New year, new city? We’re looking for someone who needs a change! This role brings you a lifestyle change and the beach – and the best bit, it’s just in time for the peak of summer. 

This is a once in a blue moon opportunity for an up-and-coming Agency Account Manager, sick of the big city life or returning from abroad and wanting to take their agency expertise to one of NZs best regional marketing agencies.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Agency Account Manager, keen on a new challenge in a Tauranga advertising agency with a 20+ year tenure that creates a selection of work for a range of nationwide clients. 

This person needs to be passionate about advertising and digital marketing and have the confidence and flair to lead relationships with clients both big and small. This role reports directly to the Client Service Director and would suit a well-versed Account Manager looking for a step up, both in position and salary.

You’ll be responsible for bridging the gap between agency and client. Excellence in managing budget requirements is key, as is building solid relationships and tightly managing projects across strategy, creative, multi-channel national advertising campaigns, digital marketing and public relations activity. You’ll have the ability to not sweat the small stuff and get things done!

This is a great 9-month maternity cover contract with the potential to move into full-time for an outgoing self-starter looking for a change of scenery! Apply today!
