Are you our new Community Manager in Singapore?

Day-in-a-Life of our Community Manager

The Community Manager plays a central role in our Growth team, assisting the development and execution of our accelerator programmes, the supporting innovation campaigns and ecosystem activities.

The objective of the role is to ensure our programs and campaigns run seamlessly and successfully, delivering exceptional results for our startup founders and partners.

You will be working and taking direction from the Programme Director to ensure the successful delivery of each programme and the engagement of the community in the region. .

You will be a central point of contact for engagement in the region and directly  contribute to the success for our accelerator programmes.   Your role is to be the glue that brings all these components of a program together, ensuring they are executed in an organised, smooth and effective manner.

You will have a challenging, diverse and very rewarding role to support the ongoing growth of BlueChilli, working as an integral part of the team and across a variety of tasks in program delivery including operations, campaign coordination, account management, communications and events.

Type of projects you’ll be working on…

BlueChilli runs a number of accelerator programs, with two programs normally running concurrently. You will be starting with the BlueChilli HealthTech Accelerator ( https://www.bluechilli.com/sg/) for Southeast Asia which is based in Singapore and you will be part of implementing our inaugural run of the programme!

Typical tasks…

  • Coordinate the day-to-day administration of the programs and associated activities as required by the Program Directors and Accelerator Manager.
  • Work with the Marketing & Communications team to coordinate applicant recruitment, submission and judging process, and arrange pitch days and judging panels.
  • Coordinate and manage logistics around the accelerator program workshops and events as directed by the Programme Directors or Accelerator Manager,  including managing speakers, timelines, venues, training collateral, AV and participant on-boarding.
  • Drive and sustain community engagement with ecosystem partners necessary to support the success of our programmes.
  • Create belonging and engagement in each  founder cohort.

You are…

  • A relationship builder – you enjoy meeting new people, building and sustaining relationships with diverse individuals of all professional levels.
  • A problem-solver – comfortable with making decisions around prioritisation and program execution details in a daily context. Able to make execution decisions quickly and communicating the rationale for this decision-making with ease.
  • Super organised – you are able to take abstract ideas and turn them into easily-understandable documents and materials.
  • A quick learner – you love learning new things, and quickly figuring out to do things for the first time.
  • A collaborator – you enjoy communicating and collaborating in a professional, approachable and effective manner with a range of stakeholders.
  • Calm in the storm – we’re a high-energy team often operating on last minute opportunities. Knowing you’ve got things covered will help keep us calm and in control!

It would be extra awesome if you also had…

  • A clear passion and curiosity for the startup and innovation ecosystem.
  • An ability to use (or quickly learn how to) a range of technology platforms and tools, so you can help navigate new technology as it is brought into our business.
  • The ability to travel, as a number of our programs have national and international components.

If you do a good job…

This role works at the intersection of our growth  team, our accelerators team, our marketing team and our operations team. There is plenty of opportunity to use this role as a platform to spring into any of those areas as you discover what you love doing best. This means you could end up stepping into partnerships and growth, running one of our next programs yourself in the future, designing workshops as you learn what works effectively for founder education, or working on campaigns and events for the broader BlueChilli group.
