The firm aligns its incentives with clients by linking its fees to their results. Bain clients have outperformed the stock market 4 to 1.

FRWD is a unique digital marketing consultancy with deep hands-on execution skills and experience. FRWD is designed to build client capability through a comprehensive approach to helping companies make the best marketing investments. To do so, FRWD extends client teams through co-location of top creative, media optimisation, data science, and advertising technology teams to shorten test cycle time and leverage learnings to move forward. FRWD also acquires and trains talent for clients to create sustainable campaigns and drive continual improvement without further FRWD presence. FRWD was founded in Minneapolis and has grown a very successful hub in Bain’s London office. With the combined skills of Bain and FRWD, we are able to bridge the gap between brand, marketing, strategy and execution, trialing strategies in immediate real-life tests, while having the operating model and organisational design experience to scale the results throughout the organisation.
FRWD@Bain is looking for a senior marketing professional eager to take the next step in their career. Someone who enjoys and has successfully delivered business impact that clients value and wants to do that at a broader level. Ideal candidates are ready to lead high-performing teams and are intrigued by a unique consulting model that has all the leading agency skills while not selling agency services in order to consult purely focused on the client’s needs.
The Senior Manager is responsible for leading internal and client teams to successful outcomes with relatively little day-to-day “management” oversight. The Senior Manager is seen as an invaluable member of the client teams, helping move at pace through our “small moves” way of working. In some cases this role guides execution by other agencies or internal client teams, and in some cases by FRWD@Bain. The Senior Manager must objectively solve for each situation while earning trust without turf issues – sometimes including CMOs, CFOs and other agency partners.
Experiences will typically range from very focused media mix and optimisation to full transformations across the marketing mix - strategy and audience segmentation, creative, analytics through to delivering results for great brands and clients. We are looking for someone who is excited to share their knowledge with the broader Bain and client teams, and connect the client’s marketing efforts to broader business outcomes. The person must want to help build and foster a healthy and innovative work environment, with a strong team focus and an ability to inject fun and humor even at the busiest times.
FRWD@Bain work is based on deep and rigorous analysis and presenting actionable recommendations based on data and facts, not marketing trends. We work collaboratively with the clients and their agency and technology partners. Some of the key responsibilities are:
