Fairfax heads to the Mother Country, aims to lure new recruits with hype video

Fairfax, like many 'traditional' news businesses around the world, has had a fairly rough time of it lately, with declining circulation and ad revenue, ongoing cost cutting and the ensuing job losses. But a new management team is in place in the New Zealand market, there appears to be a bit of renewed optimism in the media (check out Pew Research Centre's State of the Media 2014 for a great rundown of what's happening), its digital numbers are strong and some believe the negative sentiment towards print is overcooked, in Australia at least. Despite the issues of recent years, Fairfax is still a big business and a big employer in this country, and it's looking for a few new recruits, so its inhouse team has created a self-promotional video (how good is that voice?) aimed at selling those in the UK on the New Zealand lifestyle and the chance to work in the "innovative, integrated multi-media business".
