Navigating your career in-house

An inside Conversation with James Turner, Creative Lead, Waitrose

Emma Sexton sits down with James Turner, Creative Lead at Waitrose to discuss his in-house journey, common patterns, and the impact of building a brand inside out.

James has always worked in-house, raising the ambition, scope, and effectiveness of brands such as Moonpig, Sony, Joseph Joseph, Harvey Nichols, and PhotoBox. James discusses the common patterns he has observed across all the in-house creative teams he has worked in, from getting creative embedded higher to demonstrating how creative adds value.
