Blavity is looking for an ambitious Corporate Marketing Manager, with a mix of pr, media, and community relations skills, to spearhead our expanding Corporate Brand in 2018.
None of your days will look the same. Monday may have you liaising with media, Tuesday you’ll be giving a presentation to a large multinational NGO, and Wednesday you will be on stage talking to a group of marketers about Blavity’s approach to building community through original content. You’ll have tremendous flexibility in designing your days, but with that, the responsibility to represent one of the fastest growing media companies, on a mission to make bigger spaces and more rooms for Black millennials.
