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.

    Benefits
    Well, there’s free lunch on Fridays and a chiller full of beer for your pleasure. Wine too. Not that that would influence your decision or anything.

    TVC OF THE WEEK

    Who's it for: Vogel's by Shine and Curious Films

    Why we like it: Achieving diversity in a campaign to truly reflect what a country looks like is no easy task, with many efforts coming across as contrived, fabricated efforts. However, this spot by Vogel's avoids all these pitfalls by bringing a collection of eight exceptional stories together around a single table. In doing so, the bread brand shows us what it means to be a Kiwi at a time when the country is changing. And it's a message that's resonated with consumers, with Facebook comments including remarks like "a truly beautiful advert", "the best advert I have seen in a very long time", "brilliant effort to illustrate how wonderful, unique and diverse NZers are" and "talk about bring a tear to your eye". 

    Who's it for: BMW by Flying Fish

    Why we like it: Recognise Karangahape Road and Fort Lane in this spot? No need for a double take, it's them. Not only does this spot showcase the new BMW, it also turns Auckland into a driver's dream, with empty streets and a long unoccupied straight across the Harbour Bridge. Even if it's not quite a true representation of the usually traffic-filled city that cars crawl through on most days, it's a great opportunity for our local city to be seen around the world as well as the production company Flying Fish.

    Who's it for:Whittaker's by Assignment Group.

    Why we like it: It's been a while since we've seen Nigella Lawson front a Whittaker's campaign and this time she's joined by British comedians Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley and Bill Bailey who all appear to fizz over the brand's new Destinations range. While Lawson has typically taken a sultry tone in Whittaker's spots, this time, she barely gets a word in as her friends take more of 'a children in a candy store' approach to building hype over flavours like 'Nicaraguan Heirloom Dark Chocolate', 'Italian Piedmont Hazelnut' and 'Caramelised Pecans, Waffle and Canadian Maple Syrup'.
