Group Account Director, Hawke’s Bay

  • Napier-Hastings

Dream role, dream location.

If you love your career choice but not where you have to live to progress it, then this is the dream opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Tracta is a full service communications agency based in Hawke’s Bay. We’re a significant force in the agribusiness sector, with a national and international client base.

We’re in growth mode, so we’re looking for a commercially astute Group Account Director to work in a client development role within our account service team. This position would suit a strategically-minded person with strong agency process and at least five years experience in client service in a GAD or Account Director role.

Proven leadership capability is crucial given the need to coach and mentor the account service team. You’ll also be a natural networker with outstanding presentation skills and the ability to write and present new business pitches.

Tracta has built a reputation as New Zealand’s agribusiness specialist communications agency. Whilst indepth farming knowledge is not essential for the role, we’ll be looking for a person who shares our heartland values and appreciation of all things rural.

This an exciting full-time, permanent role with an immediate start for the right person and the only one of its kind in Hawke’s Bay. If this sounds like you (and you’d enjoy a ridiculously short work commute, affordable housing and endless sunshine), please send a covering letter and CV to

Who’s it for: McDonald's by DDB 

Why we like it: Just about everybody will be able to relate to waking up the morning after the night before, and it's not a pretty sight. The latest McDonald's campaign portrays the ease at which delivery service Uber Eats can come to your rescue in times of need perfectly, with a knight-in-shining McDonald's livery (although it seems unlikely an Uber driver would wear that) dropping off your McMuffin straight to your door.  

Who’s it for: TAB by VMLY&R

Why we like it: It's summer and everyone's amped for the continuing summer of sport schedule, not least tennis fans eagerly awaiting the make-or-break news from Roger Federer at this year's Australian Open. The TAB has tapped into the anticipation nicely with this spot, relating the tennis to the launch of new live betting capabilities.   

Who’s it for: Lotto NZ by DDB

Why we like it: A favourite from 2018 is back to welcome the already work weary back to reality – with the two protagonists of Lotto's armoured truck campaign gazing happily out to sea from their flash campervan. No doubt the first week back at work alone is enough to inspire a fair few to buy a Lotto ticket, but this is a nice, topical ad for the start of the year.

Who’s it for: Air New Zealand by True

Why we like it: It seems unfair that one tiny kiwi with no limbs to squeeze into a shrinking economy seat gets to try out all seat options for mid-haul travel, but at least Pete seems like a personable guy. Pitched to get more Singaporean tourists onto our shores, the campaign does show New Zealand bathed in a lovely golden light that's sure to get the tourists flocking.  

Who’s it for:  Warehouse Stationery by DDB

Why we like it: If we think going back to work is bad, it's nothing compared to the dread a child feels when an 'endless summer' turns into back-to-school-specials. But this lighthearted campaign from Warehouse Stationery injects some humour into the difficult time year, with an 'undercover student' gathering pertinent intelligence about the nature of school stationery from primary school students.
