Leighton Howl Recruitment Director

Are you a creative team buzzing with creativity, passion, and smarts, who loves all aspects of bringing ideas to life? Are you ready to step out of the big agency world to cut your own path? 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 consumers in their tracks.

If so, this role may be for you two.

Our client, a growing Auckland integrated agency, is now looking for a midweight creative team (a copywriter and an art director) to join their successful studio. This newly created role works closely across a range of clients and encompasses all the skills and expertise of advertising, content, ideation, brand, design, online, copywriting, typography, and much much more.

The successful 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 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 grow into a senior-level team within 2-3 years and own the projects within the agency and studio structure while reporting to a CD on all ideation and production.

Apply this side of Christmas, start mid-January. New Year - New role - New clients!
