Does the idea of using data to tell stories and to inspire the very best creative ideas make you weak at the knees? If so, listen up – BBH is looking for a digital analyst to help bolster the existing team of hand-picked social specialists.
What do digital analysts look like at BBH?
They need to know digital & social metrics inside out, as well as having knowledge of the tools that allow us to get to these metrics (Facebook Insights, Crimson Hexagon, Hitwise, ComScore, True Social Metrics etc.).
They are relentlessly curious and motivated; a person who understands how social fits into the bigger picture and can interpret this sometimes complex relationship, into simple and tangible terms for our clients.
We need someone who can make our clients feel loved, by understanding their business objectives and translating these into social KPIs.
Above all, they are someone who acknowledges the ever-increasing number of data points, but can demonstrate the separation between simply reporting on and actually analysing the data – someone who avoids (the beautifully coined) ‘data puke’ in favour for concise analysis and pithy insights.
We’re looking for someone who eats and sleeps social data – who is comfortable guiding both the clients and account teams on metrics that matter to them. Someone who is used to pulling together measurement frameworks tailored to each client. They will have been intrinsic in not only how campaigns should be measured, but in using data to optimise a live campaign to demonstrate the merits of reactivity.
In addition to all of the above, they will have an understanding of the crowded social technology landscape and have infectious enthusiasm for new tools & methodologies that will help us produce great work for our clients. They will have mourned the loss of Google Reader as a means to streamline the many blogs they read on social analytics – and importantly, have a point of view on the million dollar question of ROI. We want someone who can use this knowledge to evolve existing products and create new ones. Most importantly, they will impart this knowledge in an inspiring and approachable way to the rest of the agency – to help spread our objective of creating more socially connected ideas.
BBH is fortunate enough to have some of the biggest brands in our portfolio because we’re a restless company, constantly striving to do the best, most creative and innovative work possible. Creating socially connected ideas is at the top of agenda for growth so we need someone who has an entrepreneurial attitude to their work – enough to continue to grow the BBH social analytics offering.
Ultimately like all BBHers, we want someone who is ‘good & nice’- someone who wants to make great work and work in a great environment.

Today sees the launch of homeforxmas.org by BBH London. A Christmas initiative aimed at raising money for children’s charity Barnardo’s, helping fund their work with homeless young people.
The festive project, which runs for the next five days, invites the audience to donate as much as they can to Barnardo’s. In return, and as a show of appreciation, BBH will select an entrant’s home address each day and recreate their home in a snow globe using the latest 3D printing technology. This beautiful bespoke snow globe, complete with personalised engraving, will then be wrapped and boxed before finally being sent to the selected recipient.

Who we’re after
An interactive Creative Director. We’re looking for someone who has proven experience leading radical change in communications. We don’t care where you come from – you might be in an ad agency in a digital role, working as an interactive CD at a digital agency, as an interactive design CD, or within a technology or innovation company as a creative director or project director. You might have nothing to do with agencies at all.
What you’ll be like
Very simply, we’re looking for someone with a proven appetite for radical change, big ambitions, tons of experience working with big ideas and vast amounts of energy. Someone happy to wear many hats; a proper hybrid.
BIG IDEAS IN BREAKTHROUGH FORMATS: Most of all, we’re looking for someone who is happiest working, sleeping and playing with ideas. The bigger, the better. The more innovative the canvas, the better.
INTO TECHNOLOGY IN A BIG WAY: We need someone who gets the enormous potential of what’s out there now – especially in deep interactive and immersive digital experiences – and how emerging technologies can & might work with the more traditional stuff. Your experience and willingness to experiment & go out of your comfort zone with technology is critical.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE DESIGN: We require someone who loves graphic design and visual communication and who has the ability to mentor and guide graphic and interaction designers. Someone who has mastery of project concept creation, site architecture, user-interface specification, functionality specification and interactive design
AN INNOVATOR: Someone with strong opinions on how bigger & more breakthrough ideas can be created & nurtured for brands. Someone comfortable working with others in new and different ways. Someone who can surprise (us, others, themselves) and who likes surprises.
