amazing original work across multiple platforms. Your work speaks for itself.
To date you have extensive experience working with Advertising, Digital and
Marketing clients with expertise in cross platform Campaign Development,
Live-Action, Design and Visual effects, and in-depth experience in existing and

You’ll love the freedom to
forge a new approach and creative direction for Team ZSPACE, and to bring your
strategic mindset, energy, and enthusiasm to the needs of existing and new
clients and to mentor and motivate the creative team. You’ll be the kind of
leader who can take a 3-year view in the morning, but be down in the weeds,
helping out where needed, in the afternoon.
You’ll be comfortable,
capable and confident in front of clients, with a proven ability to develop
campaign strategy, conceptualise, write and present successful creative
treatments, and proposals, for a wide-ranging slate of budgets and platforms.
You’ll be articulate and have your own authentic voice.
As a highly experienced
creative you'll understand the importance of business development and working
closely with a production team to develop new opportunities as well as grow and
support existing ones. You understand the need to identify workplace
efficiencies and are always looking for fresh pathways to great work for our
creative team. You’ll have strong existing client and industry relationships,
and hopefully know some great people that we can work with, and perhaps for.
We pride ourselves on our
happy, buzzing, studio culture, and the passion and motivation of our Creative
Director is a key part of this. You'll enjoy harnessing the collective talents
of other artists to create visually compelling, stand-out work in a
collaborative working environment.
