Is anyone here familiar with OLIVER Agency? I keep running into the same job post (months actually). Is it one of those instances where the post is too vague on purpose? I’m perfect for the position, in all of it’s vagueness anyway, why haven’t they hired me yet? Or someone? Just curious about what goes on behind closed doors.

hi — Oliver is a consulting firm that assists in setting up in-house agencies; i believe Oliver is what they call all of the agencies once established. not sure the details of the job post, but i think they hire for their specific locations not as a broader consultancy. not sure if that helps, but just wanted to share. i had a client use them.

Yeah that could explain the general description of the role. I appreciate the info, thanks.

Sometimes companies will post job ads to collect resumes for positions that aren't open yet, but that they may have a need for in the future. That might explain why it's so vague and why it's been up for so long.

They did just win a lot of new business, so the jobs are real, but they keep the postings vague so you don’t realize it’s all mindnumbing production work. I think if you are looking for job security in the agency world, though, that’s the way to go.

That’s a bit much. (no clever answer here).

Yes, sharp stuff there. Very distinct culture, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they posted an ad fishing for a unicorn

And by “unicorn” they mean someone with multiple disciplines who they can pile a ton of work on without paying said individual what they’re worth.

I got an interview with them for a GCD/copy role. They set up in-house agencies and this role was for inside a financial services company. The salary was insulting (and the recruiter didn’t mention it until the end of the interview). I see the job is still posted.

Ugh thanks. Best of luck with your next interview.
