Introduction

What is Footballco?

Footballco is the world’s biggest dedicated football content and media business. Reaching more than 400m football fans across the world each month, and with a growing roster of brands including Goal, Voetbalzone, and Spox, no one else has our reach or depth of understanding within the game. With over 300 employees globally, we’re a young company with some established brands and serious investment behind us. Our future starts now…


what's the role about?

If you’re obsessed with football and internet culture, and have an innate grasp of what social audiences want to see, we have a job for you.

Footballco is looking for a top-class Social Media Editor to join our English-language team. You will create and publish posts for our NXGN accounts. You’ll have the opportunity to shape the brand and grow a community across platforms.

NXGN is a platform that celebrates young footballers but also looks to engage with issues beyond the 90 minutes. You will be a storyteller at heart and play a role in highlighting important subjects both in and around the game.

We need you to drive growth, engagement and video performance across our channels, and you will have a global network of writers, video producers and creators whose work will fuel you in this mission.

You will demonstrate your ability to produce exciting and engaging social content, with a data-driven approach to measuring success, but formal experience in a social media publishing role is not mandatory. We offer competitive compensation and a bonus scheme. You will be part of our UK-based social team, and report to the Head of Social Publishing.


HERE’S A BREAKDOWN OF WHAT YOU’LL DO (NOT ALL OF IT, JUST THE MOST IMPORTANT STUFF)
  • Create and publish posts on platforms including Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Tiktok and Twitch

  • Create and edit to-camera video content for TikTok and Instagram

  • Run our accounts during the biggest football moments, including evenings and weekends

  • Collaborate with our written and video teams to ensure their output finds the biggest social audience

  • Connect with audiences while maintaining a positive and professional tone of voice

  • Work effectively with social teams around the world to ensure the best content is shared globally

  • Plug into our feedback loop to identify the content our audience loves

  • Monitor social trends and opportunities within football media and beyond

  • Proactively suggest innovations in our social strategy


DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS? 
  • Proven track record growing social accounts with high-quality, engaging content

  • Strong ability using TikTok and Instagram

  • Experience on video and streaming platforms including Tiktok, YouTube and Twitch especially desirable

  • Obsession with social media; deep understanding of what people want to share

  • In-depth knowledge of the digital and social media landscapes

  • Innate understanding of analytics and data as performance benchmarks

  • Familiarity with basic photo editing

  • Publisher or news media experience a plus

  • Finally, this job is focused on football media, so it helps if you have a love for football culture on and off the pitch – apparel, fan culture, music, gaming…
