Paid Social Media Specialist

Social Media Boston, Massachusetts


Position at Havas Media

We're adding a Paid Social Media Specialist to our Boston based team.

The Havas Social team is looking for someone who wants to grow as a strategist in a media environment. You’ll take a hands-on approach to building partnerships, optimizing campaigns, reporting performance, and establishing yourself as a social media expert. This is not your typical media agency role; if you have an entrepreneurial mindset and want to grow your career at a company that can offer you a global network of colleagues and resources, we want you to be the next Specialist on our team.


What You’ll Do:

  • Lead every step of the campaign process, owning trafficking, QA, pacing, and delivery to make sure we hit our goals, on budget
  • Report, track, and speak to all media KPIs/campaign performance. If a stakeholder asks, “how is my campaign doing?” The specialist should have an answer
  • Manage relationships with our partners at Havas Media, as well as with platforms like Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter
  • Show off your social media expertise, using your deep knowledge of platform capabilities to help teams make sense of creative opportunities
  • Display your creative thinking in new business pitches, client planning exercises, and regular Havas Social team meetings
  • Educate more junior members of our team, leading by example through proactive communication and time management
  • Support the senior team by identifying new partners/tools and processes that we can use to work smarter
  • Become a more holistic digital marketer, effectively tying a client’s goals to all stages of the consumer journey with the right mix of tools


What You’ll Need:

  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited university
  • 1+ years of experience with social media, in a paid capacity
  • The ability to multi-task, keeping track of various projects at the same time
  • Great communication and problem-solving skills - Specialists have the unique ability to touch all facets of a campaign, so we want someone who is comfortable communicating successes and proactively troubleshooting against issues
  • A collaborative work style - a huge part of the Havas Social culture is helping out where needed, regardless of level or designated role, to make great work
  • A comfort level working in Excel to make sense of budgets and platform data
  • Curiosity - there’s always something new to learn in this space, and we have a team of teachers who want to help you succeed
  • An eye for detail - campaigns have a lot of components, and we want to make sure no element slips through the cracks before a launch
  • Experience in planning, pacing, and tracking media budgets
