Thanks for all the interest but we’ve now filled this position. Keep an eye the site, as you never know what’s round the corner.

We’ve won several new clients who need social media marketing support and so we want to add a Social Media / Digital PR Manager to our team.

We’re looking for someone with:

  • 3 or 4 years social media marketing experience, ideally gained in a social media / community manager role or within a digital / social media agency
  • an in-depth knowledge of devising and implementing online and social media marketing campaigns spanning Twitter, Facebook, geolocation platforms and blogger outreach
  • great writing skills – capable of producing copy for blogs and content for websites
  • experience of planning and implementing social media campaigns
  • an understanding of social media tools: hoot suite, buffer and tracking / monitoring tools
  • an understanding of Search Engine Optimisation
  • a knowledge of PPC / adword campaigns
  • basic web development skills / knowledge of PHP would be an advantage
  • great interpersonal skills – someone who can explain complex technologies and approaches clearly and concisely – and is as social in real life as they are in the virtual world

If this sounds like you, and you’re looking for a new challenge, then dust off your CV and attach it to an email giving us an overview of your most recent successes and why it’s time for a new adventure.

We’re busy! Really busy! We need someone to come in and help us out. So, if you’re looking for a short-term paid placement, an internship as they say, and would like to have a month’s experience of life at Lava to put on your CV then get in touch.

Ideally, we need someone who has already spent some time in a PR, social media or marketing agency as they’ll be delivering integrated communications campaigns for our broad range of clients.

If you’re hard working, have a good sense of humour and a can-do attitude, plus experience of copywriting and delivering PR activity then we want to hear from you before the end of January as we need to grow an extra pair of hands sharpish (before someone jets off to South Africa to tie the knot in fact!)

Lava receives lots of applications from people looking to land their first job, and many of them are good, but it takes a very special application to stand out from a pile of dozens, or even hundreds. So what can job hunters do to stand out from the crowd?
