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.

From what I heard, both companies were missing the mark so probably a smart move. Interesting that UX, CX and ‘organisational design’ (whatever that is) are cited as a core pillar of the combined entity when neither were considered strong ...
Isn't the whole point of this article to parody exactly that? I.e. the idea that many in the industry don't know what they're doing, which leads to all the flashy/fishy practices described in the article?
Not wanted in that agency were you? Cheer up.
Awful. Badly written, terribly made, no idea. I have no idea why you would PR this level of work.
Agency Wnk. The cold hard experience of being agencyside provides an understanding that most staffers even C level ad-types have no clue what they're doing.

Who’s it for: WorkSafe by Assignment Group.
Why we like it: Hilarious but serious, this ad from WorkSafe elicits both laughter and pensive thought as fictional commentators ‘Pat Silverwood’ and ‘Joe Munro’ give a play-by-play of workers actions. And while not all workplaces feature a pair of commentators armed with mics to make themselves heard, it's hoped the enjoyable campaign that will encourage Kiwis to ‘Use Your Mouth’ and speak up in the workplace.
Who’s it for: Icebreaker by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: Motion Sickness has blended storytelling with an ad in this beautifully shot video for Icebreaker. While the connection with Icebreaker isn't obvious from the start, as Riley Elliott's mulls over what makes him so passionate about sharks, we learn a lesson about facing and embracing fear—and it's one that suits the nature of the outdoor adventure brand.
Who’s it for: G.J. Gardner Homes by 99
Why we like it: Personalising a large company like G.J. Gardner Homes can be tough. But the company has done a nice job of giving local workers a face. Going from Queenstown to the Manawatu, franchisees speak about themselves, how they work and how they are involved with, and support, the local community around them. It's a good way to get to know those who are responsible for bringing to life the homes for G.J. customers.
