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.
If you think this sounds like you, please click Apply via Email quoting reference #5588SP. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ.
Hey Fleur, so lovely to see a fellow agency leader be positive on this comments forum. Totally agree, it's always great when the good guys (this includes women) rise to the top. Hope all good with you, Dan
Excellent work. Hard to follow the Rhys Darby stuff, to try and keep some of that feeling but now look like a grown up telco. Nice balance here. 2nd Nature looks like one of those simple, long-term brand thoughts that ...
Great choice FCB. Blair is smart, collaborative and a genuinely great guy.
Boring and superficial, masquerading as insightful. Can we please stop making manifesto ads? It's not 1995 anymore.
And the first client leaves FCB...

Who is it for:2degrees by DDB
Why we like it: Nearly 10 years after its arrival in the market, 2degrees is making itself and its values known with a new brand campaign. While the services of the telco, including phone and internet, are intangible and encourage an esoteric approach to the marketing, this spot cleverly connects 2degrees with what it's all about: communication. With a mellow backing track and soft-voiced narrator, it explores all the different forms of communication while throwing in some humour like missing teeth and subtly calls out women for wearing activewear when visiting a cafe.
Who's it for: Samsung by Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish
Why we like it: Blink and you'll miss it. Samsung went bold to launch its new Galaxy S9 by placing 25 of the phones around a set that in five-seconds erupted into a display of colour and movement. The slow-motion video, the result of the display, highlights the camera as well as the technical nouse of Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish who bravely accepted the challenge and shot it all in front of a live audience.
Who's it for: Holden by Special Group
Why we like it: Faced with the challenge of people thinking its Australian factory was closing down, Holden's responded with this spot showing that's far from the case. As well as responding to the challenge at hand, the ad cleverly includes some promotion of specific car features and confirms the brand is here to stay by discussing what it has in store in the future.
Who's it for: Scapegrace by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: How do you change your name and make consumers aware of it? This spot by Scapegrace, formerly Rogue Society, does just that. It also helps customers accept the change by explaining the reason behind it, which in this case is a bonus lesson in international trade laws. StopPress' audience has responded well, with compliments for both the brand and agency and we agree it's a great piece of work.
