Senior Account Manager/Account Director

  • Auckland

Calling all Senior Account Managers or Account Directors from a design agency background!

Are you a Senior Account Manager or Account Director who wants to get their teeth stuck into a range of clients and projects?

We are looking for someone to become part of a growing, tight-knit team – someone who can be a champion for design, strategy and clients and who doesn't mind rolling up their sleeves and doing the do as well as being a strategic thinker.

Your task will be to build and maintain great client relationships, seek out opportunities within our existing client base and work with the studio to ensure projects are on-brief, profitable and delivered on time.

You will have a love for design and creativity and an understanding of implementing brand strategies, with the ability to translate a client's needs into a design brief. Therefore, it's important that you have had experience working in design agencies. You may also have advertising agency experience, but having a design background is essential.

Our client place's their people at the centre of everything they do. While they are looking for people who meet the above criteria, having a fantastic personality and fitting with the team is their priority. Located on the Auckland CBD fringe, the office is new and bright. The team is experienced and growing, and this role could evolve into a team management role in the future. If you are looking for a small, tight-knit team, then this could be it.

If you think this sounds like you, please click Apply via Email quoting reference #5984SP. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ.

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.
