Great agency Group Account Director roles don't come up that often. Here's your chance!

You MUST be commercially-minded and be able to spot revenue growth opportunities from within your accounts. You'll be able to have strong business and sales-based conversations, not just be a do-er.
You will have smart direct reports in your team, so you need to be able to manage effectively and have previous team management experience.

And the disclaimer at 1.31: 'Concept Vehicle shown. Not available for sale. Specifications may change'. Lighten up. It's a scam ad for a scam car about the brand's biggest ever scam. What's not to like?

Saatchi's must have missed out on this private pitch in the end...

Who's it for: Pinnacle Life by YoungShand
Why we like it: Pinnacle Life claims to know the world's luckiest man, licked by Lady Luck herself, and bound to a life of joy and good fortune – until his luck ran out, of course, and he died before his time. Insurance companies have a habit of reminding even the most optimistic people that nothing is guaranteed, and Pinnacle Life has decided to go down the route of showing how people let their loved ones down when they don't take out life insurance. It is a fact of life that we don't know what's around the corner – hopefully, the world's luckiest man has learnt his lesson by his next life.
Who's it for: Tourism NZ by Special Group
Why we like it: New Zealand is the first country in the world to see the break of a new day, and so we're uniquely placed to say 'good morning' before anyone else even wakes up. But there's so much more that makes New Zealand a unique place in the world, and this campaign celebrates all of those things. It's always nice to see ads that genuinely incorporate te reo Māori, and this one gets the tone just right. Ka pai.
Who's it for: Christchurch NZ by in-house
Why we like it: Christchurch, you're back. But what year is it there? This campaign appears to mix Goodbye Pork Pie with the Flight of the Conchords to produce a very New Zealand outcome. It's great that Christchurch is celebrating the rebuild of its CBD, but it is interesting that this city that will be so iconically placed in the 2010s (think Napier and the 1930s) would choose to go back in time. It is certainly a memorable ad, at least.
