Community Manager

25th January 2021

Job title: Community Manager

Location: Remote + London, SE1

Type: Permanent

Reporting to: Head of Strategy

About the role

Mediablaze is looking for a Community Manager to join our team. Our ideal candidate has exceptional oral and written communication skills and is able to adapt to a brand’s tone of voice on their social media platforms.

Ultimately, you will be your clients’ voice of their brand and manage all community communications. You’ll be the main point of contact for their customers whilst also getting involved with social media management tasks such as content planning and creation, scheduling and insight reporting.

You must be a social platform obsessive and a clever copywriter. You will have an impressive understanding of social media and the value it can offer our brands. You will be required to be on top of social trends and to have an eye for creative content both written and visual. It is vital that you understand the nuances of social media formats; if you know your IGTVs from your Reels, this job is for you.

What it's like to work here

Skilled people in every role with the autonomy to do their best work is what has made Mediablaze successful and will support our growth plans.

We avoid egos and micromanagement in our teams and we don’t use seniority or job titles to squash the opinions of our colleagues. We collaborate across our teams and use our collective experiences to craft and engineer the best products to solve each client’s problems.

We’re backed by Hearst Publishing (one of the largest publishing organisations in the world) but we maintain our own autonomy and startup mindset. We balance the agility that provides with grown up processes and strategy to fuel our ambition to continue to grow the agency.

What we're offering and your wellbeing

Location (2021):
London (SE1) when we are able to return to the office, but home working until then. We provide a laptop and second screen (if needed).

Working Hours:
Our standard working hours (9.30am to 5.30pm) are staggered slightly to take the edge off the busiest commuting times.

Our flexi-time policy covers the hours 4pm-5.30pm which enables you to move that time to earlier or later in the day, or another day that week (subject to meetings and agreed deliverables).

Annual Leave:
25 days per annum, plus an additional day for each completed year with the agency (capped at 28 days in total).

You don’t work your birthday. That’s another day in the bag which could take your total annual leave to 29 days.

We have a company Ride to Work Scheme with an annual pot assigned. It's healthy enough for even seasoned cycling aficionados (of which we have a few already).

Home Set Up:
Home Office Equipment Scheme (same principle as Ride to Work) to enable you to create a comfortable and safe home working environment.

Standard company pension which is easily moved around should you wish.
