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.

Most entertaining ad the warehouse has done in a very long time!
