Are you a social media maestro, a Twitter trendsetter, or an Insta-icon? If yes, we need your skills! As a Social Media Manager, you'll be crafting spellbinding social media strategies, conjuring up captivating content and managing paid media budgets. You’ll work with some of the most talented and experienced social media strategists, creatives and planners in the industry, and work on a wide portfolio of international and national brands, across consumer, lifestyle and b2b sectors. This role requires a creative thinker with a passion for social media trends, excellent communication skills, and a strategic mindset.

Why would you want to work here?

McCann Birmingham is part of McCann Central, the UK’s largest integrated agency. Over 500 individuals working together to help brands play a meaningful role in people’s lives.

We are also part of McCann Worldgroup, a global agency network that delivers culture-shaping work for some of the world’s biggest brands.

So creativity really is at the forefront of everything we do.

We’re a team of passionate creatives, strategists and marketers from a wide mix of backgrounds. But there’s a lot that unites us – like caring deeply about everything we make. And though our skillsets are wide and our process knowledge is deep, we are all still learning every day.

Our commitment to equal opportunities

For us, diversity is a business imperative – one that must be embedded into every aspect of how we operate in order to drive success. Simply put, we believe an encouraging and inclusive environment makes sound business sense.

As a globally integrated community that influences and shapes culture, it’s vital that the talent mix in our agencies encompass all dimensions of diversity, and that we demand the same of the people we work with.

Conscious inclusion encompasses social, cultural and cognitive differences and cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It is the integration of this philosophy that allows us to create meaningful experiences for our employees, drive better business practices with our vendors and clients, and ultimately lead with purpose.
