What We’re Looking For
• 6+ Years Prior Media Experience
• Strong communication skills
• Effective time management
• Confidence in the area of media negotiation
• Ability to manage a small team of people
• Excellent client service skills
A Senior Business Manager takes on the bulk of the planning responsibilities in a team working to pull together media plans that complement the media strategy and ultimately the client brief. As the title suggests they are also responsible for managing their team and are a key player in managing the relationship with the client. The stretch for a Senior Business Manager from a Business Manager is the ability to manage smaller clients (or smaller divisions within large clients) with limited supervision taking on some of the more senior responsibilities on these clients.
Carat is wholly owned by Dentsu Aegis Network. With over 35,000 employees across 145 countries, Dentsu Aegis Network is the first truly global communications network for the digital age. Carat is one of New Zealand's largest leading media agencies and we are looking for a media savvy, enthusiastic and passionate Senior Business Manager to join our Auckland based team.
As an organisation we pride ourselves on being values led. Our vision globally is to innovate the way brands are built and we base this vision on our five key values of being Agile, Pioneering, Ambitious, Responsible, and Collaborative. Our values are core to the way we operate and think.
• Thorough understanding of the New Zealand media marketplace staying up to date with new innovations and technologies
• Strong understanding of the industries in client portfolio
• To oversee the buying and implementation of all media (incl. Digital)
• To work with the Executives and Coordinators in the team to buy planned TV
• To ensure quality control across all documents being sent to the client including but not limited to final buys, post analysis, competitive, media evaluations and schedules
• Prepare and present planning documents in line with strategies developed by strategy team
• To be the central point of coordination for a planning response document managing across the agency (sponsorship, digital, innovation, search etc.…) to create a single response to client briefs
• To brief media partners and evaluate their proposals in line with the Convergence Planning process
• To develop and maintain media schedules across client portfolio
• To sell recommendations to clients driving home the creativity, innovation and effectiveness of an idea
• Work closely with agency partners to create a cohesive plan that is executed on deadline
• To work independently on small to medium sized client with limited GBD/BD involvement, examples of this would include taking the lead with senior clients, presentation of all major documents, responsibility for annual media negotiations and contract compliance
• To effectively manage team to ensure progression through the agency, areas of management include recruitment, performance reviews and training

Who's it for: Spark by Colenso BBDO and PHD
Why we like it: Spark's Santaline has been taking children's wish list requests for the past 24 years, but this year, there will be someone there to answer the phone rather than it going through to voicemail. As the ad explains, the helpers were required to have a jolly disposition and that's on display as the Metlifecare retirees wear festive accessories and take calls with a big smile. It's also lovely to watch as the two generations of children and elderly are connected through a shared love of Christmas.
Who's it for: Westpac by FCB Media
Why we like it: The ad breaks may be full of Christmas spots and the holiday is drawing closer, but that doesn't mean it's time to stop looking at serious topics like diversity in business. Westpac gets straight to the point in this video with the findings from a Deloitte study, commissioned by the bank, that asked businesses to share their thoughts on women in leadership. The video lets the numbers speak for themselves before Westpac shares its views about the value of women's skills and diversity in the workplace. Paired with a print takeover that saw only 29 percent of the New Zealand Herald printed (to represent the percentage of women business leaders in New Zealand), this campaign made us sit up and pay attention.
Who's it for: TSB
Why we like it: Christmas day might see children running to the tree with excitement about what lies beneath but that doesn't mean adults don't have wish lists too. In the spot, TSB explores what makes the best present in the world and the varied responses show it's not always something that can be wrapped up and placed under a tree. We particularly love how the father goes from new sheets for his bed to an around the world trip to show his son all the different cultures.
Who's it for:Trade Me by DDB
Why we like it: If your friend accidentally puts a sculpture head through your parents' glass coffee table, don't fret, Trade Me has you covered. The narrative of parents going away on holiday and leaving the house under the responsibility of their party-loving teenagers is not a new one, but Trade Me's put its own spin on it to show how its service can come in handy to replace anything that gets damaged—or in this case, destroyed.
