Digital Director

CHE Proximity is looking for a new breed of Digital Director

If you’re looking for a role where you change the way things are done, then this is it.

When we bought media in-house we didn’t put it in a corner, instead we centralized it in the strategic planning department, within experience. Why? Because we believe experience starts with the very first exposure to a brand and so bought and owned channels should be planned together across the entire experience.

Our approach is driven by data and technology. Data is a huge part of what we do as an agency and media, particularly programmatic, is no different. We’re fortunate to have some excellent data scientists working with us helping to build the latest and greatest in models. From a technology point of view, we’re bringing adtech and martech together and have a team of developers enabling this. You’ll also be surrounded by brand and innovation planners, a UX team and Creative Directors who are all incredibly excited about this new offering.

Our client base has grown rapidly and is continuing on this upward trajectory. All of our clients are looking for fresh thinking in media. They cover a range of industries across education, energy, health and other service providers.

We are backed by The Omnicom Media Group and have access to all tools, support and deals. We operate on the Google Tech Stack and are part of the OMG worldwide Google deal. We are also a partner of Adobe, operating Adobe Audience Manager as our DMP.

We are constantly evaluating new technology, data and media partners to ensure we’re delivering the best programmatic offering and you’ll be a key part of this. Our focus is delivering programmatic which lives up to future vision of right person, right place for the right money rather than its past. We’re looking for someone who shares this vision and wants to be part of innovating and changing how we do things.

Who is CHE Proximity

More than ever before the medium, the message and it’s sequencing are inseparable from each other.

Unlike any time in history, connecting the medium, the message, and its sequencing to the consumer is more vital than ever.

Connected creativity is the synchronization of strategic positioning, engaging creative, combined with the next generation of engagement planning to ensure ideas create the cut-through needed to deliver the strongest commercial performances. Today, creativity cannot be left to chance. One brand expression or big TV ad is simply not enough.

More than ever, brands need to live in culture and our consumers worlds, allowing audiences to not only consume brands, but take part in owning, creating and amplifying them. To do this, the role of influencers, publishers, the news and bought media are inseparable from each other and the expression of the idea itself. To create such work, the classic disciplines of the marketing mix – advertising, experience, PR, CRM, media, digital – must all be unified, removing P&Ls, biases and incumbency to reveal a new breed of agnostic agency, resulting in connected creativity.

At CHE Proximity, we see this as the shift from brand as advertising to brand as experience. It is as profound a change in advertising as the printing press was to the democratisation of information. We are investing our every effort into leading this transformation and in doing so, supporting the sustainability of our cherished industry as an essential ingredient of modern commerce.

This is what we call Connected Creativity.
