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.
What ASB can offer you.
As a Comms Professional this is your chance to gain experience working for one of New Zealand's most loved and high profile brands. This role is a unique opportunity to gain exposure to key stakeholders across ASB including our Executive team.

Who's it for: ASB by With Collective and Curious Films
Why we like it: The True Rewarden sheriff is back – and she’s here to teach us a lesson at the True Rewarden Academy training camp. The spot is simple and effective, with the sheriff explaining what True Rewards can be used for. We like Rachel House as the ‘True Rewarden’ as she brings great humour to the ad and hope ASB continues using the sheriff for further campaigns.
Who's it for: LifeDirect by Trade Me by Y&R and Flying Fish
Why we like it: We all know unfortunate events happen to everyone at some time and we should be prepared. While most of us probably won’t end up in a shark's mouth, this is the premise of the hilarious new spot from LifeDirect by TradeMe. While the Jaws-esque ad is a change from Simon the Sloth (RIP), it's nice to see a bit of humour and fun injected into what can be a sometimes boring (but necessary) industry.
Who's it for: Phloe from Douglas Pharmaceuticals by YoungShand and Reel Factory
Why we like it: We can't go past ads that feature cute dogs and this one is no exception. Using a parade of misbehaving pooches to bring up the issue of bowel health is a clever move from Phloe. It's not clinical or scary and will ensure the audience is watching. Will be interesting to see how this campaign develops further or if another direction is taken.
