances of marketing/communications. You must be able to translate information, data and observations into insightful, focused recommendations on how to craft breakthrough strategies, positioning and communications.

While Strategists often work in partnership with each other, you will sometimes be asked to represent Brado on your own. Thus, everything you do must embody our core purpose of “inspiring people” and separating Brado from all other agencies and consultants. This means you must be exceptional in the way you engage people.

The vast majority of our work is healthcare related. We are looking for people that are excited about transforming healthcare for both providers and patients. To that end, B2B experience is a must. Healthcare B2B ideal.

Beyond being a gifted strategic thinker, you must be an excellent writer. At Brado that means the ability to:

1. Identify the strategy.
2. Determine the best positioning.
3. Create and craft the roll out plan for the strategy.
4. Compellingly present to the client.
