Mid-weight Social Media Manager

12 April 2019. Posted in by

Our Agency is a team focussed on the creation, distribution and evaluation of content across many platforms. We offer a range of techniques, tools and specialist services to help our clients achieve success through an integrated marketing strategy. Our agency is ideas-led. Creativity is crucial. Owning that creative thought; that strategy; that one thing that puts us in the driving seat of a campaign is an essential goal for every project we undertake. No matter what your specific role within the team, the expectation is that you will be able to contribute to developing, shaping or implementing that core creative idea. You have your own specialist skill set, your own area of knowledge – yet you must always aim to push the boundaries of that specialism to help us create an integrated approach to creative strategies and implementation. That means, even in your role with your specific job spec, you must embrace the opportunity to blur the lines between what you do and what your colleagues do in other areas of the team.
