Job description

Are you a heavyweight in Brand Marketing? Have you got boundless experience managing, planning, executing and tracking a number of acquisition marketing campaigns? If you answered yes to both of these questions, you could be the team member we’re looking for to join the DStv Digital Media team.


Sounding promising? Read on to find out more.


Our Team


This is the part that’ll no doubt sell this position to anyone and everyone; you’ll be working with us! We’re all instrumental pieces of a large, dynamic puzzle that fits nicely inside our vibrant environment. As a team, we’re constantly evolving and changing with the times; we’re always doing our best to keep abreast of new media trends and technology.


This Is What You’ll Be Getting Up To


Aside from laughing at our jokes and basking in the glow of our awesomeness, you’ll have some rather important responsibilities.


  • Campaign Planning & Execution - Flex your creative muscle by conceptualising and managing a number of acquisition campaigns, which will include both ATL and BTL campaigns
  • Campaign Analysis - You’ll have to keep tabs on all of your campaigns by analysing the results and using what you learn to power forward.
  • Creative Execution - Can you juggle? You’ll have to plan and execute all creative elements, at the same time as managing and inspiring the commercial design team as they produce jaw-dropping creative for all campaigns and projects.
  • Marketing functions - Provide marketing support to the product managers and marketing team to ensure efficient work flow through the department.
  • Internal Communications - Plan for and maintain the company’s online blog, compile company communications and organise awe-inspiring company events where necessary.


Desired Skills and Experience

You should also have experience in the following areas:

  • At least 5 years working in a digital role with strength in digital marketing
  • Marketing experience in mobile
  • Marketing and campaign management experience
  • An understanding of and experience in Pan-African marketing and the South African media industry
  • Team management skills and experience
  • Incredible customer service orientation
  • PR experience would be an added bonus


If you’re still nodding your head in agreement, then we just need to make sure that you’ll get along with the rest of our unique and interesting crew. You should have the following personal traits in order to make this work:

  • Self-starter 
  • Good presentation skills
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Good negotiation skills
  • Ability to develop and maintain strong 3rd party relationships
  • Ability to work quickly and accurately
  • Ability to maintain your cool under pressure in order to reach set deadlines
  • Ability to laugh at yourself from time to time
  • Strong analytical, technical and mathematical abilities – and no, we don’t mean being able to use a calculator


The closing date for all applications is 15th June– pretty soon, so get cracking! If you haven’t heard from us by 29th June, please consider your application to be unsuccessful.


Please note: We’re not responsible for copies of your CVs and we won’t be returning them after the fact
