  • Unlocking new business opportunities and relationships for FH by contributing social and digital thinking to pitches, both at prep stage and ‘in the room’
  • Championing social and digital innovation within the agency by sharing knowledge and inspiration from the wider industry landscape

You’ll be involved in creating and maintaining a strong online presence for brands through social media platforms such as Instagram, Instagram Stories, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn etc.


Your day to day:

  • Day-to-day community management of brands social media accounts including posting social content, monitoring the conversation, responding to queries and looking for reactive content opportunities
  • Helping shape the social tone of voice across channels and using this to write and edit social copy
  • Being immersed in the communities you manage – learning what makes them tick, how we can capitalise on this to grow the channels and using this knowledge to feed into the brands social and marketing strategies
  • Developing innovative and creative content ideas to feed into the brands social media content calendars. This includes working with FHF’s internal studio to create engaging, sharable content
