Digital Analyst, Corporate Communications, London, Corporate
c £28,000 (REF. ZH509738)

This leading communications and reputation management firm stands out in the market for its expertise and its integrated offer. They advise companies on building, and maintaining, their reputation within the business world as well as with internal, political and consumer audiences. Their Analyst team is looking for a digital specialist to bolster their offering in social media listening and analysis. Key skills this team is looking for include research and analysis, problem-solving, excellent project management, and the ability to succinctly draw out and articulate key messages. Due to the nature of this consultancy’s clients, a familiarity with financial statements, company announcements and general corporate reporting would be a definite asset, but not essential. In addition to this, you’ll have a strong knowledge of social media tools (and how businesses use them) experience of using analytical and monitoring tools such as Brandwatch, Onalytica and Traackr – as well as an understanding of other, more traditional research tools such as Bloomberg or Factiva. If you are a confident communicator with the ability to present and discuss projects and findings with partners and directors, why not consider joining the foremost specialist consultancy in the strategic space?

Digital Executive, Paid Social + Content, London, Digital
£22,000 – £28,000 (REF. ZH509606)

Two of the most sought-after Digital Directors decided to launch their own agency and their success has been phenomenal. Word of mouth has spread and new business has flooded in, to the point that they are now looking to hire their first “juniors”. To use the word “junior” is somewhat misleading as they aren’t looking for support staff; instead, they are looking for ambitious and social-strategy-savvy Executives hungry for their “share of the action”. Having decided to go down the management consultancy format, the two founders are looking for juniors who have the digital understanding necessary to getting under the skin of a new client, and the gravitas and confidence to advise these clients on who best to achieve their goals through digital strategy. This isn’t a role for wall flowers. You’ll be tenacious and brimming with ideas but also socially connected and curious about trends and aware of developments in the paid social scene. You’ll be a good listener and a problem solver; someone who will eat market research for breakfast in order to bring fresh insight to the table at brainstorms. This is unmistakeably one of the best opportunities of this year to work with two digital heavy-weights whose campaigns have impacted our day-to-day lives over the last few years. Don’t miss this chance to be their next protégés.
