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: Fly Buys by Colenso BBDO

Why we like it: While Fly Buys points are often a self-gratifying reward, this spot flips that idea on its head to celebrate the feeling you get when giving a gift. New Zealanders (and their dogs apparently) are a pretty generous bunch, which is why Fly Buys has launched the campaign to demonstrate how it can play a part in that giving.

Who's it for: Men's Health Trust by Men's Health Trust 

Why we like it: It's often said men struggle to talk about their physical and emotional wellbeing, but Men's Health Trust has managed to get 12 of them to sit down in front of the camera and open up. With the aim of getting men talking in order to reduce the statistic of one Kiwi man dying every three hours from a preventable cause, prominent New Zealanders (including Te Radar, Jack Tame and Selio Solomon) share their health related stories and talk about what it means to be a Kiwi bloke.

Who's it for: McDonald's by DDB

Why we like it: To announce that it's achieved 100 percent free-range egg use across its New Zealand restaurants, McDonald's has called-in the help of comedian Rhys Mathewson and a Robo Chicken. By sending the remote-controlled chicken into one of the farms supplying it with eggs, the spot is able to push McDonald's commitment to free range produce, as well as explain to viewers what the term actually means.

Who's it for:  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword by Roadshow Films and Undertow Media

Why we like it: Promoting an international blockbuster by changing up the trailer with a local twist isn't an approach we've seen before, but the use of WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker and UFC fighter Dan Hooker (in a second trailer) is sure to get some attention. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is about Arthur's journey to becoming a legendary fighter and leader, so who better to incorporate into that than Parker, a professional fighter, who speaks about how he overcame his own trials and pain.
