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:Headfirst 

    Why we like it: On the field, New Zealand's rugby stars are seen as strong characters who are immune to mental illness. However, this clip and the wider Headfirst work breaks that stereotype down, showing the players we cheer for are just like us and they're here to help. Last week, Jono Pryor received huge praise for his mention of mental illness at the end of Jono and Ben and we hope this spot generates the same kind of buzz.

    Who's it for: Pedigree by Colenso BBDO

    Why we like it: University has just started and those who graduated last year are heading off on OEs or entering the work force, leaving many parents childless. Pedigree wants to make the most of that by filling these empty nests with rescue dogs. The campaign may joke about how parents should replace their kids with a canine, but underneath there's a serious message about rehoming the thousands of dogs that have been rescued from abuse and neglect.

    Who's it for:G-Shock New Zealand by James Polhill and Fish & Clips

    Why we like it: New Zealand rugby fans might think they know Julian Savea, but this spot goes behind the scenes of a rugby game to see what motivates him to do his best. By getting up close and personal with him, it shows the hard work involved in reaching the top. The story it tells is a great example of how a campaign can engage the audience before revealing the brand and product.
