The Generator, Monash University’s startup hub, is built on the belief that great startups create real value in the world. As Australia’s largest university, Monash University has untapped access to brilliant young minds focused on changing the world. Just three years in, the Generator program is young but punches above its weight. With several startups supported to multi-million dollar valuations, and the online and offline community doubling each year, The Generator is just getting started. If you’re looking for an opportunity to shape the future generation of startup founders, and transform education, this is it.

The Opportunity

The Events and Marketing Officer is a new role designed to complement the tight-knit Generator team. The core purpose of the role is to support and grow the Generator’s online and offline community.

A day in the life of the Events and Marketing Officer will involve management of digital communications channels, design and delivery of events and workshops, and creation of engaging content – from Instagram stories, to emails, to blog articles. As the first point of call for the Generator, you will be integral in maintaining strong community relationships and engagement. Having your finger on the startup pulse at Monash, you’ll be voicing the startup needs of the faculties and student groups and be part of the team driving the growth of our physical presence across campus. You will be based with the core Generator team in the Clayton co-working space and will be ensuring the community experience within the co-working space is engaging and on point. During peak times, the position will also support general administrative duties across the team.

You will be working closely with the Community Manager, who will provide guidance and support with the execution of strategy, design and delivery of your core responsibilities. With their past experience in Marketing for one of the fastest growing startups in Australia, this is also a rare chance to receive direct and on the job marketing training.

About You

You believe that empathy and good communication are the keys to building great relationships with individuals and groups alike. In your spare time you’re out and about going to events and socialising, or at home getting lost in learning new and interesting things. You’re an inherently curious person, and always looks for new and efficient ways to solve problems. Embodying the belief that entrepreneurial thinking is critical to truly creating value in the world – whether it’s at work, at home or building a startup.

Your beliefs and personal investment in the entrepreneurial way of life have been developed through immersing yourself in the startup space, or perhaps even building your own.

You see the value in both quantitative and qualitative analysis in marketing campaigns, because data and metrics tell one very important story, but can’t always quantify brand impact – as brands are a combination of art and science. You know that great brands are about building emotional connections and creating an incredible experience, both online and offline. Whether it’s designing and running an event, writing a social post, or greeting a founder at the co-working space, each deserves the same level of care and respect.

Most importantly, you care about helping people and are excited to help play an important part of something truly new in the education space and are along for the ride.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

Experience using Adobe Creative Suite is highly desirable.
