Junior Planner

  • Auckland Central

We have an exciting opportunity to join our fast-growing strategy function and work in a friendly, fast-paced team. We’re on the lookout for a Junior Planner who is innately curious about people, what moves them and inspires them. You have a finger on the pulse of the trends that are shaping and will shape the consumers’ world and will be comfortable leveraging data. You are excited by the possibilities of blending technology, data, strategy and creativity to deliver cutting edge work.

Ideally you should have some experience with data, quantitative and qualitative research, analysis and insights and be “channel agnostic”, plus have a passion for the customer experience and inspiring great work.

You will be able to synthesize and present complex information in a simple way, write creative briefs (or quickly learn) and be comfortable presenting to clients. A willingness to express a point of view to help clients grow and strong attention to detail would be valuable. And of course, you’ll be comfortable with measurement and reporting.

• Support the Planning Director in the development of communications strategy
• Champion and socialize research tools and interpret their outcomes
• Collate data and synthesize insight to guide clarification of creative and communication briefs
• Build customer journeys and contact strategies through data
• Help facilitate client and internal workshops
• Support new business pitches and engagements as required

If you this sounds like you, please send your CV and covering letter to opportunties@nz.ddb.com

Who's it for:  ASB by True

Why we like it: Clever Kash is back in the latest advert by ASB, but instead of telling us how to save money, he's focused on teaching kids how to save lives. First aid is an important skill for everyone, and empowering children to be able to make critical decisions when a loved one is hurt or unwell is nothing but a good thing. 

Who's it for: White Ribbon by in-house team and Ocean Design and Lot23

Why we like it: No one can deny that New Zealand has a serious problem with violence, particularly violence towards women. It's heartening to see a bunch of White Ribbon ambassadors open up the conversation and invite all men – regardless of whether they've ever been violent or not – to stand up against the culture of violence in this country.

Who's it for: Tower Insurance by Barnes, Catmur & Friends Dentsu

Why we like it: Insurance ads tend to follow a similar pattern, but this one injects a touch of humour to make it memorable. We all know accidents are a huge disruption to a well-curated daily routine, but Tower has the solution.
