Lushomo helps partner organisations do good by communicating complex information effectively. We work mainly with United Nations clients and other international organisations in the areas of health, environment, education and economic development. We are mission driven and only take on work that has a positive social impact. Lushomo is growing steadily, and together we are becoming leaders in information design and research communication.
We are looking to add an Account Manager to our team at the junior or mid- level.
The right person will have a blend of creativity and technical know-how, be organised, quick to learn and work well under pressure within a small team.
Here's what you would get out of it:
This position will involve traditional project management activities such as planning, delegating and delivering to time and budget. But also, a big component of the role is digesting and summarising technical content (often health or environment, but other fields as well) to generate creative and effective solutions, communicating our ideas to designers and developers, and steering projects through to completion. This involves conceptualising visual products, such as data visualisations, infographics, animations etc.
In short: you will be figuring out what a client wants to share and how, and proposing the creative solution and process for delivering on that request. It is important that you have an interest in design and will enjoy working in an iterative, unpredictable process. You should also be willing to help out generally wherever needed; we’re a small team so we all wear multiple hats.
We often work under pressure to meet tough deadlines and within tight budgets but the work is varied and each day is different. We are always pushing the boundaries to learn new technical skills (such as interactive data design, UX/UI, augmented reality etc.) and keep our products fresh and relevant in a fast-changing communications landscape. Visit our website, Lushomo.net for lots of examples of the type of work we do.
