We are looking for a Social Media Manager to create and maintain a strong online presence for our company as well as for our social media management (SMM) clients. They will implement online marketing through social media in an effort to complete sales, announce company updates, and increase brand awareness. Additionally, this individual will understand the target audiences and create appropriate strategies, including regular, tailor-made content, to reach the correct demographic.
We are proud to work with a range of SMM clients, from individuals to global SMEs. Because of this, there is an excellent opportunity to have a varied role and a need for adaptability. Ultimately, our clients are looking for someone who can manage their accounts, come up with creative ideas and not be afraid to think outside the box (as long as it reflects their brand and core beliefs).
Additionally, Beyond Co. continues to expand, and we need someone who is enthusiastic and is able to really own this domain to help the continued growth of our agency. We already have a vision, ideas and content lined up, and the individual will help us execute this more efficiently. We do, however, encourage the person in this role to challenge our ideas and make suggestions along the way.

- Create engaging captions with supportive images and video content.
- Monitor web and social media traffic and analytics, then use that data to make business decisions, namely around further actions on Socials.
- Develop an optimal posting schedule catered to each specific business.

- Strong communication, multitasking and analytical skills.
- A visual, creative-thinker who is able to put that creativity into action.
