Be part of the team that shares the story of ASB.
With over 5000 people located across the length and breadth of New Zealand, great internal communications is a core part of ASB's success. A few changes in the team means we have two fixed term contract opportunities for people to join our 'squad' to help us continue to uncover and tell the stories that connect ASB.
From product launches, to CEO updates, to stories about our Maori Intern programme or community partners, you will implicitly know what interests and engages people. You will understand that great workplace culture comes from within and ripples out via great communications. You'll also recognise that although we all work for the same organisation; everyone is an individual. We all relate and respond to channels and engagement techniques differently, which is why internal communications must be more dynamic than just hitting the 'send button'.
So what are we looking for from you?
You need to be creative, a challenger and a team player. You will thrive in both a reactive and time intensive environment and be comfortable working with moving goal posts and change. A strategic thinker you will be able to visualise different communication pathways and offer impeccable advice to stakeholders to deliver the right results, You will love technology and the opportunity it provides to reimagine internal communications. It goes without saying you will be positive and motivated plus able to write like a demon with an eye for accuracy!
But most importantly you will understand and love people.

Hey Fleur, so lovely to see a fellow agency leader be positive on this comments forum. Totally agree, it's always great when the good guys (this includes women) rise to the top. Hope all good with you, Dan
Excellent work. Hard to follow the Rhys Darby stuff, to try and keep some of that feeling but now look like a grown up telco. Nice balance here. 2nd Nature looks like one of those simple, long-term brand thoughts that ...
Great choice FCB. Blair is smart, collaborative and a genuinely great guy.
Boring and superficial, masquerading as insightful. Can we please stop making manifesto ads? It's not 1995 anymore.
And the first client leaves FCB...

Who is it for:2degrees by DDB
Why we like it: Nearly 10 years after its arrival in the market, 2degrees is making itself and its values known with a new brand campaign. While the services of the telco, including phone and internet, are intangible and encourage an esoteric approach to the marketing, this spot cleverly connects 2degrees with what it's all about: communication. With a mellow backing track and soft-voiced narrator, it explores all the different forms of communication while throwing in some humour like missing teeth and subtly calls out women for wearing activewear when visiting a cafe.
Who's it for: Samsung by Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish
Why we like it: Blink and you'll miss it. Samsung went bold to launch its new Galaxy S9 by placing 25 of the phones around a set that in five-seconds erupted into a display of colour and movement. The slow-motion video, the result of the display, highlights the camera as well as the technical nouse of Colenso BBDO and Flying Fish who bravely accepted the challenge and shot it all in front of a live audience.
Who's it for: Holden by Special Group
Why we like it: Faced with the challenge of people thinking its Australian factory was closing down, Holden's responded with this spot showing that's far from the case. As well as responding to the challenge at hand, the ad cleverly includes some promotion of specific car features and confirms the brand is here to stay by discussing what it has in store in the future.
Who's it for: Scapegrace by Motion Sickness
Why we like it: How do you change your name and make consumers aware of it? This spot by Scapegrace, formerly Rogue Society, does just that. It also helps customers accept the change by explaining the reason behind it, which in this case is a bonus lesson in international trade laws. StopPress' audience has responded well, with compliments for both the brand and agency and we agree it's a great piece of work.
