Smart Auckland Media Agency needs a Smart Digital Account Director.
This is a great opportunity for a 2017 refresh...
You live and breathe digital in all its changing forms… you pride yourself in staying in touch with latest developments and you thrive on the challenge of bringing clients with you as they navigate the digital highway… and don’t mind a bit of hand-holding along the way.
You will have 5 or more years in Digital planning and buying and have a passion for technology and an eye for data, along with a desire to continually innovate, experiment and demonstrate strong strategic skills. Ideally you will already be working with large client budgets and possess great relationship skills, both internally and externally.
In keeping with your seniority, experience with digital media formats and metrics, campaign set-up, tracking capabilities, reporting and evaluation are second nature. You will be a great presenter and enjoy the cut-and-thrust of media negotiations at a senior level.
The role is for a Digital Director with responsibility for digital delivery across a blue-chip account group – FMCG, Automotive, Retail and Beverages. The role reports to the Head of Digital and will be responsible for a planning and buying group across your client base. The agency, situated in the fringe of the CBD business district, whilst offering an integrated media environment, recognises that digital has to be at the heart of strategic thinking. This is a great opportunity to be along for the digital ride, working in an exciting and vibrant environment that will feed your passion for all-things digital. The agency has direct access into a strong trading arm which will enhance your negotiation skills and is part of a wider global group with the opportunity for further growth.
If you want to be part of this vibrant media agency environment, send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting Ref. 5007SP

HP has the best security I have ever seen, well done.........
Congratulations, Nigel! All the best - I'm sure it will be an exciting move for you and OMD.
Wow, worst ad i've seen in a looong time. Actually made me cringe.
Well done Nigel, energy and fun and success abounds.
And the race to the bottom continues for media agencies.
Tone deaf, out of touch, and choosing not to address a single issue that matters. Yep, this is an advertisement for the National party all right.

Who's it for: Vogel's by Shine and Curious Films
Why we like it: Achieving diversity in a campaign to truly reflect what a country looks like is no easy task, with many efforts coming across as contrived, fabricated efforts. However, this spot by Vogel's avoids all these pitfalls by bringing a collection of eight exceptional stories together around a single table. In doing so, the bread brand shows us what it means to be a Kiwi at a time when the country is changing. And it's a message that's resonated with consumers, with Facebook comments including remarks like "a truly beautiful advert", "the best advert I have seen in a very long time", "brilliant effort to illustrate how wonderful, unique and diverse NZers are" and "talk about bring a tear to your eye".
Who's it for: BMW by Flying Fish
Why we like it: Recognise Karangahape Road and Fort Lane in this spot? No need for a double take, it's them. Not only does this spot showcase the new BMW, it also turns Auckland into a driver's dream, with empty streets and a long unoccupied straight across the Harbour Bridge. Even if it's not quite a true representation of the usually traffic-filled city that cars crawl through on most days, it's a great opportunity for our local city to be seen around the world as well as the production company Flying Fish.
Who's it for:Whittaker's by Assignment Group.
Why we like it: It's been a while since we've seen Nigella Lawson front a Whittaker's campaign and this time she's joined by British comedians Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley and Bill Bailey who all appear to fizz over the brand's new Destinations range. While Lawson has typically taken a sultry tone in Whittaker's spots, this time, she barely gets a word in as her friends take more of 'a children in a candy store' approach to building hype over flavours like 'Nicaraguan Heirloom Dark Chocolate', 'Italian Piedmont Hazelnut' and 'Caramelised Pecans, Waffle and Canadian Maple Syrup'.
