Hatch Communication
Communication Account Executive

We want to find the right person to join our team. If the below traits and job description is you, then let us know.

Established in 2013, Hatch Communication has a home-base in Stellenbosch. Our clients include some well-known local brands as well as some impressive global ones. Our areas of expertise are B2B communication (Finance, Legal etc), the wine industry, lifestyle and skincare.

In 2019 we made the bold move to work mainly remotely, with regular check-ins (and Covid-permitting) team get-togethers. Our team is small, effective and has an innate sense of ownership. We are not bound by proximity, to each other or to our clients, as we believe quality work and commitment supersedes all boundaries.


  1. You feel most comfortable when you have a plan and organised day and schedule.
  2. You would rather come up with contingency plans than deal with events as they arise.
  3. You always have a checklist and take notes.
  4. You have a strong work ethic, prioritising your duties and responsibilities.
  5. You take complete ownership of everything you do and can work independently.
  6. You are trustworthy, people can rely on you.

This will include writing and creating content appropriate and specific to various digital platforms, executing and monitoring innovative campaigns, monitoring community engagement and implementing overall brand strategic goals.

* Administratively strong and meticulous. Updating weekly status lists, client contact reports, monthly reporting and meeting notes will be your responsibility.
