We are looking for a regional press officer, Africa.
This person will handle Bolt’s PR in Kenya or Ghana in-house, and manage the agencies representing our Ghanian, Tanzanian and Ugandan markets. The Eastern African and West African markets are a really important region to Bolt – you can look forward to the thrills and spills of our burgeoning ride-hailing, micromobility and food delivery product lines.
It’s an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have a big say on how an extremely ambitious, fast-growing company like Bolt is perceived across multiple countries.
Let’s build the future of mobility together!
Your daily adventures will include:
Draft and execute a local PR plan, in co-operation with the local operations team and HQ PR team
Keep an eye out for PR opportunities, and proactively act on them
Handle press enquiries professionally and in a timely manner, converting new contacts into close ones
Act as day-to-day contact with existing PR agencies in the region
Work with PR agencies to ensure Bolt remains top of mind
Regularly measure and review performance to ensure output remains high
Train and prepare local spokespeople
Co-ordinate consumer PR activities with the marketing team, leveraging PR content in social media and vice versa
We are looking for:
At least 5 years of experience in a PR agency or in-house comms team for a growth company
Knowledge of the local media landscape, connections in newsrooms and an understanding of what works and what doesn’t on the local market
International experience – you’ve run PR campaigns that have included a number of markets, and you know how to adapt messages for different audiences
Crisis communication skills to manage unexpected situations
A strategic mindset coupled with an eye for detail
Outstanding writing skills as well as an understanding of different styles of writing (from press releases to op-eds, from blog posts to spokesperson briefings)
Native/native-level written and spoken Swahili, excellent English
A can-do approach to solving problems. Never done that before? Not in your job description? You don’t care, you’ll work it out.
Why you’ll love it here:
Your daily duties will have a meaningful impact on millions of people all over the world.
You’ll be surrounded by the most friendly, supportive colleagues you can imagine.
As we grow, so will you! Bolt’s fast-paced, challenging environment offers you great opportunities for professional development.
You’ll always be kept informed. Our bi-weekly All Hands meetings bring our global teams together, ensuring we’re all up to speed and moving forward as one.
Switching off is important! At Bolt, we like to work hard and play hard. Enjoy our fun team events, office snacks, free merch and more!
