As a Social Editor for Tyla, you will use your intuitive understanding of social media trends and algorithms to build the daily news list aimed at a millennial/ Gen-z audience.

You will produce and share content across Facebook and Instagram to give each and every piece of content the chance to reach as many of our readers’ lives as possible. You will have an eye for soon-to-be trending news and will support the editorial team with sourcing stories and developing feature ideas. Crucially, you will know how to create the words and images to package a story on social media better than any of our competitors. 

You will be an adept and unflappable social media expert, with a passion for analysing insights and traffic, building engagement on social media and spotting opportunities within the changing landscape of digital.

Being able to task manage other team members, as well as mentoring to ensure their personal career development, is essential.

Working closely with the Editor, you will also be expected to take on the responsibility of individual projects and have a voice on the direction of Tyla editorial.  And, crucially, you will have an instinctive understanding of what makes the audience tick, while never being afraid to experiment and try new approaches.

What will you be doing? 

  • Writing the social media sells across all platforms for all editorial stories and videos.
  • Remaining proactive by researching and seeking the latest news, trends and exclusives ahead of competitors.

About Tyla:

Tyla brings the UK’s young women together with relatable, entertaining and thought-provoking stories. We encourage women to share their life experience and advice within our thriving community.

We bring the news she cares about direct to her social feed. The stories that make her laugh, that she shares in the group chat and that get under her skin. At Tyla we’re never about improving or changing our audience.

Due to the latest COVID restrictions, both LADbible offices (Manchester and London) are closed and we will keep the date for reopening both offices under review in line with further Government updates. Whilst this role is temporarily home based, when our offices reopen, this role will be based in our London office, therefore you must live within a commutable distance to E1 7PT.

All interviews are being conducted via Zoom until further notice.

LADbible Group is an equal opportunities employer. We are determined to create a diverse group at all levels of our company and we welcome all members of the community to apply for openings with us.
