Job description

Does the following describe you? Or who you’d be if you just got half a chance to have a crack it?

You are fascinated with what makes people’s businesses and their customers tick.

Your dream job is one that involves:
  • Learning a client’s goals
  • Taking a budget and having carte blanche to apply your research and digital knowledge to come up with a strategy that meets those goals
  • Watching the results unfold each day in Analytics
  • Making the client just as excited as you about their investment
You are obsessed with results, and experience the success or failure of a campaign as your own.

You are a fast-paced, self-motivated individual with an insatiable thirst for new knowledge, and a drive to be the best damn digital marketer in the field.

You are comfortable with actively finding the best and most current solutions yourself, with minimal hand-holding. In fact, you crave autonomy and to take full ownership of your work.

You understand that while you make every effort to base your strategies on research and knowledge, this is a fast-moving industry and sometimes you just have to make leaps, and aren’t afraid to take apply your knowledge, take risks, execute, and refine the strategy as you go along.

On the flip side, you understand that collaboration is key to a good strategy, and nobody wants to work with a brilliant jerk, so people skills are a must, and you know when to ask the rest of the team for help.

Developing your own digital skills isn’t seen as work for you - it’s stimulating and fun, and you just can’t get enough of it. You’re also happy to dive in and get your hands dirty and help with execution if necessary.

You also have great powers of persuasion, because the most perfect strategy is no use at all if you can’t convince the client of its value.

You understand that each piece of work that goes out with your name on it is a reflection of yourself and the company, and you are dedicated to producing work that is in line with top international standards, and above all, in line with the client’s goals.

You might dream of speaking at conferences, and running your own business, or owning a share of this company and taking over as CEO some day. That’s not a joke, we’d love to have some future successors lined up.

If you’re reading this and thinking “Yes yes yes!” then we want to hear from you.
