Communications and PR Specialist | client-side

  • Auckland

Your chance to join an iconic international brand!

We are looking to fill a permanent role, however, if you are available for a short-term contract (and can start immediately) we would be interested to see your CV too.

This role is based in-house, client-side, working on one well-known and fun international brand.

This role is a cross between PR/comms and content. You may have come from an in-house comms role, from a PR agency, or possibly from a marketing role where you have had substantial media involvement.

It is essential that you have existing New Zealand media connections. Therefore, only candidates with a significant amount of relevant New Zealand experience will be considered for this role. You'll need to have built relationships with journalists, producers, and media owners, and be comfortable pitching stories and finding new and interesting content angles.

You'll have at least 3-5 years' of experience.

You'll be responsible for the positioning and delivery of this brand's communication across all types of media channels (social, web, TV, radio, and print), and you'll be working a lot within the sports and culture sector.

You will lead the activation plans for brand and product initiatives, and take full responsibility for all earned media activation (e.g. through influencer marketing and media relationship-building).

There will be some, more traditional, PR activities involved (crisis management, consumer affairs, product communication - B2B and B2C).

This company is located on the Auckland CBD fringe. You'll get a competitive salary plus the opportunity to earn extra from a bonus scheme and additional perks.

If you think this sounds like you, please click Apply via Email quoting reference #5890SP.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Preference will be given to applicants entitled to work in (and currently residing in) NZ.

 Who’s it for: Les Mills by Motion Sickness and Alt Group

Why we like it: Getting to the gym in January after a relaxing summer is probably tougher than any other time of the year. But this ad from Les Mills, introducing its ‘Live Forward’ concept, might be the antidote. Featuring shots of peppy Les Mills instructors and members in a variety of classes and activities, instead of turning to chocolate (see below) you could see it as the motivation and encouragement you’ve been waiting for. 

Who’s it for: Whittaker’s by Brewery Studio

Why we like it: For lovers of chocolate and pottery, this is an edible match made in heaven. Waiheke-based ceramicist Thea Ceramics ‘throws’ chocolate on the pottery wheel to create a vase able to hold flowers. While the longevity and function of such a vase can be called into question, it is undeniably a cute and enjoyable spot.

Who’s it for: NZTA by Clemenger BBDO

Why we like it: It is seen as a rite of passage for young Kiwi drivers to have a car that looks as if it might not pass its WOF, but this ad is working to encourage parents to purchase safer cars for their offspring to reduce fatalities. The undercover experts chat to the families with a good mix of humour and seriousness about the consequences of what happens in a car crash if your vehicle doesn't have the correct safety rating or airbags. We hope to see the safety message get through.
