About The Role

 
 

As a senior strategist at manifesto, you'll work at the heart of our teams by defining our approach to identifying and solving our clients key problems. Within the strategy practice, you will be responsible for working across the following core capabilities consisting of problem framing, innovation, business design, digital strategy, product & service ownership, and transformation. You will be a leader in defining and driving our strategic approach and ensuring our teams are outcome and value focussed.

At manifesto, we are growing our practice to drive digital transformation and impact for our clients across the charity, not-for-profit, visits, memberships & public sector, through crafting innovative data driven solutions and experiences. For this role, experience working in or with charity & fundraising organisations especially would be preferable.

As part of this growth we are continuing to expand our capabilities, increasing the range of skill sets and depth of experience in the team to build a world enriched by people-powered digital transformation.

We are looking for individuals to join our team with experience and expertise across our capabilities - we know that our people can be highly skilled deep specialists but can equally be multi-skilled individuals who provide skill sets that cover two or more of our capabilities. If either of these sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you!

 
Responsibilities
 

As a Senior Digital Strategist within manifesto you will own and lead big digital partnerships and work as part of a cross-functional agile team alongside other experts in technology, user experience, brand, creative and delivery, often on concurrent projects, to:

  • Lead the problem-solving charge, helping to connect the dots between the needs, wants, and desires of audiences and those often-elusive organisation, brand, and marketing goals.
  • Canvas and model product and service solutions that meet our client goals and objectives
  • Craft the project or product vision statement and identify the steps needed to realise it
  • Own and define our strategic approach to achieving impact and value driven solutions
  • Build and manage client and product roadmaps that communicate how we will meet strategic goals and objectives
  • Explore innovative approaches with the teams, especially with the application of innovative design thinking and business design methodologies
  • Balance big picture strategic thinking with tactical and pragmatic approaches
  • Manage and foster deep and trusted client relationships, especially across senior and executive leadership 
  • Staying abreast of sector and audience trends to open opportunities
  • Implement digital strategy frameworks 
  • Drive digital transformation through both digital solutions and through culture and change management
  • Support with new business proposals and pitches and help us win exciting and challenging new projects, helping to shape the pitch narrative and pulling our ideas into a compelling story for potential clients.
Lastly, you’ll also help manifesto present its best public face and ensure that we communicate our brand, ethos and what we stand for as an organisation effectively. You will demonstrate thought leadership within the sector, running.

About You

You’ll be passionate about driving value and user-centric values in all that you do. You are an active problem solver, using your skills and techniques and applying them to different situations to bring the best out of the solution and the strategy being put forward. 


You will be comfortable with the unknown, making sense and shape out of client problems to outline a pathway to the right outcomes. You will also be comfortable facilitating sessions with large and senior audiences, as well as presenting and speaking both in pitches and at events. 

You will be very detail oriented, and well versed in breaking down and articulating large complex problems into understandable and relatable iterations and descriptions. 


We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds; it’s important that we represent the communities we serve. You may have agency and strategy experience, but equally you may have worked in or had significant exposure to charity, not-for-profit or membership organisations. 


We are flexible about where you live, as long as you are in the UK with the right to work here. We support remote working - noting that, as we navigate post-Covid life, there will be a requirement for onsite work  and dace to face meetings with clients, and time with your colleagues at our London HQ and other hubs around the UK. 

 
 
Essential Experience
 
  • Knowledge or understanding of our focal sectors (Charity, Membership, Visitor attractions, and Higher Education)
  • Product ownership and management experience and capabilities
  • A strong facilitator and presenter 
  • Experience with new business proposal and pitch creation
  • A strong relationship builder and comfortable managing expectations and knowing when to push back
  • High level of commercial acumen and awareness when delivering projects to reach outcomes within client budget.
