Do you thrive on creating social content that makes people take notice and clients rave about? Then hello! This could be your next big career move. 

What’s the role? 

The Content Manager is a mid-level role at Heads & Tales with room to grow in our evolving business.

The Content Manager thrives on finding creative ways of building an online presence, as well as experience using analytics in the formulation of a content strategy to talk to both consumers and B2B audiences – understanding the different requirements and relishing the challenge.

- Strong SEO skills, preferably experience using SEMRush or similar search tools 
- Proficient using a variety of CMS

Key responsibilities: 
- Create a dynamic line-up of content for clients that’s built on your own content marketing/ editorial expertise, market insights and data that meets our client’s brand and marketing goals 
- Commission on-point content from a wide network of contributors and influencers, from writers and industry experts through to animators, video producers and photographers 
- Coordinate content feedback from clients and make amends 
- Manage clients, their requests and problem solve, ensuring our deliverables are submitted on time and on budget, and meet (and even exceed!) expectations 
- Communicate and pitch concepts to both internal agency members and client stakeholders
