  • Proven ability to work with a multi-cultural, multi-country team

  • You have a strong preference for working-media over non-working media.
  • Strong business acumen and organisational awareness. This means, you know what is going on around you at all times. You see BS coming from a mile away.
  • Relevant experience with managing agency relationships because we will not hire a dedicated team to do that for you. Sorry.

  • Track record of deploying EFFECTIVE communication assets across all media channels. We want to touch the hearts and minds of our consumers, and we want them to buy our products. That is where you come in. You will be our consumer advocate and marketing rock star!
