Tired of doing a great job but still not getting enough opportunities to create truly great campaigns? Sick of pushing this point home with your AD, CD, CEO, CFO and the cleaner only to be told you’re just unappreciative and damn lucky to have any job at all? Ever thought about going client side? Well, before you really destroy a beautiful career, think about joining us.
We’re on the lookout for an up and coming suit with approximately 2-3 years’ experience to work on a great client. You’ll be working as part of a team, and very closely – not that closely - with the Business Director. You’ll also need to possess all of those skills you say you possess on your CV; things like enthusiasm, efficiency and the ability to build great internal and external relationships. And it doesn’t hurt to know how to manage large & small projects effectively and be a creative thinker to help to develop solutions to client problems.
If you’re up for a fresh challenge, and you’ve had it up to the armpits with the people you currently work with, get in touch at email@example.com
Awesome news. Facebook's become full of spam, clickbait, fake news stories and mundane ads. The only issue is that people don't actually create much content themselves so it may get a bit boring..
lots of actors in it, unlike recruitment
NZTA falls apart with the dated look and delivery. Nothing believable, just advertising. Sorry but more realism, storytelling and believability could have made this standout, but it fails.
want to elaborate on that? did you hate the recruitment ad also?
Another waste of taxpayers' money and police time.
Right on the money as always. Microinfluencers get so much more engagement - and the good ones don't have to pay for fake followers! And I'm with you on Snapchat. You think you look better with a dog's face?!

Who’s it for: New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) by Clemenger BBDO.
Why we like it: Ubiquitous to the festive season is a car rearing past you at a dangerous rate as you drive to your holiday spot. NZTA have buckled the public up, subjecting viewers to the sobering role of a policeman as he deals with a speed related fatality. The ad is filmed through the lens of honest realism as a policeman guides the viewer into the devastating consequences of speeding. The dialogue exposes an ignorant perception among many who believe they have a ‘right to speed’. NZTA’s campaign comes in the wake of various deaths on the road, offering a timely reminder that less speed equals less harm.
Who’s it for: McDonald’s by How to Dad and BloggersClub
Why we like it: New Zealand comedian, How To Dad’s Jordan Watson, dons the stubbies and gumboots yet again to celebrate the return of the Kiwi Burger. The ad follows Watson on his quest to partake in the various escapades on Kiwis' love list; including his cricket, skiing and golf ability. Watson is becoming an iconic figure in Kiwi advertisements which aligns well with McDonald’s localized burger. Since 3 January, McDonald’s have reached 566,000 views, 14,000 reactions and 3,000 shares on Facebook with the ad, proving it to be a number eight wire success.
Who’s it for: Mitre 10 by FCB.
Why we like it: Mitre 10’s simple but effective mantra is reinforced, releasing a new campaign for its own brand, Number 8. The campaign offers a wide selection of short video’s exhibiting the simple, yet practical bevvy, of home improvement products. The ads project gleaming shots of products; the Number 8 Handsaw, the Number 8 Hose and the Number 8 hammer which are all presented on a podium. Each video has a frank one-liner, which is bound to arouse any Kiwi into a frenzy of belly laughs. The campaign has kept the videos short and sweet while infusing the recognizable fluro orange of Mitre 10.
