Category Marketing Specialist

  • Auckland - Albany

Mitre 10 needs no introduction as a proudly New Zealand owned and operated business – you see us in almost every town in NZ through our MEGA, Mitre 10 and Hammer Hardware stores. And you have an opportunity to join our team!

This marketing position is within a busy, ever changing retail environment, so we are looking for someone who can carve their mark in an environment that is sometimes quite fluid and deadline driven. This is a role where you can really develop your reputation as an emerging star.

You will work closely with our Category Managers to create and deliver marketing campaigns and initiatives that optimise sales results, brand attribution and customer engagement.

This will see you develop a robust understanding of the home improvement categories you support, gaining insight into multi-channel opportunities, channel effectiveness and customer behaviour.

Reporting to the Manager - Marketing Operations, this role will see you providing support in three key areas:
• Campaign management – manage all aspects of a given promotion to ensure brand standard compliance, operational briefing packs are compiled and pre and post campaign analysis undertaken to understand effectiveness and inform future campaigns;
• “Go to Market” planning – gather market and customer data to identify channel appropriateness and messages, assisting in the development of media schedules, promotional calendars and creative development; and
• Communication – ensure all internal and external stakeholders are fully briefed on promotional objectives, creative content and media channels to ensure objectives, strategies and brand standards are delivered as required.

This role has a strong communications element, requiring someone who can work well with others, and utilise effective communication, negotiation and diplomacy skills. We therefore require you to have an excellent command of the spoken and written English language, along with strong people skills.

To be successful you will have 3-5 year’s post-graduation marketing experience, ideally within a retail or product environment, a good understanding of the production process and media planning to deliver multi-channel campaigns, excellent attention to detail and planning skills, and the ability to embrace change and continuous improvement.

If this sounds like you, please forward your CV and cover letter, including salary expectations via the weblink NOW.

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for: TAB by Y&R

Why we like it: New Zealand might not be in the FIFA World Cup, but that doesn't mean the country can't get involved in the action. While Mexican fans caused an earthquake when their team won against Germany, closer to home, Kiwis risk smashed breakfast dishes if they wake up to a successful bet if this TAB spot is anything to go on. Brace yourselves flatmates, friends and family members of soccer fans, the table diving, hallway sliding and bedroom dancing could strike at your place.

Who's it for: Beehive by Contagion

Why we like it: "Smell the roses" they say, but what about bacon? Beehive's getting creative with the familiar scent of bacon while pointing out the truths behind some of life's absurdities. We enjoy the fun of the campaign that's sure to hit home to all, with jokes about parenthood, young love and online scams among others. The campaign's also well set up to respond to topical issues and has already joked about the meeting of US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un with the line "We couldn't feel safer".

Who's it for: Electric Kiwi by Brand World

Why we like it: Given electricity's intangible nature, advertising has long turned to promoting the benefits of it and Electric Kiwi is calling out the trend. It's playing with the idea of farming power by bottling up fresh electrons because "only the freshest will do" and the result is a delightful exchange between a grandfather and his granddaughter, who is sceptical of the farmed electrons. 

Who's it for: Air New Zealand by True

Why we like it: Despite their wings, takahē are a flightless bird so Air New Zealand is giving them a helping hand by offering up its wings. The airline is promoting its partnership with the Department of Conservation by sharing the journey of 18 takahē that have been released into the wild. The precious passengers are the first of their kind to be released onto mainland New Zealand and to show their importance, each was strapped into its own seat on the flight.
