Cat herder needed.
But unlike your last job of getting floof-balls to do stuff, you’ll be herding the far more reasonable Strategists, Clients and Creatives. As a Delivery Junior, you’ll turn chaos into outcomes with the magic of calendars, tools and your inherent organisational skills.
But unlike herding cats, this job pays money, and exists.
You’ll be reporting into our Delivery Manager who’ll show you how to be resourceful, stay graceful under pressure and how common sense can make the impossible, possible.
It’s also an incredibly satisfying job to have. The way everyone sees it here, without exceptional delivery, no creative work would exist.
As for us. Well, we’re just a bunch of serious thinkers dedicated to creating unmatched business outcomes for our clients. We love challenging ourselves every day, finishing mentally tired but totally satisfied we contributed to something meaningful. Our workplace policies mean you go home at a reasonable hour, disconnect, play and come back for another round the next day.
Proudly independent, we’re the winner of AFR’s Best Places to Work. We’re also one of the most effective agencies on the planet according to the awards we’ve won. We’re looking for another Bright Spark to help us deliver more dazzling outcomes.
COULD THIS BE YOU?
Experience This is an entry level role. In terms of tools, if you can find your way around Excel, Word and PowerPoint, you’ll be okay.
Thinking You're a fast learner and organised. If you make lists, use your calendar and plan ahead, that’s perfect.
Optimistic Delivery people are can-do people. In other words, when others think it can’t be done, you find a way.
Crafty It feels good when things are perfect. That’s why everyone at AFFINITY keeps a close eye on all the little details.
Relationship builder You’re great with people – both communicating with them and giving our clients brilliant customer-service.
Proactive You solve problems before they exist and dream up new ways to make process smooth.
Switched on You stay across the work you’re on, so if anyone asks you where something is, you’ll know.
Bossy-ish You’re good at learning the right way to do things and cracking the whip (the right amount) when others don’t do the same.
Collaborator You don’t need to be the star on your projects, in fact, you’re brilliant at working with the team.
Brand-savvy You’ll help keep the AFFINITY brand consistent across our website, socials and in our monthly newsletter, OutThink.
Focussed As the effectiveness agency, results are everything. So it’s important that you always keep outcomes in mind.
Pumped You’re excited to contribute to a culture that inspires and celebrates learning.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
Thinking Every day, we want our people to go home smarter than they woke up. We’ll support you with initiatives like Thinking Thursday (a meeting free day) and Library Hour (an hour from 9am–10am every Tuesday morning to learn something new).
Project management We’ll teach you how to turn client briefings into real-world work, within budgets and deadlines.
Communication It sounds easy, but there’s so much to it. How you speak is how you manage workflow. And getting creatives, clients and strategists to finish work on time and on brief is an artform. We’ll teach you how to master it.
Personal branding We’ll also teach you how to write blogs. Then (so long as you’re happy with them) we’ll put them on our website and promote them through our socials. Publish two within a year and you’ll get a day off. Plus, you’ll also be given a safe environment to learn valuable public speaking skills through informal presentations.
The right people for AFFINITY believe in:
Courage – When our value comes from our thinking, we’re willing to take the leap.
Curiosity – Because finding the right answers comes from asking better questions.
Collaboration – When everyone puts thinking first (and egos last), the outcomes are inspired.
Craft – The devil is always in the detail. And it’s the difference between success and failure.
- As a Delivery Junior in our Delivery Team, you’ll be responsible for working directly with strategists and clients to ensure the effective translation of thinking into smart initiatives. You’ll be supported by our Delivery Manager, strategists and our subject matter experts.
- You’ll write task briefs that span a broad cross section of categories and challenges, from beer to beauty, websites to banners. Every day is different here.
- Sydney based, but flexibility built in.
- Genuinely supportive environment with an amazing team of thinkers – you will go to bed smarter every day than when you woke up.
