We are looking for a social genius to work across our Instagram and TikTok channels (primarily LADbible, Tyla and UNILAD). As a Senior Social Editor, you’ll be responsible for executing a truly unique social strategy, working closely with the Editorial team to create signature LADbible Group content, and helping to build the biggest online community of women happy to be themselves.

The ideal candidate will bring a wealth of social knowledge as well as a knack for quick thinking, problem solving and innovation.

Working within a small team, you’ll spend your days creating original features, spotting viral trends and delivering our daily content to a global audience. Come prepared with regular news and feature ideas, an insatiable appetite for social storytelling and viral content, and a proactive work ethic.

What the opportunity looks like:

  • Working closely with the Editor and fellow Social Editors to create and curate content for LADbible Group’s Instagram feeds, Instagram Stories, and TikTok channels
  • Creating and executing both long and short term growth strategies across both platforms
  • Implementing LADbible Group’s tone and position within the platforms; developing and executing original formats and content ideas
  • Using analytics not just for reporting but also to inform content choices and formats
  • Working with our in-house branded content agency to assist with commercial campaigns
  • Overseeing content schedule on Instagram and TikTok
  • Targeting wider audiences on both platforms

Skills and experience we’d like you to have:

  • Experience producing highly conceptual creative content for TikTok and Instagram suitable for a youth audience
  • A working knowledge of TikTok and proven track record of growing social channels.
  • Digital journalist who can think visually, with a background in news and viral content
  • A keen storyteller inherently tuned in to the interests and passions of 16-24-year-olds
  • Impeccable communication skills - both written and verbal
  • Experience within publishing and/or branded content
  • Adobe Suite (Photoshop, After Effects) knowledge and video editing experience not essential but a bonus

At LADbible Group we've rolled out blended working which means the majority of departments across the business (including London, Manchester and International offices) work from home and the offices on a weekly basis.

LADbible Group is an equal opportunities employer. We are determined to create a diverse group at all levels of our company and we welcome all members of the community to apply for openings with us. As the leading social youth publisher, we have a powerful global platform to better represent our audience and enable those that do not have equal opportunities, to have their voices heard. As a business, we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce, in an environment where everyone feels comfortable to be themselves.
