Social Media Manager

Australia Editorial

The role

We’re looking for a creative Social Media Manager to take ownership of social output for a number of global clients.

You will have a proven background (min. three years) in publishing or agency, and be comfortable concepting social ideas that get online communities fired up — particularly across Instagram, TikTok and LinkedIn.

You will be working directly with clients, leading always-on activity from ideation to execution across both consumer and corporate worlds. So you’ll be a calm and capable communicator with a solutions-focused mentality.

The accounts we’re hiring for span a range of sectors, from automotive to sports. So you’ll ideally have a versatile range, and be comfortable across multiple verticals.

As part of the Editorial team, you’ll stay on top of trends and move at the speed of internet culture. You see yourself as a strong solo worker, but also the ultimate team player. We’re hard workers, big thinkers, care about the small stuff and like to have fun.

The nature of We Are Social’s business requires a high level of flexibility and versatility. While the specific content of your role is clearly defined, the nature of the demands placed on us and the creativity of our campaigns means that the role will evolve over time and needs a ‘can do’ approach to picking projects up and making them happen.

We expect you to show confidence and competence in the key areas below:

  • A keen interest in cultural and social trends
  • A proven creative conceptor who’s confident in delivering planned and reactive assets, particularly across Instagram
  • Capable of delivering clean copy in the correct tone of voice, ensuring it’s on-brand and always on-time
  • Adept at finding the key insight/hook that will capture attention 
  • Able to craft an inspiring and clear deck (in Google Slides) to present work
  • Accountable for deadlines and thinking ahead, preempting any problems
  • Confident dealing with clients and being able to collaborate respectively
  • Be able to deal with feedback constructively and dispassionately
  • Strong social platform knowledge across the major platforms, while curious about new platforms and developments
  • Excellent communication, presentation and project management skills
  • Being calm under pressure and with the capacity to manage multiple projects simultaneously
  • Experience in organic (and ideally) paid social media
  • Manage, track, and report on performance, using learnings to optimize future creative opportunities
  • Ability to assess key learnings from campaigns and incorporate them into your next work
  • A knack for turning complex information or jargon into digestible consumer-friendly comms
