Creative Business Director - 1 year maternity cover, Auckland

  • Auckland

We’re looking for a Creative Business Director to join our Running with Scissors NZ office.

You’ll need to be a strategic thinker, a creative problem solver, a good human and someone that can get things done.

Specifically;
• You’ll have good business acumen and a genuine interest in how our clients make a buck.
• You’ll have a deep understanding of the full marketing mix and what drives consumer behaviour.
• You’ll appreciate the importance of a clear strategy, communicated in simple language and will constantly check that tactics contribute to the strategic goal.
• You’ll have imagination and will love creativity, both as a problem-solving tool and as a way of engaging people.
• You’ll be empathetic, inspiring and collaborative, working with a diverse mix of client and supplier partners to bring ideas to life.
• You’ll be self-motivated, adaptable and comfortable in your own skin.
• You’ll make stuff happen and very little will phase you.

At Running with Scissors we have a pioneering approach to advertising and a desire to produce the most effective campaigns possible, no matter what they are. With staff in London and Auckland we’re working 24/6 to help our clients achieve commercial success.

If you’re successful you’ll be expected to manage accounts in their entirety (we don’t hire anyone whose sole responsibility is account service).

You’ll have a great deal of autonomy, and can manage your workload as you see fit. We don’t believe in counting hours or being desk bound. It’s only important that the work gets done and is delivered to Running with Scissors’ usual high standard. The job is fulltime and comes with the usual ebbs and flows of a creative agency.

At least five years creative agency or client marketing experience would be useful.

To apply please email bosses@rws.agency with a copy of your CV.

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for: New World by 99

Why we like it: A host of brands got in on the Easter hype, but the niece of one StopPress journalist assured us that there was no more exciting effort than the in-store egg hunt orchestrated by the New World team. It was essentially the Easter edition of Pokemon Go and it effectively managed to engage the chocolate-mad young'uns.   

Who's it for: Sanitarium by Shine

Why we like it: Sanitarium tells its brand story through the words of the folks who grow the ingredients and make every product possible. At a time when so many products on the shelf are over-processed, the short clip serves to remind the viewer that its products still come from the farm.
