Lead Business Partner (Group Business Director)

  • Auckland City Fringe - Grey Lynn

DDB New Zealand is looking for a seasoned Lead Business Partner to head one of its biggest clients. This is a rare opportunity to join our agency at a senior level.

You’ll be equally passionate about the client’s business as you are about the business of ideas and you’ll have strong strategic ability to help lead and drive the business forward.

You’ll be an effective leader, able to balance the hopes and aspirations of the agency with those of the client. You’ll revel at the thought of working on one very large piece of business with a bunch of very talented and dedicated people and be as committed to growing the teams’ careers as you are about furthering your own.

You’ll also be able to juggle multiple projects and foster client relationships at a senior level that pave the way for great work.

If you are interested, send your CV and cover letter to opportunities@nz.ddb.com

Who's it for: Mercer KiwiSaver by Tenfold

Why we like it: Stan, tell me more about your KiwiSaver habits, please. It really felt like he was going to break into song at some point during this spot, yet sadly, the recording studio and instruments are just a tease. Oh well, hopefully this ad will encourage more people to consider putting money into their KiwiSavers.

Who's it for: Drive Go (NZTA and ACC) by Strategy Creative

Why we like it: If only a quick watch of a 2D birds-eye-view video really could teach you how to parallel park, it would have saved a lot of cold sweats and nervous yelling back in my day. This ad does an excellent job of showing just how much pressure you feel like you're under when attempting to parallel park though. A word from the wise for this kid, the bright lime green car really doesn't help you look inconspicuous, though.
