Great agency Group Account Director roles don't come up that often. Here's your chance!
This agency specialises in insights and personalisation, data, CRM,eDMs, digital campaigns, website rebuilds, digital transformation, plus creative design and build. You'll need to have a background that includes some or all of these facets.
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.

The saddest thing about this post, is a reminder of how sh$t this industry is. A brand puts out an RFI to the industry, which you would guess anyone non-conflicted would have responded to? A local agency (yep, owned by ...

Who's it for: Mercer KiwiSaver by Tenfold
Why we like it: Stan, tell me more about your KiwiSaver habits, please.

Why we like it: If only a quick watch of a 2D birds-eye-view video really could teach you how to parallel park, it would have saved a lot of cold sweats and nervous yelling back in my day.
