Southwark Council

The Role:

At Southwark Council, we believe our greatest strength to be our people. Driven by values that promote openness, honesty, and accountability, we’re committed to ensuring our staff, residents, and communities are enabled to reach their full potential.

As our Social Media & Marketing Manager in our newly established resourcing function, you’ll use your skills to help us attract top talent and position Southwark as an employer of choice.

This is a unique opportunity to shape and elevate our employer brand, leading the design and delivery of recruitment marketing campaigns that enable hiring managers to attract the very best talent.

You’ll be tasked with developing a social media presence that reflects our ambition to be an ever-more inclusive, anti-racist employer, engaging specific audiences that reflects the diversity of our local community. Everything you do will grow our brand reputation, support Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, whilst aligning with our broader corporate brand.

The role extends to managing relationships with key stakeholders/ partners, measuring ROI from advertising and recruitment campaigns, and enhancing the council’s online presence on platforms like LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and Indeed.

About Southwark

At Southwark we are committed to making our borough just and fair and are taking positive action to tackle inequalities.  Our residents and communities are our greatest asset and the passion we have for Southwark is shared by millions of Londoners who enjoy our outstanding cultural offer, use our hospitals and attend our universities. Our refreshed borough plan and focus on Southwark Stands Together, (which is our work with Southwark’s communities and the council’s staff to tackle racism, injustice and inequality) underpins all that we do.
