Slowey McManus Communications (SMC) is looking for a Digital Media Coordinator to join our Digital team. If you think you could be a good fit for this role based on the description below, we would love to hear from you.
SMC is a communications firm working to capture attention for our clients in the traditional media and digital media universe to help advance their business and organizational objectives. We are a seasoned team of strategists and storytellers, advocates and advisors. We create and execute holistic communications strategies that help our clients elevate their voices amid the noise, achieve their highest goals and maximize their impact. We serve a diverse client base across multiple sectors, including education, green energy, life sciences, healthcare, nonprofit, public policy, corporate and retail.
In today’s fast-paced, crowded world of global communications, it takes creative talent and deep industry knowledge to cut through the clutter and keep pace with online news outlets and social media platforms, as well as the changes in newspapers, magazines, TV & radio. This is where SMC comes in and where we hope you will work to help us achieve the best possible results for our clients. As a Coordinator on our Digital team, you will be expected to excel in the following areas:
Content Creation & Graphic Development
You’ll be doing everything from graphic development for social media to website content to social media scheduling. We’ll give you guidelines for what we are looking for and expect you to take it from there and be creative. We are looking for someone with an eye for graphic design who can, with instruction, create enticing graphic content and campaign graphics for our clients.
Social Media Scheduling
We manage quite a few social media accounts for our clients and this arm of the business is only growing. We will need someone who is on top of social media posting and scheduling using a social posting tool and posting on the sites themselves. In this fast paced environment we will also need someone who can take on and own unanticipated tasks from start to finish.
Social & Digital Research
It is more important than ever to be on top of what is happening on social media. Our clients rely on us to be aware of what is being said about them on social and to always be developing content that is current. We will rely on you to do the research and advise us to ensure we are always on trend, up to date, and aware of the conversations happening in our clients’ industry.
At SMC we will expect you to be a self-starter but you will always have a great team at your back to learn from and bounce ideas off. From top to bottom you will get the chance to work with everyone in our firm and we hope you will get to know and love us. Employees at SMC enjoy health and dental insurance, 401(k), paid time off and a host of other great perks.
