A rare opportunity to step into a senior digital agency management role and make it truly your own.
Would you like a Digital Lead role (ops focused, resourcing, scheduling), OR a Client Service Lead role (team leadership, client management), OR a little bit of both? This role can be moulded to suit you, your strengths, and your background.
The role can also be permanent or a 12-month contract – whatever works for you!
This is a senior-level role, and it’s imperative that you have a digital agency background and an understanding of agency systems and processes. Proven experience delivering complex digital platforms, products and marketing communications will be essential.
You'll be used to juggling a range of clients and projects, and you'll have experience leading and mentoring a team.
You’ll be the technical (or client, or both) expert for projects and operations. You will help to deliver simple digital solutions for often-complex business/communications problems.
You’ll provide senior leadership and direction for key clients; champion agency processes and project excellence; and drive operational efficiencies across the studio.
You’ll have strong planning and financial management skills, and be able to identify and maximise revenue opportunities. You’ll also be able to rigorously control costs, budgets, resources, and scope across each client.
You’ll have a high degree of technical/digital understanding and be able to talk-the-talk with your internal teams, and be able to interpret the jargon into plain English for clients.
Based in Wellington, this leading digital agency has a fantastic reputation, with a client roster comprised of some of New Zealand's leading companies, government departments and brands, and a talented and experienced industry-leading team focused on creating excellent work.

Long time since a telco, especially given their awful customer service, have made me feel something. I didn't want to like it, but sometimes the heart overcomes the head...
Damon and team - thanks for making me cry - bastards!!
Best ad overall in years. Better than Lotto in my view. Well done all.
This is how emotional advertising should be done. Well done Vodafone. The best telco ad in years.
Apart from alluding the dog was put down it's rather one-dimensional compared to Lotto and Speights and Coloursteel even.
Exciting new world? You mean like how this same idea was done 15 years ago? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UBLjdtwxag

Who's it for: Clemenger BBDO and Warmer Kiwi Homes
Why we liked it: Wholesome. That one word could sum up this whole ad. This family scene is a perfect example of the banter that is experienced with a small child. Do you need this? No. Are you sure? Yes. Are you very sure? Yes. I've had about eight similar conversations with every child in my family. It's a witty way to show that spending less time trying to heat your family ultimately means more time spent with them enjoying the little things.
Who's it for: EightyOne and Powershop
Why we liked it: This ad is a clever play on an electrical attraction that made me moderately uncomfortable. Called ‘A power company you can love’, the campaign features the young woman talking about her relationship with the big pink blob. They met online, have been together for three years, and while it’s not your typical relationship, it works for them.
Love can come in many shapes and sizes, sometimes that shape can be an 8 foot, neon pink glowing blob. Love is love.
Who's it for: Vodafone
Why we liked it: Vodafone did not need to play us like that. It was an unnecessary emotional rollercoaster that ripped out my heart just to tell me 5G is here. This message could have been portrayed without the manipulation, tears, and straight depression that comes from being forced to think a dog is dying. Yes, cinematically impressive and gripping, cruel all the same. For those equally upset, check out this handy site to see if a movie or ad you're about to watch has a dog that dies.
