We're looking for a Senior Creative Team to join NZ's number 1 advertising agency.
You'll have the privilege of working across the various Colenso accounts such as Fonterra, Pedigree, BNZ, Visa and DB to name a few.
So, who are we after?
As a Senior Creative Team, you will have the ability to lead projects, have strategic conversations with clients, sell work and see the big picture.
You will inspire and run junior teams to deliver projects; guiding them and helping them to lift the work to the next level. Around ideas and craft.
This role will require you to be responsible for quality creative output, and this will be judged by creative awards, creative rankings and effectiveness.
We're looking for a natural relationship builder with our clients, and doing this by making yourself available to clients, by demonstrating strategic understanding of our client's business issues and above all, by delivering effective creative work.
Working directly into the CD's & ECD's, a senior creative will often be expected to collaborate with discipline specific Creative Heads when projects or briefs require.
What makes this role unique?
You will have the opportunity to work across the various accounts Colenso holds, which means you will be able to work on challenging creative projects, really focus on the craft and team up the most awarded creatives in the industry. Outwardly we are a large established agency, but we always work in close cohesion with each other, without being bogged down by a tall hierarchy and status quo.
This role is for you if you have a hunger to produce beautifully crafted and exceptional creative work, achieve outstanding business results for our clients, and be a vision of change in an evolving creative environment.
How would we describe ourselves?
Colenso is an award-winning agency and part of the Clemenger Group - New Zealand's largest and most successful group of advertising creative communication companies.
We have 8 agencies in New Zealand and 16 in Australia. BBDO was named Network of the year (for the 4th year in a row) and Colenso has just been named #10 Agency in the world!
26% of the shares are owned by staff and we are 100% locally managed. We are in the BBDO network which is the world's most effective creative network (290 offices - 90 countries - 17,000+ staff). This means you are part of a highly regarded global network that has local focus and truly values their staff.
We encourage a good work-life balance and support that through staff initiatives and programmes. This includes massages, car cleaning, and free fruit and snacks. Culture and people are our focus and as such we like to enjoy the company of the people we work with.

Hey well done TBWA - great 2 Degrees have gone back to their roots with the agency that launched the brand so successfully, well done Catherine, Shane and team. A nice way to end the year and good that 2 ...
Congratulations on issue 247! Here's to issue 500!
that's what we heard
any truth to the rumour that they have dumped 2D for Voda?
Very well played R&R (aged 5) and Special (aged 10) from all of us at the adolescent Big (aged 15).
Wonder what NZ Governments tax take is from the top 4 ranked websites. I think we can probably describe it as SF & A

Who’s it for: McDonald's by DDB
Why we like it: Just about everybody will be able to relate to waking up the morning after the night before, and it's not a pretty sight. The latest McDonald's campaign portrays the ease at which delivery service Uber Eats can come to your rescue in times of need perfectly, with a knight-in-shining McDonald's livery (although it seems unlikely an Uber driver would wear that) dropping off your McMuffin straight to your door.
Who’s it for: TAB by VMLY&R
Why we like it: It's summer and everyone's amped for the continuing summer of sport schedule, not least tennis fans eagerly awaiting the make-or-break news from Roger Federer at this year's Australian Open. The TAB has tapped into the anticipation nicely with this spot, relating the tennis to the launch of new live betting capabilities.
Who’s it for: Lotto NZ by DDB
Why we like it: A favourite from 2018 is back to welcome the already work weary back to reality – with the two protagonists of Lotto's armoured truck campaign gazing happily out to sea from their flash campervan. No doubt the first week back at work alone is enough to inspire a fair few to buy a Lotto ticket, but this is a nice, topical ad for the start of the year.
Who’s it for: Air New Zealand by True
Why we like it: It seems unfair that one tiny kiwi with no limbs to squeeze into a shrinking economy seat gets to try out all seat options for mid-haul travel, but at least Pete seems like a personable guy. Pitched to get more Singaporean tourists onto our shores, the campaign does show New Zealand bathed in a lovely golden light that's sure to get the tourists flocking.
Who’s it for: Warehouse Stationery by DDB
Why we like it: If we think going back to work is bad, it's nothing compared to the dread a child feels when an 'endless summer' turns into back-to-school-specials. But this lighthearted campaign from Warehouse Stationery injects some humour into the difficult time year, with an 'undercover student' gathering pertinent intelligence about the nature of school stationery from primary school students.
