Everything from checking for broken links to negotating and closing deals? Good luck with this one! My question: if you were maximising distribution channels and playing to the strengths of the online medium, why on earth is user generated content whacked in under a sort of supplementary-content-and -etc style catchall? Why isn’t that part of the role fleshed out as an intrinsic part of strategy? Unless of course it’s not. Ah well good luck with this one. Job ID 9335881. On Seek.com.au.
