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!
You're shrinking but your grand plan is to leverage your scale. That's why the pay these boys the big bucks, it's a council of great minds.
Why do we need more tourists when most of our best spots are full up with a never ending horde of people - to be honest we need to cap the numbers coming in?
You are a legend Andrew. Go well mate.
Simon, Rogan and team did a tremendous job. I believe the publisher shareholders have made the wrong call. Happy to be proven wrong but expect this will result in more spend going to the duopoly.
Yep. Sold off Ogilvy and Kantar and closed down designworks Wellington.
The big sell off is underway.

Who’s it for: KiwiRail and TrackSafeNZ by DDB
Why we like it: Watching this spot definitely provoked a visceral reaction. And while watching the real-life footage is stressful, this ad implores people to think about the impacts of the near misses on the train drivers themselves. The half-crosses are also a clever nod to just how close these near misses could have been a fatality. Well done to DDB for making us remember the people for whom these situations stick with for a long time.
Who’s it for: Electric Kiwi, created in-house
Why we like it: We’ve all had those days – you get a flat tyre or forget your raincoat, or the cat runs away. However, a Kiwi attitude (and a free hour of power from Electric Kiwi) is there to get through those bad times with a smile on your face. We also love the cheeky, can-do nature of this ad as it's well-matched to Electric Kiwi's position as a challenger brand.
Who’s it for: Sealy of Australia by DDB
Why we like it: While this spot is for an Australian company, we enjoyed DDB’s deep-dive into mattress making for Sealy. With continuous camera movement, attention to detail and showcasing of technology, it illustrates what a surprisingly fascinating and innovating process making a mattress is.
