    Social Media Assistant - Sound

    UNILAD Group

    Feb 2018
    • Manchester, United Kingdom
    • Full Time
    • Since joining UNILAD, I have gained experience in a variety of fields. On a day-to-day basis, I handle Instagram operations for UNILAD Sound, using Hopper, Insights and Trello to manage the platform efficiently, and have grown the platform’s followers by 23% in 6 months. I have used communication tools such as Slack to collaborate with colleagues in London and Manchester to develop new strategies and content. Over the course of the past 10 months, my role has lead onto; event management (working at Wireless 2018 running the UNILAD/UNILAD Sound Instagram), scriptwriting (Sound Sauce IGTV), campaign work (Sky One’s ‘Bulletproof’), researching and talent management. I have gained experience in content creation, and have led the creative direction process for various projects. Firstly, ‘Sound Sauce’, a digital editorial platform based across Facebook story and Instagram feed, with an average viewership of 200k on Facebook. Secondly, a freestyle series, ‘Bars in Cars’, allowed me to develop an understanding into A&R, shoot co-ordination, video production and audio editing. Lastly, an idea that I pitched during my interview, ‘Therapy Sesh’, hit 1 million views on its first episode, and attracted talent such as Jason Derulo, Rae Sremmurd and Tory Lanez.
