We need Senior BDMs who get mums!
Are you looking for a position that celebrates the fact you want to work hours that fit in with your family?
Mouths of Mums is one of the leading digital publishers in the parenting space in Australia. Offering mums with children of all ages everything they actually want to read, win, cook, share, test and review means that we are on a rapid growth curve.
Our strategy is to connect mums with mums; creating meaningful interactions between members on site and importantly generating massive earned social reach and incredibly valuable user-generated content for brands to leverage across all marketing channels.
With over 90,000 members, over 202,000 facebook fans, over 400,000 unique visitors to the Mouths of Mums site per month and over 1,000,000 pageviews per month, we are ready to take our business to the next level in 2015.
Who are you now?
Most importantly you understand mums – whether it’s a mum with a newborn, a mum whose children are all now at school, a mum who has non-biological children or any variation in between! You understand just what it’s like to live life as a mum.
You may have worked in a mid to senior marketing role, a mid to senior agency or media role or you may have previously worked in sales in digital publishing. You might have gone back into the corporate world (or you’re thinking about it) but are questioning the amount of time you’re spending away from home.
You know in your heart you don’t want a full-time (or close to full time) role but you still want to contribute, feel valued, feel recognised and enjoy the recognition and success that working with a like-minded team delivers.
You’ve got so much experience and you have continued to nurture your network of contacts and you’d love to get back into it. However you’re struggling to find a role that allows you to decide how you’d like to work, where you’d like to work, what you’d like to earn and still have the time and freedom to live the life you want!
Who do we need?
If you are someone just like we’ve described above, we need you! We know there is no one better to bring to life what mums value, what they need, how they consume digital media or how they value user-generated content, and how they are making purchase decisions than you.
We’re looking for business development managers with an established network of mid to senior marketers, media managers and strategists or mid to senior agency contacts. Your role may cover pure business development or you may prefer a hybrid role of business development combined with account management.
You may also have the experience and desire to take on management of another business component (e.g. lead generation, member acquisition, production management, writing and reporting, new product development or integration).
How would it work?
You’ll have the freedom to create your own working style and hours and work from home (or you are welcome to work from our office on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney). These opportunities are not restricted to Sydney – we are looking for team members in other states too.
We would work with you to understand how you’d like to work, create your network territory to ensure no cross over with other team members, scope the opportunities for revenue and set a base salary + OTE – a highly collaborative process.
We will supply a core set of marketing and sales materials however you would be responsible for generating your own proposals, selling into your contacts (with the support of the Mouths of Mums management team) and then providing a completed campaign brief to the MoM Production Team.
You would then be responsible for presenting post campaign reports (prepared by MoM Production) and managing the ongoing relationship with your client.
Once per fortnight we would bring the full Mouths of Mums team together in our office for a Work in Progress, forward planning, product launches, new product development workshops etc (interstate team members would teleconference in and then meet with the management team monthly/bi-monthly).
If this has got you thinking, don’t think anymore.
Now is such a precious time and it is only yours for such a short time … corporate careers usually don’t understand that.
We are all about working at nap times, celebrating school hours and working around school holidays … because when it’s working for you, it’s working for everyone!
If you’re happy to work hard (just on your terms) and have a pile of clients or colleagues you could grab a coffee with now to tell them all about Mouths of Mums, reach out to us.
Please contact the MoM Careers team: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: If we don’t get back to you right away, we’re probably with a client. Or we’re at netball, soccer, dance or swimming lessons … or feeding our babes, picking up from childcare, cooking dinner, supervising homework or brushing out the knots in baby fine hair!
