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

We look forward to hearing from you!

Really. Is the humour back, is it? There are just terrible, surely you can see that.
Sorry. Where was the humour exactly? Were you watching it backwards perhaps?
Love your work Angela! The creative agency behind ASB's True Rewarden was WiTH Collective - check out the article here http://stoppress.co.nz/news/keeping-law-and-order-collective-and-asb-team-true-rewards-re-brand
Awesome to see 2 degrees getting some humour back after all those years of speaking to the public like they were a bank
Better to ask agencies who have worked with Steve what their favourite Steve Bayliss quote is surely?
Honouring the ads—and the agencies responsible for them—that make the biggest impact on consumers and get more bang for the client’s buck.

Who’s it for: Mitsubishi by Assignment Group
Why we like it: In a slightly dystopic and animalistic car spot, Mitsubishi has promoted its new Triton Huntaway II. The video sees the ute travelling over rugged Wellington terrain and highlights the vehicles multiple features. The campaign is based on exclusivity as Mitsubishi’s new ute has just 20 up for grabs. To provide further hype to its audience, the ad finishes with the line, “if you don’t catch it now, you won’t see it for dust”.
Who’s it for: 2degrees by DDB
Why we like it: 2degrees continue to expose the unusual nature of everyday gestures in its latest spot that lingers over three couples shaking hands. In a world of sloppy, or overly stiff hand-shakes, it is good to see the act of peace and trade be scrutinised. Described as ‘pumping someone up and down as if they are low on air’ the spot films handshakes in slow motion and scrutinises the instinctive way in which we communicate. The spot is a part of 2degrees ‘Second Nature’ campaign, which releases multiple ads and gives focus to the contribution of 2degrees in helping Kiwi businesses up and down the country.
Who’s it for: TVNZ by TVNZ’s Blacksand
Why we like it: Last week, Deadpool hijacked TVNZ’s brand assets, gate crashed multiple TVNZ channel idents and appeared in a Broadcasting Standards spot for TVNZ. The character, played by famous American actor Ryan Reynolds, saw a one-off opportunity for TVNZ, who utilised the sarcastic superhero across multiple platforms and programmes. The ads coincided with the release of Deadpool 2, which is currently on screen in cinemas.
