London-trained Senior Direct Planner / Strategy Director– Auckland, New Zealand
Are you an experienced, London-trained Senior Planner or Strategist looking for a new career AND lifestyle move? Have you ever considered the beautiful, outdoorsy city of Auckland, New Zealand which is something of an advertising creative hotspot?
This mid-sized (by New Zealand standards) customer experience agency is well-established and growing, with big international network backing (by one of the very best networks in the the world). They have a modern approach to data-driven marketing, a lovely, friendly atmosphere and are well respected within their market, with a great mix of big, global blue chip clients and some smaller local ones.
They are on the hunt for a talented, London-trained Senior Planner or Strategist to lead the direct and data-driven planning on a large, very high profile global QSR brand as well as other blue-chip clients.
This role could also suit a native Kiwi Senior Planner / Strategist who has gained considerable London experience and is ready to bring that learning back to their home country.
