Project Manager / Account Manager

South's core graphic design division is seeking a highly motivated, highly organised, passionate project manager /account manager who is inspired by the value of design, and how it can transform business.

Your character and nature should be warm, positively geared (an optimist) filled with empathy and an acute appreciation for detail (you must be laser focused), you should enjoy human conversations, and be more extravert than introvert. You should possess a caring nature to carefully manage creative team personalities, the intricacies and variable detailed communication nature of fast moving design projects from end to end. You will support our driven creative director, and General Manager who have high business acumen in the day to day running of a very detailed and specialist consultancy, who are at the forefront of New Zealand and global design and marketing. You must enjoy positively interacting with business leaders, CEO’s, CMO’s and brand leads to build brand strategy’s, brand identities and brand roll out, and understand how design shifts into campaigns, content, and marketing. If you have an understanding of business operations, entrepreneurship, and finance this is a bonus. But you must have 4 or 5ish years minimum experience and knowledge having worked in the creative industry, design studio experience preferred, and you must love the satisfaction of delivering projects on time, and under budget. Above all, you must be relentless in your pursuit to champion successful projects for exciting people who are moving the needle in our communities.
