One of the biggest and best PR consultancies in the region is on the hunt for a Social Media Account Director to join their award-winning social media team.

The role:

This full-service agency boasts a portfolio of high profile social clients across both consumer and B2B sectors, and needs a talented Social Media Account Director to deliver highly engaging content and campaigns, primarily for an automotive client. Reporting to the Social Media Director, you will be working on high impact campaigns with significant budgets, managing the day-to-day delivery of fantastic content, engagement, and reach across the core social channels, and will be given the opportunity to truly own the projects. You'll also be responsible for overseeing community management, and for financial control and budgeting for a client portfolio.

What we're looking for:

The ideal candidate must, first of all, have exceptional social media skills: an up-to-date understanding of social media marketing, an inquisitive approach to new developments in the industry, a firm understanding of social media communications strategy, a solid grasp of social measurement and tracking, and experience of managing day-to-day social media accounts for clients. Given that you'll be working with an automotive client, an interest or experience in the automotive sector would be an advantage. You will need experience of client servicing, account management, and developing client and new business proposals, and, while you certainly don't need design skills in abundance, a basic understanding of design principles would be helpful. On top of this, you should have excellent organisation, planning, ideation, and client handling skills - as well as ambition to flourish and grow.

What's on offer:

This is a truly fantastic agency that offers excellent opportunities to develop your skills and career even further, as well as a salary of up to £45,000 and a range of benefits including generous holidays, free parking, childcare vouchers, and many, many more (trust us!). So if you have all the required experience and this looks like the role you've been waiting for, don't hesitate - apply now!
