WANTED: Junior Social Media Marketer

Would you consider yourself a Social Media Wiz? Do you know the difference between your hashtags and hashflags? If you do, then you might be the person that we’re looking for.

We need someone that can think outside the box and inside 140 characters (sometimes even less!). Someone that can switch between brand voices at the drop of a hat while keeping abreast of the latest social media developments – if Facebook has changed its algorithm again, we expect you to know!

As a member of our team, you will be working on multiple local and global brands with the opportunity to create epic campaigns as well as day to day content. If you’re to survive, you’ll need to be well-organized, strong in written communication, have the ability come up with creative ideas, and of course, love social media!
