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.

Responsibilities:
• 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

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who’s it for: Sky by DDB

Why we like it: What first appears to be the start of a drama turns out to be a campaign promoting Sky's drama line-up. The calibre of the acting (Hacksaw Ridge’s Tyler Coppin and Top of the Lakes’ Alison Bruce), the director (Academy Award nominee Derin Seale) and minimal use of lighting lends itself to a sophisticated and suspenseful ad you wish was a series on its own. It's also a  great use of breaking through the fourth estate with the cheating husband describing what’s happening to get people thinking about the husband and wife's relationship as well as the genre in general.

Who’s it for: Lightbox by Spark PR & Activate

Why we like it: We like things with a New Zealand twist and this one playing on American drama Suits brings big laughs with its deft touch of Kiwi awkwardness. The 80s mise-en-scene, mundane jobs and forced office comradery - far from the polished and exciting drama of the proper Suits - is a fun and funny way to introduce the newest season. 

Who’s it for: Survivor New Zealand by TVNZ

Why we like it: Brandishing blood and mud, Survivor New Zealand is back for round two in northern Thailand. While the scenery looks idyllic, it's set to be an intense and exciting time if the promotional video is anything to go by, with mud wrestling, tears, dubious tactics from participants, success and disappointments galore on show. While Survivor has been reproduced many times around the world, local faces and scraps should bring the viewers onboard for another reality competition.
