Job Description

Description

Having recently completed the acquisition of King Street Townhouse, Great John Street Hotel & 100 King Street, which along with Hale Health & Country Club form our newly found THG Experiences division, we are now looking for a Social Media Lead to live and breathe our THG ethos as it evolves into a global phenomenon.

We’re focused on creating ideas powered by people, not platforms – we are a team of brand thinkers who know that as traditional models of advertising continue to be under threat, social media’s importance in the broader marketing mix becomes ever more significant. We’re not looking for a Social “Guru”, “Ninja” or other made-up title. We want someone who genuinely gets the space and understands the way it works. We want THG Experiences and our portfolio of properties to be embedded in culture naturally and in an authentic and credible way, not forcing our way into everyone’s feeds.

We’re looking for a progressive thinker, who really understands social and channel strategy – so can help us evolve and push our social presence to the next level.

If you are looking to put yourself at the forefront of communication, at a brand built for the future, and understand the strategic opportunity social media holds, this is the job for you.
