Social Creator, Copy + Content

US-NY-New York | US-IL-Chicago | US-GA-Atlanta | US-TX-Dallas | US-NC-Raleigh


We're looking for someone who lives and breathes social media. For example, someone that could take this job description and make it the best thread on Twitter or an Instagram Story that you want to send to your friends. We’re interested in someone who is always up for the task – because every day at Ketchum is different.


Someone who knows what works best on all of the major social platforms. Comfortable writing and creating in short form or long form. From snappy headlines, to the right hashtags and where to find the next great meme.


You can switch brand voices like a true linguist, have strategic instincts, know what’s on trend in social marketing, and love creating cool experiences through content. You’re a good self-critic, always trying to craft a better line or know the best GIF to reply with.
