Creative - Born Social
Born Social are one of the UK’s leading social media agencies. We help Davids (not Goliaths) with social media management, strategy and advertising.
We’re looking for Creatives in London who we can add to our talented team, with excellent design skills and an eye for great social content. You will work closely with the account teams to deliver creative output that is not only entertaining, compelling and engaging but also aligns closely with the key social and business objectives of our clients.
Our Creatives are crucial – their work is the culmination of the hard graft put in by every member of the agency, as well as being the visual representation of everything we aspire to. All in all, it’s a pretty demanding, fast-paced but extremely rewarding position.
Sound good so far? Awesome! Now, let's really get stuck in.
- Creating and curating compelling pieces of content for clients and working on bigger campaigns created around the client's core business objectives.
- Have an understanding of good creative. Sometimes the most beautifully designed pieces of content could get lost if they're targeting the wrong audience. Good creative doesn't necessarily mean how good it looks, but rather how effective it is.
- Working closely with the wider account team (Account Manager, Community Manager and Advertising Manager) on strategy and ideation. From the number of posts we create, campaign brainstorming, adverts, reactive content and more, Creatives need to be on the pulse of everything social media related and know what is best for the client.
- You will need to live and breathe social media and have a real passion for all things digital. An understanding of what makes awesome social content and an obsession with creating it is essential.
- Being devoted to creativity and strategy. A love for brands and a natural ability to be creatively clever is imperative. Design knowledge (basically, you need to be able to use Photoshop) and Photography skills are essential.
- If you like getting stuck in and consider yourself multi-faceted, this is the role for you. Our creative team do a little bit of everything (and by everything we mean graphic design, video, photography, copywriting, strategy, animation and so on). No two days are ever the same.
- Organisation. Working on a wide range of clients spanning a variety of industries, time and task management are a vital part of the role.
- Flexibility is key. Born Social is a fast-paced and incredible environment to be in. When we're not doing photoshoots in-house, Creatives are often seen heading out to client events and doing the odd behind-the-scenes Instagram story.
- Using initiative and common sense! As well as following your team lead, you will be able and willing to think on your feet, take responsibility and identify new areas and opportunities which we can collectively exploit—internally and externally.
- Culture is one of our biggest assets, and we take pride in hiring incredibly talented and awesome people. You will need to be able to work as part of a team, to think rationally and bring the best out of those around you. Teamwork makes the dream work, and all that jazz.
- An awesome team - a great culture is hugely importance to us!
- A huge emphasis on personal and professional development
- Great responsibility from Day 1 - the opportunity to make a real difference
- Free mental health support (via Sanctus: https://sanctus.io/)
- Flexible working
- Unlimited paid holiday scheme (yes... we mean this!)
