Listen up people, we’re now looking to expand our Edinburgh based team once again! We are on the search for an enthusiastic, bright and dynamic Digital Media Assistant.
Digital Media Assistant | Edinburgh based
Have you got a way with words? Are you passionate about social media and all things digital? Do you want to work for one of the most exciting companies in the UK? (Biased but true...)
We're on the hunt for a DIGITAL MEDIA ASSISTANT with lots of big ideas, creative flare, and a personality to keep up with the rest of the LS team. Sound like you?
As Digital Media Assistant, you will have an interest and awareness in the areas of advertising, film, fashion brands and photography, and have a good working knowledge of the key players within both the UK and international markets (production companies, advertising and photo agencies).
You will be passionate about the power of social media and enjoy curating LS Productions’ online presence to a high standard. You will be familiar with finding a brand’s tone of voice – confidence and wit are key - and you will be happy to create copy across social media and the website. You will be required to do market research for the company, including new industry sectors for sales trips using both online and print content.
You are on the pulse of all things digital. We want you to be self-motivated, positive, show great initiative, be creative and work well in a team. Your strong work ethic and ability to work under pressure and to deadlines is essential. You must have an ability to juggle a varied workload and adapt to different tasks.
You will report to the Marketing & Communications Manager, Katy Hutcheson.

You will keep up-to-date with international social media developments and continue to increase the UK-wide and international presence and awareness of LS.
Content creation is a large part of this role and we need a great writer who is confident in their skills with grammar, punctuation and spelling; happy to write and edit content where necessary and present a confident, engaging and professional company tone across all platforms.
You will support the Marketing & Communications Manager in areas such as PR, brand development, direct and digital marketing plans. You will assist in the design of LS company presentations, mailers, event invitations and marketing gifts. Analytically, you’ll work in-depth on Google and website analytics, as well as supporting on quarterly marketing and company breakdowns.
