Job Introduction

 

Are you a native Mandarin speaker looking for a Content Manager role that gives you the chance to combine your editorial flair with logical thinking and meticulous attention to detail to deliver first-class content to the Chinese market?  Are you searching for a job where you’ll get to manage language translation online for a luxury retailer where customer experience is at the forefront of the vision? Looking for a company that wants to help further your career in content management as well as provide you with an exciting, inspiring and fun place to work?  

If the answer to all of these questions is ‘yes’ then you’re just the kind of person we’re looking for! 

Role Responsibility

As our new China Content Manager you’ll be responsible for managing translation of all digital content and providing quality assurance and approval of newly translated/created content for Selfridges online. As part of this, you will: 

·       Manage translation quality across all our digital store-fronts in Chinese regions (e.g. selfridges.com/CN/zh). 

·       Work closely with the Editorial team to ensure Selfridges brand integrity is maintained online using your own experience and expert knowledge of the Chinese market. 

·       Manage the accurate and timely delivery of translated content (e.g. product, editorial, app push) across all devices and day-to-day operations in collaboration with a translation partner. 

·       Be heavily involved in managing machine translation by developing a glossary, arranging translation priorities and trouble-shooting when needed. 

·       Be involved in app updates and website release projects to ensure the Chinese digital storefronts are of high quality both editorially and functionally. 

·       Support the China Marketing and Content Manager to manage the translation budget and signing off BAU social media copy.  

·       Work cross-functionally to develop bespoke content for the Chinese market for key moments of the year (e.g. Chinese New Year, Golden Week, Singles Day). 

·       Share local customer and market insight widely across the business with Trade, B&M, Retail Operations. 

 

The Ideal Candidate

·       It is essential that you’re bi-lingual for this role (Mandarin mother tongue, fluent in English and able to read and write in Simplified Chinese.)  

·       You’ll have proven experience of translating, transcreating and editing luxury fashion or lifestyle copy.  

·       You’ll be logical in nature and take a methodical approach to problem-solving. You’ll also be comfortable identifying pain points in complex processes, especially when it comes to the translation workflow.  

·       You will have an interest and awareness in the fashion industry and some experience working in luxury would really help you out in this role.  

·       Selfridges is a fast-paced business, so you’ll deal with change well and have a flexible attitude towards your work.  

·       You will have up-to-date knowledge of the ecosystem of Chinese social media (e.g. Weibo, WeChat) and the ability to communicate this to the business concisely.  

 

This job is a brilliant opportunity to join a talented team who are passionate about delivering an exceptional customer experience. If you’re looking to come into a new role that is fast paced where you can make a real impact from day one, then this will be perfect for you. It doesn’t just stop at your China Content Manager role either - we have lots of opportunities to get involved and collaborate on projects and in communities internally, so no two days will ever be the same. As Harry Gordon Selfridge once said, ‘There’s no fun like work!’
