Head of Social Media
McCann Bristol is looking for an ambitious Head of Social Media who is up to the challenge of delivering award-winning work and with a passion for developing new business and a hunger to grow.
About McCann and you
You’ll be joining our Bristol team who are committed to delivering stand-out, modern work for blue-chip clients across a wide range of disciplines including planning, research, creative, media, digital and PR.
You will also be a part of one of the biggest and fastest growing regional PR and social operators in our own right, with 60+ operators in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Milton Keynes and Leeds. And, as a part of the senior team, you’ll have a say in how we build on our success and create even greater clout in the future.
McCann Bristol is an agency of its own, but also very much an extension of McCann Central, the UK’s largest integrated agency with over 500 individuals working together to help brands earn 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.
We have a (literal) wheelbarrow full of awards including Euro Effies most effective global agency, Cannes Network of the Year, Campaign’s European Integrated Agency of the Year, not to mention McCann Central’s haul of awards in recent years at Cannes Lions, Clios, One Show, D&AD, LIAs, Golden Drum & Creative Circle Awards. So, creativity really is at the forefront of everything we do.
As Head of Social, you’ll be responsible for leading and delivering campaigns across existing clients, as well as working closely with our new business team to scale our social media offering in Bristol.
We’re looking for a confident individual who has a great track record of developing strategic social programmes and delivering outstanding results - ideally with brand experience across food and drink/confectionary, consumer tech, retail, housing and higher education/student markets.
You will need to demonstrate a passion for storytelling, expertise in shared and paid media and in applying latest techniques to deliver meaningful work with commercially relevant results. You will need a keen eye for the detail coupled with a strategic view of where your clients should be heading.
Your client relationship skills will be second-to-none and you’ll be passionate about helping to grow and develop the team. As a senior hire within our multi-disciplinary PR, social and influencer team, you’ll also be adept at pitching for new business, spotting and converting opportunities to grow current clients and managing client finances.
If this sounds like you and you’re ready to take your career to the next level with a highly driven and award-winning team, let’s talk.
In addition to a competitive salary, we are committed to creating a brilliant environment for all our people. This includes benefits such as 28 days holiday, plus the opportunity to buy more holiday, enhanced pension contributions, life assurance and much more.
A culture of learning and development is also central to our ethos, so you’ll have access to industry leading training and development programmes, plus you’ll get to work closely with the world’s biggest media partners to access exclusive features and products.
Most importantly, you’ll be part of a fun and collaborative team and you’ll work in an environment where you are supported, pushed and developed.
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.
