  • Overview

    In order to respond effectively to the rapidly changing production landscape, Ogilvy and Hogarth have recently agreed a new global partnership. This partnership is currently operational in 14 Markets.. The partnership covers three key areas of Ogilvy’s Clients production: Moving image, Campaign Digital and Print. The model is designed to provide Ogilvy offices with an onsite presence and to provide a portal into the wider production capabilities of Hogarth globally:


    Bespoke and optimized  to each Ogilvy Office.

    Works closely with Creative teams, developing expert Client knowledge


    Hogarth Centres of Excellence:deliver category expertise and Global capacity


    Hubs with required scale to drive speed of delivery and required efficiencies



    The role is to build the entity into a powerful, modern production house by leading and managing the onsite teams (based in Ogilvy’s Jakarta office),) and to act as the conduit into Hogarth – both locally and regionally as above. The quality of the work produced is our absolute driving force. Key to the role is to build excellent relationships with key Ogilvy stakeholders – local management including the Head of the Ogilvy ‘Delivery’ function and – critically – the wider creative community. Whilst there is an agreed process for the work to come into this Hogarth unit, winning the hearts and minds of this community is critical to the success of the role. You need to be seen by Ogilvy as the true production expert, with a very strong and clear association with high quality work. Attracting the talent to produce this work is also critical, as is the need to build strong relationships with clients and to work in large multi-faceted new business teams.


    You will have overall responsibility for profitability and growth of the Indonesian business. You will drive the overall success of the partnership


    The current staff numbers of this unit is approximately 10.




    The role reports into the Regional Director APAC, with a matrix into the Ogilvy Country CEO. A key relationship (but not reporting into) is with the Local Head of Production who controls all Ogilvy production output.
