Creative Talent Agent/Recruiter for Advertising, Design & Digital

At 3rdeye we see people differently. We are recruiters in the creative communication sector. We know the industry; we understand our clients and we place the best people in the right positions. Our client relationships are based on trust, ethics and, above all, mutual respect. We are based in central Newmarket a great spot if you want to get anything done in your lunch break.

We're on the look-out for a Creative Talent Agent to join our team. This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person to join one of NZ's top boutique recruitment agencies for advertising, design, digital and media.

As a Talent Agent, you will have an agency background with solid creative-led industry knowledge. You'll be confident to 'walk the walk' and 'talk the talk', with a clear ability to spot talent and connect people outside of the box.

Above all, you will have an affinity for communicating with people, fostering both client and candidate relationships at a high level. We're after someone with a 'can-do' attitude, an outgoing personality and above-all-else professionalism.
So, whether you're an ex-suit, a media mover & shaker, a creative genius or a digital do-er, if the above sounds like you then now is your chance to embark on a journey in recruitment for the creative industry.

Our clients are diverse. From big multinational agencies to packaging and consumer design houses to boutique digital shops, large corporates, national retailers as well as international briefs that come our way. No two roles are the same, no two clients are the same and no candidates are the same – so we have to think outside the square to be effective in our market.

If you want to see who we are, where we are, what jobs we have on currently or even stalk us on LinkedIn. It's all here for you to see at 3rdeye.co.nz. If you would like to find out a bit more send your CV to andy@3rdeye.co.nz or give Andy a call on +6421735655.

Who's it for: Clemenger BBDO and Warmer Kiwi Homes 

Why we liked it: Wholesome. That one word could sum up this whole ad. This family scene is a perfect example of the banter that is experienced with a small child. Do you need this? No. Are you sure? Yes. Are you very sure? Yes. I've had about eight similar conversations with every child in my family. It's a witty way to show that spending less time trying to heat your family ultimately means more time spent with them enjoying the little things. 

Who's it for: EightyOne and Powershop 

Why we liked it: This ad is a clever play on an electrical attraction that made me moderately uncomfortable. Called ‘A power company you can love’, the campaign features the young woman talking about her relationship with the big pink blob. They met online, have been together for three years, and while it’s not your typical relationship, it works for them.

Love can come in many shapes and sizes, sometimes that shape can be an 8 foot, neon pink glowing blob. Love is love. 

Who's it for: Vodafone 

Why we liked it: Vodafone did not need to play us like that. It was an unnecessary emotional rollercoaster that ripped out my heart just to tell me 5G is here. This message could have been portrayed without the manipulation, tears, and straight depression that comes from being forced to think a dog is dying. Yes, cinematically impressive and gripping, cruel all the same. For those equally upset, check out this handy site to see if a movie or ad you're about to watch has a dog that dies.
