Social Media jobs and careers

A career in social media marketing is broad and comprehensive. It can be based in-house, working directly for one brand, but is often agency based, meaning multi-channel management. This kind of marketing role is all about staying on top of industry trends and following a defined, targeted strategy that generates likes, shares, and gains positive engagement and attention from the follower base. This particular career path involves engaging with the right people, sharing relevant and original content and strategically recognising how each social channel works.
 
A key trend we’ve noticed in the social media space: there is a real blurring of lines where the role of a social media specialist starts and stops. The social media landscape changes and evolves at such a fast pace, means that the role and skills of every social media professional have to mirror this evolution.
 
Why consider a career in Social Media?
Social media management is a modern career and one that is essential to the majority of SMEs and brands. If you’re a creative communicator and have a flair for storytelling, a keen eye for design/imagery and enjoy measuring results, a career in social media marketing is incredibly popular, but it does take the right sort of person to master it.
 
What a career or job in Social Media may entail…
The role is fast-paced and includes the management of: relevant content topics, staying on top of industry trends, monitoring competitor channels regularly, reviewing and reporting which channels are providing results. You will curate, create and manage all published content, you will schedule posts, create posts in real time, use relevant imagery, hashtags and links to maximise upon your day-to-day engagement. Brand awareness will always be at the forefront of your mind and you will communicate clear and relevant messages on a consistent basis.
 
You will also monitor, listen and respond to users in a “social” way while cultivating leads and sales. Social media often blends with SEO and content marketing, so the role is often varied where no day is the same.
 
Typical role titles include
Social Media Assistant
Social Media Executive
Social Media Specialist
Social Media Strategist
Social Media Marketing Coordinator
Social Media Coordinator
Social Media Manager
Head of Social

Salary Benchmarks
At an entry level, junior/graduate Social Media Consultants on average will be earning between  £18k-£20k. At the mid-level you’d be looking to earn £25k-£35k and Seniors would be looking to earn £40k+.
 
Is it right for me? The skills it takes...
To succeed in a social media career, you will need to have a naturally creative mindset, with great copywriting skills and a backlog of ideas that you can organise into a strategy in order to make your social media platforms a success.
 
Strong digital copywriting skills remain central to the success within this space, but the social media landscape demands an increasingly diverse set of skills. From video production skills (think Periscope), the demand for more live-streamed content, to the data and insight skills demanded by the rise of social listening, audience segmentation and paid social advertising.
 
What qualifications does it take?
To work in social media, you will usually need a foundation degree, diploma or experience within a relevant subject. These can include communications, marketing, media, journalism, English, PR and creative writing.
