We believe that the most important career decision people can make is the culture they choose to grow in. At PHD we’re like a big family. One that nurtures talent, harnesses potential and encourages growth. Why is culture so important to us? Because we believe that the agency with the strongest culture delivers the most innovative media product. And that’s what our clients want from us. It’s our passion and nous for the work that we do that saw us named Comms Council Media Agency of the Year 2018.
We are looking for our next Media Executive to join the PHD family.
This would ideally suit someone who has already been in the industry for 6 - 18 months, as you will be hitting the ground running. Working across some great brands, in a really strong (and fun) team, we are looking for someone who has excellent attention to detail, works well as part of a team, takes initiative and has a great attitude. It would be great if you had TV/offline buying and client service experience. In fact, experience in TV buying would be a REAL plus...
The day-to-day will also entail some financial reporting, so an eye for numbers and a passion for spreadsheets won't go astray.
If this sounds like you, we encourage you to apply!
Long time since a telco, especially given their awful customer service, have made me feel something. I didn't want to like it, but sometimes the heart overcomes the head...
Damon and team - thanks for making me cry - bastards!!
Best ad overall in years. Better than Lotto in my view. Well done all.
This is how emotional advertising should be done. Well done Vodafone. The best telco ad in years.
Apart from alluding the dog was put down it's rather one-dimensional compared to Lotto and Speights and Coloursteel even.
Exciting new world? You mean like how this same idea was done 15 years ago? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UBLjdtwxag

Who's it for: Clemenger BBDO and Warmer Kiwi Homes
Why we liked it: Wholesome. That one word could sum up this whole ad. This family scene is a perfect example of the banter that is experienced with a small child. Do you need this? No. Are you sure? Yes. Are you very sure? Yes. I've had about eight similar conversations with every child in my family. It's a witty way to show that spending less time trying to heat your family ultimately means more time spent with them enjoying the little things.
Who's it for: EightyOne and Powershop
Why we liked it: This ad is a clever play on an electrical attraction that made me moderately uncomfortable. Called ‘A power company you can love’, the campaign features the young woman talking about her relationship with the big pink blob. They met online, have been together for three years, and while it’s not your typical relationship, it works for them.
Love can come in many shapes and sizes, sometimes that shape can be an 8 foot, neon pink glowing blob. Love is love.
Who's it for: Vodafone
Why we liked it: Vodafone did not need to play us like that. It was an unnecessary emotional rollercoaster that ripped out my heart just to tell me 5G is here. This message could have been portrayed without the manipulation, tears, and straight depression that comes from being forced to think a dog is dying. Yes, cinematically impressive and gripping, cruel all the same. For those equally upset, check out this handy site to see if a movie or ad you're about to watch has a dog that dies.
