The Field, Australia’s new disability-inclusive jobs platform, designed by and for people with disabilities, has launched.
A creative technology agency, whiteGREY led the launch of Field’s creative, strategy and content creation across TV, digital and social platforms.
The launch campaign begins with social assets. CTVs, outdoor assets and other digital assets will hit the market in early 2023. The campaign is the first to go to market since whiteGREY was named Field’s official creative agency earlier this year, following a highly contested argument.
Magdalina Triantafyllidis, Managing Director of whiteGREY Melbourne, said her team was honored to work and learn from a company that aims to change the lives of people with disabilities seeking employment; plus have the opportunity to work alongside Australian of the Year, Dylan Alcott AM, (who co-founded the company), a person with values, integrity and the pursuit of a more fair at its core.
Triantafyllidis said: “Sometimes in your career an agency goes to work for an organization with a purpose, that’s the work we do for the pitch. The collaborative nature of our client relationship is phenomenal.
“I can proudly say that whiteGREY has evolved as an organization and has become more aware of the challenges people with disabilities face when seeking employment.
“Diversity and inclusion has always been part of our agency’s DNA, but our commitment to being inclusive feels even more genuine now that we’re working with Dylan and his team. We’re proud to say that whiteGREY will be a customer of the “First on Field” foundation for the field and we are looking forward to welcoming our first team member found through the platform.
Joe Hill, executive creative director of whiteGREY in Melbourne, added: “The creative process has been unique. It has been strongly consultative, with inclusivity at its core.
“The Field has a great philosophy of calling and not calling people. People with lived experiences have been key decision makers and valuable consultants throughout the process and much of our creative ideas have been generated directly at from the experiences shared with us.
“We look forward to seeing the work hit the market over the next few months,” Hill concluded.
The Field’s co-founder, Martin Alcott, said: “The passion, energy, diversity and respect for whiteGREY was evident during the pitch process and that’s exactly what drew us to the team. . We look forward to seeing the campaign hit the market and achieving our goal of ensuring the pitch has a positive impact on the Australian jobs market.
“Thank you to Field’s associates and consultants who shared their time and experiences and kindly nudged us, with a special mention to Scott Harris, who heavily inspired one of the scripts directly through his lived experience” , concluded Alcott.
