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.
A very good point. The forming of KPEX whilst not at the same revenue level as TV was groundbreaking. The closing of KPEX is commercial suicide and has handed yet more money to the behemoths.
It'd be interesting to see if TVNZ's $17m loss wasn't written off.
TVNZ isnt the main issue. TV3's real competition is Google & Facebook who are hoovering up all the media spend and having the added advantage of having a tax free existence.
Or a case of the competition having a blank cheque with tax payers money
Clown's looking for something client-side
It could be suggested that this is better written comedy than anything on TV3, but it's actually just a tragic tale about leadership incompetence.
Honouring the ads—and the agencies responsible for them—that make the biggest impact on consumers and get more bang for the client’s buck.

Who’s it for: Breast Cancer Foundation by oOh!media
Why we like it: Bringing technology down to street level and allowing commuters to donate three dollars with the tap of their card or Apple Pay is a clever and innovative idea. And anything that supports the Breast Cancer Foundation is awesome to us.
Who’s it for: Blind & Low Vision New Zealand by YoungShand
Why we like it: With a great mix of images and text this spot does exactly what it is trying to do – explain why Alt text will help those with people who can’t see images to experience it through a screen reader. Hopefully, all Kiwis’ get behind this campaign and participate in making the world more accessible.
Who’s it for: Carpet Court by in-house
Why we like it: Getting real rhinos to test out Carpet Court’s hard flooring and carpet was so 10 years ago (they actually did this). So getting the Stokes Valley Junior Rhinos rugby team was the next best option this time. Good fun and a great way to show off its product.
