Now Hiring! - Part-Time Social Media Assistant and Copywriter


Social Media Assistant and Copywriter (Part-Time Manchester Based)

What we’re looking for: 

Claddagh Creative is looking for a social and copywriting-obsessed individual to join our team as a Social Media Assistant + Copywriter. 

We’re looking for someone who is interested in working with sustainable e-commerce brands, is organised, collaborative, and detail-oriented, and who really wants to grow in this industry. 

This is for you if: 

  • You have previous experience in a social media role 
  • You have previous experience within a role that involved some form of copywriting 
  • You love both Social Media Marketing + Copywriting, and you're willing to put in the work to grow your skillset 

This isn’t for you if: 

  • This role will combine both social media + copywriting, so it’s important that you have a love for both; if you have experience in social media but not in copywriting or vice versa and you are not 100% sure if you like both, then this isn’t for you 
  • You are not able to ‘professionally context switch’ what we mean by this is a social and copywriting job within an agency can mean a lot of back and forth and having to do a few things simultaneously; this type of skill goes beyond organisational skills, and if you feel like its something you can handle we’d love to hear from you!

Duties and responsibilities: 

  • Taking a client's social media strategy and working with the wider team to implement it
  • Strategising with the client and the wider team on campaigns and content ideas to grow and elevate the client accounts 
  • Aspects of community management and engagement will be involved
  • Strategising stories, and posting ideas for clients and implementing them
  • Using content given by the client to edit together reels and video content
  • Writing blogs, emails and social media captions 
  • Research on trend topics in regards to blogs, emails and social media 
  • There will be other tasks not listed above that will be required that relate to social and or copywriting in some form

Essential skills: 

  • Understanding of social media platforms such as Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and TikTok.
  • Initiative to not only improve but to ask for help 
  • Inquisitive nature and a true desire to learn and improve - in regards to copywriting, social media and sustainability 
  • The ability to spot a problem, come up with a solution and resolve it 
  • Organisational skills are essential, social media marketing can be quite overwhelming and this skill of truly being able to be organised is much more rare 
  • Excellent written and verbal skills 

Are you social-obsessed + love to write? 

Now let me clarify: there is a difference between being obsessed with consuming content on social and being obsessed with the why behind it 

The specifics:  

Pay: £14 - £17 per hour depending on experience

Role type: Part-time contractor, working 16 hours per week split over two days

Start date: May 1st, with the potential to start earlier

Key to note: 

  • Support will be provided, and training
  • You must be based in Manchester, United Kingdom 
  • This will be 2 days per week with 1 of the days per week being in person in Manchester City Centre 
  • This is a contractor role you will be liable to pay your own tax and file, although this position has the opportunity to come completely in-house.T

How to apply: 

  • Send your CV, and Cover Letter (as PDF’s) to with the subject line: Social Media Assistant + Copywriter (Part-Time Manchester Based)
