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!
Sounds good. Though, with a reduction in the average number of agencies per pitch, I hope there are some provisions encouraging testing out smaller or new agencies as well. Look forward to reading.
Perhaps Agencies could employ these same best practice parameters when pitching Directors against each other?
When did JustOne become a 'digital specialist agency'?
An unsurprising but still disappointing decision from the toothless ASA and BSA - did TVCAB have any opinion on this? http://www.medialawjournal.co.nz/?p=682
I wasn't going to congratulate Craig on his appointment to MBM. Now I'll send him condolences.
Dick move from GF. Not their first, probably won't be their last.

Who's it for: Ecostore by DDB
Why we like it: For its first brand campaign, Ecostore is making itself heard with a powerful message about the future that will have the audience questioning their outlook. As a brand that promotes itself as being safe for consumers and the world they live in, examining the dichotomy between the optimism of youth and the pessimism of the older generation shows our environment doesn't have to be set for a future of melted ice caps and deforestation. There is hope out there and clearly, Ecostore wants to be apart of it.
Who's it for: Flick Electric by Special Ad Service
Why we like it: While many people have their aha moments in the shower or while exercising, others, according to Flick Electric, have them while performing taxidermy on birds. It may be an odd image for a power company, but the tongue-in-cheek approach shows the company is willing to have a bit of fun as it goes about recruiting new customers.
Who's it for: Jockey New Zealand by Parlour
Why we like it: It's hard to ignore the obvious appeal of seeing the All Blacks strip down to their Jockeys for the entirety of the video and for those who aren't as fazed by what lies beneath the black jersey, it's an insight into what the boys get up to off the field. Apparently, Anton Lienert Brown enjoys peanut butter on toast and sailing. And while special guest and former Shortland Street star Will Hall doesn't strip down completely, a special mention has to be given to his bravery to sit alongside the undressed All Blacks in just Jockeys and a robe.
