As part of a young but growing business the applicant will be required to have good writing skills with an interest in writing for business and an ability to have a go and ask questions when needed.

You will be required to create social media calendars, press releases, blog posts, and other written material for business audiences so being comfortable using social media platforms is crucial. We manage the social media channels for a number of B2B clients.
