Social Media Experts as real as unicorns? Not entirely true in this day and age when social media marketing, blogging, content marketing, online publishing and the social web is rapidly challenging traditional forms of media and advertising.

Not to mention …it’s fun and beats a lot of other careers hands down!

What we are looking for:
Graduates or post graduates in Mass Communications, PR, Journalism, Marketing Management are preferred (Although we can make an exception for someone extremely talented with plenty of relevant experience in what we do)
