We’re looking for mid to senior level art directors.
But there’s a small caveat: you have to be as nice as you are talented. Don’t let us find out that you were a pain in the ass to work with in your old job, cause that’s not FCB’s style, never will be. Eccentric, bring it on. Flamboyant. Tick. Introverted genius. In. W word. No thanks.
We’ll also spare you all the ‘pushing boundaries’ ‘fearless collaborator’ blah-di-blah marketing fishpaste, and just say that if you love your craft, you live, eat, sleep, breathe design and art direction, and your philosophy is: Have fun while creating iconic ‘real’ work, then you might just be the perfect fit.
Why us, and not the other guys?
We believe in making work that is enduring. Loved by NZ. Admired by our industry. Ads are a dime a dozen but affecting behavioral change and building iconic brands takes a different kind of mentality and special type of mahi. There are lots of places that are good at making ads, and winning awards, our god is effectiveness, and the awards just happen to follow. It’s why we were Creative Agency of the Year in 2020.
We live and breathe our company values which are – Never finished, Be Generous and No W@*kers. Life’s too short to work with toxic people or in dysfunctional work environments, and it ultimately effects everyone’s creativity. So we’re fiercely protective and well known for our great culture.
We have benefits, lots of them…
It goes without saying, as part of a global network, you’ll have access to world class systems and tools and ongoing development opportunities.
We have a dedicated wellness committee, That’s fancy speak for a group of lovely people who make sure you’re happy, healthy and not going insane (lockdown or no lockdown) – and we champion work life balance. So your family gets to see you often. Hooray for that.
We have year round regular shindigs, an on-site bar and café area, plus our enormous sunny outdoor courtyard which hosts everything from brunches, lunches, Friday night drinks and many agency parties. Agency staples are our table tennis, pool table, basketball and opportunities to join group fitness sessions. No experience required here.
You get to work in a flexible working environment, not a factory. In other words, you’re not measured by your ability to sit at a desk, but by your glorious output. So you do you.
We’re nice people, and part of being nice is giving back, that’s why you’ll receive a paid day off to do volunteer work within the community at a charity of your choice. You’ll be gifted your birthday off and an extra day off at Christmas time. You’ll have access to our freeparking app and discounted rates for gym membership, health and life insurance. Not only that, you will be nurtured, developed and celebrated and it will show in the best in class work that you produce as part of the Cult FCB whānau.
Sound like a little bit of you? You’ll need to have:
- Mid-level and above experience in art direction/ brand design
- A tertiary qualification in an aligned field – art history, visual communications, design.
- Proactive self-starter; keen to learn.
- Up-to-date with industry innovations – a natural passion for the industry.
Go for it, we’d love to hear from you!
