This past October, Condé Nast International and Nervora launched Vogue Arabia digitally, bringing the world’s preeminent fashion publication to the Arab world and marking the first time in Vogue’s storied history that it has launched as a digital-first publication. The print edition was launched in March 2017, and both editions will empower Vogue Arabia’s influential audience to experience a tradition of narrative-focused editorial and visually arresting imagery in new and richer ways.

The Right Candidate (About You):

The launch of Vogue in the Arab world is historic both because of its introduction to the region and because of its initial digital focus. This is a rare and special opportunity to be a part of a launch, dig into the inner workings of Vogue, and get a front-row seat at one of the most critical points in Vogue Arabia’s journey. It’s also an opportunity to be a transformative player in building an iconic digital presence and extending Vogue’s unique role as a cultural barometer. Given the gravity of this launch, we’re setting the bar high and demanding a lot of potential candidates. The right candidates should have the experience, skills, and qualifications below.

  • You’re bilingual. Vogue Arabia will be published in both English and Arabic, with a social media presence that reflects that breakdown. You must be capable of managing Vogue Arabia’s platforms across both languages.
  • You’ve got a proven track record. We’re looking for a Social Media Manager that has a proven track record and a deep bench of experience building a sizeable social media presence and engaging social media content that is backed with a portfolio of work and concrete performance numbers. Loving fashion and Vogue isn’t enough. We are measuring candidates by how they’ve transformed their love for fashion, storytelling, or social media from sentiment into real, consumable work products. Serious candidates should have multiple years of experience. You should also have demonstrable experience in understanding the cultural nuances of the Arab world and in the various countries that are part of it.
  • You’re a passionate and polished storyteller. We’re looking for someone who is passionate about storytelling and whose passion manifests itself in great copywriting, impeccable grammar, and a sharp visual sense. You should care deeply not only about the fundamentals of storytelling but also actively seek out new modalities with which to tell a story. To tell a great story, you also have to be a great communicator that can take complex or abstract ideas and translate them into simple and powerful content.
  • You’re technologically savvy. You should be well versed in all major social media platforms with a keen understanding of each platforms requirements, constraints, and effectiveness. Staying on top of new platform capabilities is a must, but you should also have skills that allow you to produce content like Adobe Creative Cloud applications.
  • You’re cerebral and analytical. While social media is partly an art, you’re an avid proponent of building structure to constantly measure, test, and identify what elements contribute to effective social media while staying on-brand. You let data guide you but not overrun you, and you have an acute comprehension and strong background in social media analytics and content performance.
  • You’re a self-starter. Because this is a launch and akin to a startup, there won’t be inherited corporate infrastructure, a team of subordinates, or large budgets so we’re looking for someone who can take the initiative without needing direction.  The role requires a lot of grit, gumption, and a relentlessly resourceful attitude to source and create content and proactively build a framework for operational excellence. You should be highly organised, disciplined, and love rolling up your sleeves.
