It’s a month of rapid fire, quick hire activity here at htxt.africa. If you were keen eyed, you’ll have noticed that earlier this week we started advertising for a mid-level design specialist to help us make our website and magazines look pretty. Now we’re after even more staff, specifically to help our beleaguered sales department.

Yep, if you want to help us turn htxt.africa and all our associated brands into even stronger businesses than they are today – and work alongside one of South Africa’s fastest growing content marketing teams with all the sales opportunities that presents – then we’ve got the job for you. Details are below, earnings are based on a very generous commission. Apply by emailing this link here with a CV and covering letter.
