Work type:

Be the digital leader of a well-known, highly acclaimed media agency. Determine business strategy. Grow your own team of specialists.


·         Head up a global media agency’s digital offering.

·         Drive agenda-setting digital work.

·         Develop high performing digital media teams.




This global media agency is part of one of the world’s most admired and successful agency networks. With a suite of loyal, large-spending brands in their portfolio, they are going from strength to strength with a focus on digital and technology-driven solutions.


They have a tight-knit team of media experts from diverse backgrounds and specialties, so you’ll be working alongside some of the best. At a network level, they have some of the world’s most impressive, senior digital leaders and clear business objectives set for 2020.


Located in stunning offices in the central city and with numerous agency perks on offer, you’d be hard pressed to find a better workplace in Auckland.




In this role you’ll lead the agency’s digital proposition, working with some of NZ’s largest brands to set the digital agenda.


Working closely with the client account leads, your role is to continue building this agency’s digital offering, looking at how excellence is defined across digital strategy, planning and implementation. You’ll be able to call on your experience in other media agency environments to take a view on systems and processes, and how the ‘Big Picture’ translates into the digital output.


Developing and managing the ever-growing team is a big part of this role so you’ll look to lead from the front - engendering trust, encouraging initiative and securing loyalty.



·         Define digital strategy for some of NZ’s leading brands.

·         Lead on client relationships from a digital perspective.

·         Build, manage and upskill your team of digital media experts.

·         Determine and streamline the digital workflow.




We are looking for a digital leader within the media agency space who can create fruitful relationships with clients, inspire and motivate the team, set up effective workflows and run the digital P&L.


A seasoned practitioner in digital media strategy and planning, you are looking to be challenged beyond the day-to-day of account leadership. You’ll be ready to step up and develop the overarching digital agenda.


·         Ability to lead digital at a senior level, with the influence needed to make change within businesses.

·         Staff management and leadership, including developing departmental outputs across digital planning.

·         Wide knowledge of digital from concept through to implementation.

·         Experience working on & winning large pitches.
