There are 50+ people based across our Belfast & London offices, including content creators, digital designers, media strategists, digital experts and more. As part of our integrated service, our social media team is crucial for connecting people with our clients’ brands.

Job Description

We are looking for a talented Social Media Manager with a passion for connecting brands and customers. You will develop and execute campaigns that are entirely strategic, fuelled by creativity, led by customer insight and data. Through a focus on both short-term execution and long-term strategy, you will thrive on showing clients the power of social media to develop their business and delight their customers.

Core to this role is leading both internal and external stakeholders through each life stage of a social campaign. Working closely with team members across media, performance, content and digital will mean day-to-day communication skills and speaking ability are key. As a strategic leader, bringing others along for the journey is also important.

The role will be very versatile as it involves multiple clients and industries, for example in Education, Energy, Tourism, Sport & Leisure and B2B.
