Job Description

Twitter Brand Editor - UK Based

Are you plugged into the who, what, where and when of modern pop culture, from UK drill to exclusive drops? 

Do you live and breathe Twitter to get the inside track on what’s happening before anyone else? 

Do you religiously keep tabs on the creators, curators and collectives that are shaping tastes in the UK and beyond? If so, you could fit the bill. 

We’re searching for a Twitter native to work with some of the world’s leading brands, with the aim of keeping them informed and ahead. 

You could be a tastemaker or a changemaker. It doesn’t matter. So long as you’re in tune with the trends, insights and voices that are relevant to the here and now – from activists and artists to musicians and athletes.

Candidate Requirements

Who we’re looking for

The role of Twitter Brand Editor is primarily about being in the know before anyone else. Second to that, it’s about using Twitter in creative ways – whether you’re amplifying others or spotting trends before they explode. 

You’ll be knowledgeable and enthusiastic about new genres, artists, movements, trainer drops and exclusive events.

For instance, when Kaka turned up at a 5-a-side game in Shoreditch to promote Adidas’s new Predator boots, were you one of the first people to know and talk about it?

You’ll also follow Twitter’s most prolific communities and commentators. Finally, you’ll be interested in what brands are doing on Twitter– e.g. when it was revealed that KFC‘s 11 followed accounts were 11 herbs and spices.

If this sounds like you, get in touch.

Even if you’re not crazy about sport, you’ll be aware of its role in culture.

A background or interest in journalism and curating editorial content.

Experience in a community management role is great but not essential.
