We are looking for a Junior Planner who is innately curious about trends and culture – occurring at both the global and local level, and at both the center and the outskirts of society. Ideally you will have a finger on the pulse of the trends that are shaping and will shape the world, and be comfortable working with both big data and smaller, human insights. You will be able to forecast the macro-level shifts that will affect the long-term future, as well as be able to distill what’s happening today and tomorrow across a wide range of industries and demographics.
You should be experienced with quantitative and qualitative research, analysis and insights.
You should be able to design research and source respondents.
You should be comfortable standing up in a room and verbally presenting your findings.
You should be able to write creative briefs, present to clients, design and run workshops, as well as work with other strategic planners, new business teams and creative teams.
You will need to have (or quickly develop) expert skills across social listening platforms, an ability to find harmony from disparate sources (identify patterns), and the confidence to engage with clients as needed.
• Translate intelligence into actionable insights for clients through reports
• Leading research projects (designing research, executing research, analysing it and writing reports)
• Develops and delivers insights, both internally and externally, that drive brand strategy and innovation
• Manages various data-monitoring platforms including set-up, keyword and query optimisation
• Maintains subject matter expertise on the evolving cultural, social and digital media landscape, including assisting in ongoing evaluation of monitoring platforms for purposes of platform optimisation
Nice work guys.
Abolustely gutted to see Paul go, he’s been an awesome leader at 99 and bought a great vibe to the agency. He will no doubt smash it on his next endeavour and I wish him all the best, they are ...
What a loss for 99, but I’m sure Troy will carry on your good work. A true advertising legend and an agent of change leaving before the fruits of his labour are fully realised. Best of luck Paul in your ...
No mention of Ali Mau? I would hope Mediaworks are - at the very least - retaining her as a fill-in presenter for any of the key roles?
Sounds great; I'm looking forward to the new channel. Congratulations to Three for their much deserved success in the ratings.
Predictable, safe and vanilla. Will be forgotten pretty quickly I suspect.

Who's it for: Super Rugby by Sugar & Partners
Why we like it: Super Rugby is typically a fast-paced game, but to promote the season Sugar & Partners have slowed down the action to ensure audiences don't miss a thing. Despite the change of pace, the excited fans jumping around, motocross rider and confetti ensure the campaign continues to build on the hype generated in previous campaigns. The music by local artist Kings also helps to provide energy—did you spot him in the crowd?
Who's it for:The New Zealand Olympic Committee by Saatchi & Saatchi
Why we like it: Competing on a global stage is no easy feat, and that's before cold temperatures, wind and snow are added. This campaign takes New Zealanders behind the scenes of the Winter Olympics to see what it takes get there and hopefully win a medal. In this particular video, featuring Janina Kuzma, the choice to not add music and leave the wind as the only sound emphasises the harsh conditions she trains in and her dedication to the sport.
Who's it for: Kiwibank by Hello
Why we like it: Kiwibank is bidding farewell to student giveaways and acknowledging the demographic is not only motivated by freebies. Instead, this campaign, featuring Shortland Street's Jayden Daniels, ties into the brand's wider campaigns about investing in a locally owned bank. And if that message alone isn't enough to make students sit up and listen, the inclusion of Daniels taking his shirt off is sure to generate some attention.
