Rob Furness

Senior Consultant, Planning & Strategy - London

Hi I’m Rob! I graduated with a degree in Music at Manchester University; following which I set off on an adventure travelling across South & Central America, it was a tough time….

During my travels I found I had a genuine interest in people and culture (and Empanadas and Caipirinhas!) and naturally found myself specialising in head-hunting freelance, contract and permanent Planners and Strategists across creative advertising, digital and integrated agencies.   

It’s a challenging time for Advertising. That being said, I believe the role of a planner or strategist hasn’t necessarily changed; the “channel specialisms” have however. This can make a move intimidating and confusing but it doesn’t have to be! If you need advice about your options, feel free to hit me up; I’m always up for a chat. Who knows, we might both learn something!
