  • Visual and photographic skills to create your own assets for social channels, such as low-lift video or self-shot content. Familiarity with basic video editing.
  • Experience in publishing, scheduling and analytics tools, as well as confidence in interpreting and explaining data. 
  • An interest in the design and interiors sector, understanding what makes an on-brand image and knowing what makes a fantastic story for the audience.
  • Solid understanding of the key different social media platforms and their nuances, best practices and latest developments.
  • Ability to work calmly under pressure, meet tight deadlines, and provide self-guidance.
