Senior Social Media Specialist

We’re looking for a SENIOR SOCIAL MEDIA SPECIALIST whose passion for social media strategy is borderline obsessive. Who is equally comfortable #hashtagging, recommending launch tactics, Instagram storying, presenting to clients and troubleshooting platform issues. Who is as energetic and forward-thinking as they are deeply knowledgeable about social media and have an understanding of rural communities and agriculture.

As part of the Social Media team, you will be responsible for both bigger picture and day-to-day strategic and tactical social media work for assigned agriculture and rural lifestyle clients. This includes:

  • Creating and executing social media strategies for new or existing channels
  • Paid social campaign management (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, maybe even TikTok, soon!)
  • Community management, channel moderation and crisis communications
  • Synthesizing information across channels (analytics, social listening, competitive & SWOT analyses) to provide actionable insights, driving social strategies
  • Influencer and cause marketing campaign activations
  • Spearheading organic growth and new business social tactics
  • A familiarity and enthusiasm for agriculture and rural markets to effectively engage communities and generate outcomes.

To thrive in this position, you should have 2-3 years of professional social media experience under your belt, spanning content strategy and execution, paid media, social listening and reporting, crisis management and influencer marketing. We’re looking for a strong communicator with a background in agriculture. This could mean you have a degree in ag journalism, you’ve worked with agriculture or rural lifestyle clients, or you’ve just grown up in the ag community. At Woodruff, we’re bold, curious, collaborative and accountable, among other attributes, and you should uphold the same leader behaviors.

This person could work out of the Kansas City, MO or Columbia, MO office or remote.

When you apply, please submit a resume and 3-5 relevant writing samples.
