Communications/Marketing Assistant

Location: New Zealand

 

Doubledot Media is a New Zealand-based company creating online tools and training for people looking to start their own online businesses. We’re based in Christchurch, but the majority of our team work remotely from various places around the world.

We’re looking for a top-notch communications/marketing assistant who’s exceptionally organised, has an eye for detail, and the common sense to “read between the lines” and anticipate what needs to be done before it needs to be done.

You’ll be working directly under our CEO. He’s super friendly (he didn’t make me write this!), but he’s also super busy running a large, global company with several core products.

We’re looking for a clear-thinking problem solver with a can-do attitude who’s willing to go above and beyond for our customers.

Day-to-day responsibilities include

  • Daily monitoring of key services and metrics, reporting issues to the appropriate staff.
  • Proofing and editing content, both offline and online using our content management systems.
  • Updating and maintaining internal wiki documents.
  • Compiling a monthly staff newsletter.
  • Assisting other staff with correspondence, data entry and some online marketing tasks.
  • Contributing to general operating efficiency across the company.

You'll need

  • Excellent written English and a friendly manner in writing.
  • Common sense and the ability to "read between the lines" to understand what our CEO is thinking.
  • Meticulous attention to detail. Your spelling and grammar should be top notch.
  • Excellent time management skills. 
  • The ability to learn new software and systems. You'll be working with our custom content management system, so it's good if you're a quick learner and not fazed by learning new tools.
  • Experience with Slack, Slite, GitLab, Trello are ideal. 
  • Basic bookkeeping and accounting skills will also be regarded favorably.

Neat things about working with us

  • Flexible hours
  • Relaxed, ego-free, family-friendly work culture
  • Novelty coffee mugs
  • An extremely comfortable chair
  • Tap dancing seagulls

The role is fixed contract (hours are flexible) but would consider ongoing for the right person.
