EXTERNAL ENGAGEMENT DIVISION
Who we are
The University of Otago was established in 1869, just 21 years after the founding of the Otago province from which it takes its name. As New Zealand's first university, the vision was to build an enduring educational, cultural and economic force. Turning 150 in 2019, this deep-seated respect for education and drive to contribute to society through research and teaching remains stronger than ever.
Today, the University successfully balances its strong history and tradition with modern scholarship and outstanding research. Enjoying a worldwide reputation for research and academic excellence, it maintains well-established national and international linkages.
Ranked in the top 3% of Universities in the world, the University offers an outstanding education to over 20,000 students who enjoy living in New Zealand's only true University town. This is reflected in Otago's Five Star Plus QS star ranking for world-class quality and excellence, and being recognised as one of the most fifteen beautiful campuses in the world. The University has a national presence with substantial Schools of Medicine and Health Sciences located in Christchurch and Wellington. It also has a centre in Auckland and a College of Education campus in Invercargill.
With 4,000 full-time equivalent staff it is Dunedin largest employer. The University has assets of over $1.6 billion and is undertaking an ambitious capital development programme of over $650 million. The University has an unwavering commitment to build upon 150 years of outstanding achievement and recognises that its staff, both academic and professional, are the key to enduring success.
Now is an exciting time to join the University as we embark on a phase of growth following significant investment in central marketing services. Under the leadership of our recently appointed Director Marketing, the Marketing Services Division provides expert support and advice across a range of areas - events, design, content and publications, brand and sponsorships, and web.
This is a rare opportunity to take hold of one of New Zealand's most iconic and established brands. The Senior Manager Marketing and Advisory services will lead the strategic development of the University's brand, domestic marketing programmes, and the provision of marketing advisory services to the university through client portfolios. It is a key leadership position, managing a team of up to 16 marketing professionals.
Alongside the Director Marketing, this role will develop and implement brand strategy, and will provide expert opinion and specialist brand and marketing advice to executive management, and work with key stakeholders to identify and maximise domestic market opportunities.
Your Skills and Experience
To be successful in this key role, you will need significant demonstrated experience in:
• Managing and providing a spectrum of marketing services.
• Developing and implementing effective brand and marketing strategies.
• Positively managing senior stakeholder relationships.
• Planning and managing marketing programme budgets, and analysing and reporting on metrics.
• Managing a team of marketing professionals to deliver high quality outputs.
• Leading or managing digital transformation across a business.
You will be a passionate and enthusiastic marketer who is proactive and works collaboratively with your team. You will be consumer centric and insight driven, with a real desire to deliver exceptional results.
Although not necessary for success in this role, knowledge of markets, marketing relationships, and networks specific to Maori or Pacific Islands would be an advantage, as would knowledge of the tertiary education marketing environment.

It's "kooks it", ya kook.
The mistake in the Ad is when he says "kurks it,"which should be "karks it."
Most entertaining ad the warehouse has done in a very long time!
I have to laugh at the "% coverage" comment. "Unfortunately for TV ads, the research found on average that the TV covers only 5 percent of the living room when viewed from a couch – meaning 95 percent of the ...

Who's it for: Got A Trade by Ogilvy NZ
Why we like it: Got A Trade has gone down a clever route with its latest campaign by disguising the ad as a music video. Featuring New Zealand and Australian rock royalty – the offspring of Neil Finn and Jimmy Barnes – the highlight is the moving set pieces made by the real-life apprentices and trainees. A fun, inventive and relatable spot.
Who's it for: The Warehouse by DDB New Zealand
Why we like it: The Warehouse gets the right recipe with its campaign for Kiwi Scrabble – you can’t go wrong with much-loved Kiwi celebrities chef/author Jo Seagar and boxer David Tua. In the spot Seagar gives it her all, igniting the age-old debate over who is the rightful owner of the pavlova – New Zealand or Australia. It’s funny and fresh and will get you craving a piece of pav.
Who's it for: Air New Zealand
Why we like it: Babies are in the news at the moment (looking at you Meghan and Harry) and while Air New Zealand’s latest campaign predates the Royal announcement, who can go past cute, smiley cherubs. While most of the babes are happy in the Skycouch, it’s nice to see a few tears which are definitely a reality for parents out there.
