What an opportunity - this is your chance to be part of a challenger brand that's really going places
The result of a massive Australasian merger, Vocus Group is the ultimate challenger - agile, entrepreneurial, willing to take some (calculated) risks and with a culture that prides itself on its lack of politics and hierarchy. A hugely exciting time in its evolution, there's been lots of change but it's all been part of an ongoing strategy of growth and innovation. So, you'll need to be someone who thrives on working in fast-paced and fluid environments, and likes making decisions and making things happen.
Slingshot, Orcon and Flip - are all the consumer brands in the Vocus stable. Reporting to the Head of Consumer Marketing you'll deliver digital marketing campaigns and initiatives across all three. Working closely with both Acquisition and Retention Managers you will be responsible for taking the reins on implementing the digital elements of all campaign activity including agency briefing, inflight management and post campaign reporting. Beyond this you will also identify trends and opportunities that you will use to drive your own marketing activities.
So what are we looking for then? You'll really have to be a bit of a go-getter for this one. A well-rounded digital marketer with a keen eye for data, you'll be able to demonstrate strong campaign management experience and a proven track record of success in highly competitive markets. Although you will have the luxury of leveraging the experience of a senior marketing team around you, you will thrive on accountability, and bring real energy and a 'can do' attitude to the role. At the same time, you won't be afraid to try things that are a departure from the norm.
Ideally you will have:
End to end campaign management experience in HTML, Google Analytics, SEO and SEM
A high level of competence in measuring and planning Digital Always On
Understanding of marketing automation
Demonstrated experience in building strong working relationships with third party vendors and internal stakeholders
A tertiary qualification in marketing, business or similar is preferred
Experience with utility providers (power or telco) would be ideal but not essential

DDB are fantastic but if we are to believe gaining back the VW business and moving into the new Giltrap building are a total coincidence, they're not fooling anyone.
I don't work at DDB anymore but I can assure you they didn't lose the account back then due to the quality of the work. They won Effies and Creative awards the work they did and sold a lot of ...
Um, I’ve read the article. “DDB said it was because of the quality of the work that was done during the previous relationship.” When they got fired.
Um have you seen the quality of DDB's work lately? Speight's, Lotto, McDonald's, the scammers bot etc etc.
DDB: "Can we pretend we won it due to the quality of our work?" VW: "But we fired you because of the quality of your work." DDB: "Do you need a tenant or not?" VW: "Okay, whatever."
Part of the great north road office lease deal (DDB's new digs/Giltrap Building) was that it would come with the VW business. Good bye Grey's Ave, hello Grey Lynn.

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.
