Home is where the Speight's is

It's that time of year again: Sausages are consumed voraciously, jandal-adorned feet almost instantly become sunburned, refreshing beverages are sought and summer advertising campaigns are released. And, following on from the man-heavy launch spot for the new Ranfurly Frontier lager a few weeks back, Lion Nathan and Publicis Mojo have also entered the masculine mainstream beer fray with a new number for Speight's, which documents a rather urban Southern Man's domestic journey to dish out a few cold Gold Medal Ales to the boys.

The 'It's good to be Home' spot (check out the steely, determined gaze and magical fire-making fingers of the lead-man) is part of the 'Pride of Your Castle' campaign, which kicked off with the TVC and continues on-pack, offering Kiwi men the opportunity to win that most sought after of prizes, a pimped out personalised BBQ along with other meat-charring accoutrements.

Kiwi entrepreneur looks to shake up the recruitment market with video CVs

Earlier this month, a young Auckland professional made headlines for using Facebook to try and land his dream job. Edward McKnight used ads on the social media site to target ASB staff as a way of applying for the role of youth and innovation sponsorship manager at the bank. And while McKnight has yet to be offered a job at ASB, it’s a sign that the traditional recruitment process of sending in a CV and crossing your fingers may be in for a shake-up. Hoping to do just that is the new recruitment platform PreviewMe. Set to have its beta version go live early next month, the website hopes to reduce the pain points of both candidates and employers by introducing video to the recruitment process.
