  • Use a variety of platforms such as Hootsuite, WordPress, Google Analytics


There will be a lot of on-the-job learning with full support from our Head of Social.

  • Proficiency in MS Office (Excel, PowerPoint, and Word in particular)
  • Excellent time management skills and the ability to prioritise work
  • Attention to detail and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong organisational skills with the ability to multi-task
