Full Time

We’re looking for a creative and strategic social media specialist to join a rapidly growing litigation powerhouse with offices across both London and New York. Having grown 6-fold in the past 3 years, and further plans to double office headcount in the next two years; this is a new hire and great opportunity to work directly with senior leadership, advising the firm on their social media strategy and presence.

The Role:
• Work directly with the firms COO to advise on and define a social media and broader digital strategy, aligning such to the firm’s ambitious growth plans.
• Take ownership of all social media and online channels, from LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+ through to the firm wide blog and online content, taking ownership of training and best practice.
• Be the firm’s social media champion, constantly guiding partners and fee earners on industry trends and relevant content to position the firm ahead of the curve and maintain their reputation as a unique entity in the legal sector.
• Help advise on SEO and content strategy to make sure the firm is being seen across the right channels.

What we’re looking for:

This role would ideally suit someone from a creative background, and equally a candidate that is keen to work in both a hands on and advisory/strategic remit.

The firm itself is positioning them as a market leader, and where as professional services experience isn’t necessarily a prerequisite, an ability to showcase creativity and innovation is key. Experience gained in agency and in-house both welcome. Strong academics or a proven record of academic development is critical.

What’s on offer:

An opportunity to join a unique firm genuinely pushing boundaries in terms of how they go to market, and equally work for a client base unlike any other law firm. Although expanding rapidly, they still maintain a start-up feel with a great and modern office location and exciting culture.
