Down at the Social

Apply for this job

Contract Type:

Down at the Social is an award-winning PR and social media consultancy based at Old Granada Studios in Manchester. We deliver campaigns for clients in food and drink, leisure and destination, restaurants and bars and professional services – we’re even launching a yoga festival right here in Manchester.

In the last five months we’ve created a social campaign for Kaplan using dancing accountants to make financial apprenticeships sexy whilst also planning the launch of a restaurant with a Masterchef winner – so every day is very different!

Plus earlier this year we launched SocialLite, our bite sized campaign offering which enables clients to dip their toe in before committing to a 12 month contract, which is proving popular with Manchester’s small businesses.

So we’re recruiting for skilled PR and social media pros to join our team.

What we’re looking for?
Proven passion and skills for one or both disciplines. Ideally we’d like to see some agency experience too. It doesn’t have to be in a PR environment – we just need to know that you can work within a team, nurture client relationships, be a trusted advisor and generally balance about twenty things at one time!

We’re a small team with a fast pace of life but we like to have fun. We have a pension scheme, ongoing training and personal development programme and we encourage flexibility in the working day.

We also have a strict vetting process which means we never take on clients who don’t fit our culture.

We plan to grow quickly this year so anyone who can bring a book of contacts and a desire to support this growth would be a bonus.

Skills we need you to have:
Working knowledge of social media channels and understanding of what makes them buzz
Love of all media – print, online and new
Contacts across the city with bloggers, writers, professional organisations etc
The ability to communicate on the phone and with written word
Ambition and passion for personal development
You don’t need to know everything but you do need to know how to find out!

Bonus skills:
Basic video filming and editing
Photoshop or other artwork production
We like it if you can drive a car
