Brand new role to become the social media guru for a PR agency and their clients.

The role

Our client is a well-established niche PR consultancy whose clients cover gardening, lifestyle, and leisure. Currently the agency contracts out their social media and they have decided that it's time that they recruited a specialist and brought the service in-house. As the Social Media Manager, you will be responsible for the agency's social media as well social media for a variety of clients. Currently they handle approximately 40% of their client's social media, however they envisage that this will increase when the word spreads. You'll be responsible for the day-to-day management and development of all social media communities across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram as well as emerging platforms. Working with the PR team you'll be required to plan and implement daily social engagement campaigns and actively respond to interactions in a swift, helpful and informative manner.

What we're looking for

As this is a pure social media role we really do need applications from candidates who have a minimum of a years' commercial experience within social media marketing and who are confident in using a range of social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat and Pinterest. Or, you could be in an all-round communications role which includes social media and would prefer to specialise in pure social media. You'll have a proven track record in delivery of KPI driven results and have excellent all-round communications skills. The client's wish list extends to someone who has a strong desire to progress within the company and support the team, be proactive and happy to throw themselves into the role without referring to your job description.

We have worked with this agency over several years, and have witnessed their continued success and can vouch for the great working atmosphere they have.
