Who We Are in the UK? 

Spark Foundry, the Acceleration Agency.

We help brands to identify, learn and respond to opportunities faster than the competition.

Every client has an area of their business they need to accelerate, from short-term goals to long-term transformation.

We’ve proven our approach during the most difficult year on record. Now we’re using it to provide a launchpad for their future.

Come be an accelerator with us.

How we accelerate

  • Planning: an approach that works in practice rather than theory, arming planners with the ability to create cutting edge campaigns
  • Intelligence: a suite of tools that give definitive answers to big questions, and uncovers actionable insights about real people
  • Trading: a model built on flexibility and trusted relationships, underpinned with bold guarantees
  • Relationships: a culture of asking challenging questions to better understand the brief – we are not a ‘yes’ agency
  • People: a strong history of recruiting talent from diverse backgrounds and accelerating their careers


Job Description

SPARK’s planning department is the heart of the agency – in terms of its function, its people and its location.  We are diverse in our experience, personalities, nationalities and the clients we look after - and we celebrate that diversity. 

Our clients are professional but also creative and fun and this is reflected in the way we work and relate to each other.  We’re a great team who know that the way to deliver great work is to work together – and we enjoy it.  We are a tight-knit team who socialize together and share in each other’s successes.

We as their agency are charged with making sure that message is seen and delivered on a global scale, and we are entrusted to bring forward big ideas that will bring their vision to life. 


This role would benefit an ambitious, individual who has the vision and skills to move brands forward.

  • You will need to have a firm foundation in both traditional and digital media planning.

  • You will report to the Business Director and be responsible for maintaining strong relationships with all the investment teams and fostering new ones with the rest of the Publicis. You will take a lead role in responses, implementation of campaigns and management of reporting.
  • You will need to be confident managing both upwards and downwards. As a person you will be highly enthusiastic and collaborative, it is essential here at Spark that you can get your point across and bring your client, team and line manager along with you.
