About the Role
Are you a marketing professional with a strategic mind, a deep understanding of digital and social media, and a passion for positive change? Are you skilled at storytelling, conveying details, and persuading others to take action? If so, we want to hear from you!
We are looking for a dynamic and proactive Marketing Manager for an immediate start. This is a key position at Nanogirl Labs which contributes to nearly all projects and streams of work across the business.
This role covers a range of responsibilities across marketing, brand development and customer engagement. It’ll suit someone with a strategic mind who can communicate brilliantly, has a deep understanding of digital and social media, an eye for design and a strong background in marketing. You’ll be people-centric, adapt well to the changes that come in a fast-paced business, take care of details, and share our passion for positive change.
The Marketing Manager role will be to help us as we develop our brands and products, creating marketing campaigns to tell our stories and create lasting relationships of value for our customers and stakeholders. You’ll help us leverage PR opportunities, create compelling digital and social media content, and find new creative ways for Nanogirl Labs to engage with the community.
This role is 0.8 FTE (approx 32 hrs per week), and—if it’s the right move for both parties—there is the potential for additional hours as the company grows and new projects arise.
As well as sharing our values, we want someone who can:
Communicate brilliantly. Whether in person, on the phone, through imagery or in writing, you communicate professionally and with heart. You are a gifted storyteller with an intuitive sense of what matters to your audience. You can move people to act. You can clearly convey details, persuade, build support, set expectations. You also care about people, and they feel that as you communicate with them.
Build on and maintain our digital presence. Digital marketing is a significant aspect of our connection with the public, and a deep, experienced understanding of that world will be critical. Social media is a key aspect of the role, and you’ll be able to demonstrate experience in growing audiences and revenue through social channels.
Bring a creative eye for design and proven skills in marketing to our projects. We think you’ll possibly have previous experience with creating and executing marketing strategies/campaigns that capture the hearts of parents and families.
Adapt and take on various support tasks when needed. You’ll need to be a quick learner and enjoy the idea of a challenge; some projects come through very quickly and can be resource intensive (meaning all hands on deck)! Adaptability is a valuable attribute.
Key Competencies for the Role
These are things that we think you’ll need to be successful in this role:
Kind, and fit in well with our operating style and values.
Driven, with a love for making things happen.
Looking to take on a significant challenge in an organisation squarely in growth mode.
Super organised, with a systematic approach to work.
Calm under pressure.
Skilled on the computer—adept with word processing and advanced spreadsheets, comfortable working in cloud apps like Google Drive, and skilled with using design software in the Adobe suite.
Contribute to our team and model our values:
We are a high performing team, with great relationships built on teamwork, trust and accountability. We look out for one another, and help one another to succeed. You’ll bring your values and purpose and bring your best self to your work. You’ll:
Engage with others in the team, building positive, cohesive relationships
Embrace and model Nanogirl Labs’ values.
Be inclusive of all team members—demonstrate that you value their strengths and contribution to the team, and expect the same in kind.
Help out. In our small but mighty team, we all pitch in and support each other to get the job done.
