Idealog's vision is to equip New Zealanders with the inspiration and knowledge to help make New Zealand a more prosperous place. And we're looking for a commercial manager to make Idealog a more prosperous place and continue the momentum the award-winning title has built up over its 11-year history.
Covering technology, innovation, design, marketing, exporting and start-ups – and where these things intersect with culture – Idealog is published in print form three times a year in themed editions (technology, innovation and design) and delivers daily news and commentary through our website, EDMs and social channels. It also runs a number of live events.
Named Business Magazine of the Year for eight years in a row between 2005 and 2013, Idealog is one of the largest circulating business titles in New Zealand.
You will be engaging with audiences and advertisers across print, digital, social and events media. You need to bring to the table an understanding of modern media, the ability to multi-task and good ol' fashioned elbow grease.
Dealing with agencies as well as direct clients will be part of your day-to-day requirements and you will need to be able to deliver big deals across traditional advertising, creative sponsorship and branded content. The ability to think creatively with regard to finding new funding sources would also be valuable.
You will work closely with the publisher, the editorial staff, video production team, marketing and events managers, and commercial managers from other Tangible Media titles. You will report to the publisher.
This is a challenging but rewarding role. Tangible Media offers a stimulating, challenging and creative environment.
If you are interested in joining an innovative, dynamic and independent media company, please send your CV and covering letter to the publisher/editorial director Ben Fahy.
All the best Damien. A class act.

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.
