Social Media Football Reporter - Bilingual Spanish/English - Barcelona - £35,000 - £45,000

A global creative agency that grows brands and creates extraordinary campaigns for huge clients is looking for a social media reporter to engage and grown their football client's social media community, by following one of the biggest football icons/megastars around the world. You don't have to live in Barcelona but you must be willing to move there as this will be your base.

This role is unique and will give you the opportunity to report and manage the global social media activity for a huge football star. In order that your content is authentic and engaging, you will be physically tracking them wherever they are in the world, creating and sharing updates via social media channels including Facebook and Twitter.

You need to keep the community in touch with the player during the playing season, as well as off season, with both on and off the pitch related content. You should have proven skills in social media and community management and development or solid skills in content and social journalism. Since you need to engage credibly with this sporting community, an excellent knowledge of football and a clear passion for the sport will be a distinct advantage. You must be bilingual with excellent writing and grammar in both Spanish and English and be happy to travel every week - usually to away games within Europe but sometimes further afield.

You will have the full support of a London based community manager, moderating social feeds, responding to community posts and re-tweeting content, in addition to a full creative team, but ultimately you will be the bridge between the online community and the player. To maximise your chance of interview you should highlight your:

*Bilingual Spanish and English writing skills
*Examples of social media, community management or social reporting
*Research skills including eye for detail and accuracy
*Development of stories from observations and creative writing for different audiences
*Understanding of brands and marketing
*Football passion/savvy especially European and International teams and games

The agency itself is ambitious, innovative and fun with a sizable London and global team which offers significant investment in the development of their people. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to share and build on the passions of a football community whilst travelling with a football megastar. The successful candidate will receive a highly competitive salary of £35,000 - £45,000 and a full compliment of benefits too many to list.
