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: NZME 

Why we like it: Now this video is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of NZME's latest campaign, Find Your Voice, but it's a verifiable who's-who of the media company's cast lists. It seems unlikely that it's a coincidence that NZME have chosen to dress its stars in all black, when rival media company MediaWorks launched a new brand ad less than a month ago starring its cast in all white. But monochrome is in, we suppose. As NZME's broadcasters, journalists and radio DJs proclaim they are just normal people, the question has to be asked: did anyone think they weren't?

Who's it for: McDonald's NZ

Why we like it: There's never a more important time to celebrate the blessing that is an all-day breakfast than over a holiday weekend. "Alarm clocks be damned'" we say as we force ourselves to lay down the burden of a capitalist society and pretend we can function with more sleep than normal and four straight days of leisure time in a row. While some may crumble under the pressure of filling each luxuriously free day, others take comfort in the security that a Macca's breakfast will be there for us no matter what the time of day.

Who's it for: Les Mills

Why we like it: If you are one of the handful of New Zealanders who didn't gorge themselves on chocolate over the long weekend then this niche ad is just for you! As if sweating it out with the masses wasn't hard enough, now you can BodyPump to your heart's content by leading the pack with a nifty microphone and lashings of endurance training under your belt. But this top goal isn't for everyone, only extremely chipper, attractive exercisers need apply.
