The Great Red Spot (TGRS), the largest storm on the Solar System that has been going on for hundreds of years, is now shrinking on Jupiter and moving Islamabad. Inspiring, collaborative, creative and modern community space, TGRS aims to awaken the community of Islamabad, to make the city feel alive, to immerse residents in the force of fast-paced culture of inspired work. TGRS’s mission is to strengthen the city as a community by becoming a centre of engagement for adults and children, professionals and non-working individuals, artists and corporates.
We are proud of the fact that The Great Red Spot is blurred in distinction - it offers a range of activities that were once done in separate places. It is embracing democratisation of innovation, where people are elevated and empowered to articulate how a space should be moulded to support their needs and ambitions.
TGRS is actively seeking a friendly, analytical and detail-oriented person in the role of Community Manager. You will help us grow the community by crafting high quality experiences while executing sales and operational tasks with excellence. This is your opportunity to take ownership and responsibility of a mission-driven business with the complete support and experience of the directors.
