We are currently working with an amazing fashion brand based in Manchester. This is an amazing opportunity to join a growing digital team as Copywriter & Social Media Manager. 


  • Live and breathe all the social media channels; Facebook, Instagram, YouTube & Pinterest, to name a few
  • Create thumb stopping, headlines & engaging content to increase the social following and inbound traffic
  • Channel your inner fashion vibes to write longer, fashion articles for the avidly read blog
  • Be the digital voice and ambassador of the brand
  • Lead the social media strategy, create a content strategy and manage all planning & reporting
  • Ensure all content calendars across social are in line with the brand vision and business commercial goals
  • Drive innovation and explore all new social media opportunities

Who we’re looking for:

The role is for someone who is of a creative mindset and self-motivated with a heartfelt passion for communicating via social media to vast audiences. You will have:

  • Experience in fashion retail
  • A strong background in social media, with knowledge of content strategy and influence marketing tactics
  • A solid understanding of fashion influencers
  • The dynamic ability & talent to write both punchy headlines and shorter phrases to longer articles, press releases & product copy
  • The ability to communicate clearly both verbally and in writing, through both text, video and images. Everyone loves a meme! But you have to understand the need for variety in social media content
  • A writing style that’s energetic, sometimes humorous but most importantly real. They talk to their readers and customers, not at them
  • Analytical skills to draw conclusions from data and sales reports - we know social is super fun, but we still need to make sure we’re engaging with the audience how and when they want to be and looking at the numbers is a key way to check we’re still on track with this
  • An enthusiastic and energetic, ‘go the extra mile’ work ethic - do what you love and love what you do
  • An excellent attention to detail and quality
  • An intuitive grasp of brand and customer
  • Strong organisation skills: self-directed and capable of working effectively in a fast paced, exciting environment while juggling multiple projects.
  • A good knowledge of SEO
