This is the Walk
The Walk is a busy, Melbourne-based integrated marketing agency working with international, multinational and Australian clients with a single purpose; to create brilliant marketing that gets results.
Every day we use innovative thinking, digital tools, systems, data – and even pens and paper – to devise intelligent marketing strategies and execute these efficiently and effectively in markets from ANZ to APAC and the US. With our small but versatile team, we’re perfectly placed to deliver the agility that so many bigger agencies can’t achieve, without sacrificing what our clients rely on; strategic expertise, creativity or the ability to execute.
We pride ourselves on working closely with clients, collaborating seamlessly, delivering pragmatic clear thinking, and becoming a trusted extension of their team. This is where you’ll shine.
Can you tell that we love what we do? It’s important that you do too.
Is this you?
We’re looking for an excitable and enthusiastic creative team with plenty of hands-on experience in an agency environment and ideas that just keep coming. Exceptional collaborators and communicators, you’ll be tasked with leading the creative output of the agency with the support of a terrific team consisting of designers, writers, developers who, together with our Studio Manager, will help you deliver high quality work at pace. You’ll work closely with the founders, who are a creative team themselves, so you can expect leadership that supports you at every stage.
We’re reluctant to put out another job ad with the word passion in it, but it’s a core quality of the agency – every day we bring our hearts, minds, energy and enthusiasm to work. Our goal? To deliver best-in-class results for our clients – and have fun while doing it.
So what kind of work will you be doing?
The Walk has a rich history of working with multinational technology enterprises, so your ideas will be put to work for some of the world’s leading brands. But we’ve always maintained a diverse client base because we know how much you learn when working on a broad range of client sizes, geographies and verticals. What you learn on a tight budget for a smaller client has a way of influencing what you do for an enterprise client – and vice versa. So you can expect to work on projects of many different sizes and shapes, across different verticals, in different geographies.
As an integrated marketing agency, we are all about impact, performance and results. We call ourselves media-agnostic, not because we don’t believe in any mediums, but because we use data-informed understanding of where the audience is to choose what channels will be most effective in influencing their decisions. So you won’t be bashing out banners all day, and you won’t spend every day writing yet more marketing emails. In fact, your ideas, lines and designs will be the spark for creating effective communications across a range of mediums, all with the goal of taking the audience on a journey so our client’s message will be top of mind at just the right time.
What you’ll bring
You’ll know marketing inside and out, and ideally come with experience in B2B marketing, channel marketing and lead generation. You’ll need to be comfortable working on a diverse range of projects across different channels, audiences and geographies. Your attitude to excellence will help you guide designers, coders, illustrators and other team members to execute with the message in mind and to the highest quality standards.
You’ll benefit from working with an experienced team in a supportive and fun environment. You will enjoy variety in spades and the chance to grow your career in new directions. We pride ourselves on supporting career development and personal growth so that you can become the best person you can be.
