Why Media has opened up an exciting opportunity for a passionate and fun-loving Digital Content Creator to join our Hertfordshire team. 

Are you addicted to social media? Well, this role could be for you!

As a fast-paced Creative and Marketing Agency, we seek a creative, passionate, and enthusiastic Digital Content Creator looking to take their social media career to the next level. 

Working alongside the Marketing and Creative teams within a fun, fast-paced full-service agency, this role will suit somebody who has previous content creation experience and is now looking to accelerate their career to cover a spectrum of content types and channels.

Founded in 2010 but previously part of a Hong Kong agency, Why Media has an excellent reputation for delivering high-quality, innovative, creative and marketing services to many companies, from start-up tech companies to blue-chip international institutions. 

We also have team members and offices sin Spain and Italy.

We also pride ourselves on essential stress and responsibility away from our clients regarding design and marketing by taking ownership and ensuring projects are delivered on time, to the highest standard and within budget. 

We are incredibly proud to have worked with many of our clients for over ten years due to the relationships we have built through transparency, work quality, the ability to listen to and understand the clients’ needs and the ability to evolve with the times.

More About The Role

As a Digital Content Creator, you will work closely with our marketing and creative teams to support various clients by creating engaging, relevant and high-quality digital content in the form of still images, short videos and stories. 

This role comes with autonomy and responsibility, and the ability to be well organised, work with an agile project management structure and practice excellent communication is essential.

The nature of this role also requires somebody who has their finger on the pulse when it comes to trends, social media algorithms, new social media features and knowing what content works for which audience. 

This role will suit individuals who have previous experience working within an agency or a fast-paced marketing agency.

In recent months, the world of social media has significantly changed, with short video clips becoming imperative to any digital marketing strategy; however, our recruit will have a solid understanding of what content type works for each client and social media channel.

Teamwork is essential to us as an agency; however, it’s also vital that you’re able to work independently when it comes to research, problem-solving and identifying trends and content ideas. 

Your base will be our office in Hertford, Hertfordshire; however, this role will require you to gather content at least twice a week out of the office.  Most of our clients are within 1 hour drive from the Hertford office. We also have a small office in London which works well as a base when visiting clients in the Capital.
