Business Development Manager

  • Auckland - City

Augusto are content strategists and creators with offices in Auckland and New York. We work to create and engage audiences in the most entertaining and disruptive means possible. We're a diverse bunch, and not by accident.

We believe the best work comes from collaboration, from keeping the thinking as close to the making as possible. In our case that's under the same roof. Peek behind our roller door and you'll see creatives, directors, producers, designers, editors, motion artists, project managers, copywriters, technologists and strategists all working together with a holistic approach to creative and a shared responsibility for outcomes. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to create everything from feature films to Instagram stills. We've built VOD channels, captured the All Black's haka in VR, and developed a TV series filmed on Mt. Everest which screens in 220 territories.

Our ideal candidate would have experience in marketing, sales, media, content strategy and production….a big ask we know! So maybe you’re a BDM without media or agency experience but want to learn about content….or a Marketing Manager with experience in content that would like to move agency side…. an Account Director at an agency or Integration Specialist at a media company and want a new challenge operating in a different model.

A true business developer is required for this role, so chasing new business and creating value for new clients must be your passion. Ideally, you'll come in with a list of prospects ready to go.

We want a smart, high performing individual with a passion for what we do and a focus on results, but most important, you need to be up for some fun. So, if you are up for this role contact our Recruitment Manager, Angela Evans, for more information ( or upload your CV.

Who's it for: ASB by With Collective and Curious Films

Why we like it: The True Rewarden sheriff is back – and she’s here to teach us a lesson at the True Rewarden Academy training camp. The spot is simple and effective, with the sheriff explaining what True Rewards can be used for. We like Rachel House as the ‘True Rewarden’ as she brings great humour to the ad and hope ASB continues using the sheriff for further campaigns. 

Who's it for: LifeDirect by Trade Me by Y&R and Flying Fish

Why we like it: We all know unfortunate events happen to everyone at some time and we should be prepared. While most of us probably won’t end up in a shark's mouth, this is the premise of the hilarious new spot from LifeDirect by TradeMe. While the Jaws-esque ad is a change from Simon the Sloth (RIP), it's nice to see a bit of humour and fun injected into what can be a sometimes boring (but necessary) industry. 

Who's it for: Phloe from Douglas Pharmaceuticals by YoungShand and Reel Factory 

Why we like it: We can't go past ads that feature cute dogs and this one is no exception. Using a parade of misbehaving pooches to bring up the issue of bowel health is a clever move from Phloe. It's not clinical or scary and will ensure the audience is watching. Will be interesting to see how this campaign develops further or if another direction is taken.
