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.
