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: ASB by With Collective

    Why we like it: Slightly dry humour aside, ASB's tried something a little different with its new agency With Collective. Rachel House, from Hunt for the Wilderpeople, owns the role of True Rewarden and lends her comedic tone to a script that manages to educate the audience about True Rewards alongside the one-liners. It's too early to tell if the True Rewards character becomes as iconic as Goldstein but we hope she sticks around for a few more spots at least.

    Who's it for: Hallenstein Brothers

    Why we like it: Just in case you're invited to a black-tie event in Botswana, Hallenstein Brothers has your back. This spot is the latest in a video series that's taken suits where no other suits have been before, including the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and shark-infested waters, and in return stirred up jealousy among viewers who wish they could be a model for the clothing brand. And if the beautifully shot African wildlife is not enough, the song Kingdom Come makes for great listening and we're sure the band, Braves, will get a lot of attention from Hallenstein's shout out to them on Facebook.

    Who's it for: Les Mills Fight Night by Media Design School students

    Why we like it: The annual Les Mills Fight Night was last week and this year Media Design School students made no secret of the fact Cure Kids needs donations to fund its research. Adding impact to the already gripping images of fighters securing coins to their fists is the fact that the first one shown is a father to a sick child. His appearance exemplifies the fact that despite not being in the ring, parents are fighting for the kids every day. The final blow to the heartstrings is the inclusion of Eva, a young girl with a rare condition that's endangering her life.
