Anna Bethell Senior Recruitment Consultant

We’re looking for someone on the way up!

Are you quick-witted, organised and driven? Want to work in a role where design & advertising comes together across some of NZs well-recognised brands? This is a role that will take you from Account Manager to Senior Account Manager in 12 months or less!

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Account Manager, keen on a new challenge in a studio that brings together design and advertising – and fill a crucial gap in a fast-growing team.

This person needs to be passionate about advertising and branding and have the confidence and flair to lead relationships with clients both big and small. This role would suit a well-versed Account Manager looking for a step up, both in position and salary.  Or even a kiwi expat returning from overseas with experience in an international design studio or ad agency.

As part of a tight-knit team, this role is responsible for bridging the gap between agency and client, liaising and maintaining business relationships whilst managing projects through the studio to deliver outstanding creative results. Reporting to the Account Director, the Account Manager sits close to management, working across well known NZ clients.  

If this sounds like you, you'll be deadline-driven and with a focus on building long-standing relationships, both in the studio and with clients. Organisation and attention to detail will come naturally, as will an ability to not sweat the small stuff and just get things done! This tight-knit team love to fun so being able to have a good laugh is a prerequisite!   

This is a great opportunity for an outgoing self-starter, who's big on career progression and growth.
