Social Media Strategist

The [email protected] team is looking for a Social Media Strategist to work

alongside a team of strategists, account managers, art directors, and senior

leaders in the successful development and execution of social strategies and

content for a large B2B and B2C client.

This position is an integral part of the Social@ team, and will

contribute strategic and creative thinking while managing the robust content

and editorial schedule of a key B2B/B2C client. The successful candidate will liaise

between the creative and strategy teams, oversee the development of creative

elements and ensure proper strategic execution, organize a number of moving

content pieces, and provide support to community manager. This person will also work closely across

internal departments – paid, brand, etc. - to ensure collaboration and

alignment.

Key skills for this position include the ability to work in

a fast paced, highly collaborative environment, an ever-present attention to

detail, the ability to shift and reprioritize quickly, promptly and effectively

problem solve, deliver results through ambiguity, the flexibility to engage

with differentiated inputs, and the ability to see the big picture and

demonstrate it using the numerous puzzle pieces of content and information. This

person needs to feel comfortable stepping into various roles – from community

management to campaign strategy – at any time to support all members of the

team.

There are many opportunities for the person in this role to

think creatively, at times unbounded and at other times within a strict set of

constraints. This role is perfect for someone who is looking to stretch his or

her capabilities and grow quickly.
