○ Assisting with oversight and quality control of partners/vendors (including reviewing Influencer content)

● Reporting

○ Pulling reporting/metrics into reporting templates, updating and circulating to stakeholders.

● Other tasks not outlined above, as they arise

Skills

● Organization, accountability, and attention to detail (again, we’re not just saying this). This role will need to assist with multiple projects – all while adhering to very strict timelines.

● Ability to write clearly in a business setting (email, Slack,To-Doist, etc.). Clear, succinct, and accurate communication is absolutely critical to this role and success within the organization

● Ability to be action-oriented – identifying problems (or opportunities) and taking corrective action

● Self-motivated – can set and meet deadlines, prioritize tasks, and work with minimal direction

● Ability to communicate proactively throughout the organization and community

● Attention to detail – like being able to reference this bullet point in replying to this JD.

● Experience and expertise using: Google Sheets, Excel, Google Docs, Microsoft Word, All social media platforms, Slack, Canva, To-Doist, and other platforms and software as needed.

● Preferred: wide variety of social media knowledge – from platform best practices, performance tracking, engagement, etc. This includes fluency across multiple networks, understanding each platform’s functionality, voice, purpose, etc.

Qualifications
