What are we looking for?
Raizcorp Basecamp, in Sandton, is looking for a keen and spirited small business marketing coach who has a flair for entrepreneurship. A marketing coach is a marketing guru who has great business acumen and experience, and has a desire to help entrepreneurs navigate and grow their businesses within the marketing realm.
What does a marketing coach do?
A marketing coach is a marketing specialist who walks an exciting and colourful journey of development with a diverse portfolio of entrepreneurs. The purpose of this role is to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses and become more proficient in the language of marketing. Our marketing guides do not do for our entrepreneurs. Instead, they question, share knowledge, create alternatives, and offer support.
Do I need to be an experienced business coach?
No, marketing guides do not need to be qualified or trained coaches. While it does help, it is not an express requirement. We do look for a pattern of people development throughout your career, which may take various forms.
Is this consulting work?
No, we will give you an internationally recognised coaching qualification that is designed to the meet the specific nuances of the entrepreneurial journey. As a marketing coach, you will receive intensive training. Our coaches are specialist professionals who subscribe to a high ethical standard which is maintained through continuous professional development. Coaches are non-prescriptive in their approach and our entrepreneurs remain in the driver seat at all times.
What kind of person makes a good Coach?
A Coach has heart, and a marketing coach has a flair for innovation and creativity. As a coach, it is imperative to genuinely care about the exciting and multi-faceted journey of the entrepreneur. Coaches should be free from judgement. You need to be mature in approach and should be able to create a safe space for a diverse range of people. A Coach should be able to hang his or her ego at the door, and should be willing to learn. A Coach shares freely and comfortably.
Raizcorp is, according to The Economist, the only genuine incubator in Africa. However, we prefer to think of ourselves as a Prosperator™ rather than an incubator. We provide business support for enthusiastic, growth-hungry entrepreneurs, offering them a platform that fosters learning and guidance, which can be translated into practical business success.
What are the minimum requirements I need?
- A tertiary qualification in marketing.
- Entrepreneurial and corporate experience.
- A minimum 12 – 15 years’ business experience.
- Strong communication ability and a proactive attitude.
- Detailed understanding of small and medium business marketing.
