The Marketing Account Manager is the bridge between Big Ambitions and its customer, Wetu. They are the point of contact for Big Ambitions and the individual who helps to define and implement the customer’s marketing, PR and communications strategy and tactics. The Marketing Account Manager is required to be well versed in marketing and has a good understanding of analytics, interpreting them and using this to define the marketing mix for Wetu. They should be resourceful, have a can-do, creative approach to problem solving and be able to think critically, multi-task and project manage. They proactively suggest ways to streamline and improve campaigns, tactics and output to achieve Wetu’s marketing objectives and fundamentally their business goals.
This is a fast-paced, fast-changing environment which requires you to have an agile mindset, be flexible, resourceful and have an innovative, independent approach to problem solving. You are a Doer – someone who does not wait to be asked. Rather, you look for gaps and opportunities and seek to fill them efficiently and quickly. You are honest, respectful and lead with empathy in your communications. Your strategic and organisational skills are top-notch, you’re able to follow through without being followed up on and show creativity in the face of challenges.
This role is not for you if you wait to be told what to do, are looking for a 9 to 5 job where you can check-out, outside of ‘normal’ working hours and want strong corporate structures and culture. Both companies have an entrepreneurial and growth mindset, and you will be required to fly the plane and fix it midair, so if you need a great deal of guidance to get going and lots of support and encouragement, this is not the right role for you.
