Strategy Development Consultancy for High-Growth Entrepreneurs

Junior Podcast Editor and Content Creator

Job Context and Opportunity

Metavolve is a strategy development consultancy that works with founders of high-growth businesses to help them achieve strategic clarity and sustainable success – whilst avoiding years of trial-and-error. As part of our vision to cut down the failure rate of ambitious entrepreneurs and reduce the time it takes to build a great sustainable business, we have produced The Founder Files Podcast.

The Founder Files (TFF) exists to provide high-growth entrepreneurs with fireside chat-esque insights and stories from founders who have been there before, so that our listeners can avoid years of trial-and-error in scaling their own businesses. We’ve released over 70 episodes and we have been rated by Feedspot as the #1 Podcast for Entrepreneurs in South Africa. Due to the momentum, recognition and success of the podcast in helping us achieve our vision, we are increasing our investment in the production, content and marketing of the podcast.

Our goals for TFF are to achieve a consistently high level of episode quality and to consistently rank in the top 5% of business podcasts in South Africa. For us to achieve these goals, we are looking for a meticulous and creative individual to join our team as a Podcast Editor and Content Creator. As an important member of our team, you will be responsible for editing the podcast episodes, producing compelling visual and audio content, crafting engaging stories and podcast descriptions, and fostering an engaged audience/community across various social media platforms.
