About the Opportunity

Borne out of the concerning trend that communities are becoming more and more disconnected, resulting in increased anxiety and loneliness, this social enterprise has been launched in an attempt to improve the sense of belongingness and connection - particularly within student populations. After extensive research and investment, this location-based app has been piloted to great success and is now ready to scale up.

About the role

You have a background in sales and marketing, and ideally also have experience across tech-led environments. No two days will be the same - you may be bouncing between partnership meetings, identifying new commercial opportunities and chasing them down, engaging with users for feedback, or working alongside the digital agency to loop into features and enhancements. You are proactive, intuitive and a fast learner. You know how to hustle, are extremely self-motivated and comfortable working in ambiguity. This role will lead the commercialisation and growth of the app across Australia, increasing the user base to solidify it in market, whilst identifying and developing commercial partnerships and other revenue streams. You will have the ability to work with other specialiists. Experience across the youth / student market is highly advantageous. The role can be based from home, a co-working space, or surround yourself with some of the brightest digital minds by setting up within the partnering digital agency. If you are ready to take the plunge into a start up, and are prepared to roll up your sleeves - there is certainly a lot of upside to this opportunity! This role will initially be set up as a 12 month fixed term contract.
