Walker Phillip is a privately-owned recruitment firm based in Cape Town. We conduct discreet search assignments for Asset Management and Private Equity firms operating across Africa and the Middle East.
We are motivated to be the recruitment partner of choice to our clients by demonstrating honesty and integrity in the way we conduct business. Our point of differentiation is building relationships with outstanding candidates that our clients and competitors cannot access themselves.
The Marketing Assistant role is an entry level role, but critical to the functioning of the business.
Reporting to the Founder, you will have four areas of responsibility:
- Business administration
- Market Research
- Digital Marketing – strategy and implementation
- Candidate and Client support
On the marketing side, you will be responsible for marketing strategy, general brand promotion of Walker Phillip, editing and compiling job videos, and full responsibility for the website and social media. This includes developing and executing a digital media strategy. Approx 50% of your time.
In business support, you will be responsible for the overall functioning of the business by implementing and improving business flows, processes, scheduling meetings, and general ad hoc business support to the Founder. This will take 30% of your time.
In Research, you will perform extensive primary and secondary research to build a detailed understanding of the investment markets in South Africa. This includes identifying potential new clients, new markets, and a demand for value-add services. This will take 20% of your time.
This is an excellent role for someone who is looking for a foot-in-the-door, and interested in being part of a small entrepreneurial company where you will be exposed to everything. You must have a proactive attitude, can demonstrate grit on the tough days, and have conviction in in your decision making.
