What Our Team Says

AAC team testimonials (3).jpg
AAC team testimonials.jpg

We asked Ana… How will your role collaborate with this role?

As the Marketing Manager, I would be collaborating a lot with the Learning and Digital Manager, especially when it comes to the creation of content for marketing purposes.


First, I’ll help you get in touch with our content creation and marketing processes, the tools we use and how we’re using content to support our programs (such as email sequences and website content related to our online course and job board).


After that, we will be working together in making sure the content strategy aligns with the overall marketing strategy and AAC’s goals, according to each step of our users’ journey.


Some specific channels and strategies we could collaborate together include SEO (keyword and topic research, blog post writing and optimisations, etc), content for our email sequences and for social media. The tasks you’ll be working on are very flexible, and I’m happy to distribute work according to our unique skills and preferences. :)

We asked Ana... What are you responsible for, day to day?

The main areas of my work include:

  • SEO: Making sure our website doesn’t have any SEO issues and fixing them when they come up (both technical and keyword optimisation).

  • Email marketing: Setting up and improving our email sequences for people that join our mailing list (through the online course, job board and general sign up forms).

  • Fundraising: I’m also developing some fundraising campaigns.

  • Job board: I update the job board weekly and send out an email and social media post with the new roles; I also try to continually set up systems to improve the functionality and updating process of our job board

  • Social media: I’m currently doing the social media posts, but this might be something that the new content manager would take on, depending on their preferences.

  • Ads: I’m managing our Google Ad grant and doing occasional campaigns on Meta ads.

  • Promotion of specific campaigns and projects we have: From time to time, we have specific projects to promote and create content about. For example, our Fundraising Work Placement only happens once a year or less.

  • Strategy: I create AAC’s marketing strategy and come up with initiatives to increase the reach and engagement of our audience.
