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: ANZ by TBWA

Why we like it: It somewhat seems like ANZ is taking the credit for this bee's hard-working life. She's so versatile in her outputs, any workplace would certainly be lucky to have her. This worker bee doesn't just focus her talents on pollinating plants and making honey, she oversees the business end-to-end. From portraiture and packaging to serving and supervising non-edible alternative uses for her product – she's got you covered.

Who's it for: Queenstown Airport Corporation by Shotover Media

Why we like it: These days, air travel is an unavoidable modern drag peppered with delays, strict security and overpopulated airports. But there was a time when half the fun really was getting there and the very act of taking to the skies was an ambitious feat, one to cherish and don Sunday's finest for. This ad has old-timey energy, and it reclaims the aspirational vibes of a time when people looked to the sky and saw the potential to make anything possible. Of course, the backdrop of the Southern Lakes district doesn't hurt, either. 

Who's it for: Genesis by Shine

Why we like it: We have the same lava lamp as that kid, and we can confirm it is a source of great joy. This ad has a nice premise and it does make us think about all the energy – good and bad – we have around us at all times. A wee side note though: for an ad with the tagline 'Everything is energy', it's confusing they didn't have the energy to capitalise their subtitles. Subtitles aren't the time to make stylistic decisions about the English language, this isn't conceptual poetry people.

Who's it for: Pet Refuge NZ

Why we like it: This is a side to domestic violence you may not have thought about before. New research from Women's Refuge reveals a huge number of women delay leaving abusive relationships because they fear what will happen to their beloved pets at the hands of their abusers. The research was based on a survey of nearly 1000 domestic violence victims and found that 41 percent of victims said they or their children had been forced to watch their pet be harmed by their partner. This campaign aims to raise awareness of the issue and drum up support to build the first Pet Refuge – a service to house animals when their owners leave violent homes. A very worthy cause indeed.
