Digital Group Account Director

  • Auckland - CBD

You might have seen us around. We’re Young+Shand: next-level digi agency and the biggest indie in NZ.

In six short years we’ve grown from just two guys and a dream to an agency of 50+ peeps working on some of the most exciting brands and interesting projects around. We’ve recently won some great new clients and are on the hunt for an experienced Digital Group Account Director to bring their A-game to our team.

We're looking for a proven suit and certified digi-native with relationship management and agency experience who is in tune with the digital world and enthusiastic about the possibilities it brings. You’re a fast learner, forward thinker and first mover who’s always one step ahead of the rest. You keep an eye on client needs and an ear to the ground in your markets. You're a relentless organisational mastermind and enthusiastic about all things digital, innovation and tech.

You’ll be a certified ace who can:

  • guide clients on a path of digital transformation with your unicorn-like mix of creative, analytical and relationship skills
  • effortlessly move between digital and (the occasional) traditional work streams
  • translate client goals into digital marketing communications
  • facilitate the evolution of team knowledge sharing (e.g. best practices, insight into new digital marketing techniques and technologies)
  • deliver excellence in service levels and relationship management
  • develop credible and effective senior management relationships with the ability to coach and advise clients
  • develop communications plans to meet clients’ business objectives
  • manage an account portfolio while being a trusted mentor for more junior suits

  • You'll need:

  • Minimum 10+ years' agency experience with at least 3 years' being directly involved with digital.
  • Have the ability to lead teams and manage projects across the business
  • Experience in digital platforms and best practices such as search, social, CX, technology (web and app development) from strategy to implementation
  • To be accurate, reliable and have an appetite for being accountable
  • Excellent written and communication skills
  • A high level of proactivity, attention to detail and strong leadership qualities
  • A service-oriented ethic and attitude

    TVC OF THE WEEK

    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.
