Importantly, you will evaluate successes to inform future marketing plans and to identify cross cutting opportunities.

Internal Communications: As the custodian of the DIT Forward Look of key events, you will be required to update the calendar on a monthly basis with input from each team.  As the calendar is shared with partners and key departments in BHC, you will be required to follow-up on questions asked and respond promptly. In addition, you are required to submit short summaries of DIT events that have taken place each month to the DIT Marketing Hub based in Hong Kong.

Developing a more strategic approach: Working within the wider strategic direction for DIT Marketing, and with the Regional Marketing Hub, you will help DIT Singapore continue to take a more coordinated and focused approach to marketing, and shape the marketing plans for future years through the yearly business planning process which starts in December.  You will also analyse existing and potential communication channels (such as Twitter, LinkedIn) and provide advice on how and if they should be utilised in order to meet campaign objectives.

You’ll be expected to deliver a wide range of marketing activity, from event management to development of marketing collaterals, and social media management. You are expected to work closely with FCDO Communications team when media is required at DIT’s events.
