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: Fly Buys by Colenso BBDO

    Why we like it: While Fly Buys points are often a self-gratifying reward, this spot flips that idea on its head to celebrate the feeling you get when giving a gift. New Zealanders (and their dogs apparently) are a pretty generous bunch, which is why Fly Buys has launched the campaign to demonstrate how it can play a part in that giving.

    Who's it for: Men's Health Trust by Men's Health Trust 

    Why we like it: It's often said men struggle to talk about their physical and emotional wellbeing, but Men's Health Trust has managed to get 12 of them to sit down in front of the camera and open up. With the aim of getting men talking in order to reduce the statistic of one Kiwi man dying every three hours from a preventable cause, prominent New Zealanders (including Te Radar, Jack Tame and Selio Solomon) share their health related stories and talk about what it means to be a Kiwi bloke.

    Who's it for: McDonald's by DDB

    Why we like it: To announce that it's achieved 100 percent free-range egg use across its New Zealand restaurants, McDonald's has called-in the help of comedian Rhys Mathewson and a Robo Chicken. By sending the remote-controlled chicken into one of the farms supplying it with eggs, the spot is able to push McDonald's commitment to free range produce, as well as explain to viewers what the term actually means.

    Who's it for:  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword by Roadshow Films and Undertow Media

    Why we like it: Promoting an international blockbuster by changing up the trailer with a local twist isn't an approach we've seen before, but the use of WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker and UFC fighter Dan Hooker (in a second trailer) is sure to get some attention. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is about Arthur's journey to becoming a legendary fighter and leader, so who better to incorporate into that than Parker, a professional fighter, who speaks about how he overcame his own trials and pain.
