Creative Strategy & Business Development opportunity at this leading Auckland Media Group…
You live for the next creative/media brief to showcase your strategic thinking.
You enjoy creating and fostering strong client relationships based on mutual respect and the drive to achieve respective business outcomes.
Your point of difference is your creative mind combined with an ability to strategise to a communications brief and develop bespoke campaign concepts to sell into agencies and direct clients… an agency that isn’t an agency… perfect!
This is a rare opportunity to be the ‘ideas’ person to drive this important and growing aspect of the media company’s business and to increase revenue into new and exciting areas.
The role is that of Strategist… combining ideation with strategy development to major communications briefs. This is the chance to be a key component at this award-winning business development unit within the major Auckland-based publishing company. The unit is tasked with the creation of business solutions that extend beyond the immediate environment of owned media channels, in order to provide customised communications solutions that answer business objectives.
Call it an in-house mini advertising agency; it operates in a similar fashion, developing creative ideas around their media assets on behalf of agency and direct client partners. The thinking goes beyond traditional media solutions into integrated content generation inside and outside of the media channels themselves… including events, sponsorships and other communications opportunities.
Centrally situated in the Auckland CBD, this media market leader is driving integrated solutions across its publishing and digital assets… this is a great opportunity for someone to lead innovation and work with a small team of content integration, implementation and insights people.
3rdeye specialises in media recruitment with current roles across the media agency and media owner landscape.

Classic Roy. Really nice.
Great insight. But long, boring, occasionally funny, agency-self-indulgent execution.
Couldn't happen to a nicer agency.
Disagree. But you could say that about True too. True who?
A great hype machine for sure.
Thanks for your comment, Colenso employee. The DB Export ad is decent, you're right. It's also the only decent thing Colenso has done in a looooooong time.

Who's it for: Bank of New Zealand by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: Despite the fact part of us feels like the occasional outrageous ice cream would equal a healthier savings account than the longtime money drain that is a dog, this ad is quite charming. Brands are waking up to the reality that dads do actually parent their children and it is always lovely to see on screen. With a sweet acoustic song, a cute little girl and a montage of wholesome activities, this has all the hallmarks of a bank ad, but it is a nice one.
Who's it for: Trade Me by VMLY&R
Why we like it: The road to hell may be paved with good intentions – but what else would we fill a garage with? You've got to store your junk somewhere and the beauty of hoarding useless items is that between the guilt over buying into materialism, there are generally moments of glorious delusion that you really will use that Ab King Pro – or treadmill – one day. Trade Me is positioning itself as the solution here and in terms of an enjoyable watch it works, but we're still not quite ready to part with our vintage roller skates just yet.
Who's it for: ASB Bank by True
Why we like it: A song, a dance, a poem, diversity – it's all good stuff! ASB utilises some genuine Kiwi talent in this spot and focuses on its inclusiveness towards all New Zealanders. It's a simple concept, but it is executed well and that makes it a delight to watch. To some, it may seem a bit on the nose but we'll never complain about celebrating diversity.
Who's it for: DB Export by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: This is a Valentine's Day ad like you've never seen before – and given the number of scenes that qualify as oversharing, you may never want to see again. Regardless, it's tongue-in-cheek and plays into DB Export's target audience's (presumed, although it is 2019) deepest desire: a relationship built on a shared love of beer. The song, 'I'm Drinking of You' is catchy, and, at times, genuinely funny so this bold move definitely gets a tick for being memorable.
