Wanted: Intermediate Creative Team feat. mad digi skills.

  • Auckland - Auckland CBD

Who we are:
Hi there. You might have seen us around. We’re Young+Shand. Auckland-based digital ad agency and NZ’s largest indie. We’re a unique mix of creatives, technologists, suits and digital media wizards, which means we get the digital space in a way most agencies only pretend to. Our creative dept is made up of 25 supremely talented people including copywriters, art directors, digi designers, and front and back end devs. On top of that we also have a fulltime director of photography and a motion graphics animator, all led by a highly experienced and internationally awarded CD. Making awesome ideas happen is what we do. What we need is a super talented creative team to jump onboard and add their awesomeness to ours.

Who you are:

  • A creative team with at least 3 years of fulltime agency experience under your belt.
  • You want to push the creative boat out in the digital space and you have a portfolio of work that proves it (if you want to make TV ads, we’re not for you).
  • You’re genuine content consumers, a hyperactive social media users and certified memeologists.
  • Collaborating closely with other creatives including designers and developers is not a problem, in fact you think it’s fun.
  • You’ve already picked up the odd shiny trophy or two for some of your work and are champing at the bit to pick up a few more.
  • And you’ll be 'glass half full’ kind of people because we are as an agency.

  • Stuff you get when you work with us:
    You’ll work with (and learn from) one of the biggest, brightest and most diverse creative teams in the country. And you’ll get opportunities, both big and small, across Young+Shand’s entire client roster (no pigeon holes here). Brands like Steinlager, Speights, Mac’s, Johnnie Walker, NZ Blood, V and 2degrees just to name a few. We’re centrally located in Britomart, which puts you in the centre of everything. Plus, along with chance to do the best work of your career, you’ll also get a life outside of work - sure, we work as hard as anyone, but we also understand the meaning of work/life balance.

    PS. There’s free lunch on Fridays and a chiller full of beer for your pleasure… not that that would influence your decision or anything.

    TVC OF THE WEEK

    Who's it for: Rebel Sport by Ogilvy

    Why we like it: The 'What's Your Why' campaign has delivered a number of feels and inspirational stories so far and World Champion swimmer Sophie Pascoe's is no different. Learning of her accident as a child and how she proceeded to channel all her energy into swimming, we gain an understanding of the woman who many of us have watched on the screen and we have no doubt the last lines "today, your dad doesn't see his broken little girl. Today, he sees a world champion," will see tears well in the eyes of many dads around the country.

    Who's it for: New Zealand Council of Trade Unions by Double Denim

    Why we like it: Beginning with a trip down memory lane to show how far New Zealand has come, all feeling of achievement come to a halt when we're reminded the Equal Pay Act of 1972 is yet to come to fruition. It's a good way to provoke thought while the following musical spectacle shows women coming together to take a stand. Time will tell if it's enough to get all New Zealanders to pay attention to the 'pay the sisters the same as the misters' message.

    Who's it for: Niue Tourism by Run

    Why we like it: At one point in the video, the female voiceover says "the world looks the other way and everything stands still," and that's how this ad makes you feel. The slow moving drone and bold colours of water and forest draw attention, while slowly revealing the woman—we assume to be the voiceover—sitting on the beach. It's a scene that certainly makes air conditioned office air taste pretty average.
