Communication managers - two fixed term contracts available

  • Auckland Central - Wynyard Quarter

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. We will provide an environment where you are supported to provide a high level of consultancy and best practise advice to ensure outstanding communication outcomes are produced.
The contract opportunities range from 4 - 12 month terms.

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.
