Communications and PR Specialist | client-side

  • Auckland

Your chance to join an iconic international brand!

We are looking to fill a permanent role, however, if you are available for a short-term contract (and can start immediately) we would be interested to see your CV too.

This role is a cross between PR/comms and content. You may have come from an in-house comms role, from a PR agency, or possibly from a marketing role where you have had substantial media involvement.

It is essential that you have existing New Zealand media connections. Therefore, only candidates with a significant amount of relevant New Zealand experience will be considered for this role. You'll need to have built relationships with journalists, producers, and media owners, and be comfortable pitching stories and finding new and interesting content angles.

You'll have at least 3-5 years' of experience.

You'll be responsible for the positioning and delivery of this brand's communication across all types of media channels (social, web, TV, radio, and print), and you'll be working a lot within the sports and culture sector.

You will lead the activation plans for brand and product initiatives, and take full responsibility for all earned media activation (e.g. through influencer marketing and media relationship-building).

There will be some, more traditional, PR activities involved (crisis management, consumer affairs, product communication - B2B and B2C).

This company represents a well-known and fun international brand. They are located on the Auckland CBD fringe. You'll get a competitive salary plus the opportunity to earn extra from a bonus scheme and additional perks.

If you think this sounds like you, please click Apply via Email quoting reference #5890SP.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ.

Who's it for:  ASB by True

Why we like it: Clever Kash is back in the latest advert by ASB, but instead of telling us how to save money, he's focused on teaching kids how to save lives. First aid is an important skill for everyone, and empowering children to be able to make critical decisions when a loved one is hurt or unwell is nothing but a good thing. 

Who's it for: White Ribbon by in-house team and Ocean Design and Lot23

Why we like it: No one can deny that New Zealand has a serious problem with violence, particularly violence towards women. It's heartening to see a bunch of White Ribbon ambassadors open up the conversation and invite all men – regardless of whether they've ever been violent or not – to stand up against the culture of violence in this country.

Who's it for: Tower Insurance by Barnes, Catmur & Friends Dentsu

Why we like it: Insurance ads tend to follow a similar pattern, but this one injects a touch of humour to make it memorable. We all know accidents are a huge disruption to a well-curated daily routine, but Tower has the solution.
