We’re MediaWorks. We talk to 96% of Kiwis on a regular basis, with our exciting mix of radio, television, digital and live media brands. The people are awesome and no two days are the same.
You’re an experienced EA, with exceptional communication and organisational skills. We’d love it if you have media experience, but it’s not a deal breaker. More important is your ability to prioritise tasks…and then reshuffle those priorities, as things can change with very little warning.
You’re used to ensuring that everything runs smoothly, efficiently and effectively. If people regularly say, “Gee, this place would fall apart without you”…then you’re exactly the kind of person we need!
Based in Eden Terrace, the primary function of this position is to support and anticipate the requirements of two of our favourite people in the whole world: the Chief Content Officer and Group Head of Communications. Make them look good, and you’ll look good too.
You’ll have the opportunity to help plan and execute complex events in NZ and overseas. You’ll also be working across two exciting departments – Content and Communications, so there’s plenty of variety in the role.
This a busy job, so sometimes you may be required to work outside of regular office hours. But we can promise the work is interesting and rewarding (scouts honour). If you thrive in a fast-paced environment, you’ll love it!

Just a couple of things worth a mention:

I like it
As David Ogilvy would say ... perhaps the advertising agency thinks the public find the actual products as boring as the agency does.
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: Forsyth Barr/Summer by FCB New Zealand
Why we like it: New Zealanders are notorious for taking serious decisions lightly and this tongue-in-cheek ad by FCB for Forsyth Barr’s Summer KiwiSaver scheme gets that tone just right. A human-sized sheep in trendy clothing talking about his negligence towards his financial responsibilities is enough to get a chuckle out of anyone. The thinly veiled analogy to ‘not be a sheep(le)’ and take responsibility is not preachy but light-hearted.
Who’s it for: ANZ by TBWA
Why we like it: We all know it’s rare to see a heart-to-heart between two men on television so it’s nice to see just that in ANZ’s new KiwiSaver ad by TBWA. The way KiwiSaver is brought up in the ads is pretty clunkily approached but adding other topics such as dating, household chores and life makes the ad an endearing watch.
Who’s it for : Spark by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: Matariki season is bringing with it a lot of joy and pride nationwide this year. Spark’s unique video embraces what is important about our very own New Year – family, traditions and knowledge. More an educational resource than ad, the care taken to make the imagery and sentiment culturally appropriate is evident in the decision to include all nine Matariki stars. The animation artfully articulates the stories behind the constellation while the te reo Māori script is as much soothing as it is exciting to see the language celebrated.
