Creative Team / Wellington / $50k – $65k

The Pond Jobs Make a Comment

Are you a junior creative team buzzing with creativity, passion and smarts, who admires old school advertising insights but also creates and lives within a new digital world? Do you appreciate the past and see far into the future with new ideas that make consumers laugh, think long and hard or maybe get a bit pissed off?

If so, this is an opportunity to jump into this great agency, listen, learn, debate and create work that stops New Zealanders in their tracks. Can you make them backup up the car to read a billboard or stop them swiping to play a video within their feed? If so, this role may be for you two.

Our client, a growing Wellington agency, is now looking for a junior creative team (maybe intern level) to join their successful creative team of ten (within an agency of 50). This newly created role works closely across a range of clients and encompasses all the skills and expertise of advertising, content, TV, ideation, brand, design, online, mobile, touchscreen, photography, typography, and much much more.

The successful fresh team will take charge of the creative studio from the bottom up, create work that turns heads, gets thrown out, ripped apart, but at the same time creates the odd nugget that gets through to the back of the net and maybe if kicked hard enough wins the odd award. We are talking about ideas that shock, inspire or simply communicate with clarity that will be produced weekly for great clients wanting great results.

This is an opportunity to be close to the ECD, the creative directors and learning from the people at the top in this pure creative centred Wellington agency.

  • Min 1, 2 or 3 years’ agency work experience
  • A selection of ideas within a strong portfolio
