You will be tasked with posting content across the social channels and moderating brand presences within agreed guidelines.

Social media is an essential channel in integrated campaigns and the community manager will be heavily involved in wider campaign development, sharing community insights and influencing creative output. The community manager will work closely with the paid media team to develop and activate a paid media strategy across Europe, making recommendations for budget allocation and format selection.

Reporting on campaign and content performance is also hugely important and you will be in charge of writing a monthly report that highlights key successes and suggests recommendations for the coming months.

You’ll manage the social content calendar across a number of campaigns and events and will be tasked with identifying reactive opportunities, exploring plans for both online and offline engagement and collaborating with the digital and social media team on strategic developments.

You will manage online conversations, responding directly or liaising with customer service team where necessary to ensure communities questions or requests are dealt with effectively and efficiently.

The agency would love you to grow the size and (more importantly) engagement levels of their client’s fan base and encourage participation and advocacy in all social channels and track issues along with deploying crisis management response where necessary. You will brief creative teams to create content to be shared on the social channels each month with the support of the social strategist, and will also contribute to recommendations for paid media on the platforms. You will be actively involved in the coverage and amplification of events across Europe, devising strategies to maximise coverage and exposure online.

You will be charged with developing, optimising and activating a paid media strategy, alongside the paid media team, and will need to recommend budget allocation, channel and format selection and campaign timelines. You’ll report on the performance of platforms and establish a clear understand of community, a knowledge you can share with the wider team to inform wider strategy and comms.

You’ll have an interest and experience in running influencer outreach activity, reporting on campaign performance and providing on the ground social coverage at events, as well as implementing test and learn plans for content across all social platforms to constantly improve on social output.

Finally, you’ll be expected to collaborate in the newly formed comms team, working on proactive and reactive briefs for new and existing clients, educating the agency and clients in best practice and innovations, and assisting in agency comms.

Requirements:

You’ll need experience in community management and content planning for major brands, confident copywriting skills and experience writing for social media ads are essential as well as being able to report and analyse data and insights to a high level. You will also have understanding of the entire international social media universe and an opinion about what the next big trend will be. You’ll be a creative and strategic thinker with the ability to direct digital design. You will be able to conduct in-depth social listening using software such as Brandwatch and Radarly, and you will ideally have experience with influencer outreach and engagement. You are pro-active in your thinking, and your work, and are comfortable in a client-facing role. You will be a go-getter who isn’t afraid to be interesting and think differently to achieve better results.

And most importantly:

This agency are looking for a social media enthusiast that not only knows and understands the social universe, but is also an avid user that is aware of industry trends, platform updates and best in class brand work. You should also have heaps of initiative and be able to spot an opportunity to grow a piece of business.

They’ll be expecting you to exhibit a ‘can do’ attitude, showing that you’re willing to help out the team and work on ad-hoc projects as required by the agency. You’ll always be calm under pressure and will show a sense of responsibility in everything you’re asked to take on.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a great team on a couple of creative and ‘fun’ accounts – apply today!
