What you’ll do:  

You’ll live at the intersection of media, creative, analytics, social, and content.

  • Sourcing, planning and executing social and content programs 
  • Managing the briefing of global creative within social channels and developing toolkits for regional teams to execute
  • Helping create and execute influencer strategies
  • Developing thought leadership pieces and other editorial material
  • Keeping a firm pulse on pop culture, entertainment events and other opportunities for our clients to make waves in social
  • Building strong relationships with third party content providers and websites

 

We’re looking for incredible strategic mind with strong social experience, including:

  • 5 to 9 years of social experience in advertising, entertainment, newsroom or content fields—if you also have PR or publishing experience, even better
  • Experience developing brand strategies at a regional or global level
  • A strong understanding of media planning, distribution and content syndication
  • Expertise with innovative, entertainment-based social media programs
  • Experience living in the social media universe—you’re in-the-know on all social platforms, and can identify trends in social media across countries and cultures
  • Excellent research and writing skills—and the ability to create smart content quickly (please include links to examples of your work in your application)
  • The ability to develop strong relationships with internal and external partners
  • A nose for new technology, new content solutions, social media events and developments—plus a strong connection with entertainment and pop culture
  • An ear for consumer insights—you get what makes people tick
  • The ability to back up great creative ideas with sound analytical reasoning
  • Willingness to travel—you’re open to new places, new faces and new ideas
