Colenso are looking for a talented Account Director to lead one of our most exciting accounts. The account is well managed, consistent and has a strong client relationship. There's a lot of variation in the role and you'll also have more junior team members to assist you. It is a hands-on role requiring you to lead your account team, build business from your existing clients, and develop new business opportunities on an ongoing basis.
So, who are we after?
You naturally think outside the box without defaulting to formulaic responses. You're resilient, calm under pressure, thrive in a busy environment and be focused on delivery. You'll be itching to have more strategic thinking opportunities and comfortable writing strategic briefs. You will get excited about selling in world-class creative and take responsibility for every piece of work that you and your team works on. This role will require you to demonstrate organisational skills and a dedication to the detail of project management required to deliver projects to market on time, on budget and error-free.
The 3 main areas this role covers are:
Clients: you will be required to develop excellent relationships with clients within marketing teams from junior-to-senior-level. This will be a genuine partnership founded on the consistent delivery of work on behalf of the agency, and founded on your developing a sound understanding of the client business. You'll be the trusted adviser they call on when they have a question or concern, living and breathing the brand at all times.
Financial: You are responsible for the financial performance of your accounts and in particular preparing and meeting monthly revenue forecasts
The Work: And finally, it's a role that is all about “the work” - the quality, innovation and effectiveness of the strategic and creative product the agency delivers. You'll understand the importance of this and be passionate about making the contribution you can to ensure the work is great.

Who are we?
We are part of the Clemenger Group, New Zealand's largest and most successful group of advertising communications companies with eight agencies in NZ and 16 in Australia. In turn, the Clemenger Group is part of the creatively awarded global BBDO network.
