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.

that's what we heard
any truth to the rumour that they have dumped 2D for Voda?
Very well played R&R (aged 5) and Special (aged 10) from all of us at the adolescent Big (aged 15).
Wonder what NZ Governments tax take is from the top 4 ranked websites. I think we can probably describe it as SF & A

Who’s it for: Auckland City Mission by 99
Why we like it: To encourage donations to the Auckland City Mission, and less waste during the festive season, this ad is a mix of humour and seriousness to highlight the City Mission’s new initiative. Instead of buying a silly gift which never gets used – a rubber chicken or chattering teeth for example – buy one off the website, through which the money goes to the City Mission and the recipient gets an email. It’s a great idea for a wonderful cause.
Who’s it for: Lotto New Zealand by DDB
Why we like it: Who doesn’t love a joyful reunion (Love Actually anyone?) – Lotto’s latest ad, part of the Imagine campaign, reunites the two armoured truck drivers in a Christmas surprise. While it may not have quite the same impact if you didn’t see the Amoured Truck spot, it’s still festive enough to make you smile.
Who’s it for: Pak’n’Save by FCB
Why we like it: Stickman is celebrating Christmas with his cousin Snowy the Snowman. As usual, the spots have Stickman poking a bit of fun at the often mundane task of grocery shopping. Let's hope that Snowy survives the Kiwi heat.
