Account Executive / Account Manager | PR

  • Auckland Central

A great opportunity to grow your PR career within the tech and B2B space PLUS develop an interest in content creation.

This is a unique hybrid role of junior PR Publicist (AE, Senior AE or AM level) and content creator, where you'll develop skills in filming and editing (photography and video). You don't need to know video production already, but you do need to have an interest and aptitude to learn quickly.

Ideally, you'll already have some PR experience, but grads will also be considered. A relevant comms qualification is preferred.

Your PR day-to-day will involve writing press releases (though not a lot); proactive media outreach; product service launches; thought leadership; social media; and an element of reporting. Media relations will be around 60% of the role. Some copywriting will be required (short case studies, press releases, opinion pieces).

This agency specialises in working with tech and B2B clients (consumer and corporate), with some well-known and exciting clients. You don't have to be a tech-head, but you do have to be able to appreciate this type of client.

Ideal qualities for the role: confident; articulate; relationship builder; likes an intellectual challenge; curious about clients/work/life; able to contribute rather than take.
You must have an extremely high level of written and spoken English, using clear business language. You must be fluent and persuasive.

This is a small, but growing PR agency based in the heart of the Auckland CBD. The office is colourful, friendly, peaceful and quiet.

You'll be reporting directly to the Director and there will be ample opportunity for mentoring and career progression.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ.

Who’s it for: McDonald's by DDB 

Why we like it: Just about everybody will be able to relate to waking up the morning after the night before, and it's not a pretty sight. The latest McDonald's campaign portrays the ease at which delivery service Uber Eats can come to your rescue in times of need perfectly, with a knight-in-shining McDonald's livery (although it seems unlikely an Uber driver would wear that) dropping off your McMuffin straight to your door.  

Who’s it for: TAB by VMLY&R

Why we like it: It's summer and everyone's amped for the continuing summer of sport schedule, not least tennis fans eagerly awaiting the make-or-break news from Roger Federer at this year's Australian Open. The TAB has tapped into the anticipation nicely with this spot, relating the tennis to the launch of new live betting capabilities.   

Who’s it for: Lotto NZ by DDB

Why we like it: A favourite from 2018 is back to welcome the already work weary back to reality – with the two protagonists of Lotto's armoured truck campaign gazing happily out to sea from their flash campervan. No doubt the first week back at work alone is enough to inspire a fair few to buy a Lotto ticket, but this is a nice, topical ad for the start of the year.

Who’s it for: Air New Zealand by True

Why we like it: It seems unfair that one tiny kiwi with no limbs to squeeze into a shrinking economy seat gets to try out all seat options for mid-haul travel, but at least Pete seems like a personable guy. Pitched to get more Singaporean tourists onto our shores, the campaign does show New Zealand bathed in a lovely golden light that's sure to get the tourists flocking.  

Who’s it for:  Warehouse Stationery by DDB

Why we like it: If we think going back to work is bad, it's nothing compared to the dread a child feels when an 'endless summer' turns into back-to-school-specials. But this lighthearted campaign from Warehouse Stationery injects some humour into the difficult time year, with an 'undercover student' gathering pertinent intelligence about the nature of school stationery from primary school students.
