COPY LEAD/ACD (FULL TIME) US$10,000 PER MONTH – HARTAS & CRAIG, HONG KONG
We have an exciting opportunity in Hong Kong for a talented up and coming ideas based ACD/Copywriter to join a global agency, working across several FMCG brands for markets around the world.
You’ll be expected to lead and develop ideas across all media platforms with an emphasis on digital platforms: social, interactive, web and mobile, as well as the traditional TV/OTV and print. You must be strong strategically and have great leadership skills together with a passion for nurturing and guiding young up and coming talent from an eclectic mix of backgrounds.
With proven experience working on large integrated brand campaigns, you have an understanding of the challenges FMCG brands can present. You’ll be working closely with the senior management team, building strong internal and client relationships across the board.
Your responsibilities will include management of junior teams, inspiring them and sharing your extensive industry knowledge. You’ll be respected for what you can bring based on the successes you’ve had and the industry awards you’ve won so far. As a highly conceptual creative you have a sense of curiosity and are articulate in your communication, with the ability to persuade and inform whilst maintaining agency standards and strategic points of view.
As a Copy Lead it goes without saying that you’re a master of the English language, both written and verbal, and able to find different tones of voice to suit various brands. You’re organised, with impeccable attention to detail and a sense of urgency in a fast-paced environment. With a level of confidence presenting inhouse as well as on a global level, you have an element of charm and are smart and insightful. Above all, you embrace great ideas regardless of where or from whom they come. With a positive forward-thinking attitude you’re ready to step up and shine.
This is a welcoming, friendly global agency with passionate people who really embrace what they do. You must be curious, current, and interested in what goes on around you, up to date with the latest trends in advertising, design and technology.
ASSOCIATE CREATIVE DIRECTORS WANTED! $150K-$170K (FULL TIME) – HARTAS & CRAIG, SYDNEY
We are working in close partnership with our client to identify two Associate CDs to join the team. The selection here will be tough.
You could be an existing team already with up to 10 years’ experience, working at an agency where you have reached your peak and now ready for a new challenge in a fresh environment. Or you could be two individuals, Art Director and Copywriter, looking for your next challenge – with an open mind, however, to potentially be teamed up with someone you may not already know. You must be organised, have impeccable attention to detail, take direction well but also give direction well.
What we’d like to see is fresh talent who haven’t necessarily been in this position before but have the work and the experience to back you. Also, leadership ability, a positive attitude, humility, honesty and great communication and listening skills. The teams will look up to you for guidance and learning so you must be willing to share, encourage, motivate and inspire.
This is a global agency on a mission, with a good mix of exciting clients and the internal capabilities to make anything happen and with every media platform you can think of. There is world class leadership and an awesome creative department with talent at every level to help you feel welcome.
First and foremost, your work must demonstrate strong strategic thinking and superb craft across copywriting and art direction. Integrated capabilities are also a must, from social to TV, content to print and OOH. Awards would be a bonus but not a must. Big ideas, clear thinking and a collaborative, hardworking attitude.
SENIOR WRITER – TO $130K (FULL TIME) – A3 RECRUITMENT, MELBOURNE
If you’re at the junior end of senior and looking to step up, this is the role. Joining a very talented AD you’ll be the agency senior team and the go-to creatives for all the big briefs. This Melbourne agency has been overhauling the pack over recent years with a relatively new ECD really making his mark. Into the Campaign Brief hotlist, and now winning at some international shows, they have a thirst for work that’s original, and a distaste for egoism.
The client list is fabulous, with high profile consumer goods, a media outlet, motor vehicles, a global sports brand, financial services and a boutique dairy brand as the main ones. The agency numbers are in the mid 50’s with integrated media and PR, giving more opportunity to creatives looking to create cross-platform work. You will need to have a bit of metal on the mantle to crack this one and a genuine desire to get really good stuff done. Get in touch directly if you’d like to know more: email@example.com.
