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: Ecostore by DDB

    Why we like it: For its first brand campaign, Ecostore is making itself heard with a powerful message about the future that will have the audience questioning their outlook. As a brand that promotes itself as being safe for consumers and the world they live in, examining the dichotomy between the optimism of youth and the pessimism of the older generation shows our environment doesn't have to be set for a future of melted ice caps and deforestation. There is hope out there and clearly, Ecostore wants to be apart of it.

    Who's it for: Flick Electric by Special Ad Service

    Why we like it: While many people have their aha moments in the shower or while exercising, others, according to Flick Electric, have them while performing taxidermy on birds. It may be an odd image for a power company, but the tongue-in-cheek approach shows the company is willing to have a bit of fun as it goes about recruiting new customers. 

    Who's it for: Jockey New Zealand by Parlour

    Why we like it: It's hard to ignore the obvious appeal of seeing the All Blacks strip down to their Jockeys for the entirety of the video and for those who aren't as fazed by what lies beneath the black jersey, it's an insight into what the boys get up to off the field. Apparently, Anton Lienert Brown enjoys peanut butter on toast and sailing. And while special guest and former Shortland Street star Will Hall doesn't strip down completely, a special mention has to be given to his bravery to sit alongside the undressed All Blacks in just Jockeys and a robe.
