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.

Who's it for: Air New Zealand by True

Why we like it: With all the attention the plant-based Impossible Burger has been getting in the media lately, the border security officer's assessment it being a celebrity is not unjustified. It's been a controversial arrival, with acting prime minister Winston Peters and former primary industries minister Nathan Guy calling out the airline for not promoting local meat, while others have praised it for the vegetarian-friendly addition. For those who haven't caught up on the news, alongside some dad jokes about spreading buns and meaty looking plants, the ad does a good job of explaining Air New Zealand's new meat-free meal.

Who's it for: Tourism New Zealand by Augusto

Why we like it: Like previous tourism campaigns New Zealand's beautiful landscapes are once again on show but this spot has a point of difference as it also highlights Kiwi's welcoming nature. From a simple "hi" as people pass on a track to a "kia ora" when walking on the beach, the video journeys across the country with visitors making themselves at home as it goes. And for those of us watching from New Zealand it makes us feel proud to be a Kiwi.

Who's it for:Lightbox NZ by Shine

Why we like it: We all know moths are attracted to the light, but who knew they are eager movie watches. Dressing humans as moths to crash a couple's quiet night in with a film is certainly a unique, and kind of creepy, approach for Lightbox to take to promote its movie offering but it got us talking.
