At Ogilvy Social.Lab Amsterdam, we inspire brands and people to impact the world. We do this by delivering borderless creativity at the intersections of culture, data and creativity. All of our disciplines work together in our bright, open-plan office, with a friendly culture and creatively permissive environment (we find the best ideas pop up that way).
We know that our success is a direct result of our dedicated team. Therefore, we are looking for a talented Dutch speaking Strategist who can contribute to nurturing and developing some of the most established regional and international brands.

We have a set of five values that we expect everybody in the agency to sign up to. It’s not a set of rules, but it is a set of beliefs about how we go about our daily lives that we think helps set expectations of the kind of folk we look for.
