[Jobs roundup] Does branding excite you? Check out these managerial roles in startups

If creating brand strategies and helping in marketing is your forte, then here are a few brand manager roles for you.

A brand is often considered as an organisation's window to its customers. Thus, building a brand and maintaining it is important and crucial for any company.

One of the primary things to ensure this is by creating marketing strategies in accordance with the organisations' objectives and budget. As 'brand guardians', brand managers are expected to maintain brand integrity across all marketing initiatives and communications of the company - both online and offline. It is their duty to ensure that the company's brand is highlighted across all mediums and communication channels.

Brand managers, also sometimes known as marketing managers, often conduct market research for a company to help in making it stand-out from the competitors in the market. This involves surveying and polling demographics and determining demand for products, among other relevant field research.
