Our client is currently looking for a Social Media Executive - Football Betting to join their busy team!

Salary: £21,000-£24,000 Basic, plus Commission (OTE £35k)

Social Media Executive Duties:

You'll be working within a small team helping to deliver outstanding quality content across the social media channels, including but not limited to, football betting tips, topical football news, football analysis and opinion

  • Assisting in planning social media content on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
  • An ongoing analysis of social media content to identify new opportunities and to optimise existing methods and tactics
  • Participating in creativity meetings, always bringing a new idea to the table with no fear of it being rejected. If you don't test new ideas, you'll never know. Innovation is one of the key values

  • Enthusiastic and a genuine passion for football betting
  • Professional or voluntary experience operating social media profiles: specifically Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

  • Strong work ethic and attention to detail: not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get the job done in the finest way, without cutting corners
  • Understanding the importance of effective copywriting: grasping the brand tone and audience to deliver valuable, relevant and consistent content
