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.
Ben, your inspiration is worthy of the leadership position you have already been recognised for. As an [old-ish] person I wholeheartedly endorse your ambition and add this observation: - Kiwis are often too fearful of 'what-others-think-of-me' - Tall Poppy syndrome ...
The saddest thing about this post, is a reminder of how sh$t this industry is. A brand puts out an RFI to the industry, which you would guess anyone non-conflicted would have responded to? A local agency (yep, owned by ...

It's not uncommon for Kiwibank to use organisations outside of New Zealand. I understand they were using a South African organisation on their failed SAP project. Seems odd for a purpose driven organisation to not "live their brand".

Why we like it: This campaign is jarring. The woman in this spot is no actor, her name is Ashleigh and she lost her cousin to drug driving. Every (wo)man and their dog know the dangers of drunk driving in New Zealand, but driving while under the influence of drugs is often overlooked. The campaign is linked to Facebook and Instagram pages where people can share their own experiences on the issue – in a bid to make sure no more people die from drug driving in New Zealand.
Who's it for: Air New Zealand
Why we like it: Air New Zealand is doing what Air New Zealand does, teasing us with something important relating to itself and the All Blacks, launching on 1 August. One cheerful YouTube commenter suggested this series is preempting the release of a new safety video. Please, dear god no. Not another All Blacks safety video. We already had to endure the Men In Black tribute piece that was confusing on many many levels, not least because at the time it was released, the most recent Men In Black film release was three years previous. Also, as someone who has never seen a single film in the franchise, the talking dog was a confusing addition to an airline safety video. And do we dare mention the curse of that video, that its star rapper Israel Dagg wasn't even called up to the world cup team... it's all just too much to process on a Tuesday.
