Community Manager

Johannesburg – Permanent

Would you call yourself a word wizard? Can you say what you need to in 140 characters or less? Have you Instagrammed at least one photo of yourself with a Snapchat filter (come one, we’ve all done it). If so, then you might be the person we’re looking for!

Being a community manager is about way more than just answering queries. In fact, you would be the heart of the brand, creating the content that would make people ‘Like’ or ‘Haha’, Retweet and double tap.

Tasks would include:

  • Planning and writing monthly content calendars
  • Reviewing work with the HOD, CD, ECD and BUD
  • Scheduling content across platforms
  • Scouring brand pages and social media blogs to find the coolest creative ideas
  • Working closely with the social media manager and designers to make your creative ideas come to life
  • Daily community management and liaising with the brand’s customer service team where necessary
  • Contributing to monthly reports and social media strategy

In order to really make your mark, you should:

  • Be able to use PowerPoint and Excel (don’t worry, not those crazy formulas)
  • Be able to communicate well (n0 MXit speek all0wd)
  • Be able to pick up typos from a mile away
  • Be able to analyse data and draw insights from it
  • Be able to multi-task, work under pressure and smile in the face of briefs
  • Be self-motivated, tenacious and ambitious

Required experience:

  • Agency experience in a community manager role


  • Knowledge of tools like Hootsuite and Tweetdeck
  • Reporting experience (Facebook Insights, Twitter Analytics)
  • Facebook Blueprint
  • Twitter Flight School

Required education:

  • Diploma/Certificate
