Trading Manager - Media Agency #5199

  • Auckland Central

Negotiation in your DNA? This Senior Media Trading Role at a major Auckland Media Agency has you written all over it…

You enjoy fighting the good fight on behalf of your agency clients and whilst television may have been your core trading involvement, you are able to operate across all off-line media.
A specialist trading knowledge will allow you to take advantage of market movements and opportunities on behalf of your clients and given the dynamic nature of media consumption, ensuring delivery against the plan is second nature to you. You enjoy the cut and thrust of media negotiation and are across all the trading tools required to operate in your role.

You will already be at a senior trading level in an agency or media owner, or if you are an up-and-comer with ambition, this role could enhance your CV.

This modern city-fringe Auckland media agency takes pride in delivering the very best in trading efficiencies across some of the largest and most demanding media clients in the country.

In this Senior Trading Manager role you will be responsible for one of the largest media accounts in NZ and ‘blue-chip’ at that. Although Digital trading is not part of the role, close liaison with the digital trading team will be important to ensure the most cost effective delivery across media owner assets.

We are looking for a senior talent, able to negotiate hard, yet foster positive relationships with media partners. This will be a client-facing role, so great presentation skills are essential. Experience on audited clients will be an advantage.

This is an exciting opportunity to work in a dynamic media agency environment. If this sounds like you, send your CV to quoting Ref. 5199. Give Barry or Ellana a call or simply click on the ‘Reply via Email’ tab.

Who's it for: ASB by With Collective

Why we like it: Slightly dry humour aside, ASB's tried something a little different with its new agency With Collective. Rachel House, from Hunt for the Wilderpeople, owns the role of True Rewarden and lends her comedic tone to a script that manages to educate the audience about True Rewards alongside the one-liners. It's too early to tell if the True Rewards character becomes as iconic as Goldstein but we hope she sticks around for a few more spots at least.

Who's it for: Hallenstein Brothers

Why we like it: Just in case you're invited to a black-tie event in Botswana, Hallenstein Brothers has your back. This spot is the latest in a video series that's taken suits where no other suits have been before, including the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and shark-infested waters, and in return stirred up jealousy among viewers who wish they could be a model for the clothing brand. And if the beautifully shot African wildlife is not enough, the song Kingdom Come makes for great listening and we're sure the band, Braves, will get a lot of attention from Hallenstein's shout out to them on Facebook.

Who's it for: Les Mills Fight Night by Media Design School students

Why we like it: The annual Les Mills Fight Night was last week and this year Media Design School students made no secret of the fact Cure Kids needs donations to fund its research. Adding impact to the already gripping images of fighters securing coins to their fists is the fact that the first one shown is a father to a sick child. His appearance exemplifies the fact that despite not being in the ring, parents are fighting for the kids every day. The final blow to the heartstrings is the inclusion of Eva, a young girl with a rare condition that's endangering her life.
