About Kin + Carta Connect

At Kin + Carta Connect we believe growth is built, not theorised. We’re makers, builders and creators by nature, and we come to work every day to build experiences your customers will love and technologies your business will thrive on.

Our approach is simple: Accelerate idea-to-value by striking the ideal balance of human-centred design, Agile engineering and the realities of affecting change at scale. Including new product development, service design and cloud modernisation, we take a hands-on approach to transforming our clients’ business. We’re headquartered in London and have delivery offices in Chicago, New York, Edinburgh, Amsterdam and Buenos Aires.

The role in a nutshell:

We are on the search for a Senior Business Strategist. The role is all about the next level logic and magic. It’s about deriving actionable insights from research (existing and commissioning original), using modelling and planning tools to create strategic recommendations for prospective and existing clients in bids and briefs.

You will competently and confidently cover a broad spectrum of client needs, including supporting on digital vision & transformation strategies, while building consensus across corporate stakeholders. The role also involves working with the full breadth of our agency capabilities, and adopting new frameworks where appropriate to communicate vision and strategy to clients and prospects.

We can offer excellent opportunities to progress within a new but rapidly growing company. You will be a central figure in a key craft, whilst also supported by leading consultants in a fun, collaborative and flexible team environment. 

As a Senior Business Strategist at Kin + Carta you will:

  • Develop and strategically support large scale performance management and digital maturity programmes.
  • Bring together understanding across business goals, human behaviour, technology and data to offer best in class proposals and recommendations.
  • Work with specialist teams from across the Connective to diagnose business requirements, deliver transformation strategies and roadmaps for delivery.
