We're looking for a Senior Creative Team to join NZ's number 1 advertising agency.
You'll have the privilege of working across the various Colenso accounts such as Fonterra, Pedigree, BNZ, Visa and DB to name a few.
So, who are we after?
As a Senior Creative Team, you will have the ability to lead projects, have strategic conversations with clients, sell work and see the big picture.
You will inspire and run junior teams to deliver projects; guiding them and helping them to lift the work to the next level. Around ideas and craft.
This role will require you to be responsible for quality creative output, and this will be judged by creative awards, creative rankings and effectiveness.
We're looking for a natural relationship builder with our clients, and doing this by making yourself available to clients, by demonstrating strategic understanding of our client's business issues and above all, by delivering effective creative work.
Working directly into the CD's & ECD's, a senior creative will often be expected to collaborate with discipline specific Creative Heads when projects or briefs require.
What makes this role unique?
You will have the opportunity to work across the various accounts Colenso holds, which means you will be able to work on challenging creative projects, really focus on the craft and team up the most awarded creatives in the industry. Outwardly we are a large established agency, but we always work in close cohesion with each other, without being bogged down by a tall hierarchy and status quo.
This role is for you if you have a hunger to produce beautifully crafted and exceptional creative work, achieve outstanding business results for our clients, and be a vision of change in an evolving creative environment.
How would we describe ourselves?
Colenso is an award-winning agency and part of the Clemenger Group - New Zealand's largest and most successful group of advertising creative communication companies.
We have 8 agencies in New Zealand and 16 in Australia. BBDO was named Network of the year (for the 4th year in a row) and Colenso has just been named #10 Agency in the world!
26% of the shares are owned by staff and we are 100% locally managed. We are in the BBDO network which is the world's most effective creative network (290 offices - 90 countries - 17,000+ staff). This means you are part of a highly regarded global network that has local focus and truly values their staff.
We encourage a good work-life balance and support that through staff initiatives and programmes. This includes massages, car cleaning, and free fruit and snacks. Culture and people are our focus and as such we like to enjoy the company of the people we work with.

Isn't the whole point of this article to parody exactly that? I.e. the idea that many in the industry don't know what they're doing, which leads to all the flashy/fishy practices described in the article?
Not wanted in that agency were you? Cheer up.
Awful. Badly written, terribly made, no idea. I have no idea why you would PR this level of work.
Agency Wnk. The cold hard experience of being agencyside provides an understanding that most staffers even C level ad-types have no clue what they're doing.
It's good that. …and then there's the D.I.Y. client - who'll cobble it together with a host of bit players from social media mavens to content creators with iPhone Xs (seriously, I listened to a client bang on recently about ...

Who’s it for: WorkSafe by Assignment Group.
Why we like it: Hilarious but serious, this ad from WorkSafe elicits both laughter and pensive thought as fictional commentators ‘Pat Silverwood’ and ‘Joe Munro’ give a play-by-play of workers actions. And while not all workplaces feature a pair of commentators armed with mics to make themselves heard, it's hoped the enjoyable campaign that will encourage Kiwis to ‘Use Your Mouth’ and speak up in the workplace.
Who’s it for: Icebreaker by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: Motion Sickness has blended storytelling with an ad in this beautifully shot video for Icebreaker. While the connection with Icebreaker isn't obvious from the start, as Riley Elliott's mulls over what makes him so passionate about sharks, we learn a lesson about facing and embracing fear—and it's one that suits the nature of the outdoor adventure brand.
Who’s it for: G.J. Gardner Homes by 99
Why we like it: Personalising a large company like G.J. Gardner Homes can be tough. But the company has done a nice job of giving local workers a face. Going from Queenstown to the Manawatu, franchisees speak about themselves, how they work and how they are involved with, and support, the local community around them. It's a good way to get to know those who are responsible for bringing to life the homes for G.J. customers.
