  • Have completed a degree in marketing, advertising, communications or digital media.
  • Worked in a similar social media role for a large and complex organisation.
  • Implemented social media plans across various segments, markets and platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. Experience with TikTok, Snapchat, Weibo and WeChat is a plus.

  • Have developed content for a range of audiences and channels.
  • Have demonstrated experience in aligning audience needs and preferences with marketing and communications strategies and objectives.
  • Are up to date with the latest trends in data and technology to help improve the process and performance of social media activity.
