Contract (12 months)
Job description

Do you have experience of social media community management in a professional setting? Excellent interpersonal, customer service and problem-solving skills? Would you like to help communicate our brand’s voice, values, and mission, strengthen our community, reach new and diverse audiences, and make the British Heart Foundation (BHF) matter to more people?

As our Senior Social Media Community Executive, you’ll engage, activate, and retain our social media communities. You’ll be proactive in raising our brand, building community, and driving conversation. You’ll be joining a team of community managers who are the voice of the British Heart Foundation on our social channels.

Adhering to brand, tone of voice, and community guidelines, you’ll use your experience and knowledge of social media communities across a variety of platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, X, LinkedIn, YouTube and TikTok. Being brave, you will jump on trends coming through from earned conversation. You’ll build relationships with our partners, sponsors and influencers and provide excellent information and support to our community. 

You’ll be part of a Social Media team that also manage the social strategy, calendar planning, content management and advocacy. Across the charity, there will be a wealth of BHF experts to work with, from Cardiac Nurses and Researchers to Nutritionists. 

Use your skills to help us get closer to a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases.
