Social Media Administrator

Job description

Home Based & No Travel Costs! Fully Experienced Social Media Administrator

Salary: £15-£17k per annum depending upon skills and experience.

We are a small emotional health charity, who were established in 2015 to support those affected by poor mental health and suicide, including those that are bereaved.  Our aim is to reduce the shame, stigma and silence surrounding these subjects and encourage free and open conversation.

SOS are looking for someone special to join our existing team of employees, volunteers, ambassadors & Trustees, all of whom work closely together in the best interests of the people we seek to support.

We need a fully experienced social media administrator who can identify opportunities to expand our reach and visibility and develop our social engagement, through the use of relevant, engaging and creative content, including the use of audio visual materials.

We need someone who’s dynamic, creative, who knows how to drive visibility, to create engaging posts, to use data in an informative and interesting way and most of all, who is proactive and can think outside the box.

This is a great opportunity for someone who works well in a small team, can think outside the box and, through data analytics, optimise the visibility of our Charity and the engagement with our posts and content.

You should be fully aware of the differences, pros and cons of each of the platforms we operate across, in order to fully maximise the opportunities they each offer.

You will work with other members of our small, friendly, team, including our Volunteer Manager & Training Co-Ordinator, in order to exchange and receive relevant content information.

You must be fully proficient in Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and Instagram and should have experience in Hootsuite and/or other multi posting platforms and image creation apps, as well as basic video editing skills to produce exciting content. If you have knowledge of WordPress websites and posting content from sites with Blog2Social, this would be useful, but not essential.

You will also be tasked with downloading monthly analytics that show growth, recession, or stagnation and analysing your own data/content to find content that under performs.  You will also measure engagement on a weekly basis across all platforms.

There are many days in the mental health calendar throughout the year, and our posts need to reflect these days.

You must have an interest and awareness of poor mental health and the impact upon individuals and society, and the passion to make a difference in line with our values and core aims.

This is a home based opportunity and is fixed term for 1 year initially.  You will be working 9am-5pm Monday to Friday.

Applicants should note that part of the interview process will involve the creation of posts across multiple platforms.
