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: ASB by True

Why we like it: Following up her successful ‘Stick’ start-up business, young Hana has hit another sweet spot with her orange smiles. No country loves rugby as much as New Zealand — even after the weekend's drama— so this is sure to be a winner. Why would turn down an orange at halftime? If only all our childhood ventures could end with the All Blacks turning up for a selfie.

Who’s it for: AMI by Colenso BBDO

Why we like it: Even though we’d rather spend our hard-earned dollars on something else, it’s important to have insurance. And when/if terrible things happen, kindness is also very important too. Nice to see AMI celebrate a humane touch and understanding for what can be a frightening and confusing time for people.

Who’s it for: Sky by DDB New Zealand

Why we like it: It would be good to have a bit of help when arguing with our partners just to ensure the best shot is taken, and Sky does this with humour and style in this spot. Part of the ‘Life Needs More Sport’ campaign, all three ads released so far are entertaining sporty-spins on what can be mundane parts of life.
