We are Code for Australia
We create better cities and awesome public service
We believe that Australian governments don’t create better cities--developers, designers & change-makers create better cities.
We exist to connect the movers and shakers with government to make stuff happen
We’re looking for an amazing and passionate Social Media and Content Managers to join our team.
You are a social media addict. You wake up with blog posts and tweets bouncing around your brain and can't focus on anything else until you get them out into the world. This is what you want to do with your life. But, you're not interested in using social media to sell soda, diapers, or condominiums. You want to do something real. This is not the social media job that you've seen listed a thousand times. At Code for Australia, we don't think of social media as marketing. As an organisation built on our community, we use these tools to communicate for real. Our social media strategist is responsible for keeping the community and the world in the loop on all things Code for Australia.
Manage daily content and update weekly content calendar for all social channels including Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
Deliver weekly reports and ad hoc results on social media activity using social analytic tools including Facebook Insights, Hootsuite, Sprout Social, etc.
Partner with the creative team to develop real time creative ideas and content to drive Code for Australia conversation in social channels based on memes, trends, news stories, etc.
Demonstrate success for all of the above (growth of communities, examples of content that has driven high interaction and engagement, clear communication of social media analytics).
Work with all teams at Code for Australia to create and maintain a fresh, up-to-date daily content calendar that tells the Code for Australia story
Serve as CfA’s on-the-scene reporter for all events and stunts
Work especially closely with Code for Australia’s PR team to share noteworthy media mentions that the community would love to hear about
Stay on top of the latest in social media platforms so Code for Australia is always out front in its use of communications tools
You not only write well; you are obsessed with writing (did we just use that semicolon incorrectly? You tell us!) You love nothing more than to share words with the world
Your skills are equally distributed across social media platforms: blogging, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and ones nobody else has heard of yet
You write equally well in long (multi-part blog narratives, documentation) and short (tweets, haiku) forms
You can identify interesting and relevant articles, books, speeches, conferences, movies, etc, on related topics to share with our community
You thrive in an entrepreneurial environment
You are hands-on and have a positive can-do attitude
You have proven success in a high growth, rapidly changing environment
