    Advertising Industry Careers partners with Mediaweek to launch jobs page

    Advertising Industry Careers (AIC), the recently launched careers hub for the advertising, media, and creative industries, has partnered with Mediaweek to power a new jobs page to bolster awareness of its site. 

    The Mediaweek Jobs page is the first of several initiatives by AIC as part of its mission to “help candidates connect, learn and apply for career opportunities inside our great industry,” Owen Joyce, chief operating officer at AIC said.  

    The page will draw from AIC’s career hub, which aims to serve as the go-to destination for careers, training, and job information across the advertising, media, and creative industries to help people make informed decisions about their next career move.  

    Joyce said, “We know that candidates research for months when they’re considering where to work, so it makes sense to make this information easy to find. We want to provide an industry career experience where quality candidates will come to find roles and that will help to increase the flow of amazing talent into their businesses in the future.

    “We’re hoping a byproduct is a reduction in time to hire, turnover and recruitment costs. We have already started conversations with Uni’s and training providers, and in time, we’ll work with high schools to increase awareness of the industry.” 

    Joyce told Mediaweek that despite the economic uncertainty, the industry was still flush with opportunities. 

    “Some businesses have 40 or 50 roles on the go, some have one or two. We know that, like any market, it’s cyclical, which is why we strongly believe in an always-on employer brand presence; you don’t need to be invisible to candidates just because you’re not hiring today. We’re seeing strong demand for salespeople and people with programmatic skills,” said Joyce. 

    The AIC launched last month with a number of major media and advertising companies on board, including Dentsu, Nine, iProspect, SCA and UM, among a host of others. 

    “We’ve had a great first few weeks. We’ve had a number of great brands sign up since launch, including JustEggs, Affinity, Commercial Radio and Audio, Magnite, NP Digital and Cartology. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback, but of course, the more employers, the merrier.”  

    “We hope these initiatives demonstrate our commitment to making a positive difference and will encourage more brands to see that our hearts are in the right place and come on board with us.”
