Savvy Media Sales Specialist

Savvy Media Sales Specialist – Social Media Content platform... create your own job title!
This video-based Youth News Brand start-up requires a dynamic content and social media sales, go-getter. This is a great opportunity for a young and dynamic sales person to develop this commercial opportunity from the ground up.

You will have 3+ years’ experience ideally in media sales under your belt and looking for the flexibility and freedom of a social media start-up aimed at the youth market. You will be digitally-savvy and if you are currently working in sales in a digital or social media environment, even better.
Whilst age is not a precursor for this role, the ability to empathise and relate to this niche video content-led medium is essential. But above all, you need to have media sales or related youth sales experience, as you will need to be able to develop business opportunities with direct advertisers as well as representing the brand to media agencies.

This recent start-up is an independent part of a major media organisation, creating and distributing dynamic content across social platforms. Launched a year ago, the brand has built a strong following and has a high level of engagement. Staffed by a group of young and passionate social media experts, the organisation is such that you can design your own job title!
The role is to take the existing content-led approach and monetise this exciting youth brand, so a strong sales presence is a mandate for the role.

This is your chance to be a part of an exciting, young, innovative team and make your mark at the grass-roots of a dynamic and growing digital media brand.

Only short-listed candidates will be contacted. Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ.

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.
