General Manager

  • Auckland - Parnell

Gladeye is an independent digital marketing and innovations agency. We combine creative thinking with the power of disruptive technology for domestic and global clients. After 11 years we’re ready for a dynamic General Manager to help us multiply the value we create for our clients and the world.

Our ideal candidate will hit the ground running, thanks to prior agency experience in operations or management. They’ll have a working knowledge of digital strategy and digital product design processes, and an appreciation of the technology and development teams and systems required to make things work. They’ll also understand the service nature of an agency business, and will be as comfortable with clients as they are with internal staff.

We’re an eclectic mix of designers and developers who share a strong culture and a set of values we regard as sacrosanct: Integrity; Empowerment of Our People; Excellence; and Originality. We share lunch on Fridays and the rest of the week we work on the stuff we love. We’re looking for someone to embrace this culture and help us focus our energies on building new value into both the work and the business.

The General Manager is accountable to the CEO and the board of directors. The GM will contribute to, interpret and execute the company’s vision. They’ll manage day-to-day operations across service, creative, technology and design, to grow revenue and profitability in the business, while maintaining a high quality of work, staff and client satisfaction. The role includes both internal, operational responsibilities as well as external, client-facing responsibilities.

Who's it for: Air New Zealand by True

Why we like it: With all the attention the plant-based Impossible Burger has been getting in the media lately, the border security officer's assessment it being a celebrity is not unjustified. It's been a controversial arrival, with acting prime minister Winston Peters and former primary industries minister Nathan Guy calling out the airline for not promoting local meat, while others have praised it for the vegetarian-friendly addition. For those who haven't caught up on the news, alongside some dad jokes about spreading buns and meaty looking plants, the ad does a good job of explaining Air New Zealand's new meat-free meal.

Who's it for: Tourism New Zealand by Augusto

Why we like it: Like previous tourism campaigns New Zealand's beautiful landscapes are once again on show but this spot has a point of difference as it also highlights Kiwi's welcoming nature. From a simple "hi" as people pass on a track to a "kia ora" when walking on the beach, the video journeys across the country with visitors making themselves at home as it goes. And for those of us watching from New Zealand it makes us feel proud to be a Kiwi.

Who's it for:Lightbox NZ by Shine

Why we like it: We all know moths are attracted to the light, but who knew they are eager movie watches. Dressing humans as moths to crash a couple's quiet night in with a film is certainly a unique, and kind of creepy, approach for Lightbox to take to promote its movie offering but it got us talking.
