Business Director

  • Wellington

Media Agency Business Director opportunity in Wellington to work on one of NZ’s most important and innovative clients…

This is a maternity leave cover, but will be a permanent appointment…

You
Working on great brands is what gets you up on Monday morning; enthused and passionate about making a difference. You thrive on strategic thinking and are ready to step up or across into this senior media strategy planning role. Strong client relationship-building is part of your media DNA as is your ability to pull a team together and work collaboratively to produce award-winning work… on time, on budget and on-stage at the Beacons and Effies!

You get off on clients that demand excellence and who allow your innate planning skills to come the fore. You are already at a senior planning level but crave more variety and are seeking an environment that will allow you to grow into the senior management team sooner rather than later.

You are good on your feet in a presentation environment and enjoy developing insight-led strategic planning rationales that answer the client brief. You aren’t afraid of ROI challenges and enjoy working closely with your client base to understand the role of communications in the marketing plan. You need to be digitally-led, but you’re smart enough to already know that you need these skills.

Them
This centrally-located Wellington office of a global media agency group is looking for a Business Director to initially undertake a maternity cover role working with the agency’s largest client.

This is a seriously senior role critical to the continued health and relationships that exist between the agency and client, working in a modern environment at an agency that prides itself on its culture and cooperative working style. In keeping with the seniority of the role, to make sure of securing the right person for the job, the position will be a permanent deployment.

This is a great opportunity to become an important part of this busy media agency, which offers an energetic, team-player environment alongside ongoing personal career development and support. You will be working on some of the best brands in the market with some of the best people in town.

Us
If you wish to be part of a winning team environment, make the change you have always wanted. Send your CV to cv@3rdeye.co.nz quoting Ref #5380SP. Give Barry +64 21 984 114 or Ellana +64 21 467 499 a call.

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for: Spark by Colenso BBDO and PHD

Why we like it: Spark's Santaline has been taking children's wish list requests for the past 24 years, but this year, there will be someone there to answer the phone rather than it going through to voicemail. As the ad explains, the helpers were required to have a jolly disposition and that's on display as the Metlifecare retirees wear festive accessories and take calls with a big smile. It's also lovely to watch as the two generations of children and elderly are connected through a shared love of Christmas.

Who's it for: Westpac by FCB Media

Why we like it: The ad breaks may be full of Christmas spots and the holiday is drawing closer, but that doesn't mean it's time to stop looking at serious topics like diversity in business. Westpac gets straight to the point in this video with the findings from a Deloitte study, commissioned by the bank, that asked businesses to share their thoughts on women in leadership. The video lets the numbers speak for themselves before Westpac shares its views about the value of women's skills and diversity in the workplace. Paired with a print takeover that saw only 29 percent of the New Zealand Herald printed (to represent the percentage of women business leaders in New Zealand), this campaign made us sit up and pay attention.

Who's it for: TSB

Why we like it: Christmas day might see children running to the tree with excitement about what lies beneath but that doesn't mean adults don't have wish lists too. In the spot, TSB explores what makes the best present in the world and the varied responses show it's not always something that can be wrapped up and placed under a tree. We particularly love how the father goes from new sheets for his bed to an around the world trip to show his son all the different cultures.

Who's it for:Trade Me by DDB

Why we like it: If your friend accidentally puts a sculpture head through your parents' glass coffee table, don't fret, Trade Me has you covered. The narrative of parents going away on holiday and leaving the house under the responsibility of their party-loving teenagers is not a new one, but Trade Me's put its own spin on it to show how its service can come in handy to replace anything that gets damaged—or in this case, destroyed.
