We’re Hiring! Social Media Executive

Author Jon Quinton 4 min read time

2018 has been an exciting year to say the least. In the last six months we’ve rebranded, moved office, taken on a host of amazing brands and continued to develop an excellent team that loves doing what they do. Thanks to their hard graft, we’re in a position where we’re hiring again and looking to expand our team.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for someone who loves all things social. A large part of the remit here will be running day to day activity on paid social campaigns, so you’ll need to have a keen interest in what’s going on in the world of social but also feel excited about the marketing opportunities platforms such as Facebook and Instagram present for brands.

If this sounds like something you would love to do but have no prior experience, that’s fine. We’ll work closely with you on training and set out a clear development plan to make sure you progress.

This job comes with all the standard benefits, but most importantly you’ll be joining a fun team of people that are committed to helping you grow and master your craft. You’ll feel challenged for sure, but you’ll be in a fully supportive environment and get the satisfaction of seeing the direct impact of your work on your clients business.
