The main function of this position is to provide Community Management coverage for all of our social media profiles across all of our schools, worldwide.

  • Understand both our organic social strategy and our social paid advertising funnel, in order to suggest content or copy ideas that will resonate with our audience and increase engagement (more likes, comments & shares) across all organic and paid posts.
  • Support the Social Media Manager in developing and maintaining social content calendars and plans, helping streamline our new social content production process.
  • Stay current: follow the latest trends in social media to ensure we’re communicating in a relevant way with our target audience (e.g. you know what ‘OK boomer’ means).
