About your role

As a full-time Social Media Executive, you will work with the Social Media Manager to create engaging content and build a dedicated fanbase for a top-tier F1 driver and their personal brand.

You will be responsible for supporting the daily management, copywriting, scheduling and posting across all of their social media channels, alongside managing and organising content during a race weekend. You will also focus on monitoring audience perception and narrative, highlighting posts and working with their wider team to implement an effective strategy.

Your role will be varied and will see you work with the driver’s entire brand team across race weekends, helping create content for merchandise marketing campaigns, managing the community and helping to make sure the driver is at the forefront of all fans’ minds.

We’re a small team, so it’s essential that you’re self-motivated and you have the passion and determination to continually grow and evolve your skill set. You will often have the opportunity to work on wider campaigns that exist beyond social and whilst having the responsibility for your own clients, you will also work collaboratively across other projects within wearegrip.

When you join wearegrip, you’ll be working at the heart of our multi-skilled fast paced start-up and immediately have the opportunity to begin shaping your future within our highly motivated and passionate team.
