Wellington City Council is looking for a social media specialist to join their team.

  • Connect Wellingtonians to their city
  • Increase awareness and participation in events
  • Coordinate corporate social media channels

This is no 9-to-5 role! You will need to be able to attend events, create content and engage in conversations on social networks throughout the day. You should be confident using smartphones, taking videos, photos and interviewing people to produce stories on-the-fly.

A significant part of this role is connecting with people, places and stories around Wellington. You will be an experienced social media or community manager and a confident communicator with the ability to engage in conversations on a variety of topics.

Wellington City Council requires a dedicated Social Media Manager to coordinate the council’s Official Social Media Channels. To be successful in this role, you will need to:

  • Be an energetic and confident communicator – your smartphone will be glued to your hands and you’ll be active on all social media networks especially Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube
  • Love Wellington – know all the good spots to hang out and regularly attend events around the city
  • Hold a degree in communications and/or marketing with at least five year’s experience coordinating corporate social media channels, content creation and community management
  • This position has been created to tell more council stories, connect more Wellingtonians to the people, places and events in their city. You’ll be measured on how well you increase awareness and participation in events, issues and facilities, while demonstrating value for money to rate payers.

Please include links to personal social media channels and any corporate/brand social media profiles you have managed previously. Applications may be submitted in any shape or form. Be creative to demonstrate you have the key skills and requirements to take on this role.
