Social media specialist
at Hassell

HASSELL is looking for a social media specialist to join its team in Melbourne.

The role

Are you a passionate social media professional looking to shape your career within an award-winning global design firm?

We are on the hunt for a social media specialist to take ownership of creating, growing and nurturing great social communities for HASSELL and FreeState. Working from our Melbourne studio, but with an international focus, this role requires both strategic and creative thinking to improve our digital brand experience and to support our global expansion.

Day-to-day the role will include multiple activities such as developing content strategies and calendars for our global projects and people, creating content for programs and campaigns, devising media buy strategies to reach target audiences, managing communities, monitoring content success and managing different internal stakeholder groups and approvals.

You will report to the marketing and communications manager and will collaborate with the business, heads of design and agency partners along with the wider marketing and communications team to deliver exceptional social experiences.

About you

You’re well into your social career with four plus years’ experience under your belt in a similar role either from a professional services, creative or agency environment.

You will have completed a communications, marketing, journalism or similar degree and will have a genuine passion for developing great online communities with experience across Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter in particular.

You will need to be flexible enough to move between strategy and implementation, bringing energy to everything you do. You’re a self-motivated and impactful person with impeccable spelling and grammar, Adobe suite skills and an eye for design and photography.

Up to speed on all the latest social trends, you’re known as an ‘in-house expert’ on all things social. Ideally, you will have experience working with multiple brand accounts, influencer strategies, paid targeting and campaigns. You will naturally be skilled in managing social toolsets for listening, publishing, planning and reporting (Meltwater Engage, Sprout social, Planoly or similar).


HASSELL is a leading international design practice with studios in Australia, China, South East Asia, the UK and US.

We judge the success of the buildings and places we design by the way people use and enjoy them – the clients who commission them, the people who inhabit them. Good design is about helping clients meet their needs and objectives. It is also about the way people feel when they experience it, a sense of meaning, connection and belonging.

Our people are our practice. With that in mind, we place great emphasis on attracting, retaining and developing the best talent.

As a practice, we place value on the quality of ideas and the contribution our people make to our open and collaborative culture. We support innovation and creativity, enabling exceptional design outcomes.

We value diversity employing people across a number of regions, representing many different cultures and ethnic backgrounds.

Our team have access to a range of benefits to support development and wellbeing:

  • creative studio working environment
  • inter-studio transfer opportunities
  • development and training including access to an online training program
  • wellbeing benefits
  • flexible start and finish times, part-time and job share arrangements.

    In this role, you will help lead the development of our social media strategy. This an amazing opportunity that offers the chance to work in a creative culture, to be part of a passionate and inspiring team yet have significant freedom to carve out real career opportunities, and enjoy meaningful personal and professional development.
