About the role:

We believe children and young people are taonga. In this role, you will be responsible for the creation and execution of our marketing strategy that will lead to a country where everyone shares this belief.

Through your work, the public’s awareness of vulnerable children and young people will be increased.

The public will also be motivated to take actions that will support vulnerable children and young people - helping them to thrive.

About us:

The new Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki is dedicated to supporting any child or young person in New Zealand whose wellbeing is at significant risk of harm now, or in the future.

A child-centred approach is at the heart of everything we do. This starts and ends with the voices of the children and young people we are here to support.

These voices inform any decision-making that affects them, at both and individual and systemic level. This approach also means that, at every step of our work, we ask ourselves “Is this the right thing to do for children and young people?”

Skills and experience:

You’ll have substantial experience building awareness and driving change through social marketing.

You will have managed large marketing campaigns, campaign related budgets and agency relationships.

You’ll have a solid knowledge of techniques used to drive changes in behaviour.

We’ll frequently use social media to reach our target audiences so social media experience will also be very useful.

You will need to be results focused, able to deliver under pressure and maintain focus on the big picture.

What we offer

We offer a dedicated and supportive team, flexible work options and the opportunity to apply your skills and experience to improve and enhance the wellbeing of some of NZ's most disadvantaged children and young people.

If you want to be part of changing the way New Zealand supports our most vulnerable please apply now.

TVC OF THE WEEK

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.
