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.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ and who have previous agency experience either in NZ or overseas.
And the disclaimer at 1.31: 'Concept Vehicle shown. Not available for sale. Specifications may change'. Lighten up. It's a scam ad for a scam car about the brand's biggest ever scam. What's not to like?

Saatchi's must have missed out on this private pitch in the end...
it's weird because the world received the lemon, not volkswagen. why are they portraying themselves as the victim?

Who's it for: Tower Insurance by BC&F Dentsu
Why we like it: Appurtenance, now there's a ten-dollar world. One could argue it is, in fact, unnecessary. In the context of insurance, it basically means accessories relating to something, so it is abundantly clear that there are simpler ways to describe such things. Thankfully, Tower Insurance understands the pain of jargon and has decided to do without in its latest campaign. It would have been slightly more satisfying if the explosion had revealed a simple English synonym but either way it would nice to be able to understand a policy document for once.
Who's it for: Lotto NZ by DDB
Why we like it: Ugh, this ad brings back painful memories of winning a Real Groove magazine competition in 2007 but missing the call and having to live with the fact we'd never play Rock Band on PS2, not ever. So sad. The memories still haunt us to this day. You could say, this campaign touched a nerve. Like the previous Imagine ads before it, 'Lost' has it all. The joy, the sadness, the high stakes and the touching moments. If only we'd lovingly sealed our cellphone underneath our plaster cast all those years ago and then maybe we wouldn't have been forced to live a Rock Band-less life (admittedly, it was a short-lived fad, but an oft thought of one). You can't go back – a foot spa consolation prize would have done the trick, though.
Who's it for: AA Smartfuel by Rainger & Rolfe
Why we like it: For some reason, this ad is giving us major Serial Stuff throwbacks. Remember when Sports Susie, Outdoor Trevor and Lifestyle Sharon used to turn into Barbie dolls as soon as they stepped outside? A happier time. This ad similarly makes it seem like everything is actually real, just appearing like a toy. And it's so gosh darn cute, with its little petrol stations and bus stops. These little miniature people are just going about their lives seeking savings and avoiding the rain – and who isn't?
