Senior Business Manager

  • Auckland

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

The Role
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.

The Opportunity
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.

Our Values
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.

Key Responsibilities:
• 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

If you meet the criteria above and are interested in joining the fast paced world of media and digital marketing communications then send your CV to recruitment.nz@dentsuaegis.com

We look forward to hearing from you!

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for: New World by 99

Why we like it: Noel is back and you know what that means—Christmas is just around the corner. The loveable Noel, a New World staff member by day and Santa by night, has been making heads turn since his debut appearance in 2014 and this year, his secret identity is finally revealed in a daydream. The media frenzy and arrest differentiate this spot from other Christmas campaigns as well as the previous, less action-packed ads featuring a slightly less conspicuous version of the character. Let's just hope that Noel's vision of Santa being arrested doesn't come true.

Who's it for: Arnott's by Y&R and Curious Film

Why we like it: The wait is over. Steve Hansen and Zoë Bell have managed to save the world. 'Apocalypse Steve Hanse', has to be one of the most bizarre campaigns of the year but it deserves credit for breaking the mould of the traditional TVC by creating a short film for the big screen. It's also good to see Hansen and Bell share the lead roles in what is an audacious bit of storytelling from the team at Y&R.  

Who's it for: Briscoes by Ogilvy & Mather

Why we like it: We may be six weeks out from Christmas, but for many, the festive fun starts now with decorating the house. Briscoes is getting into the fun and amping it up with the addition of a surprise. It's given Trevor's bachelor pad a Christmas makeover and it's hard to avoid the warm fuzzies as you see his friends and family come out to help before the big reveal. 

Who's it for: Kiwiplates by Saatchi & Saatchi

Why we like it:  Personalised number plates have long been a car accessory for extroverts but Kiwiplates is on a mission to make them mainstream. Last year, the company's managing director, Rob Kent, told NZ Herald it wanted to "normalise personal plates to make it more socially acceptable for everyone" and this spot is a sign of that mission, with the takeaway message being one about the personalised plates suiting everyone's activities.
