Social Media Manager
About Red Setter
Red Setter is the PR agency for the world’s design pioneers. We amplify the voice and value of design to help the world’s most ambitious brand design agencies achieve the recognition they deserve, attracting business and talent, building their brands, and staying relevant in an ever-changing world.
Since 2012, we’ve built an expert team of 23 journalists, media specialists and PR strategists who share an unrivalled understanding of the brand design industry and the media. Whether it’s an opinion piece in US business title Fast Company, a profile in a national newspaper or a podcast interview with Chris Do, we’re dedicated to searching for – and shouting about – the stories that showcase our clients and their expertise.
We’re known worldwide as the experts in this space, and continue to grow steadily. As part of that growth, we’re now looking to develop our social media offering with the appointment of our first Social Media Manager. This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to really make their mark, growing a service, establishing a team, and transforming the way the world’s leading agencies use social media.
Initially you will work across 4-5 clients, taking the lead on the delivery and strategic development of their LinkedIn posting. Tasks will include:
- Creating weekly LinkedIn posts for each client
- Gaining client sign-off and gathering all assets
- Posting directly to feeds
- Creating reports on key metrics
- Delivering written and verbal updates to colleagues and clients
- Creating LinkedIn strategies that support the achievement of overall campaign objectives
- Developing tone of voice guides
- Planning content calendars
We will look to you as the in-house social media expert, keeping abreast of all developments, leading social media workshops for our team and our clients, and giving day-to-day guidance on what and how to post, comment, and interact.
But that is just the beginning. We want you to devise ways for us to build on our social media service, present recommendations to the leadership team, and then take the lead in making them happen.
How can we go beyond posting to look at community management?
How can we look beyond LinkedIn to other platforms?
How can we create more content than simply written?
There is vast scope for how we can develop what we do in this area, and we want you to come to us with ideas, talk with us to turn ideas into plans, and then turn those plans into action.
What we’re looking for
First and foremost, you will be a social media expert. You will be able to demonstrate a track record in developing social media strategies and delivering them. Ideally this will be in an agency and B2B context, but we’re open to people from in-house and consumer backgrounds.
As part of demonstrating that track record we’ll be looking for your abilities in:
- Developing strategies, content plans and tone of voice guides
- Technical expertise across all major platforms
- Writing and other content creation
Secondly, you will have strong people skills. This is a very much a client facing role so you will need to effectively communicate progress, plans and ideas both verbally and in writing. Furthermore, you’ll be working across all of the teams in our agency, playing a key role in their client campaigns. You’ll need to work well with colleagues, contributing your part, supporting them in theirs, and bringing both ideas and action to our agency.
Juggling multiple projects means adaptability is crucial. We work fast to stay ahead of the curve and don’t stop until our clients get the recognition they deserve, so the ability to work quickly and efficiently is key. We want plate spinners, able to discuss new ideas in new sectors with new people every day.
This is an important role in our agency and one we see as having major potential for growth. So, we want someone who is ambitious and able to develop.
Finally, everyone who works at Red Setter is passionate about brand design. Our level of expertise is matched only by the enthusiasm and excitement we have for our clients. We energise them to grow their brands and we love their businesses like they’re our own. So, we want people who sit forward and bring ideas. We want to make their day. If you can do that, we want to hear from you.
What we offer
The salary range for this role is £30-40k.
We love our bright, modern office in the heart of (sometimes) sunny Brighton, and while our whole team works flexibly, agreeing the right mix of in-office and remote working for them, the role of Social Media Manager is one that is predominantly in the office.
Officially certified as a Great Place to Work, we’ve created a culture where every team member has a voice and a clear role to play in the success of the company – as we know that the right people are the secret of our success.
Consistent training and feedback play a pivotal role at Red Setter, and from day one we’ll have in place a programme to immerse you in our sector of brand design. and bring you up to speed with the work we’re doing for our clients.
Beyond that induction, you’ll join our weekly Red Setter sessions where in-house and external experts train us on a wide range of topics – recent sessions include presenting skills, giving and receiving feedback, and what podcast hosts look for in a guest. You will have twice-yearly performance and development reviews and always have in place a development plan so you’re growing your skills and progressing your career.
Everyone has a monthly personal wellness and wellbeing budget which they can spend on the HEKA platform. We have a company pension scheme, a 25-day a year holiday allowance, and the day off on your birthday.
We also have frequent social events – from after-work drinks on the beach to an annual overseas trip – Berlin in 2018, Madrid in 2019, and most recently Porto in 2022 – and there’s a fun, happy and friendly vibe in the office.
