Account Manager -
Health & Wellness Agency
Your chance to advance your career in a nurturing, fun agency where you'll be exposed to a huge variety of projects, people and stimulation.
• Health & Wellness clients within a caring culture
• Creative, CBD agency without the crazy hours
• Room for growth and NZ’s best healthcare mentors
We're looking for one of two options. The first background option would be a talented advertising or design agency account manager with 2+ years experience who has all aspects of project management sussed and is keen to move to a smaller agency of intelligent, professional folk who like to make a difference.
Or the other background we’d be interested in is a healthcare or pharma sales rep or junior marketer who is keen to move to an agency environment while still being able to use the skills and experience you’ve learnt so far. That includes your excellent attention to detail and the ability to keep a project moving while keeping stakeholders informed.
Whichever your background, it’s important you’re personable, able to communicate well and build strong relationships with people even at the top level. You’re self motivated and self managing. That’s not to say you won’t be taught what’s needed along the way. In fact you’ll be under the wings of NZ’s most experienced Healthcare suits and strategists. But it’s important you have the attitude and motivation to embrace this opportunity and show you’re worth committing significant resources to.
This small specialist healthcare and wellness agency works on the kind of products and services that change the lives of many people and you will definitely get to feel you've made a contribution to this outcome.
It also happens to be New Zealand's most internationally awarded healthcare agency, and you will be encouraged to always look for the creative way of approaching each project and work closely with the creative team to get the best outcome. It's a stable, happy team and your days of ridiculous hours and changing managers will be behind you.
If you’re after a new role that will challenge you positively and keep that grey matter humming, apply now. For questions or a confidential chat, call Jo Bayley on 021 972 054.
Please note this role is only open to those already living in New Zealand and legally entitled to apply for permanent roles.
Classic Roy. Really nice.
Great insight. But long, boring, occasionally funny, agency-self-indulgent execution.
Couldn't happen to a nicer agency.
Disagree. But you could say that about True too. True who?
A great hype machine for sure.
Thanks for your comment, Colenso employee. The DB Export ad is decent, you're right. It's also the only decent thing Colenso has done in a looooooong time.

Who's it for: Bank of New Zealand by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: Despite the fact part of us feels like the occasional outrageous ice cream would equal a healthier savings account than the longtime money drain that is a dog, this ad is quite charming. Brands are waking up to the reality that dads do actually parent their children and it is always lovely to see on screen. With a sweet acoustic song, a cute little girl and a montage of wholesome activities, this has all the hallmarks of a bank ad, but it is a nice one.
Who's it for: Trade Me by VMLY&R
Why we like it: The road to hell may be paved with good intentions – but what else would we fill a garage with? You've got to store your junk somewhere and the beauty of hoarding useless items is that between the guilt over buying into materialism, there are generally moments of glorious delusion that you really will use that Ab King Pro – or treadmill – one day. Trade Me is positioning itself as the solution here and in terms of an enjoyable watch it works, but we're still not quite ready to part with our vintage roller skates just yet.
Who's it for: ASB Bank by True
Why we like it: A song, a dance, a poem, diversity – it's all good stuff! ASB utilises some genuine Kiwi talent in this spot and focuses on its inclusiveness towards all New Zealanders. It's a simple concept, but it is executed well and that makes it a delight to watch. To some, it may seem a bit on the nose but we'll never complain about celebrating diversity.
Who's it for: DB Export by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: This is a Valentine's Day ad like you've never seen before – and given the number of scenes that qualify as oversharing, you may never want to see again. Regardless, it's tongue-in-cheek and plays into DB Export's target audience's (presumed, although it is 2019) deepest desire: a relationship built on a shared love of beer. The song, 'I'm Drinking of You' is catchy, and, at times, genuinely funny so this bold move definitely gets a tick for being memorable.
