  • Celebrating the achievements of individuals and teams across all social/online channels
  • Documenting company social events, reward trips, sporting and/or charity events that the business may be involved in or supporting.
  • Monitoring and reporting on social media engagement measurables and competitor activity
  • Assisting consultants’ penetration of new verticals with market-specific content and collateral

  • Strong creative flair and a bold approach to defining and communicating what sets us apart as a business.
  • A thorough knowledge of social media marketing principles and strategies.
  • Outstanding writing, spelling, and grammatical abilities
  • Knowledge of the technical requirements of social platforms in relation to content compatibility (format, aspect, size, length, duration, etc)
  • Previous experience of working with LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram
  • An open-minded approach to expanding the company’s reach to newer channels such as TikTok, Snapchat, etc.
  • Strong graphic design skills (Canva, PowerPoint, Adobe etc) and experience of video / multimedia content creation

  • An understanding of SEO principles to optimize website traffic and ranking performance.
  • Strong project management skills and self-sufficiency to prioritize and plan workload.
