About Inside Guide

Inside Guide is a team of passionate Capetonians. As the leading destination marketing guide to the Cape, our mission is finding new, transformative experiences and packaging them in a way that drives our readers to take meaningful business actions. Storytelling with integrity and purpose is at the core of everything we do. We’re a tightly-knit team with a flat organisational structure that promotes independence, responsibility and growth – of the business, and of ourselves.

If you, too, are passionate about Cape Town (or travel in general!) and have a keen eye for aesthetics and design (read: if you think you have good taste ;)), you’ll fit right in.

Job description

The successful candidate will report directly to the Sales & Marketing Manager and assist in the execution of advertorial campaigns. Predominantly, the role involves industry research, data capturing, prospecting (via email and/ or telephone), fielding clients’ queries on the product offering, and feeding new projects into production.

Although this is an admin-intensive role, there’s a fair amount of creative problem-solving and client interaction involved. You’ll also work closely with the production and customer support teams to ensure the client’s brief is met and will be involved in weekly team meetings where everyone contributes to the mission for the week ahead. In these meetings you’ll be required, where relevant, to contribute any insights or trends you’ve gleaned from research and prospecting activities.

The successful candidate must have strong organisational skills and be detail-oriented. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are critical for the position, as well as the ability to convey basic technical information clearly and concisely. Thus, knowledge of the digital marketing space is preferential.
