Client Engagement Partner

  • Christchurch

Are you known for building deep and trusted relationships with your clients?

Libby & Ben is a brand solutions agency. We work with brands to develop or enhance their identities and communications by crafting solutions for our clients that connect deeply with their customers. With established studios in Auckland and Christchurch, it’s an exciting time to be part of our vision to become New Zealand’s most engaged brand partner.

In this newly created role, you will be responsible for building and enhancing trusted relationships across our growing client base. There’s more to this role than your typical account management function, in that you will need to learn about our wide variety of clients from the inside out, support their ambitions and be empowered to make this position your own.

Your day-to-day focus will be supporting our clients and translating their requirements back into our studio and creative team. Ensuring the final solution you share back exceeds their expectations.

You will have a talent for spotting opportunities that develop true partnerships with our clients versus being a transactional supplier, where we help grow their business alongside ours.

In addition to an experienced background of working in creative agencies, your reputation will be one of an expert listener and communicator. You will aim to hit the mark first time when balancing client expectations with creative opportunity, with the goal to deliver solutions that are creatively excellent but ensure commercial outcomes.

You will have outstanding interpersonal skills and will ideally have a strong local network. This is an opportunity for you to become part of an agency that has built a very strong reputation in Canterbury over the past six years. We are not complacent about what we have achieved, instead we have a clear vision and belief of what we can achieve in the future. As a growing business, you will want to grow with us and be supported by an encouraging environment where we celebrate success along the journey.

Who's it for:  Chorus NZ by Saatchi & Saatchi

Why we like it: First thoughts on this were what on Earth is that woman making? Why does it wobble? Is this some sort of throwback to the dark ages (1950s-1960s) when bored, oppressed housewives got revenge on their oppressors (husbands, society in general) by enclosing food that had no purpose being there in gelatin? Are we supposed to believe this woman is a genius? It turns out context is key and she's Jessica Mentis – a jelly genius. We will allow it. Besides, celebrating excellence, no matter how niche, is always a bit goosebumps-inducing.

Who's it for: Trade Me by Wrestler

Why we like it: Oh to be 20 again. Life is filled with so much potential and possibility at 20. Regrettably, the team here at StopPress didn't have the foresight in 1999 to create our own eBay-style website that would revolutionise the way New Zealanders shop (the bounds of primary school be damned!), so our website is not celebrating 20 years in business this year, but we will not begrudge Trade Me this celebration. It is well-earned. Also, how nice does Wellington look in this ad? You really can't beat it on a good day.

Who's it for: Champions for Change/Global Women by Saatchi & Saatchi

Why we like it: We like this campaign. It's like they've got down to a bigot's eye-height and explained things in simple English so it finally infiltrates their teeny-tiny brains. In all seriousness though, we've all got unconscious bias hidden somewhere (and generally bigots are a lot more conscious about their many, many biases), and it's no longer an excuse to let that bias impact on work decisions. The moral of this story is we all have room for self-reflection: Does everyone in my team look like me? Do I make gender-related jokes? etc etc. Just check yourself, and then stop yourself – it's not that hard.
