Social Media Manager / Content Creator
As a member of our team, you will build relationships with our clients, create content that helps tell their story, and distribute that content over social media channels. You will also manage client social media accounts, interacting with fans and followers on their behalf.
You must have a journalism degree or equivalent work experience, be comfortable with the major social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.) and possess a basic understanding of social media marketing best practices.
It is important that you enjoy research and writing, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Skill/interest in video, photography or graphic design is considered a plus.
This is a full-time, salaried position.
If managing social media accounts for clients was as easy as posting on Facebook, anyone could do it. But what we do is a lot more than posting. We create all our own content: we must constantly think about what will be interesting to our audience, how we will add value and keep them coming back. Then we’ll do it all again tomorrow. If you have big ideas, are willing to take risks, and want a job where you can be innovative and try new things, KWSM could be a very good fit.
We tell stories for a living. That involves engaging and communicating with an audience on social media, but it also requires the ability to communicate well with our clients, and each other. We’re a small company, and you will have a lot of opportunity to add your feedback. We need someone who wants to be heard.
We have a very collaborative office, and want to work with people who want to be part of a team. If you’re the kind of person who likes the door to their office closed, you probably won’t be happy here. (Our offices don’t actually have doors.)
Yes, we work online. But in order to accurately tell our clients’ stories on social media, we have to get to know them offline, too. A large part of your job will be building relationships with clients and acting as their advocate. We work hard for our clients, but we like to socialize with them, too.
We want to work with people who are passionate. If you have the ability to get excited about something and throw yourself into it, you will fit in well here.
