In May 2017, we announced SILK Ventures, a new $500 million VC fund backed in part by the Chinese government. We’re now looking for a full-time Community Engagement Manager dedicated to telling the stories of SILK and our portfolio companies, communicate our value proposition, as well as sharing intriguing updates on venture capital, technology and China.

The Role

You’ll spread ideas and provide insights to the tech and investor communities. You’ll pick the best gems from press and media and conduct in-depth research to create content on our website and across social media outlets. You’ll also interview start-up founders and network leaders, creating original, thought-provoking content based on their stories.

You will join our supportive, open and entrepreneurial team in Canary Wharf, creating content and building our marketing strategy with us, with the aim of establishing SILK as one of the most recognised names in venture capital with a Chinese angle.

You’ll learn about all aspects of venture capital and transform your career.

You are a self-starter who could learn quickly to become a domain expert. You’re a writer and curator at heart. You could be currently producing content for a start-up, marketing, or handling PR for a corporate. Maybe you’ve commenced your journalism career but want to explore a different way of applying your skills.

You understand online marketing and are experienced in managing social media channels, VC and entrepreneurship Twitter feeds, media pitches, and email marketing. You engage the audience with the content you build, and can quantify your content’s impact using appropriate performance metrics. You have a good understanding of SEO to maximise your reach. You demonstrate leadership and initiative in different contexts.

You are native or highly proficient in both written and spoken English. You are at least business proficient in Chinese, and can conduct research from Chinese sources, understanding both the content and context.

We’re based in London, but we can accommodate flexible working for the perfect candidate. Competitive remuneration, brilliant location, and joining a diverse team of talents. We also consider candidates requiring sponsorship for a Tier 2 Visa.
