From captivating copy and insightful concepts you’ll be well versed in producing stand out content calendars for brand channels which drive reach and resonance with target audiences
  • Co-ordinate static and motion content creation working with Splendid’s in-house studio and appropriate freelancers where required. You’ll also plan and execute photo shoots that reflect accurately brand guidelines.
  • Oversee community management for client social channels, ensuring brand TOV is consistent and impactful and crisis and issues are escalated and managed effectively
  • Own influencer campaigns from start to finish, from identifying the perfect partners to negotiating the terms, facilitating content creation and approvals, and providing detailed performance reports.
  • Develop robust campaign plans, complete with accurate budgets and scopes of work.
  • Cultivate relationships with third-party suppliers, managing external production and edit briefs where relevant
  • Plan and execute paid social media ad campaigns using Meta Business manager, optimising to deliver best ROI.
