YOU

You MUST be commercially-minded and be able to spot revenue growth opportunities from within your accounts. You'll be able to have strong business and sales-based conversations, not just be a do-er.

You will have smart direct reports in your team, so you need to be able to manage effectively and have previous team management experience.

You MUST have strong digital client service experience and knowledge of deep digital or technology, working on complex projects across a variety of digital channels. You will be the type of person who loves following the latest trends and can have conversations with your (very senior) clients on digital transformation and technology.

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for: The Edge by the in-house team

Why we like it: Infomercial-style ads take us right back to the glorious days of old when we were sick – but not too sick – home from school and got the sought-after opportunity to watch daytime TV. There was literally nothing greater in an eight-year-old's life. So for that reason, these ads get a big tick from us. There's humour, and, despite what often happens when radio hosts venture into a visual format, it doesn't miss the mark.

Who's it for: House of Travel by the in-house team

Why we like it: Who doesn't love when brands bring back a break-out star from one of their earlier campaigns? To be completely honest, we didn't recognise Lucy on first glance, but after a quick trip down memory lane, we placed her as Miss Lucy from that singing and dancing retro campaign House of Travel launched more than a decade ago. We like the continuity of this ad and watching a man choke on his drink after a snapback from a woman doesn't hurt either. 

Who's it for: Joblist by Badger Communications

Why we like it: Sonia is a dead-set hero. We are introduced to her glamorous, visor-wearing face peering out from behind a freshly-levelled hedge and the next thing we know she's no ordinary arborist. We watch Sonia as she looks into that shrub's soul and reveals the schnauzer-shaped masterpiece of her own creation. We never knew we needed someone with Sonia's skill set in our lives, but now we know we do. Thank you Sonia for showing us the light.
