Social Media Jobs

The rise of social networking sites over the past decade has opened up a range of job possibilities that have never really existed before. The opportunities in social media vary greatly, from blogging to social strategy and customer engagement. In fact this niche of online marketing is still in its infancy and it is set to flourish into what is predicted as a very desirable sector. Our range of clients require both entry level and experienced applicants so if you're looking for a change of job, we can help you find a position to suit your level of knowledge and experience.

Here at The Candidate we are dedicated to finding candidates like you your perfect role in social media with a company where they will thrive. To date we have advertised and successfully placed candidates in roles such as:

  • Social Media Analyst
  • Social Media Specialist
  • Content Writer
  • Social Media Coordinator
  • Digital/Online Marketing Manager

As social marketing continues to evolve, clients continue to attempt to place exactly where it sits within their marketing plans. Is it within a direct response acquisition channel, complimenting SEO strategy in an organic environment or does it fall within engagement, branding and ultimately PR? Clients and agencies are split, largely depending on its purpose, but they are all agreed that it is now more than just buying ads on Facebook but an integrated strategy across the emerging range of social platforms.

The type of skills needed for social media roles vary depending on the element sought but copywriting and creativity are high on the scale of requirements. However if you know your "likes" from your "endorsements" and your "+1's" from your "favorites" then you're probably half way there! Good preparation for candidates is to research the wealth of social activity examples that exist and look at the impressive case studies which cover a range of both stand alone social strategies to integrated masterpieces.

If you are interested in a new career in Social Media, or developing your existing role, submit your details to us here. From there we will endeavor to arrange a meeting to learn more about your social skill set and personality so we can reliably inform our clients of your experience and future objectives.
