Creative Strategist - Auckland Media Owner

    Creative Strategy & Business Development opportunity at this leading Auckland Media Group…

    YOU
    You live for the next creative/media brief to showcase your strategic thinking.

    You enjoy creating and fostering strong client relationships based on mutual respect and the drive to achieve respective business outcomes.

    Your point of difference is your creative mind combined with an ability to strategise to a communications brief and develop bespoke campaign concepts to sell into agencies and direct clients… an agency that isn’t an agency… perfect!

    This is a rare opportunity to be the ‘ideas’ person to drive this important and growing aspect of the media company’s business and to increase revenue into new and exciting areas.

    THEM
    The role is that of Strategist… combining ideation with strategy development to major communications briefs. This is the chance to be a key component at this award-winning business development unit within the major Auckland-based publishing company. The unit is tasked with the creation of business solutions that extend beyond the immediate environment of owned media channels, in order to provide customised communications solutions that answer business objectives.

    Call it an in-house mini advertising agency; it operates in a similar fashion, developing creative ideas around their media assets on behalf of agency and direct client partners. The thinking goes beyond traditional media solutions into integrated content generation inside and outside of the media channels themselves… including events, sponsorships and other communications opportunities.

    Centrally situated in the Auckland CBD, this media market leader is driving integrated solutions across its publishing and digital assets… this is a great opportunity for someone to lead innovation and work with a small team of content integration, implementation and insights people.

    TVC OF THE WEEK

    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.
