In a rapidly digitalising communications landscape, clients rely on their agencies to provide sound strategic advice and dynamic service that delivers tangible results to their business.

Develop and maintain exemplary client relationships, taking every opportunity to expand their knowledge of, and appreciation for the digital landscape.
Deliver work and service to agreed client scope and ensure no under-servicing occurs.
Develop and maintain collaborative, constructive relationships with external partners (creative agencies, media owners) where appropriate.
Work with the Digital Director to develop and deliver new initiatives to clients, looking for proactive 'pioneering' digital opportunities.
Take ownership of campaign digital budget management for clients within their portfolio.
Coaching, mentoring and upskilling direct report(s), with ongoing constructive feedback, encouragement and recognition.

The Fun Stuff:
We have a culture that we're very proud of over here in Mt Eden too, with lots of initiatives that create banter and tie people together! The hours of the role are 8.30am - 5.30pm with one hour for lunch. We have a Healthy Breakfast Range you can enjoy, we offer Birthday Leave, Summer/Winter half days, and have a whole raft of other fun things! OMD has also won Campaign Australia/New Zealand Agency of the Year 2015 and 2016 for our great work as a team and won the Cannes Lions 2017 Media Network of the Year, so it's an exciting time to join with many new opportunities moving forward.

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.
