Intermediate Account Manager

  • Auckland - Parnell

If you have 4+ years experience in an advertising or design agency but want more hands-on client interaction and ownership of projects, read on...

• Small, friendly and successful design studio
• Great mentor and supportive team
• Work/life balance a reality

This small brand design agency based in Parnell is after a solid pair of hands to manage day to day projects from client briefs through to delivery. For three days a week you'll be working closely with a senior account director, but you'll have your own clients and projects to take ownership of. However she's there for advice and training to ensure you continue to develop your skillset. On the other two days you will happily keep projects flowing and respond to all client and team queries.

You'll already have mastered attention to detail and production briefs and will be developing your ability to write creative briefs with the input of a strategist. While packaging experience would be a plus, it's certainly not necessary as we are happy to look at your experience with a wide scope. That's because the essential aspects for this role are your positive personality, your communication skills and your proven ability to take those through to successful client relationships and happy team mates.

Someone who's still after the agency 'social scene' won't be appropriate for this studio, but if you're over the crazy agency hours and unrealistic pace, and you're looking for a team that still has high expectations but offers the support and skills to achieve them, then do apply. This role will ideally be starting mid June so get on to it!

If you have 4+ years agency experience, please send your CV to or, for a confidential chat, call Jo on 021 972 054.

Please note this role is only open to those with fluent English - both written and verbal, as well as already living in NZ and visas in place to legally apply for permanent roles.

Who's it for: Got A Trade by Ogilvy NZ

Why we like it: Got A Trade has gone down a clever route with its latest campaign by disguising the ad as a music video. Featuring New Zealand and Australian rock royalty – the offspring of Neil Finn and Jimmy Barnes – the highlight is the moving set pieces made by the real-life apprentices and trainees. A fun, inventive and relatable spot. 

Who's it for: The Warehouse by DDB New Zealand

Why we like it: The Warehouse gets the right recipe with its campaign for Kiwi Scrabble – you can’t go wrong with much-loved Kiwi celebrities chef/author Jo Seagar and boxer David Tua. In the spot Seagar gives it her all, igniting the age-old debate over who is the rightful owner of the pavlova – New Zealand or Australia. It’s funny and fresh and will get you craving a piece of pav. 

Who's it for: Air New Zealand 

Why we like it: Babies are in the news at the moment (looking at you Meghan and Harry) and while Air New Zealand’s latest campaign predates the Royal announcement, who can go past cute, smiley cherubs. While most of the babes are happy in the Skycouch, it’s nice to see a few tears which are definitely a reality for parents out there.
