Social Media and Content Assistant
Are you a creative person with a background in visual design and enjoys using pictures to tell stories?
Do you know how to build audiences on major social platforms?
Are you the sort of person who is driven to produce high-quality work who will push yourself to continually get better at what you do?
Do you want to work with a values-led, start-up company with a clear mission to make a difference in the world?
If so, then perhaps you are the person we are looking for to join the team as our resident social media guru!
VetX International is a small, but growing business based in Brighton, committed to helping humans get along so workplaces thrive. We do this by providing education, recruitment and performance management services to our clients who are veterinarians.
Our mission is to become the leading provider of media, education and HR services to veterinarians and veterinary practices in the US, UK and Australia. To do this we will have 5000 active veterinarians and 500 active practices using our service to create thriving workplaces by 2025.
That’s a big goal and we are going to have to hustle, grow fast and innovate a lot to get there. But we are committed to making this a reality and need your help to achieve this. As a small company, there is a lot for everyone to do and your days will be exciting, varied and sometimes unpredictable. We are looking for people who are comfortable in a fast-paced, informal environment where there is great freedom in your day. So if you are someone who needs lots of structure and doesn’t like being pushed, challenged and cheered on, this might not be the best team for you to join. That said, we do have some important processes and deadlines for things like publishing, so we don’t want conjurers of chaos either!
We have strong values and run our entire company based on these things, so it is essential that you know what these are and share them. Here’s what they are:
- We do innovative work to change the world around us.
- We learn and grow our experience and skills because growth is the vehicle to better things.
- We are thoughtful and help others - team, customers, community and planet.
- We build fun into our work.
- We act with integrity so people trust us.
- We show up as team members and own our work and actions each day.
If any of these are not a good fit for you then no worries, you do you, but this probably isn’t the right opportunity. We really do hire, manage and fire to these values.
