Overview

A junior designer and social media manager is responsible for both various internal or client design tasks as well as directing strategy and creating content for all of Cantilever's social media channels.

They need to stay up to date with the current social platforms and have experience and knowledge with all of them. They also need to keep up to date with changes that happen not only with the social networks themselves but with what works successfully strategy-wise.

While Cantilever is a small company and doesn't have unlimited resources to dedicate to content generation and interaction. It is crucial to keep up activity not only to start to build social assets and bring in new potential clients but as well to stay in the eyes of existing clients. From a branding perspective, it is also important as social proof.
