Adelaide marketing jobs like this do not come up often. 

We’re looking for a marketer who gives a shit. About their professional development and learning. About doing a great job for their clients. About their colleagues and team members.

Reporting to our Digital Marketing Manager, Rubina Carlson, you will work as part of our delivery team, covering social, advertising, marketing automation and more.

This is a perfect opportunity for an ambitious marketing graduate who has gained some experience, but really wants to kick their career up a gear.

The Marketing Assistant role is a flexible position. It can be full time or part time, 3-5 days per week depending on the successful candidate. This is an in person role at our office in Port Adelaide, South Australia with flexible work arrangements available.

You'll need to have:

  • At least 1 year experience in marketing and/or a similar position.

To succeed in this role, you will need:

  • Adaptability to different programs and processes
  • The ability to prioritise multiple tasks and deadlines
  • Great team spirit
  • To be detail orientated and diligent
  • A well developed sense of humour

Your Digital Marketing Assistant experience

We know it’s hard when you’re a recent grad to have the experience you need for a role like this. But that’s exactly why we want someone with at least a year’s experience. We want those marketers, those graduates, who have done something to develop themselves and gain relevant industry experience.

Andrea has previously written a blog on how to gain industry experience while you study. If you’re a recent grad with no experience, read it now!

We want those candidates who pushed themselves to gain experience. To stand out from the other grads. Those who built websites, developed social profiles, volunteered with not-for-profits, wrote blogs, sought out internships, or did something else to put credible experience on their CV.

You can also look to obtain free digital marketing certifications, which we also look on positively.

But to get an interview for this role, it won’t be enough to send a resume showing you graduated from uni. You’ll need to demonstrate experience, and show that you’ve read this ad. I’ve previously put together some tips on applying for marketing agency jobs for just this occasion.
