Consultant

Experienced, full-time, London

Who we are

THE OPPORTUNITY
We’re looking for a talented Consultant to join our LOOPING INSIGHT unit to help us grow our strategic consulting services. This is a unique opportunity for a consultant who is looking for a career change into something highly entrepreneurial. 
 
As a start-up strategic consulting unit within a growing digital-first data and content agency, you will help craft our direction and play a significant role in our development as a boutique consultancy beyond what is typical for this level. This is also a chance to work within consumer-facing sectors, with leading global brands, and within the disciplines of marketing, branding, and media. 
 
Furthermore, Looping Group offers the opportunity to be a part of a progressive and multifarious team with a balanced lifestyle as compared to traditional consulting roles, with more controllable hours, less travel, excellent benefits, and hybrid working.
 
THE BUSINESS 
Here at Looping Group, we have a distinctive offering to brands we work with. We develop strategies and content for earned and owned digital platforms, using data-insights and trends to create content that authentically connects brands with their audiences, and measures their impact on business outcomes. 
 
As an independent agency, we have ample opportunity to explore the best solutions for clients and truly think uniquely. We are a tech-enabled agency built to think ahead of the modern world. 
 
Working in the latest new office in London, and within the new INSIGHT unit, will be like working in a start-up; you’ll have ample opportunity to grow and develop in your role, whilst also contributing towards new business developments. 
 
WHY WE EXIST 
In this world, attention has become extremely scarce. To win attention, brands must now combine the art and science of storytelling. We put this at the heart of our product and service offering, uniquely combining the two to create business solutions and content that commands attention, engages customers, and drives tangible business results. 
 
Founded just five years ago by journalists, creatives and producers, we have already established ourselves as a leader in data-driven storytelling, working with an impressive roster of brands including Mercedes Benz, Allianz, Sooner, and the Human Vaccines Project. Our team consists of over 200+ multi-skilled staff split between offices in Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich, and this is an opportunity to be a part of the newly established London office and INSIGHT practice.

OUR INCLUSION STATEMENT 
Every role at Looping Group is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe that embracing difference is critical to the success of Looping Group. We see potential in every individual regardless of: race, ethnic origin or nationality; religion or belief; physical or neuro ability; socio-economics or age; marital, domestic or civil partnership status; sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other characteristic that makes you, well, you.
 
We are committed to conscious inclusion to create a sense of belonging, connection and shared purpose within our teams. We know it’s the right thing to do, and we know it will make us all happier, fulfilled, and successful in our work.
