Managing Partner | Advertising/Design

Reference #6500

This is your chance to build the agency you’ve always wanted to work at!

We are looking for a Managing Partner to take an equity share and co-management role in this Auckland-based advertising/design agency. You will be responsible for growing this brand in the Auckland market.

Your agency will be backed up by a full service integrated creative agency group, with massive international support.

Ideally, you will be well-connected with clients as business development will be a key part of your role. You will be totally comfortable having sales conversations, leading pitches, and seeking out new revenue for the agency.

Leadership is also a core part of this role. You’ll be starting this agency team from the ground up (with the help of a Creative Partner), so you’ll need to draw on your experience with team leadership, structures and growth plans to build a great group of people around you.

You’ll work with your business partner to create, communicate and implement your agency’s vision, mission and overall direction and drive collaboration between your team members and other agencies within the wider Group.

You’ll be strategically-minded and able to flesh out campaign and project strategies for your client; and you’ll be exceptionally good at client service, as you will be leading the charge in client management for the agency.

You’ll be a top-level communicator with outstanding written and verbal English; an accomplished presenter and someone who is happy to be the face and voice of your agency with clients, stakeholders and the media.

If the thought of running your own agency (backed up by a strong, existing agency brand name) appeals to you, please get in touch with us today by clicking Apply via Email quoting reference #6500. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Please note that due to COVID border restrictions you must currently be living in and have the right to work in New Zealand to be considered for this role.
