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.

Yeah, but none of us are really gonna stop advertising there are we?
This is just one of many studies which show that TV rules the roost for generating profit and sales. This isn't a unique finding except too most client and media agencies. All media can be good, and in fact the ...
What channel is Apple??
Hi again, just to clarify, this scoreboard is based on social media performance - of the top 25 'traditional' media spend brands. Hope that clarifies. Agree there are a lot of NZ brands outside of these that are doing fantastic ...
Thanks for your reply. I think you're missing a trick if you're basing it only on traditional spend. Lots of good NZ brands doing interesting stuff and getting great tradition without buying a single TVC.
Honouring the ads—and the agencies responsible for them—that make the biggest impact on consumers and get more bang for the client’s buck.

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.
