Based in the heart of Soho, BBH London is a vibrant hub of creativity, where the Black Sheep was first born. Today we are home to over 400 BBHers across our different specialisms, all connected by one culture.
There is no "one size fits all" at BBH. We believe in the power of difference to make a difference. If you surprise people, then they’ll sit up. If you speak a different language to everyone else, then they’ll listen. If you craft your message with love and originality, then that message will land harder. If you give people something useful that makes their lives a little bit better, then they’ll thank you. Everything we do is born out of the pursuit of difference. We fill our building with people who are different. We like to work with people who are different.
Our enduring commitment to difference is best embodied by The Black Sheep. It represents our businesses, our culture, and the people who work here.

Strategy Directors apply imagination to a precise, data-based understanding of a brand’s performance and how people are feeling in order to maximize the return of a client’s marketing investment.
As BBH is a premium brand, we must return a premium. Therefore Strategy Directors must make a difference above and beyond the competition.
To do this Strategy Directors act as bridges between two worlds: commerce and creativity. They must speak the languages of these two worlds with extreme fluency and be able to translate between the two.
Strategy Directors must bring both Intelligence and Magic to work. It is a job requirement to be sharp, obviously. But it is also a job requirement to be interesting. Everything is relevant. Being a Strategy Director is an excuse to be a more fascinating person. So, like the dormouse said, feed your head.
We are the architects of the marketing machine but also must animate it with creativity and feeling to return value to our clients.
Our ambition is to have the most inspiring, positive and authoritative strategy team in the world, with mastery over an unrivaled collective skillset – and this all led by the Strategist Directors.
To do that we believe you should be black belts in the following mindset, general skills and specific skills:
Excellence – You aim to be the best at what you do.
Breadth of competency – You have a broad and deep knowledge of marketing and creativity and understand and can draw from different specialisms. You must be able to see the whole picture and connect it up. You have mastery in key areas.
Business – you understand commerce, can read a balance sheet and find the source of growth.
