Our international client, a web-hosting and ISP company, with its Head Offices in Cape Town currently seeks to appoint a Social Media Specialist who will be responsible for planning and implementing their social media engagement in support of their content marketing strategy to increase brand awareness and drive traffic to their website(s).

  • Grow the brand’s social presence and maintain these online communities, which will include identifying key influencers as well as responding to queries in a timely manner, escalating complaints or concerns to the contact centre team where relevant.

  • Track and analyse overall social and content performance, suggesting recommendations to adjust the social media marketing strategy for optimal results. Compile a bi-annual content and community management strategy review.

  • Keep an eye on the competitor landscape, highlighting new opportunities for the team to explore from a content and partnership point of view
  • Work closely with the marketing team on campaigns from conception to implementation
  • Help to deliver a consistent brand experience across all platforms
