Job description
We are looking for a driven, tough and compassionate person who loves and/or is experienced in building teams to lead a fast-paced forever learning and growing creative team, executing across content and business projects for a company with a bold purpose and the ability to achieve it. 
You have an instinct for enlisting the right people for the right job and/or project. You are a teambuilder (leader or budding leader). A project manager (experienced). You are ideally an editor (mid-senior). The managing editor is the protector and driver of our core values. 
This role fits an individual who can balance a take-no-shit attitude with nurturing talent. It’s for someone who has stamina to create change and see it through.
You are as dogged about the quality, delivery and deadlines, as you are about compassion for people and morale. 
Colleagues love that you know how to drive them to their best and reward them for it, whether in praise or special experiences (as is the CapeTownMag way). Because you understand the power of collaboration, and have seen enough in this crazy creative space to know that your passion is to build the next generation of digital superstars. 
You are sanguine when others are panicked, calm (actually at your best) in the face of a crisis or an “impossible deadline”, because you know just what, which freelancer to call. You are the one that others, young and senior look to in a sticky situation, because they trust you to be decisive, solutions focused and not freak out.
Our mission:
To create a DNA-changing impact (on locals and visitors + who we write about), and this destination through Moments of Joy. For happier people. A better place. Championing SMEs and its people. Creating a magnet the world can not wait to be a part of. 
Audiences love us because they know that in a world of increased anxiety and negative news CapeTownMagazine.com brings daily Moments of Joy. Brands collaborate with us because we are a constructive, joyous environment, with engaged audiences in the mood to discover, in the channels that they live in, love and can take action.
Your mission will be:
To build, galvanise and lead today’s young generation of content creating superstars while collaborating cleverly with our networks of unique experiences and Instagrammers. 
You will be managing and coaching an internal (and externally) team of creatives (writers, video creators, designers) in fulfilling our mission to our audience of millions, locally and across the world. 
You will do this by growing them in, applying and instilling our wisdoms and proven content methodologies in their work daily, and by improving the systems we have and bringing in your own tools, and ideas on how we can improve to be more efficient. 
You’ll be who we look to set up and run creative brainstorming, sprints etc.
You have writing and editing chops. You have extensive experience creating content to provide helpful edits and advice to team members. Impressive attention to detail to catch any grammatical, spelling or style guide errors across all channels.
You must be great at communicating, since you’ll be the bridge for internal and external collaborations regularly. You will need to develop and present and oversee content strategy goals and campaigns. You’ll be assigning projects and ensuring the editing team meets its deadlines.
