Dream job for a business-minded Senior Strategist ready to take a top-level leadership role.
For this role you must have solid advertising agency strategy/planning experience behind you, preferably working on blue-chip clients. You'll most likely have worked in traditional integrated/brand agencies in a pure strategy role (rather than be from a strategic-thinking client service background). You'll need to prove your experience via case studies and talking through your thought processes and results achieved.
You’ll be a curious problem-solver, thrive on seeking out the insights, be passionate about creativity, ambitious, outgoing, and have a strong sense of 'team'. Your focus will be on ensuring the best possible outcome for your agency and your clients.
This is a very senior role that may sit on the leadership team. You'll need to be confident, engaging, and highly relational with both colleagues and clients.
You’ll have energy to burn, and ready to work with a fast-paced, exciting, vibrant team.
An excellent level of verbal and written English is essential.
This agency is a large team with a great culture. Their ultra-trendy office is located in the heart of the Auckland CBD.
This agency is one of the most well-respected agencies in New Zealand. You'll be joining a progressing, future-thinking team.

Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ.
Really nice follow-up. People gonna love it.
Joyful? I'm struggling to find any. Did you mean to write 'awful'?
Great write-up, Carl. Bang on.
Yes it is in growth but significantly behind Speight's Summit val growth yoy
DB Export is about the only NZ brand beer in growth I believe....

Who’s it for: HelloFresh by Augusto
Why we like it: The latest player in the New Zealand meal-kit market, HelloFresh, has introduced itself by focussing on its customers and their feedback. The documentary style ad follows an unsuspecting customer Jaco while he’s cycling to work, in the park with his kids, or making his Hello Fresh decisions. A nice mix of humour and information about what the company offers.
Who’s it for: Warehouse Stationery by DDB
Why we like it: Warehouse Stationery takes the printed family mementoes to a new level with a visiting grandchild bombarding Ma with numerous gifts with their own face plastered on them. It definitely showcases the range of printing options – from cat bowls to fridge magnets to snow globes – to make your loved ones happy (and have a laugh) this Christmas. We’d like to see Ma feature in some more Warehouse Stationery ads.
Who’s it for: Barkers by Switch
Why we like it: While the beautiful shots of New Zealand would make anyone want to get up and adventure, we like that there’s a deeper meaning to this new campaign. With Barkers stepping up to be transparent about its environmental impact we’ll have to wait and see how this translates into action and change, but it’s a good place to start.
