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.

• 3 years+ relevant experience
• Strong client relationship skills and communication
• Exceptional organizational skills
• Proactive mindset and focused on solutions
• 100% attention to detail – nothing gets past you!
• A natural passion and curiosity for advertising that elicits a response

Did Augusto get hired to shoot something and then go to the client direct, the way they usually do?
That's a much better ad and great to see a NZ agency involved. When compared with National's Election Ad here https://youtu.be/4Mq_Cf_RZvY the striking difference is the music. Labour's is upbeat and buoyant. Unfortunately National's is... well... boring.
It's like they aired an animatic. No prizes for craft.
Mel, what an asset you will make to the team. Such a great next step in your career. All the best. They are lucky to have you.
Nicely put! @Stoppress, put down the wooden spoon!
PolSci 101 graduates are just so cute. Look at the passion in their incoherent rants ♥️

Who's it for: Spark by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: Not only does this spot point out how little victories can make a huge impact, it's using little New Zealanders to do the storytelling. As a child speaks some very wise words, scenes of kids running across a beach, posing in their rugby gear and ballet dancing play out on the screen. Their happiness is matched by the older characters who are seen getting married and taking photos, and the result is a feel-good spot that covers a diverse cross-section of New Zealand.
Who's it for: Vodafone by FCB
Why we like it: Not only are the black and white shots pleasing to the eye, they're set to a beautiful piece of music. Having been used in previous spots, it's become a familiar part of the Vodafone brand to the point where it only takes the first few piano notes to know its an ad for the telco. And if you choose to listen closer, you'll be rewarded with an inspirational message about how the right technology and a team backing you can enable you to create your own luck.
Who's it for: Kiwibank via Assignment Group
Why we like it: Last year, we watched as Kiwibank projected Kiwi's onto the sides buildings and landmarks in an effort to promote the bank keeping its profits on local soil—literally. Now, it's revisited that idea with a business focus. In this instance, Kiwis have been projected onto their businesses while discussing the importance of joining a bank that will join you. It's a clever idea to show Kiwibank's commitment to local business owners and New Zealand as a whole.
Who's it for: Banqer by Snorkel
Why we like it: While many campaigns have been known to preach about making smart financial decisions, Banqer's approach is allowing the audience to experience the repercussions of debt for themselves. Although it's fun to see what could go wrong if you make a bad decision, you soon realise that when you've dug a hole, it's a hole that really hard to get out. And for the adults among us engaging with the video, the fact that it's children ripping you off only adds insult to injury.
Who' it for: Arnott's NZ by Y&R
Why we like it: As the children's sing-along goes, "Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar?". It's probably for the best that the song never came to any conclusions because in this Arnott's spot, the resulting argument is enough to spark a global apocalypse. And if the idea isn't already bizarre enough, it's the All Blacks who are at the centre of events and coach Steve Hansen who rides in at the end to restore civility. For those who are eager to find out what happens next, they'll have to patiently wait until November when the full campaign makes its debut in cinemas. If you can't wait, there's a second trailer in which a couples weekend ends in disaster.
