The Spinoff seeks account manager to join commercial team

A newly established position within our vitally important commercial partnerships team.

We’re seeking an account manager to join The Spinoff’s small commercial team. Our ideal applicant would be someone who’s been in an advertising or marketing role for a year or two, and knows their way around those worlds. This is a junior role which would incorporate a broad range of administrative and sales duties, so you’d need to be as comfortable diving into a spreadsheet as pitching campaigns to clients. 

You don’t need to be an ad tech specialist, an analytics whiz or a client service phenom to be the right person for this role, but in time we’d like to help you build as broad a skillset as possible. Our commercial team’s core work is creating editorial concepts as a result of campaign briefs, so it’d be a big advantage if you’re already aware of (and on board with) The Spinoff’s approach. 

Key skills for this role are:

  • Rock-solid time management, and the work ethic to match – we’ll expect you to work under your own steam at times, and this is definitely the kind of job where no two days look alike.
  • Attention to detail, strong admin and communication skills – you’ll be assembling proactive and post-campaign reports for existing clients and helping to formulate pitches and responses for new business. 
  • A high level of tech literacy – you don’t need to know all of our platforms from the jump, but you’ll eventually be loading ad creative, managing site advertising inventory and pulling analytics from various channels.

Note: This is not a journalism role. 

If this sounds like you, please send your CV and a cover letter to jobs@thespinoff.co.nz (subject: Account Manager) by 5pm on Friday, June 5th.
