Advertising Creative

Job Type:
Leeds, United Kingdom

The role: Advertising Creative

We have an exciting opportunity for an Advertising Creative with a focus of creative copywriting to join our fast-growing Stars Creative team, based in our Leeds service office.

Are you our next super star?

We are building a new Marketing Centre of Excellence in Leeds and we’re looking for individuals with big ideas and the ability to think creatively and outside of the box. You will become part of a company that gives you everything you need to create winning moments to push your own boundaries and build the best experience for our millions of players around the world.

So, who are we? We’re home to some of the biggest, most exciting brands in the online gaming industry, with offices, events and players all over the world. We’re the ultimate owner of such brands as PokerStars, PokerStars Casino, BetStars, Full Tilt, Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Sky Casino, Sky Bingo, Sky Poker and BetEasy, as well as live poker tour and event brands.

Why we need you: -

We are an in-house advertising team, which produces global and local advertising for the Stars Group’s main verticals (Poker, Casino and Sports).  You will be working to help produce big budget global 360 advertising campaigns (brand, tactical, product) and will work with some of our celebrity ambassadors, right down to creating small banner ads for local markets. Our creative work is mostly produced in-house, although we also work with external agencies, when needed.

As part of this role, you will be responsible for providing creative solutions across more than traditional TV, press and online advertising, and will work collaboratively with our internal colleagues (rather than following the traditional agency/client model).  You will be responsible for conceptual and creative copy and working on creative briefs to develop innovative, imaginative, impactful and engaging creative ideas. Thinking beyond TV ads – embracing digital and 360 campaigns not simply TV scripts. 

You will be confident to present your creative ideas/opportunities to further the business without the need to be briefed and will work closely with our creative team to maintain high quality standards, consistency and implement clear creative vision for the brand.

Who are we looking for: -

We are looking for an outstanding creative agency professional with a proven conceptual creative ability across all media with an integrated view of communications, marketing and brands.  You will need an excellent strategic and business/commercial understanding and be well organised with the ability to multi-task and prioritize key projects to manage the variety this role has to offer. 

We are looking for a true creative thinker with a positive can do attitude, even under pressure with strong interpersonal skills and the ability to build relationships across departments.

As the ideal candidate, you will have: -

European or international creative agency experience is preferable but not necessary and any experience within the gaming sector and knowledge or passion for poker, would be desirable.

What’s in it for you?

The salary for this job is based on experience, so whilst we are not able to go into detail at this stage, we can say that we offer great salary packages and a discretionary annual performance bonus. We can also provide advice and dedicated assistance to those moving to Leeds.

We offer health and dental insurance for you, your partner and your children (if you all live at the same address). If you have a baby whilst you work for us, we will give you 1000 GBP as congratulations. In addition to that, we provide the opportunity for a discounted gym membership.

Our in-house training and development team deliver fantastic support in terms of developing your skills and helping you progress your career.

What happens next?

We will aim to get back to you as soon as possible. If you meet the criteria, then we’ll invite you to a phone interview and if that goes well we’ll meet you for a face-to-face interview.
