  • Description

  • Spring has sprung, Heritage Day is upon us and Rhino Africa has been nominated as Africa’s Leading Safari Company for the fifth year running! In other news, our Marketing team is on the prowl for a Facebook addict, Twitter guru and Instagram #qween, with banter more fierce than a local chicken restaurant, to be our new digital-savvy, analytic-minded Social Media Manager.
    So if setting new market trends is your kind of thing, then dust off your flower crown and turn away from your SnapChat feed, because we’re hunting for a born leader to spearhead our double award winning, multinational Social Media Marketing team by managing our Social Media presence across various channels and languages. Collaborating with our creative, SEO, sales, product and communication teams, our Social Media Manager will be responsible for using their creative influence and authentic innovation to develop and distribute various marketing campaign strategies, like Africa’s Photographer of the Year, and ultimately play an integral role in helping us realize our vision - to be the undisputed authority on African travel!
    The role will cover a broad range of responsibilities, which will include, but will not be limited to:
    *Working with the CMO and Content Manager to define and implement social media strategies across all relevant channels
    *Producing engaging, accurate and on-message content appropriate to social media channels, including the sourcing, editing and resizing of images

    *Recognizing new social media developments, trends and opportunities
    *Compiling collateral and writing copy for external and internal newsletters
    *Working closely with our Sales and Product departments to gather collateral for social media adverts and content
    *Working closely with our Recruiting and HR departments to ensure that new starters in the social media team are sufficiently onboarded
    *Managing a team of social media interns in various languages: English, German and French
    Our ideal Social Media #fundi will possess:
    *A BS/BA degree in a related field (communication, marketing, journalism or business majors)
    *1-2 years of relevant experience in a digital industry or related field, including the management of employees
    *Excellent leadership and communication skills
    *An enthusiastic, outgoing personality with a passion for all things social
    *The ability to work on multiple projects simultaneously, while meeting tight deadlines
    *An excellent grasp of (and flair for) the English language. Knowledge of German, French, Spanish or Portuguese is a big plus!
    *Good problem-solving skills, and a knack for research and writing
    Essential requirements include:
    *A good understanding of the Facebook advertising suite
    *A basic understanding of SEO
