Our agency justONE is growing and we are looking for our next star Account Manager with chops who’s looking to progress into a Senior Account Manager role.
You will be responsible for delivering marketing campaigns for some very high profile New Zealand brands. You'll also support your tight team of 4 and be the key point of contact for your clients.
Experience with DM or Retail is desirable but not essential. What we are looking for is proven success working on sizeable accounts and a pride in what you do.
You’ll be joining an established team of experts who consistently win a swag of awards every year. By proxy you’ll be in a prime position to also work on awarded campaigns. In the NZDM awards held earlier this year we picked up Winner 2016 NZ DM Awards ¬ Supreme Nexus, 6 Gold, 6 Silver and 6 Bronze awards.
With all these awards you’d assume we work extreme hours but that’s not the case. We work smart, and hard when required. We’ve managed to become highly awarded without big egos and we hire people who share our collaborative and team-minded work ethic.
We are specialists not generalists – so everything we do, we do to the highest level.
What makes this role unique?
You will work closely with creative, production and external suppliers to deliver world-class work across a variety of media, predominantly direct mail, email, digital, content and print.
Because we are a boutique sized agency you get to do more as a suit and learn more in the process. You’ll be able to write your own creative briefs, and have full control over your jobs. You’ll get loads of variation within your role and have less layers of agency process to navigate through.
Also, if you spot an opportunity that you think justONE or your client could pursue we will back you to do that. Our team are empowered to make change and encouraged to think outside of the box.
What is the opportunity?
It’s a chance for someone with the right attitude and initiative learn a great deal in a short amount of time. Faster than any other agency doing this type of work in NZ - if not Australasia because of the access to the big thinkers and big brands.
If you are focussed, savvy and excel in the role you could progress into an Account Director role over time. We enjoy watching others succeed and support our staff to be the best they can be.

Isn't the whole point of this article to parody exactly that? I.e. the idea that many in the industry don't know what they're doing, which leads to all the flashy/fishy practices described in the article?
Not wanted in that agency were you? Cheer up.
Awful. Badly written, terribly made, no idea. I have no idea why you would PR this level of work.
Agency Wnk. The cold hard experience of being agencyside provides an understanding that most staffers even C level ad-types have no clue what they're doing.
It's good that. …and then there's the D.I.Y. client - who'll cobble it together with a host of bit players from social media mavens to content creators with iPhone Xs (seriously, I listened to a client bang on recently about ...
Honouring the ads—and the agencies responsible for them—that make the biggest impact on consumers and get more bang for the client’s buck.

Who’s it for: WorkSafe by Assignment Group.
Why we like it: Hilarious but serious, this ad from WorkSafe elicits both laughter and pensive thought as fictional commentators ‘Pat Silverwood’ and ‘Joe Munro’ give a play-by-play of workers actions. And while not all workplaces feature a pair of commentators armed with mics to make themselves heard, it's hoped the enjoyable campaign that will encourage Kiwis to ‘Use Your Mouth’ and speak up in the workplace.
Who’s it for: Icebreaker by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: Motion Sickness has blended storytelling with an ad in this beautifully shot video for Icebreaker. While the connection with Icebreaker isn't obvious from the start, as Riley Elliott's mulls over what makes him so passionate about sharks, we learn a lesson about facing and embracing fear—and it's one that suits the nature of the outdoor adventure brand.
Who’s it for: G.J. Gardner Homes by 99
Why we like it: Personalising a large company like G.J. Gardner Homes can be tough. But the company has done a nice job of giving local workers a face. Going from Queenstown to the Manawatu, franchisees speak about themselves, how they work and how they are involved with, and support, the local community around them. It's a good way to get to know those who are responsible for bringing to life the homes for G.J. customers.
