    THE POSITION

    JMI is looking for a highly skilled, all-round Communications Manager to join our team. It is a multifaceted position and we search for a motivated candidate with an international profile and a wide range of communications experience to manage our extensive portfolio.

    The Communications Manager is expected to deliver, on time, innovative work that meets top international standards. The position requires the management of the several websites including their development, upkeep and content. Each website has corresponding social media channels, whose communities must be engaged. We require a candidate with a firm understanding of web project management, UX/UI and “start-up culture”, someone who loves new technologies and new challenges.

Often tasks may fall out of the realm of traditional communications and the candidate must be ready to step out of their comfort zone and up to new challenges. We look for a team player who can operate equally well independently. The candidate must willing to travel and be able to re/present the organisation abroad. A background in music or the music industry are sought after.
