Digital Marketing Manager 

To enhance the visibility and impact of ECLJ's activities, we are looking to increase our educational content and improve our presence on social networks. That is why we are looking to recruit a Digital Marketing Manager.

The Digital Marketing Manager will work under the supervision of ECLJ's Communications Manager to accomplish the following tasks, alone or in tandem:

Publish content on ECLJ's social networks (Facebook, X, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Telegram);

Record and edit videos (shorts/reels, short videos, interviews, conferences, etc.);

Create graphics of vignettes, conference posters, and article illustrations for our website and social networks;

Create and distribute emails to subscribers (newsletters and appeals for donations);

Manage the advertising budget on social networks (mainly Meta ads);

Develop digital strategies and brand positioning for the ECLJ.


Main Objective

Assist the Communications Manager in all these tasks to increase the quantity and quality of content published by the ECLJ on social networks.



Improve the ECLJ's marketing by taking and adapting what has already been done and providing expertise on the various platforms used by the ECLJ. The time spent on the Marketing Manager's various tasks will vary according to the ECLJ's needs and the Marketing Manager's skills.

The Marketing Manager will mainly work alone but will occasionally collaborate with the Communications Manager.


Development Prospects and Responsibilities:

The position will evolve so that the Marketing Manager can eventually work independently in the medium term (6 months) and possibly with another collaborator depending on ECLJ's media needs in the longer term (2 years or more). Responsibility for the development of digital strategies, as well as the expansion and use of new media and tools, could be part of the evolution of the position if the marketing manager has the skills to do so in the medium/long term (1 year and more).

Trained in digital marketing;

Personal or professional experience in promoting content on social networks;

Mastery of digital tools (editing and graphics software, Meta Business Manager, etc.).
