Job Role: Communications Manager
Naturally Social is a social-first communications agency with a difference. Shaping what we do is our strong sense of purpose and our passion for people. Our success is measured by our impact, both in terms of the results we deliver for our clients, and our impact on the individuals, communities and society around us. Due to continued growth, we’re looking for a new Communications Manager to play a key role in our future development; managing both in house and client side communication needs.
Whilst social-media led, we provide a holistic marketing service, working as a team, sharing expertise to generate creative, impactful multi-channel campaigns that build brand awareness. We support a wide variety of clients, including private and public-sector organisations and charities, from small owner-managed firms to larger businesses. Therefore, to be successful in this new role, you will have a track record using your creative flair to develop attention grabbing content for a wide variety of industry sectors, adapting your tone and approach to different audiences.
Whether you are a marketing generalist, PR specialist or content marketer, you will have experience of integrating social media into your communications campaigns. We value the different expertise that each communications manager brings to the team. You may be a well-connected PR Manager or a content marketer with experience using WordPress, Joomla and video production. Our shared approach means you will get involved in different aspects of the business, taking on a diverse mix of clients and projects, thereby expanding your own knowledge and skillset.
Our team members thrive on communicating! We want you to help us put the “social” back into social media, focusing on starting conversations and building connections between people and communities, rather than automating activity. As well as creating engaging content, you’ll also have the opportunity to engage with existing and prospective customers through attending meetings, networking events and conferences. Your confident, friendly personality and inclusive approach will help you to connect with people from a variety of backgrounds. Building effective long-term relationships with your portfolio of clients will enable you to maximise repeat business and work at a more strategic level with organisations on their longer-term marketing plans.
You will also ideally have experience of supervising others, having worked in either a team leader or management role. You will need the ability to inspire and develop junior team members, as well as supervising freelance professionals to deliver work on time to the required standards.
2017 was an exceptional year for Naturally Social. We were finalists at the Wiltshire and Swindon Business Awards, selected to be on the #Smallbiz100 list and joined Entrepreneurial Spark in Bristol. We also gave back by providing two summer internships to help young people kick start their careers, as well as gifting our services to a local charity combatting loneliness. 2018 promises to be no less exciting! If you share our business ethics and passion and have relevant experience and qualifications, make your next career move with Naturally Social!
