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
So if this sounds like you, click "apply via web". We look forward to your application.
Wow, worst ad i've seen in a looong time. Actually made me cringe.
Well done Nigel, energy and fun and success abounds.
And the race to the bottom continues for media agencies.
Tone deaf, out of touch, and choosing not to address a single issue that matters. Yep, this is an advertisement for the National party all right.
Really sad that Labour has become what it is today. The disappearing Middle Class and lower need a voice - Labour used to be it. Let's see how the Greens go.
The mind boggles at this stupidity and disrespect.
Honouring the ads—and the agencies responsible for them—that make the biggest impact on consumers and get more bang for the client’s buck.

Who's it for: Vogel's by Shine and Curious Films
Why we like it: Achieving diversity in a campaign to truly reflect what a country looks like is no easy task, with many efforts coming across as contrived, fabricated efforts. However, this spot by Vogel's avoids all these pitfalls by bringing a collection of eight exceptional stories together around a single table. In doing so, the bread brand shows us what it means to be a Kiwi at a time when the country is changing. And it's a message that's resonated with consumers, with Facebook comments including remarks like "a truly beautiful advert", "the best advert I have seen in a very long time", "brilliant effort to illustrate how wonderful, unique and diverse NZers are" and "talk about bring a tear to your eye".
Who's it for: BMW by Flying Fish
Why we like it: Recognise Karangahape Road and Fort Lane in this spot? No need for a double take, it's them. Not only does this spot showcase the new BMW, it also turns Auckland into a driver's dream, with empty streets and a long unoccupied straight across the Harbour Bridge. Even if it's not quite a true representation of the usually traffic-filled city that cars crawl through on most days, it's a great opportunity for our local city to be seen around the world as well as the production company Flying Fish.
Who's it for:Whittaker's by Assignment Group.
Why we like it: It's been a while since we've seen Nigella Lawson front a Whittaker's campaign and this time she's joined by British comedians Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley and Bill Bailey who all appear to fizz over the brand's new Destinations range. While Lawson has typically taken a sultry tone in Whittaker's spots, this time, she barely gets a word in as her friends take more of 'a children in a candy store' approach to building hype over flavours like 'Nicaraguan Heirloom Dark Chocolate', 'Italian Piedmont Hazelnut' and 'Caramelised Pecans, Waffle and Canadian Maple Syrup'.
