Global Consulting Director

Role Overview:

Love management consulting but looking for something a little different? Ogilvy’s brand and marketing strategy consultancy, OgilvyRED, is seeking experienced strategy consultants for a Global Consulting Director position. Candidates must have an MBA and at least two years experience with a major consulting firm. Knowledge of brand and

marketing is a plus but not critical.

OgilvyRED is a small, entrepreneurial and extremely fast growing group within Ogilvy. We are positioned as the strategic advisors to the C-Suite on all aspects of brand, marketing and business growth. Although we are part of Ogilvy & Mather

and sit at the global corporate level, our work is left brain as well as right brain. We are pioneering new ways of linking brand and marketing to money. The ideal candidate will bring a unique blend of project management, analytical, quantitative and financial skills, together with the ability to think strategically and creatively, to the job. This position provides the right candidate with the unique opportunity to grow into an industry expert in a cutting-edge area of consulting.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Managing the day-to-day project engagement, including project management, and client relationship
  • Participating in all aspects of our methodology and work, including analyzing quantitative research and creating financial models, as well as creative thinking and developing strategic recommendations
  • Communicating with clients to collect relevant information and understand business
  • Managing the financial and budgetary aspects of client projects
  • Taking ownership of developing client deliverables
  • Participating in developing new business through proposals and pitches to new clients
  • Developing new business with existing clients

  • Managing junior consultants as necessary for the successful running of project engagements
  • Participation in client and external interviews and client presentations
  • Active participation in practice management, including training and recruiting


  • At least 2-3 years strategy consulting experience, with a major firm
  • Marketing experience is a plus
  • Ideally MBA from top-tier business school, with a proven strong academic record
  • Travel is expected as a part of all project engagements, though less time is spent on client premises than at a traditional firm (we are more market facing)
  • Strategy consulting
  • Brand and marketing strategy a plus
  • Financial modeling
