Job Description

MediaMonks is looking to add another CD to its superband of creatives. In this role, you’ll provide our clients with creative decks, ideas and direction, bringing forth award-winning products and campaigns for some of the MENA’s leading brands. If you are the Don(na) Draper of the digital and social age, we’d love to pick your brain.

Role amp; Responsibilities

  • As a CD at a global creative production agency, life’s a pitch: you engage projects for a living and relay responsibilities to others once the ball is rolling in the right (creative) direction.
  • In this senior-level position, you’ll develop concepts and copy for anything you could possibly throw at an integrated campaign: from taglines and scripts to concepts for digital activations, social media campaigns and experiential installations.
  • You need to show versatility in your thinking. It’s a role with a wide creative scope: from website to social content to film and innovation.
  • You’ll work as part of our pitch pack to win pitches and lead concepts for our A-list client.
  • You’ll also own the creative execution of projects, seeing them through from pitch to final delivery.
  • You’ll take ownership of the creative product end-to-end, leading and delivering projects from idea to final delivery.
  • You’ll visit clients throughout the region, leading workshops and providing creative direction for any kind of project.
  • A strong focus on social content, script writing, and film production is a must.
  • You bring top-notch production thinking to the table and provide creative consultation when it comes to the nitty-gritty of cutting-edge campaigns.

About us

MediaMonks is one of those (50) companies creative people would kill to work for. You’ll be part of a young, successful and crazy-ambitious company that is determined to reach Mars before Musk. In addition to an unlimited supply of incredible coworkers, MediaMonks brings a one-of-a-kind company culture, amplified by all the awards.

As a CD at MediaMonks, you’re part of the most awesome production agency on the planet, operating as ‘one office across 51 locations’ with an incredible in-house team of 3500+ team members across the S4Capital portfolio and counting.

Requirements

  • We’re looking to hire an all-round concept developer with at least 10 years of CD-level experience in advertising or production at the highest international level with extensive experience in the GCC.
  • You’re a flexible thinker. Whether it’s a 6 seconds social format, a website design, a 2 minute film or innovation in VR/AR, you’ve mastered creative storytelling in any format you’re given.
  • Make no mistake, this role requires you to put pen to paper and come up with buzzworthy ideas, and have the ability to present them in equally compelling decks.
  • You will take ownership for the entire campaign, providing strong leadership and direction throughout all stages of a project, including the management of a wider team of creatives, designers, and animators.
  • You know how to show leadership without a show of force, giving our in-house teams a clear creative direction and ownership over their projects.
  • You can independently lead fast-paced pitches but also love going the extra mile when painstakingly pushing running projects to perfection.
  • You’re a digital genius with an innate taste for the latest and greatest social platforms, digital technology, an instinct for snappy writing and a natural feel for visual design.
  • You’re confident leading different types of work spanning from digital and social campaigns to platforms and websites, hero films and TVCs, and installations.
  • For film-based projects, it’s all about the story: you champion storytelling and are experienced working together with film directors on integrated projects.
  • In digital, the user experience is king, and so you should be a sovereign when it comes to shaping concepts that captivate and inspire.
  • With strong pitching and presentation skills, you can represent MediaMonks by showcasing our cases, capabilities and culture to clients.
  • As part of a global company operating as one team across time zones, you need to be able to successfully direct work at a distance.
  • You have extensive experience and deep understanding of Middle Eastern audiences with an even deeper expertise in the Saudi and GCC society and culture
  • You understand the local culture and ways of working
  • You must speak and write Arabic and English fluently.
  • Role is based in Dubai or Riyadh
