The best way to support hookah masters from lounges who were left without work – is to offer them o job. Special program for hookah brands employers – #HookahMastersHelper

 

As you may know, not long ago we have launched (in beta) first in the world international service – HHH (Hookah Head Hunt) which helps find a job in the hookah industry.

 

At the moment (April 2020), the global epidemic Covid19 is unfolding in the world, as a result of which the majority of hookah lounges have closed (by the way, we recently published interviews with hookah lounge owners and how they deal with the crisis, check it), many employees of these venues (mainly hookah workers) were left without work and money.

 

Some representatives of the Russian hookah community launched charity events, for example, Antonov Denis (Egeglass representative in the Russian Federation) launched a fundraising project: the owners of lounges register their location in the system -> sympathetic people or brands make donations for a specific one or for all lounges at once -> the representative of the lounge sends the received funds to their hookah workers.

 

In this article, we want to send a message to the manufacturers of hookah products. Most people working in the hookah sector suffer from the current crisis, but employees of closed lounges suffer especially. We ask you to support these people and offer them any job for your brand that they could handle remotely. We understand that in the current conditions it is not very reasonable to increase staff, and many manufacturers simply do not have new vacancies, so we want to give you a list of ideas that might be relevant at the present time. Those brands that respond to our request will receive some special achievement and media support from Hookah Battle:

  •  We will make an article about your company in the Russian language on our Vkontakte page and in English on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
  • The page of your company in our system (potential employees and partners look at them) will be assigned a unique badge “Hookah Masters Helper”, even when the epidemic passes, good deeds will remain in the history of your brand and people will remember it.

Here is a list of our ideas on what vacancies would be useful for hookah manufacturers now:

 

SMM (Social Media Marketing) manager for a local audience

Not all hookah producers actively conduct their social networks. If you do not have a person who is responsible for the social services network, maybe now is the time to think about it? For any brand, it is important to remind yourself in social networks and increase the number of subscribers (even in crises period). Already have an SMM manager? It often happens that companies develop only 1-2 social channels. For example, now you only lead your channel on Instagram. Perhaps you could hire an individual person in order to maintain a separate page and attract subscribers to Facebook or develop your streams on twitch.

 

SMM manager for overseas audiences

It often happens that a successful brand in its own country does not make itself known in other countries. Maybe you should at least try to do it? You can hire a person who speaks foreign languages and instruct him to develop the pages of your organization with the involvement of subscribers from other countries.

Salary can be either lump-sum (payment for posts/growth of subscribers) or fixed.

Remote Sales Sales Manager for Local Market

You have products and you need to sell them. Why not increase the staff of sales managers by adding those who can work remotely on a small fixed salary + percentage of the sale.

 

Remote Sales Sales Manager for Overseas Market

You could hire a person with knowledge of foreign languages who would contact foreign stores and sell your products.

 

Copywriter for articles on the website

Surely your website has functionality for publishing articles (and it’s useful to do them – you improve the search results for your website). Professional hookah workers could write some articles for your site with pay-as-you-go payments.

 

Brand Ambassador (online work)

Usually, the main task of ambassadors is to visit hookah lounges/shops with a presentation of the product. Therefore, even if your brand did not have ambassadors, now their relevance is in question. However, you could hire ambassadors to work online: regular streams and workshops in social media pages (maybe in collaborations with hookah shops) with a story about your product and masterclasses. Among professional hookah workers (from lounges), there are probably a lot of people who love your brand and are ready to work for you.

 

Counterfeit Manager

Often come across fakes on your product? But does not have enough time to deal with this problem? Among hookah workers, there are people with a legal education (yes it happens), you can hire a person who will track in the network of manufacturers/sellers of counterfeit products, contact them, make official complaints. You can assign work on the study of how to register patents in different countries.

 

Project Manager at Remote Work

Even if you have a small company, it often happens that the CEO does not have time to monitor the setting, structuring, and implementation of all tasks by employees. For example, in Hookah Battle, we have a project manager (assistant manager) for remote work, his tasks include:

  • Build the structure of the tasks of employees in the online task manager (we use the Monday service)
  • Track deadlines, remind employees about them
  • Attend online meetings, record new tasks / adjust old ones
  • Once a month sums up (report for the head) which employees more often violated deadlines / completed more tasks

 

Graphic Designer

You made your company logo, but did not create a corporate identity/style? Do you have an outdated design for commercial offers? Materials on the website or in the social media pages do not look as beautiful as you would like? Among the people working in the hookah field, there are talented guys who can draw. Publish a proposal for a piece of design work.

 

If you have any questions about registering your company in the HHH Hookah Battle system and placing a vacancy, then contact the project manager, Kirill Fedorishchev:
