Senior Account Manager

  • Auckland - Britomart

You might have seen us around. We’re Young+Shand: next-level digi agency and the biggest indie in NZ.
In six short years we’ve grown from just two guys and a dream to an agency of 50+ people working on some of the most exciting brands and interesting projects around.

We’ve recently won some great new clients and are on the hunt for an experienced Senior Account Manager to bring their A-game to our team. A suitable suit would be a forward-thinking-relationship-managing-organisational-team-leading-enthusiastic-mastermind who has an interest in digital things. A digital unicorn if you will.

Your day to day will likely involve:

  • Guiding and coaching clients on a path of digital greatness.
  • Effortlessly moving between digital and (the occasional) traditional work streams.
  • Translating client speak into digital real world communications.
  • Recalling numbers off the top of your head about forecasts, financial reporting, invoicing and risk management. Real fun stuff that’ll make
    you seem impressive to others.
  • Owning the detail and being accountable for the lifecycle of a whole project.
  • Developing credible and effective internal and external relationships.
  • Mentoring and guiding junior team members if required.

    Requirements:

  • Minimum 5 years agency experience, with at least 3 of those years being involved in digital.
  • Experience across digital platforms and best practices such as search, social, technology (web and app development), from strategy to implementation.
  • A successful track record of building client relationships.
  • Excellent written and communication skills.
  • Capable of interacting with clients at senior levels.
  • Proactive with excellent attention to detail.
  • A great work ethic and attitude.
  • Above all you’ll have a mix of creative, analytical and relationship skills.

    TVC OF THE WEEK

    Who’s it for: Sky by DDB

    Why we like it: What first appears to be the start of a drama turns out to be a campaign promoting Sky's drama line-up. The calibre of the acting (Hacksaw Ridge’s Tyler Coppin and Top of the Lakes’ Alison Bruce), the director (Academy Award nominee Derin Seale) and minimal use of lighting lends itself to a sophisticated and suspenseful ad you wish was a series on its own. It's also a  great use of breaking through the fourth estate with the cheating husband describing what’s happening to get people thinking about the husband and wife's relationship as well as the genre in general.

    Who’s it for: Lightbox by Spark PR & Activate

    Why we like it: We like things with a New Zealand twist and this one playing on American drama Suits brings big laughs with its deft touch of Kiwi awkwardness. The 80s mise-en-scene, mundane jobs and forced office comradery - far from the polished and exciting drama of the proper Suits - is a fun and funny way to introduce the newest season. 

    Who’s it for: Survivor New Zealand by TVNZ

    Why we like it: Brandishing blood and mud, Survivor New Zealand is back for round two in northern Thailand. While the scenery looks idyllic, it's set to be an intense and exciting time if the promotional video is anything to go by, with mud wrestling, tears, dubious tactics from participants, success and disappointments galore on show. While Survivor has been reproduced many times around the world, local faces and scraps should bring the viewers onboard for another reality competition.
