Social Media Manager

A Social Media Manager is required to work on a part-time basis for a small but rapidly growing recruitment consultancy - Brandon James - based in the heart of Marlow, Bucks

The Company

Brandon James is a specialist recruitment partner for employers and jobseekers in the construction, property & engineering sectors. Established 8 years ago we have 25 full time employees and have been expanding swiftly since last year - post-pandemic.

​We pride ourselves on offering all employees a great working environment, excellent rewards and incentives, merit-based career progression and lifetime training and development.

We have an ambitious growth strategy to double in size over the next 2 years. As we grow, we add to all areas of the business to constantly improve and evolve.

We are based in the centre of Marlow with all its attractions, having recently expanded our office space. Employees work on a hybrid basis with many choosing to work predominantly in the office.

We nurture a trusting, fun, inclusive and results-focussed culture.

The Role of Social Media Manager

The Social Media Manager, reporting to the Marketing Director, will develop our current, individual-led approach to Social Media into a coordinated, consistent and, most importantly, productive function.

Productive means reaching new and existing candidates and clients. It also means attracting future employees.

The Social Media Manager will be given a high degree of autonomy and freedom to develop and implement strategies and content that have measurable and meaningful results.

Our aim, rather than to generate clicks and views, is to continually increase active engagement with jobseekers and employers in our sectors.

The focus of this position is social media management, to include LinkedIn, with an important additional responsibility being the management of our two websites, which are both job boards.

We envisage that this role will be part-time - 15 to 23 hours per week - and largely office based, particularly to begin with.

Tasks and responsibilities:

Creation and implementation of social media strategy:


  • Frequent, relevant postings driving growth in followers and contacts etc.
  • Assistance to each Recruitment Consultant to enhance their own brand, messages and grow connections - possibly creating a flexible template for all their posts
  • Constant analysis of best practice and how to drive more connections, candidates and clients

Twitter, Facebook, TikTok and other platforms:

  • Review and report with suggestions as to if and how these platforms merit inclusion in marketing activities
  • Carry out agreed trials, campaigns and strategies

2 X Websites:

Kept up-to-date, relevant and best-in-class including writing/sourcing articles/content - regular reporting on website traffic and usage plus plans to constantly drive more traffic.

The Person

The successful Social Media Manager will have demonstrable all-round knowledge of leading productive social media campaigns, preferably but not essentially to include LinkedIn.

You will be able to demonstrate excellent writing skills, especially a talent for short, effective messaging.

You will be technically adept - able to work across new platforms and software with relative ease - including some creative image-making.

You will have developed and managed website content.

As you will be collaborating with most colleagues in the business, you'll need good inter-personal skills and the confidence to advise and guide a diverse group of personalities.

In return

The Social Media Manager will benefit from

  • £25,000 - £35,000 pro rata depending on experience
  • Generous holiday allowance
  • Very flexible working conditions
  • Contributory pension
  • Positive and supportive working environment
