CREATIVE SERVICES: THE DEPARTMENT
From concept through to delivery, our Creative Services team produces engaging, impactful and strategic content for marketing campaigns, with a focus on social, digital, broadcast and OOH.

You’ll have a strong history of producing high-quality video content for various mediums and clients, with a primary focus on social, DOOH and broadcast.
In this role you’ll have to multitask confidently and bridge the gap between project management, creative decision making and client relations.
Reporting to the Head of Department, you will also play a pivotal role in our business growth. You’ll lead client presentations, identify and pursue new opportunities, help create pitching materials and foster client relationships with existing and potential new clients.
- Interpret client requirements and lead the creative direction to develop and execute the look and feel of our clients’ content (e.g. animated artwork, online promos, social content, junkets, DOOH, etc.)
- Provide articulate and concise peer-to-peer feedback for all deliverables to enhance creative output throughout the project lifecycle
- Participate in creative brainstorms, develop presentations and treatments, lead client pitches
- Own the communication with clients from start to finish, providing regular updates, and building a strong and lasting relationship
- Confidently drive multiple projects simultaneously within quick turnarounds and against budget
- Coordinate with the Production Manager and other Creative team members to ensure a smooth running of projects and capacity planning
- Troubleshoot problems as they arise and offer solutions to improve processes
- Review/QC finished work to ensure the final output meets the original brief, transcripts, delivery specs and brand guidelines
- Produce quotes and monitor resources dedicated to each project
Skills & Experience
You have 3+ years of experience crafting compelling AV content at a creative agency, advertising agency, in-house creative team or post-production house.
You are an “ideas” person who can conceptualise and produce smart, clever, innovative content for a variety of media. You will not be expected to create content yourself, but you’ll definitely possess a great sense of aesthetic design and video editing.
You have experience in both Production and Post-production, and have worked closely with film crew, motion graphic designers, editors and sound ops.
This is a highly client-facing role, so you’re a great communicator and have demonstrable experience in building client relationships in a previous production or creative role. Some experience in sales or new business is a bonus.
You should be an expert in delivering projects on time, on budget and on brief, through proactive and appropriate end-to-end management of project scope and resource.
Extremely organised, resourceful and confident in your ability to perform under pressure. You also show a collaborative spirit when working with other creatives.
You’ll be QCing all the work produced, so you’ve got a track record of great attention to detail.
You’ve got experience creating quotes and managing basic billing duties.
Possess a good understanding of what works across online advertising and social media. You naturally keep up with the latest trends.
A self-motivated and driven professional, hungry for opportunities, and who doesn’t mind going the extra mile to take projects over the line or help others.
