Head Of Social

Job Description

Shaka Social launched in January 2022. We’re 1 year old and growing fast. So, why would you want to work with an agency that’s so young?


Since launching, we’ve created social content for some of the largest brands in the world (Skyscanner, Red Bull, ClearScore, Checkout.com, Enterprise Rent-A-Car + more).


We’re an incredibly ambitious team and we have our sights set on becoming an industry leader within the next two years. We’re agile, ambitious, fun and more importantly, very good at what we do.


It’s an opportunity to be a key player and influence the trajectory of a business that’s ready to scale.

What you’ll do ?

We’ll give you the freedom required to take ownership and make a genuine impact from day one. This will be your role to shape.


  • Conceptualise and implement impactful social strategies that drive growth for our clients.

  • Ensure that social content is planned, created, scheduled and delivered.

  • Manage our small (but growing) team of social media managers.

  • Identify relevant trends and integrate them into any ongoing strategy.

  • Take responsibility for delivering monthly reports and analytics. Providing insight on growth opportunities and monitoring channel performance/using data to inform ongoing strategy.

  • Work closely with our paid social specialist to bridge the gap between paid and organic.

  • Design and influence internal processes to maximise efficiency and creativity.



The good stuff ?

  • The opportunity to be a key player and shape the future of an ambitious business with its sights set on growth.

  • Monthly team events.

  • A hybrid-working approach.

  • £250 yearly education allowance. We’ll provide you with £250 annually to learn absolutely anything – it doesn’t need to relate to social media.

  • A brand new Macbook.

The requirements ?


We’re not looking for you to have 10 years of experience in TikTok or a PHD in Snapchat. We’re looking for someone who genuinely understands how to communicate ideas through social media, wants to help shape the future of a growing agency and enjoys thinking outside of the box to consistently deliver stand-out work for some of the world’s most ambitious brands.


  • Previous agency experience is strongly desired, although not essential.

  • Experience creating, implementing and managing successful social strategies/campaigns.

  • An in-depth understanding and familiarity with TikTok, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook and Snapchat.

  • Familiarity with paid social advertising on both Meta and TikTok.

  • Content creation experience is strongly desired.

  • Graphic design experience preferred.

  • Highly motivated, with a genuine passion for growth.

  • Strong organisational skills with an attention to detail.

  • An innate understanding of Gen Z trends and culture.


If you don’t have all of these requirements we would still encourage you to apply. We can offer any additional training.

We’re committed to being an equal opportunity employer and actively encourage applicants from all backgrounds to apply.
