We’re looking for a hands-on, creative editor for a global broadcaster’s Nordic social media accounts. Local language and cultural context are key so you will need to be a native speaker of Danish or Swedish.

You’ll need to know entertainment and how to entertain. From quote retweets to junket concepts, to award-winning campaigns for new titles. You’ll be the kind of person who knows a hilarious response to a comment can be just as valuable as a scripted video. You need to be comfortable in front of clients and talent and have the ability to guide and inspire a team of creators. You’ll be adept at juggling multiple projects and an active inbox, consistently hitting deadlines.

This is a role for an experienced content creator, someone who can spot a good angle a mile off and is on top of the social landscape. You’ll also be able to see the bigger picture – how an idea can transcend social platforms and work on other media and in the real world.

Skills wise you’ll need to be able to sell great ideas. You’ll know how to script short films and brief a designer; if you have some design skills yourself, even better. You’ll know that no word is wasted. You’ll be able to chat with a young audience without sounding like an embarrassing parent and vary your tone according to what you’re talking about.

This is a role where you’ll be constantly creating. It will give you the opportunity to create career-defining work.

The Job:

Oversee a team of writers and creators.

Oversee and contribute to the planning, creation, and delivery of consistently brilliant branded content for distribution across social media channels.

The Person:

A minimum of three years’ experience with a proven publishing background.

High level of creativity – this is an ideas driven account and we are looking to elevate our ideas to have bigger impact with this new hire.

Solid understanding of creating video content for social (not the production itself but the ideation, the scripting etc.)
