Creation of copy and other content for our clients’ social presences

Optimising strategy to maximize positive (and neutralise negative) conversation around our clients

Anything else that is required to make amazing things happen for our projects and our clients


Experience in being a positive, passionate and energetic person is 100% necessary

Somebody who dabbles in writing, might have done a bit of blogging, or even jotted their way through a journalism degree would be spot on

Previous experience (big or small!) of planning & managing social presences gets you an extra brownie point

Excellent organizational and time management skills never go amiss!

Ability to work under pressure whilst keeping an eye for details is the kind of skill we love

Proficiency in Microsoft Office, in particular PowerPoint and Excel

Proficiency in using a wide variety of social platforms (we see you, checking your Instagram 20 times a day!)

Excellent communication skills: we want you to be able to shine in front of everybody, from our big client stakeholders to the office DPD delivery driver

Proactive: self-motivated

Team-player: flexible and challenging

Fun to work with: spirited, willing to learn, willing to ask for help, willing to pipe up and share ideas and, of course, able to tell a good joke ;-)


Degree or equivalent experience (we welcome experience in all kinds of areas!)
