Job Description

We’re looking for a brilliant Social Content Creator!

Someone with strong experience in ideating and producing great creative across all social channels. OnBrand is a forward-thinking full-service marketing & business growth agency that wants to help businesses of all sizes achieve their goals. When we see an opportunity to grow our in-house team & expand the services we provide further, we take it.

Your role will be a mixture of working on new business pitches, existing clients, or our own social media channels (FB, Insta, TikTok, LinkedIn, Twitter). You will need to be able to shoot and edit social-first content, create scripts, come up with ideas and see the content all the way through to delivery. Skills in copywriting, design (Photoshop/Illustrator), motion graphics and sound design would be massive bonuses.

You’ll be able to think, ideate and execute ‘at the speed of culture’, devising and creating social-first content that audiences want to interact with, and helping build brands that people genuinely want to engage with. You’ll need to be in the know of all the latest trends, tricks and creators worth knowing about, and be passionate about working with a growing agency.

Whether it’s a quick and fun TikTok or Insta reel or a hardworking paid social piece, you would need to understand how to plan and make content that will stand out and grab attention.
Understanding cultures to quickly develop relevant and interesting ideas and executions for brands, considering the entire anatomy of a piece of social content (the format, the copy, the visual direction, the pace, the audio).

Day-to-day, the social content creator will work alongside our marketing team, be in touch with the social strategy, vibe of the agency, and our clients audiences. Our clients are a mix of b2b & b2c so you will have the opportunity of working on consumer channels as well as developing ideas for LinkedIn in equal measure. Content will be a mix of evergreen social content for content calendars, creative for PPC Campaigns, going to client sites to capture and tell their stories, and of course that of our own agency.
