Intermediate Account Manager

  • Auckland - Parnell

If you have 4+ years experience in an advertising or design agency but want more hands-on client interaction and ownership of projects, read on...

• Small, friendly and successful design studio
• Great mentor and supportive team
• Work/life balance a reality

This small brand design agency based in Parnell is after a solid pair of hands to manage day to day projects from client briefs through to delivery. For three days a week you'll be working closely with a senior account director, but you'll have your own clients and projects to take ownership of. However she's there for advice and training to ensure you continue to develop your skillset. On the other two days you will happily keep projects flowing and respond to all client and team queries.

You'll already have mastered attention to detail and production briefs and will be developing your ability to write creative briefs with the input of a strategist. While packaging experience would be a plus, it's certainly not necessary as we are happy to look at your experience with a wide scope. That's because the essential aspects for this role are your positive personality, your communication skills and your proven ability to take those through to successful client relationships and happy team mates.

Someone who's still after the agency 'social scene' won't be appropriate for this studio, but if you're over the crazy agency hours and unrealistic pace, and you're looking for a team that still has high expectations but offers the support and skills to achieve them, then do apply. This role will ideally be starting mid June so get on to it!

If you have 4+ years agency experience, please send your CV to or, for a confidential chat, call Jo on 021 972 054.

Please note this role is only open to those with fluent English - both written and verbal, as well as already living in NZ and visas in place to legally apply for permanent roles.

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.
