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.
• 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 email@example.com with a copy of your CV.
Right, so is the plan to stay pitching a single director/film co. on client jobs too? Or shall we just agree to pay them a fair fee to quoting the work? Agencies are reaping what they've sown. Please! This is ...
Sounds good. Though, with a reduction in the average number of agencies per pitch, I hope there are some provisions encouraging testing out smaller or new agencies as well. Look forward to reading.
Perhaps Agencies could employ these same best practice parameters when pitching Directors against each other?
When did JustOne become a 'digital specialist agency'?
An unsurprising but still disappointing decision from the toothless ASA and BSA - did TVCAB have any opinion on this? http://www.medialawjournal.co.nz/?p=682
I wasn't going to congratulate Craig on his appointment to MBM. Now I'll send him condolences.

Who's it for: Ecostore by DDB
Why we like it: For its first brand campaign, Ecostore is making itself heard with a powerful message about the future that will have the audience questioning their outlook. As a brand that promotes itself as being safe for consumers and the world they live in, examining the dichotomy between the optimism of youth and the pessimism of the older generation shows our environment doesn't have to be set for a future of melted ice caps and deforestation. There is hope out there and clearly, Ecostore wants to be apart of it.
Who's it for: Flick Electric by Special Ad Service
Why we like it: While many people have their aha moments in the shower or while exercising, others, according to Flick Electric, have them while performing taxidermy on birds. It may be an odd image for a power company, but the tongue-in-cheek approach shows the company is willing to have a bit of fun as it goes about recruiting new customers.
Who's it for: Jockey New Zealand by Parlour
Why we like it: It's hard to ignore the obvious appeal of seeing the All Blacks strip down to their Jockeys for the entirety of the video and for those who aren't as fazed by what lies beneath the black jersey, it's an insight into what the boys get up to off the field. Apparently, Anton Lienert Brown enjoys peanut butter on toast and sailing. And while special guest and former Shortland Street star Will Hall doesn't strip down completely, a special mention has to be given to his bravery to sit alongside the undressed All Blacks in just Jockeys and a robe.
