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.
• 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.

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 email@example.com with a copy of your CV.

Who's it for: Super Rugby by Sugar & Partners
Why we like it: Super Rugby is typically a fast-paced game, but to promote the season Sugar & Partners have slowed down the action to ensure audiences don't miss a thing. Despite the change of pace, the excited fans jumping around, motocross rider and confetti ensure the campaign continues to build on the hype generated in previous campaigns. The music by local artist Kings also helps to provide energy—did you spot him in the crowd?
Who's it for:The New Zealand Olympic Committee by Saatchi & Saatchi
Why we like it: Competing on a global stage is no easy feat, and that's before cold temperatures, wind and snow are added. This campaign takes New Zealanders behind the scenes of the Winter Olympics to see what it takes get there and hopefully win a medal. In this particular video, featuring Janina Kuzma, the choice to not add music and leave the wind as the only sound emphasises the harsh conditions she trains in and her dedication to the sport.
Who's it for: Kiwibank by Hello
Why we like it: Kiwibank is bidding farewell to student giveaways and acknowledging the demographic is not only motivated by freebies. Instead, this campaign, featuring Shortland Street's Jayden Daniels, ties into the brand's wider campaigns about investing in a locally owned bank. And if that message alone isn't enough to make students sit up and listen, the inclusion of Daniels taking his shirt off is sure to generate some attention.
