Digital Editor - Dish

  • Auckland

One of New Zealand’s best-loved food magazines, Dish, is looking for a Digital Editor with a passion for food and lifestyle to manage and drive our digital platforms and have an active role in commercializing the brand’s digital offerings.

The ideal candidate will have five years’ experience in journalism, preferably in magazines, news or online, and be able to turn around copy efficiently and cleanly, have an eye for detail and be an experienced digital native. They must be self-motivated, hard-working and more than capable of managing and meeting their deadlines.

The role involves pitching, creating and editing lively original content for the website and social platforms. There will also be some content contribution to the magazine required. The successful applicant will have their finger on the pulse of what is new and noteworthy within the food and lifestyle space. Implementing Dish’s social media strategy is paramount to this role.

Social media never sleeps so this role involves some after-hours commitment, including events and launches.

The successful candidate will work closely with both the editorial and sales team and will have a role in meeting Dish’s commercial digital targets. Must be proficient in Google Analytics, have worked across CMS and social media insights platforms.

Dish is produced by ICG Media, New Zealand’s leading specialist media business focusing on deep engagement across all channels, with clearly targeted communities of interest. As part of the wider Image Centre Group, ICG Media is also at the forefront of content marketing as a specialist marketing discipline.

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.
