Are you a dynamic Senior Account Director with a background in CRM or direct marketing? This is your chance to work on one of NZ’s most recognised, blue-chip brands!
You'll ideally have significant experience working within the DM space and will possess excellent knowledge of highly-targeted, database-driven marketing, consumer insights, and CRM strategies.
You'll be working on a single, high profile account, and it would help if you've worked with any of the following type of clients: telco, banking, high technology, or similar. Alternatively, you could be from a digital/data background, used to dealing with major campaigns for top-tier clients.
The client is a leading brand with a huge customer base, perfect for delivering the very best customer comms. They are collaborative and highly engaged with the agency.
You'll lead CRM, digital, and integrated strategies; challenge your client to innovate with their customer comms; ensure all campaigns resonate with the brand's existing customers; and translate campaign learnings to new strategy.
You will be a confident leader who has proven experience managing senior relationships with clients and internal teams, and delivering creative solutions within a challenging, fast-paced environment. You’ll be a dynamo at building strong internal relationships with your own team, as well as with planners and creatives. You’ll be used to working with direct reports (you'll have four or five) and will bring your collaborative approach to working to this busy team.
And, on top of that, you'll be a super-nice person who your clients and colleagues love to work with!
This is a truly enviable role for a top suit to join a thriving team based in central Auckland, and be part of a larger international, award-winning group. The culture is vibrant, fun and positive.

Just say 'good people', mate.
I like a big money-grabber acknowledging what we're up to and relegating their part to letting us get on with it.
Spark just did a VO montage.
I think we all can agree that if StopPress actually applied some rigour around its 'Ads Of The Week' decision making rather than just giving it to any old brand with a new ad (ahem, I'm talking to you Holden) ...
Yeah, the use of a montage, loosely drawn together by a VO is super grown-up. And "long-term" is right - Spark were doing them back when they were still called Telecom.
Hey Fleur, so lovely to see a fellow agency leader be positive on this comments forum. Totally agree, it's always great when the good guys (this includes women) rise to the top. Hope all good with you, Dan

Who is it for:2degrees by DDB
Why we like it: Nearly 10 years after its arrival in the market, 2degrees is making itself and its values known with a new brand campaign. While the services of the telco, including phone and internet, are intangible and encourage an esoteric approach to the marketing, this spot cleverly connects 2degrees with what it's all about: communication. With a mellow backing track and soft-voiced narrator, it explores all the different forms of communication while throwing in some humour like missing teeth and subtly calls out women for wearing activewear when visiting a cafe.
Who's it for: Samsung by Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish
Why we like it: Blink and you'll miss it. Samsung went bold to launch its new Galaxy S9 by placing 25 of the phones around a set that in five-seconds erupted into a display of colour and movement. The slow-motion video, the result of the display, highlights the camera as well as the technical nouse of Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish who bravely accepted the challenge and shot it all in front of a live audience.
Who's it for: Holden by Special Group
Why we like it: Faced with the challenge of people thinking its Australian factory was closing down, Holden's responded with this spot showing that's far from the case. As well as responding to the challenge at hand, the ad cleverly includes some promotion of specific car features and confirms the brand is here to stay by discussing what it has in store in the future.
Who's it for: Scapegrace by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: How do you change your name and make consumers aware of it? This spot by Scapegrace, formerly Rogue Society, does just that. It also helps customers accept the change by explaining the reason behind it, which in this case is a bonus lesson in international trade laws. StopPress' audience has responded well, with compliments for both the brand and agency and we agree it's a great piece of work.
