9 MONTH CONTRACT, R HIGHLY NEGOTIABLE

Our client started in South Africa, in 1991. Back then, change was coming. Along with its challenges came the chance to invest in a better future. The company’s journey through that time taught them to recognise and embrace change and uncertainty. Change taught them to be bold. Resilient. Agile. To believe that active investing can be a force for good.
Today, the company manages R2.3 trillion* for their clients globally. They still see the world from a different perspective. Whether it is the rise of the East or the rise of the machines, they will always seek to make the best of it. Best for their clients, best for the company, and the best for the world they live in. They are investing for a world of change. The company began as a small start-up based in South Africa offering domestic investment strategies. In 2020, almost three decades of growth later, the company de-merged from the group to become an independent asset manager listed on the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges.
While the name may have changed, they are still the same firm. They offer distinctive investment strategies spanning equities, fixed income, multi-asset, alternatives and sustainability to help institutional investors, those advising others and individuals navigate an ever-changing world. All the employees have the opportunity to own part of the firm. They also have their founding leadership in place. The distinctive owner culture allows them to commit to building a long-term, inter-generational business. It supports a business fully aligned with their clients’ long-term investment objectives.

They now seek a digital production associate to join their team. You will report to the head of digital global marketing. This is a maternity cover but there is LOADS going on – so it’s a great meaty contract and given the brand and global footprint will be a huge advantage on your CV.

An outstanding opportunity to join a vibrant, dynamic and forward-looking digital marketing team, operating a high-performance culture with a keen sense of commercial awareness and alignment with key business stakeholders through a committed partnership approach.
