Who you are:

  • A builder with leadership skills, ability and appetite to bring people together.
  • Open and collaborative: our team is close-knit and supportive and  working with a lot of unknowns. 
  • An experimenter: We are doing something new and you must be ridiculously comfortable with ambiguity. You'll be excited by opportunities to create new rather than default to plugging-in to existing ones, while leaning towards experimentation.
  • Optimistic and resilient: dig in and figure out how to work around problems.
  • Ego-less: we all wear the hats that need wearing, it's a mentality that makes the team successful.
  • Okay with being wrong, and right: this isn't a role that you'll be able to take what you learned somewhere else and copy onto this role. We want someone willing to collaborate and think strategically in team building and best practices.

What you'll need:

  • 9+ years of experience in media and communication strategy.
  • Powerful communication skills both in your writing and your presenting; compelling, persuasive.
  • Track record of managing teams. The number is less important than how effective of a manager you were  bringing out the best in people.
  • Lover of data and analytics, not as a wrap-report but key insights.
