Since we started in 2011 we’ve always worked on an ‘associate’ model, bringing in talented contractors to support us on projects as we grow.

  • Some copywriting for ‘owned’ channels’ e.g. blogs, news pages
  • Managing production and delivery of visual assets (working with agency and/or in-house design and production team) across social channels and internal news/blog channels
  • Identifying key influencers and planning/delivering outreach to generate engagement and traffic
  • Referring community management, moderation to customer-service channels as appropriate

  • Working as your own project manager for bespoke projects to ensure timely delivery with excellent communication
  • Reporting and Evaluation of activity on a daily/weekly/monthly basis

The candidate will have demonstrable experience in:

  • Presenting reports demonstrating activities against KPIs, using a mix of free and paid-for tools
