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 synthesise 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

Who’s it for: Auckland City Mission by 99
Why we like it: To encourage donations to the Auckland City Mission, and less waste during the festive season, this ad is a mix of humour and seriousness to highlight the City Mission’s new initiative. Instead of buying a silly gift which never gets used – a rubber chicken or chattering teeth for example – buy one off the website, through which the money goes to the City Mission and the recipient gets an email. It’s a great idea for a wonderful cause.
Who’s it for: Lotto New Zealand by DDB
Why we like it: Who doesn’t love a joyful reunion (Love Actually anyone?) – Lotto’s latest ad, part of the Imagine campaign, reunites the two armoured truck drivers in a Christmas surprise. While it may not have quite the same impact if you didn’t see the Amoured Truck spot, it’s still festive enough to make you smile.
Who’s it for: Pak’n’Save by FCB
Why we like it: Stickman is celebrating Christmas with his cousin Snowy the Snowman. As usual, the spots have Stickman poking a bit of fun at the often mundane task of grocery shopping. Let's hope that Snowy survives the Kiwi heat.
