Location: Cape Town
Job level: Mid/Senior
Type: Permanent
Reference: #Tam497
Company: VGP Recruitment

We have an exciting job opportunity for a mid-senior PR, Partnerships and Influencer Manager to work on a leading innovative, designer hearing protection device brand whose head office is in Antwerp. The successful candidate must have worked on a global brand with influencers globally (mainly US, EU and a smaller percentage in the Asia Pacific region) as this role requires you to identify relevant influencers and brand partners. Another “must have” is experience with a ‘cool and trendy’, B2C global brand, ideally sold online.
You will be responsible for compiling a strategy and managing a large PR/Marketing Budget. In this hands-on role, great writing skills are a must as you will be responsible for drafting press releases, articles and pitches to relevant media. You will also be responsible for earned media. We’re looking for a creative, out of the box, strategic thinking individual.
The company is creating a hub in Cape Town, so we’re calling for candidates who can work remotely, preferably in Cape Town.  
  • Spearhead all relationship-based growth marketing channels including affiliate, partnerships, influencers, YouTube, podcast, and more
  • Lead global PR outreach
  • Your focus will be direct-response first, and brand-building second
  • Source and vet new opportunities, lock them in, scale them, and manage the ongoing relationships
  • Innovate to drive cross functional initiatives that improve DTC experience (e.g., holiday, partnerships, in box opportunities).

The successful candidate must have/be:
  • Industry relevant qualification
  • 5+ years of experience in relevant channels using influencers and partnerships to drive sales
  • Familiarity with performance tracking, measurement, attribution
  • Proven marketer who understands and has worked across the full DTC marketing funnel
  • DTC experience preferable, but not essential
  • Able to read/interpret data and report on ROI
  • Strong, able to self-manage, excellent negotiating skills
  • Highly analytical, structured thinker who is able to glean clear, salient ideas from complex information and very clearly communicate them to a diverse set of stakeholders in a way they will understand
  • Writing skills – a must
  • Detail-oriented and organised thinker. Someone who is excited by helping develop structure around something new
  • A highly organised “doer” with an exceptional ability to multitask, who will take initiative and execute
  • ‘No task too small’ mentality, willing to roll up sleeves and get things done
  • General awesomeness and a sense of humour.

Should you not receive a response within one week, please consider your application unsuccessful.
