I thankfully still have an interview scheduled for an in-house AD role. How do I diplomatically find out from the hiring manager (who’s the head of brand) how much creative leeway i’m gonna get?

If it’s not going to make a difference whether you accept the job, then don’t ask. We are on the cusp of a huge recession. Don’t rock the boat with such a question.

Ask about priorities and what their goals are for the team for the year. I usually find this helps get a sense. (New projects, ideas, focus for 2020, etc.) But agree with CD1 otherwise.

Find a more delicate way to phrase the question without sounding like you're putting your ego ahead of the client/agency. Maybe make it about your enthusiasm to win the agency awards.

You could ask for a rundown of what a “typical project” is like there, and fish for “so, someone in my position would get to___/would be responsible for___/has the freedom to___/etc” But ... I agree with CD1; only ask if it’s going to actually change your decision.
