Skills for Social

From Coordinator to Strategist – Social Skills

Many young marketers enter social media thinking it’s easy. After all, they do it at home. The very best social media marketers are a clever blend of creative nous, conscientiousness and strategic thinking. 

We recently placed a Social Media Community Manager who we think is going to be a future Head of Social. It might take a few years, but here’s why we think that way…

Yes, she had a passion for social. Most marketers do. But she had a way with words, and a can-do attitude with plenty of learning under her belt. She spoke with confidence about her metrics and community growth, and she was always discovering new creative tools.

She met our high standards, because she has high standards. And this is what you should expect of every social media candidate, from coordinator through to director – the rare combination of diligence and creative daring that you need for such a public-facing role.

Our
Process

When you work with Example, you get access to our little black book of social media marketers. We’ll understand your brief & your growth plans, and reach out to the people we think will make the biggest difference – whether they’re seeking work or not. We’ll pitch them, manage the interview process & hopefully help you with the negotiation & offer process.

Screened
Candidates

When we talk about screening, we’re not just talking about a five-minute interview. We probe their experience, their motivations, their ambitions and we only ever send the candidates we feel will make the biggest difference – and that will be excited by the prospect of working with you.
