Work for Slingshot, one of Australia’s Top 20 Best Places to Work.

Slingshot is a specialist agency in the most literal sense.

Many people believe that all agencies are essentially the same. And it is true, most are. While many of our agency services will be familiar, how we deliver them and the results they achieve, are refreshingly different.

It’s tough to define exactly what it takes to be a ‘Slinger’. There are common traits across all of us of course; we value empathy highly, we are candid, preferring to see the truth and speak the truth. We are a spirited bunch who are enormously invested in our clients, in the agency and in each other.

We were named the No.1 media agency that develops their people and talent in the latest Media-I survey. We were also voted the No.1 agency for culture. Most recently, we were listed as one of the Best Places to Work in 2021 by WRK+. We are very proud of these achievements.

The Business Director is responsible for leading and managing successful client and media relationships and fostering and nurturing a results-driven team.

They report to the Head of Client Service and work with other agency departments to identify opportunities for clients (across strategy, digital, data, content and production)

What You Need to be Successful:

  • Sound knowledge and experience in all facets of media planning and buying
  • Proven ability and experience in effectively leading and managing a team
  • Experience in and understanding of business management requirements and financial impacts
  • Minimum 7+ years’ experience
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills as well as presentation skills
  • Relationship building skills with your team, clients and media

The Slingshot Difference:
At Slingshot, we live by our values. They define what we stand for, how we work with our clients and partners, and how we interact with each other. They are the pulse of the company, our very own Slinger code.

Empathy: Walk a mile in their shoes.
Candour: Clear is kind.
Invested: In it with you, always.
Spirited: We love what we do and it shows.

What’s in it for You?
Learning: A full day dedicated to learning and development each month. 5% of your time is dedicated to learning and development
Working from home: Since 2019 (pre-COVID) ‘Slingers’ have had the freedom to choose 2 days a week to work from home coupled with all the technology to support them
