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: HelloFresh by Augusto

Why we like it: The latest player in the New Zealand meal-kit market, HelloFresh, has introduced itself by focussing on its customers and their feedback. The documentary style ad follows an unsuspecting customer Jaco while he’s cycling to work, in the park with his kids, or making his Hello Fresh decisions. A nice mix of humour and information about what the company offers.

Who’s it for: Warehouse Stationery by DDB 

Why we like it: Warehouse Stationery takes the printed family mementoes to a new level with a visiting grandchild bombarding Ma with numerous gifts with their own face plastered on them. It definitely showcases the range of printing options  – from cat bowls to fridge magnets to snow globes – to make your loved ones happy (and have a laugh) this Christmas. We’d like to see Ma feature in some more Warehouse Stationery ads.

Who’s it for: Barkers by Switch

Why we like it: While the beautiful shots of New Zealand would make anyone want to get up and adventure, we like that there’s a deeper meaning to this new campaign. With Barkers stepping up to be transparent about its environmental impact we’ll have to wait and see how this translates into action and change, but it’s a good place to start.
