Job description

Small writing and media house seeking dynamic, creative and savvy support member to play a leading role in the ‘days of our lives’. Must love cappuccinos, and working with crafty writers, flamboyant designers, demanding clients and pressure-player media houses.

Must not be afraid of the phone. Must take comfort in Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Word - and should enjoy indulging in juicy accounts. A deep-seated passion for brand marketing is essential, with big dreams too about relocating the company to a tropical island, where Oprah invites us to sit on her chair and M&M’s are perpetually free. Strong communication skills and admin prowess will keep us all happy. A penchant for campaign copywriting will get you noticed. Digital content experience and working with radio media is a bonus.

The successful incumbent is a junior or middle weight individual that is driven and still eager to learn. Will work closely with the MD to be groomed for senior positioning in the company. Growth potential here is a real thing. Just saying. If you are positive about affecting change in the world through communication and skilled marketing, then please apply. And if you know Oprah personally - then we’ll see you tomorrow. This position is open to committed individuals with at least two years working experience, who are willing to learn, to embrace opportunity and challenges; an individual that is serious about their career and sees their support function as an integral part of business growth; a pioneering assistant that wants to lead through solutions, strut their talent and grow their creative career in all forms of marketing. Flexi-time is a culture, and there will be perks on the table too. Experienced marketing assistants, agency runaways, change-of-life seekers, transitional aspirants, closet writers and marketers, all welcome.
