Creative Lead, EMEA (FTC)


Netherlands - Amsterdam Office

About us

Dyson is growing fast, and our ambition is huge – more categories, more locations, and more people. Our technology is unique and complex, so it’s up to us to explain it clearly. Working in-house, directly with engineers and the broader business, we create inspirational communications that showcase our technology. Our commercial strategies should launch our pioneering technologies and explain why they are better as simply and clearly as possible. We create customer and owner experiences that are authentic and uniquely Dyson.

About the role

This is a one-year, fixed-term maternity cover position in the Dyson COE (Centre of Excellence for the EMEA region).

As a Creative Lead with a copywriting background, plus experience in film and photography production, you’ll be developing, managing, and overseeing the creative output across Dyson’s EMEA markets. You’ll be responsible for developing strategic creative concepts based on local market insights, looking at the end-to-end execution of bespoke campaigns, content partnerships and live shopping. You’ll make sure that the Dyson language, look, and feel are consistent across all touchpoints, from print to TV to Link app.

You’ll be applying global assets to local channels and ensuring that these assets are applied correctly, consistently and in line with our visual identity and tone of voice guidelines. You’ll understand our brand, our philosophy and ethos inside out and use this understanding to create effective Dyson experiences that are adapted for the EMEA region.

You’ll work closely with the EMEA marketing teams to ensure that briefs are strategically right for our reputation and appropriate for our business, balancing short term sales objectives with the longer-term identity of Dyson. You’ll oversee our design hubs and third-party film/video production agencies to ensure assets are implemented correctly in every channel and platform and produced to Dyson’s high creative standards.

You’ll also be leading and overseeing a team of two copywriters and one art director, who will report into the Creative Director.
