Maximise our brand impact: capture the target market

As our Manager Marketing & Communication, you will be responsible for creating differentiation. Our goal? Vividly conveying messages that align with key business strategies, raising customer loyalty and establishing emotional connections with our customers. To do so, you will be defining the strategic, operational and tactical marketing activities. This means leading the Marketing team and brainstorming and collaborating with teams for new ideas, launches and promotions.

The challenges you will be facing:

  • Coordinating and controlling budgets, deadlines, objectives and schedules.
  • Developing weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual media activity reports, in collaboration with our media agency.
  • Developing and updating content for social media, our websites, newsletters and press releases.
  • Creating presentations, articles (based on market research), events and communication for internal and external promotional use.
  • Managing the design, content and production of marketing materials and media and press opportunities.

You know consistency is the key to success: our ideal employee
You are well aware of what brand management includes: a brand is a desirable idea manifested in services, places, people and experience. We would like you to demonstrate strong communication and content creation skills, both independently and within your team. You are presentable and self-motivated, and pay high attention to details. In addition, you are able to multitask efficiently, handle high pressure, manage time effectively, and take initiative to create ideas outside the box.

The manager we are looking for:

  • holds (preferably) a bachelor’s or master’s degree in marketing.
  • has at least 5 years’ experience in marketing, communications or PR.
  • is familiar with technologies and best practices for campaigns across multiple platforms.

Tipical Questions
“Why are you leaving your current job?” Hiring managers want to know your motivation for wanting to leave your current job. Are you an opportunist just looking for more money or are you looking for a job that you hope will turn into a career? If you’re leaving because you don’t like your boss, don’t talk negatively about your boss–just say you have different work philosophies, Teach says. If the work was boring to you, just mention that you’re looking for a more challenging position. “Discuss the positives that came out of your most recent job and focus on why you think this new position is ideal for you and why you’ll be a great fit for their company.” If you’ve already left your previous job (or you were fired), Sutton Fell suggests the following: If you got fired: Do not trash your last boss or company. Tell them that you were unfortunately let go, that you understand their reasoning and you’ve recognized areas that you need to improve in, and then tell them how you will be a better employee because of it. If you got laid off: Again, do not trash your last boss or company. Tell them that you were let go, and that you understand the circumstances behind their decision; that you are committed to your future and not dwelling on the past; and that you are ready to apply everything that you learned in your last role to a new company. If you quit: Do not go into details about your unhappiness or dissatisfaction. Instead, tell them that while you valued the experience and education that you received, you felt that the time had come to seek out a new opportunity, to expand your skills and knowledge, and to find a company with which you could grow.
