In this role you will work closely with account managers and a range of other industry specialists, both in person and online. This is a role highly suited to individuals with a proven track record in social media management and who aspire to grow their career within a digital agency environment.

As a self driven and efficient individual, you will need to be able to juggle many tasks and projects at once. Over 30 hours per week, you will split your time between providing project support to account managers, and managing social media channels on behalf of clients.

You will be responsible for incoming sales enquiries - qualifying client needs, and adding sales opportunities to the company CRM, ready for an account manager to take over.

You will support x4 project managers (x2 in Newcastle and x2 on the Sunshine Coast virtually) and be a team player with the rest of the staff, on a daily basis with their high workloads by assisting them to mobilise projects, chase clients for outstanding decisions or items, confirming appointments, scheduling or re-scheduling appointments and generally anticipating the needs of both clients and the team, whilst ensuring a high level of customer service is consistently delivered.

You will also assist with company recruitment drives, operational systems/procedures, record keeping, keeping the company portfolio up to date, orchestrating promotional offers etc as requested.

In addition to the project support side of the role, you will also have demonstrated experience with social media management for a range of brands and on a wide range of social platforms, who can adopt the right tone of voice, create relevant and impactful content, source and create appropriate imagery, and who can be a key member of our team to help our clients develop and implement the right social strategy to achieve business outcomes.

You must have a proven track record/portfolio to demonstrate your social media prowess and be able to prove you understand how social media posting and PR interacts with other marketing activities. We are a fast paced company and you will be expected to hit the ground running.

Individuals with strong long form writing skills and experience with PR / copy writing would also be highly regarded to assist with internal and client PR and integrated marketing projects. Existing media contacts are also desirable but not essential.

This is a fast paced and multi-faceted role which requires good organisational, time management and prioritising skills, ability to adhere to client budgets and pre-defined briefs and an ability to cope under pressure. You should have high energy and passion for the role, a commitment to delivering excellence and a hunger to prove yourself. You will be prepared to become intimately familiar with our current systems, processes and procedures and be entrepreneurial and commercial in your thinking.
