Leighton Howl Recruitment Director

We’re looking for someone who needs a change! Change of career, change of lifestyle, even change of city? This role brings you all of this and the beach – and the best bit, it’s just in time for summer.

This is a once in a blue moon role, for an up and coming Agency Account Manager, sick of the big city life wanting to take their hard-earned agency experience to one of NZs best regional marketing agencies.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Agency Account Manager, keen on a new challenge in a regional advertising agency with a 20+ year tenure that competes with the big city players.

This person needs to be passionate about advertising and digital marketing 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.

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