Vacancy — Social Media Executive (Closed)


We’re pleased to announce that we’re on the hunt for a Social Media Executive to join the LUX team!

We’re looking for a talented individual who embodies a hunger for food and drink, a desire to work in a fast-paced, creative environment and, of course, an unrivalled passion for everything social.

The successful candidate will be the voice for a range of food & drink brands, managing a wealth of social media channels on a daily basis.

You’ll be responsible for content scheduling and all aspects of community management; nurturing and growing our online communities, and attending to daily interactions. What’s more, you’ll be able to work as part of a dynamic team, contributing to brainstorms and coming up with creative ideas to get those Facebook thumbs a-liking and retweets chirping.

Previous experience isn’t necessary, but being able to demonstrate a strong knowledge and passion for social is key.

So, if you’re savvy in all things social, and know your hashtag from your handle, we most certainly want to hear from you.
