Coca-Cola Europacific Partners

Social Media Manager

From a secret recipe to a bold idea and very proud traditions, we build the future. Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) is a major fast-moving consumer goods business in Europe and the world’s largest independent Coca-Cola bottler.  

Leading brands, great people and a focus on (personal) growth that comes with it.

Do you like to be able to influence and make a difference?  Does a fast paced environment suit you?

Do you enjoy working in a multi-functional environment with a desire to succeed?

At CCEP, we want to provide a workplace where people are inspired to be the best they can be.  We know that engaged, motivated employees, working to their full capacity and able to reach their personal career goals, are a critical part of our Company’s long-term success.

We believe that equal opportunities means inclusion, diversity and fair treatment for all.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a communications function with a clear ambition to make social and digital channels a core part of the way we communicate.

As the world’s largest Coca-Cola bottler, CCEP interacts with a diverse and active set of audiences and stakeholders. We’re fortunate to work on some of the most pressing and topical issues around, from the role of businesses in society, to reducing carbon and supporting communities and economies.

Effective social media is a vital part of our commitment to engaging with these stakeholders and leading on these issues. This role is responsible for the planning, creation and regular posting of content, working on the Sustainability and Workplace topics.

And this role will have the opportunity to shape, build and execute global campaigns as part of the central communications team that develops, coordinates and executes corporate communications across 26 markets worldwide.

The Social Media Manager role exists to build and develop relationships with key communities and audiences for CCEP using the company’s owned digital platforms, including the company’s website and social platforms externally (currently Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook) and on internal channels that reach over 33,000 employees across the globe.

It is an opportunity to showcase a keen understanding of social media platforms and how best to build and interest audiences by ensuring that content is relevant and engaging for the communities it manages online. The role will also use that content as a starting point for a conversation.

It will ensure that communications with these audiences becomes a two-way dialogue and will be responsible for responding in an agile manner to messages and questions posted on social media in response to the company’s communications, as well as identifying proactive opportunities to engage in relevant social dialogue to build connections and reach. It will monitor a range of social feeds of partner organisations, competitors and thought leaders on key issues to identify shared agendas and to create dialogue with those organisations where possible.

It will also play a key role in developing understanding of key audiences on those platforms and in doing so, help to shape the success of future content. It will work with the Data and Insights working group within the campaigns team to build that audience understanding and to ensure that paid support for social channels is correctly targeted at key influencers within our digital communities.

The role will work alongside the wider campaigns team and the specialist digital platforms role to ensure that communications issued on our owned channels are relevant and engaging, and that their impact and outcomes are measured against communications targets. This role will also be an advocate for adopting a social first approach to campaigns.
