Social Media Manager

Social Media Manager, Digital Agency, Manchester based Retail Client, £32k

Forward Role are working with a fantastic digital agency who are looking for a Social Media Manager in Manchester City Centre where you'll work onsite 2- 3 days a week for a large retail client (and the rest WFH). This Social Media Manager role offers the best of both- the chance to work for a growing agency, whilst effectively working in-house for a huge brand. Oh and they offer unlimited holidays!!

It’s a great opportunity for a Social Media Manager to really lead the social media output across Instagram, Facebook and TikTok. The client are really open to ideas and you'd have the chance to take real ownership of their social offering with strategy, implementation, posting and community management. They're effectively launching their TikTok so you'd own this development as well.

The agency itself are really relaxed, down to earth and offer unlimited holidays, flexible working hours and a yearly training budget. They are a UK wide team who predominantly work from home but meet up for workshops and socials etc. There’s tonnes of autonomy and flex around how/when you work and you’d be trusted to own your workload.


  • Manage publishing of content across multiple social media platforms including Instagram, Facebook & TikTok
  • Review/evaluate organic social media performance
  • Social media analytics and presenting these reports to clients monthly
  • Have a creative flair and pitch exciting social media trends
  • Take the lead on scheduling all social media content
  • Build up strong engagement online through community management
  • Work alongside designers/photographers to create social content
  • Be an expert on consumer trends and social media trends to inform the clients campaigns

As Social Media Manager you'd work closely with the client’s in-house marketing team and become a key part of their marketing function.  Roles like this are rare and with the agency having doubled in size over the last 2 years, it’s an exciting time to join! Whilst your core role would be social media, you’ll work alongside a talented agency team who cover multi-channel digital marketing.
