As a result, when it comes to copy, we’re a brand that gets to the point and cuts out complexity for customers, with a sprinkling of mischief thrown in for good measure.

This role will work within the wider agency creative team, reporting into a Senior Creative, and generating and developing ideas to the exacting standards of our Executive Creative Director. 

Success will be an extension of the IHA’s remit over time, taking on higher profile briefs as we prove our capability to the business.

Build strong relationships with the rest of the IHA team, as well as with external agency partners, showing respect for the contribution of each discipline and everyone. Develop positive relationships with marketing and other roles that brief the IHA. You will take direction well, but also be passionate about pushing boundaries in the work and be prepared to voice an opinion. It is important to be a good communicator who can express their needs clearly.
  • Help the In-House Agency run efficiently and effectively Support agreed ways of working, taking direction as appropriate, to work efficiently and effectively.
