The person we’re searching for

Ideally, our new teammate will be a tech-savvy, analytical problem solver who can work independently and proactively. A real “Do-er”, who loves staying up to date with all the most relevant marketing trends and technologies.

This is a senior role and we’re looking for someone who can help guide our clients into the next generation of digital agency services. A passionate customer-pleaser who is always looking out for way to add value to our clients’ businesses.

You’ll need to have a solid understanding of SEO, websites, content marketing, analytics and digital advertising to do well in this role.

She or he will be an organised person who can create, improve and follow business processes – whilst still being able to hack and hustle to get random stuff done quickly when required.

Extremely strong communication and interpersonal skills are a must. This role involves lots of client interaction, task management and collaboration with our team, so professionalism and great general business acumen is imperative.

We’re looking for somebody with leadership skills who wants to be a part of growing our business for the long term. Somebody who can take some responsibility for the growth and success of the agency and our clients’ businesses.

For the right person, there is even a potential to get “skin in the game” and become a partner in the business down the track.

 

The role & responsibilities

  • Managing assigned clients’ ongoing digital marketing projects and campaigns to ensure objectives are achieved and exceeded
  • Working with team members and subcontractors to ensure tasks are completed effectively and on time for clients
  • Preparing clear performance reports for clients using a mixture of internally developed and industry standard tools
  • Recommending new ideas, tactics and technologies to help improve results for our clients over time

 

Technical skills, tools & software

Ideally, you have experience using most or all of the following tools:

  • Google Analytics
  • Google AdWords
  • Facebook / Instagram ads
  • Google Search Console
  • Google Tag Manager
  • Google My Business
  • WordPress
  • Phone call tracking platforms
  • Email automation tools eg. Mailchimp, Autopilot, Hubspot etc
  • SEO tools like MOZ Analytics, semrush, Majestic, BuzzSumo etc
  • Cloud operational tools eg. Google Drive, Asana, Zapier, etc

 

Our Culture

Our company culture is fun and energetic, yet also laid-back and supportive. Whilst we take our client’s results very seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously! We reckon life is too short to be stressed out and we love being a little silly and irreverent sometimes… ok, maybe more often than just sometimes hehe 😛

Our clients help us put food on our tables and we pride ourselves on over-delivering for them. However, we also value our own happiness and sanity above any deadline or profit margin. You won’t be doing 15 hour days or pulling all-nighters here!

As part of our local team of 5, you’ll share our Newcastle CBD offices with one of Newcastle’s star International startups as well as one of the city’s longest-standing web development, design and hosting agencies. This puts you in an office environment with over 20 bright minds, with plenty of opportunity for cross-domain learning and professional growth.
