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: Fly Buys by Colenso BBDO

    Why we like it: While Fly Buys points are often a self-gratifying reward, this spot flips that idea on its head to celebrate the feeling you get when giving a gift. New Zealanders (and their dogs apparently) are a pretty generous bunch, which is why Fly Buys has launched the campaign to demonstrate how it can play a part in that giving.

    Who's it for: Men's Health Trust by Men's Health Trust 

    Why we like it: It's often said men struggle to talk about their physical and emotional wellbeing, but Men's Health Trust has managed to get 12 of them to sit down in front of the camera and open up. With the aim of getting men talking in order to reduce the statistic of one Kiwi man dying every three hours from a preventable cause, prominent New Zealanders (including Te Radar, Jack Tame and Selio Solomon) share their health related stories and talk about what it means to be a Kiwi bloke.

    Who's it for: McDonald's by DDB

    Why we like it: To announce that it's achieved 100 percent free-range egg use across its New Zealand restaurants, McDonald's has called-in the help of comedian Rhys Mathewson and a Robo Chicken. By sending the remote-controlled chicken into one of the farms supplying it with eggs, the spot is able to push McDonald's commitment to free range produce, as well as explain to viewers what the term actually means.

    Who's it for:  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword by Roadshow Films and Undertow Media

    Why we like it: Promoting an international blockbuster by changing up the trailer with a local twist isn't an approach we've seen before, but the use of WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker and UFC fighter Dan Hooker (in a second trailer) is sure to get some attention. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is about Arthur's journey to becoming a legendary fighter and leader, so who better to incorporate into that than Parker, a professional fighter, who speaks about how he overcame his own trials and pain.
