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: Super Rugby by Sugar & Partners

Why we like it: Super Rugby is typically a fast-paced game, but to promote the season Sugar & Partners have slowed down the action to ensure audiences don't miss a thing. Despite the change of pace, the excited fans jumping around, motocross rider and confetti ensure the campaign continues to build on the hype generated in previous campaigns. The music by local artist Kings also helps to provide energy—did you spot him in the crowd?

Who's it for:The New Zealand Olympic Committee by Saatchi & Saatchi

Why we like it: Competing on a global stage is no easy feat, and that's before cold temperatures, wind and snow are added. This campaign takes New Zealanders behind the scenes of the Winter Olympics to see what it takes get there and hopefully win a medal. In this particular video, featuring Janina Kuzma, the choice to not add music and leave the wind as the only sound emphasises the harsh conditions she trains in and her dedication to the sport.

Who's it for: Kiwibank by Hello

Why we like it: Kiwibank is bidding farewell to student giveaways and acknowledging the demographic is not only motivated by freebies. Instead, this campaign, featuring Shortland Street's Jayden Daniels, ties into the brand's wider campaigns about investing in a locally owned bank. And if that message alone isn't enough to make students sit up and listen, the inclusion of Daniels taking his shirt off is sure to generate some attention.
