MediaWorks is the home of powerhouse brands, among the likes of Mai FM, The Edge, The Rock, George FM, More FM, The Sound, Magic Radio and many more of New Zealand's leading radio brands. Through these brands we connect, influence, entertain and inform more Kiwis than any other media company.
We are currently on the hunt for a Senior Radio Planner to join our Planning Department here at MediaWorks. This is the perfect opportunity for an experienced Radio Strategist or Senior Media Planner to flex their skills in New Zealand's largest radio company and grow their career.
Working with the Head of Radio Sales, this position is all about complex levels of radio planning, new product evaluation, competitor analysis, the development and implementation of policy including yield analysis. In this role you will be a key part of the MediaWorks Radio Team, devising new products and assisting all parts of the MediaWorks radio business. You'll also get to utilise your strong analytical skills, to gain a deep understanding of available data, with which to create insightful bespoke media solutions for our vast portfolio of clients.
To really nail this role you'll need to be proficient in the use of GfK Probe, Nielsen products and other advertising and marketing research tools. You've already had at least 5 years' previous radio or media planning experience and you've got pretty exceptional research and mathematical abilities with the ability to read, decode and interpret information and data to make compelling explanations.
We're looking for someone who's overflowing with initiative, is self-motivated, results-driven, and can be counted on to exceed goals. You're not someone who is deterred by high expectations or a challenge. Whilst Mediaworks is a fun and exciting workplace, we also expect high standards of work, and we're a very fast paced environment, so being malleable and adaptable is a must.
If you have a strong Media, Marketing, Research, Analytical or Mathematical background we want to hear from you. Apply now and include a brief cover letter outlining why you'd be great for this role.
Here are a few things you need to know about us:
- At MediaWorks, we recognise that to be the most innovative company, we must also be the most diverse. We are committed to creating an environment where all employees are included, are treated with dignity and respect and are in a position to contribute to our future success.
- We operate an in house recruitment model and have formal partnerships with JobMedia & Emergent. We appreciate that you respect our partnerships and refrain from any form of candidate presentation or introduction.
- Due to the fast-paced nature of MediaWorks, our vacancy close dates may be subject to change, so don't muck around and make sure you apply as soon as possible.
The big sell off is underway.
Seems to be bit of a WPP fire sale at the moment.
Well done to you guys. You have all earned it. Welcome back to the world of salary ratios and bad global business at wonderful margins!
Congratulations MBM! Some of the smartest, hardest working and most humble people I know.
Congratulations to all involved - MBM have been a phenomenal local success story!
Awful, awful senior management, mostly two people with the same last names. It is hideous that this country has allowed this man to remain in business when he has done SO much damage to people. He should not be allowed ...

Who’s it for: ASB by True
Why we like it: Following up her successful ‘Stick’ start-up business, young Hana has hit another sweet spot with her orange smiles. No country loves rugby as much as New Zealand — even after the weekend's drama— so this is sure to be a winner. Why would turn down an orange at halftime? If only all our childhood ventures could end with the All Blacks turning up for a selfie.
Who’s it for: AMI by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: Even though we’d rather spend our hard-earned dollars on something else, it’s important to have insurance. And when/if terrible things happen, kindness is also very important too. Nice to see AMI celebrate a humane touch and understanding for what can be a frightening and confusing time for people.
Who’s it for: Sky by DDB New Zealand
Why we like it: It would be good to have a bit of help when arguing with our partners just to ensure the best shot is taken, and Sky does this with humour and style in this spot. Part of the ‘Life Needs More Sport’ campaign, all three ads released so far are entertaining sporty-spins on what can be mundane parts of life.
