They are the best at what they do and they are internationally acclaimed… And the job is the dream job… If I was not an entrepreneur (self employed) , I would quit my day job to do this… Read on and send your resumes to the email address at the bottom.
Sandstorm Kenya are looking for an online marketing ‘do-er’
Sandstorm Kenya are the most exciting Kenyan brand you’ve (probably) never heard of: actors (like Robert Pattinson), politicians (like Bill Clinton), sportsmen (like Jack Nicklaus) and royalty (who we can’t name) all love our stuff.
We make beautiful bags and accessories just outside Nairobi, to the same exacting specification as the luxury safari tents that first made our name: each one crafted carefully, individually and ethically from the finest materials. This year we were selected by the BAFTAs (Britain’s Oscars) to be the bag given to all of the award nominees.
Originally known only to people in Kenya who visited our shops in Nairobi and at the Coast, our popularity is now growing internationally amongst a discerning audience who prefer Sandstorm’s natural look and feel.
As an international Kenyan luxury brand we already sell online in the UK, Europe and the United States and we’ll start selling in Kenya soon. We like to think that we’re good at what we do, but we’re also humble enough to recognise when we could and should be doing things much better, and online marketing is one of those things.
We therefore seek a highly motivated individual with experience and expertise in online marketing. An ‘Online Marketing Manager’ would be a more conventional title, but we want someone who can do more than just manage, we want someone with passion who will make things happen, who will get things done… we want a Do-er.
Working with the Managing Director and supported by the Online Customer Services Manager, you will play a central role in the development and implementation of online marketing strategies in Kenya and internationally.
You should have a bachelor’s degree in business administration, advertising, marketing, communication, journalism, sociology, IT, Mass Communication or Public Relations.
The ideal candidates must have a digital footprint and must also demonstrate some critical competencies in online marketing as highlighted below.
