Major Players are really excited to be working with a brand that's going to make Britain a better, smarter, and more efficient place to live. You'll be working in a company that's mission is to literally change the future of Britain, and that's what you'll get to do every day alongside other friendly, passionate, and award-winning people. The organisation itself is all about being conscious of the environmental impact our society has, and so the organisation itself is focussed on its own sustainability - thereby leading the way and setting an example for us all.

Seeing social campaigns from inception to fruition, you will be pivotal in delivering our company-wide objectives.

You will not only oversee the creative development of social content, but, with your team, you will also have oversight of community management. As comfortable with numbers as with copy, you'll put measurement at the heart of everything we do, to ensure we deliver best-in-class results for our investment.
