We're Hiring - Content, Community & Social Media Assistant

We’re on the hunt for a passionate sports fan to join our marketing team on a Content, Social Media & Community placement. While this is a four-week contract, we are planning to make the role a permanent one in 2019.

Your focus will be the keeping our existing users engaged whilst helping to grow our community of sports fans.

You’ll be creating content, supporting on key brand campaigns and helping us improve the performance of our marketing channels. With fans at the centre of everything we do, you will help MatchPint become everyone’s ‘best mate for sport’.

Hang on, what is MatchPint?

MatchPint is a platform that brings people together to watch sport. Why? Because we believe that watching sport with friends is so much better than streaming it on your own, in bed, with last night’s cold takeaway. We’ve been using technology to bring fans together, on more occasions, and in more places, to experience sport at its best since 2011.

Here at MatchPint, we think the pub is a pretty good place to start: a great atmosphere, ice cold drinks, pub grub, and all the craic. While part of our mission is functional - to help fans find these pubs - the other is emotional - to ensure their experience, once there, is the best it can be.

This is an amazing time to join the MatchPint team with plans to build on +100% year on year growth. This will involve venturing into new countries and building new viewing occasions into our mission to bring people together and enjoy sport at its very best.

Who do we work with and what do we do?

  • Fans use MatchPint to find out which pubs are showing which sports events. It's great. 1.9M unique people used MatchPint to find a pub in the last 12 months.
  • Pubs use MatchPint's sports content management system to organise, market, and measure the success of their sports broadcasting. Over 2,500 pubs are using MatchPint to drive their business forward. Customers include Stonegate, Greene King, Fullers, ei Group, and Punch Taverns.
  • Brands work with MatchPint to provide an even better sporting experience for pubs and fans. Brands such as Guinness, Budweiser, Heineken, and Carling use MatchPint to encourage people to visit pubs through content, increase engagement through gamification, and drive rate of sale with offers and vouchers redeemable on MatchPint.

And what’s the role?

The role will have two key focus areas.

1)    Content creation and community management
2)    Marketing support (production assistance, measuring performance etc.)

We need a candidate who is capable of switching from writing zippy marketing copy and engaging blog posts, to engaging and growing our social media community. Additional editing skills would be useful, as you will be assisting in the production of both image and video content served to our users, throughout the sporting calendar.

The right candidate would also be confident in basic reporting and collating performance figures to enable us to analyse and strategise.

The role will give an all-encompassing overview of key marketing principals and we need a candidate who is hungry to learn on the job and show their skills from the first whistle.

What will you be doing?

  • Creating content in a range of formats. From short form articles for existing communities to creating SEO pages for new territories, sports & tournaments.
  • Supporting on idea creation for key brand campaigns
  • Managing the in-app communications with our users and reporting on their weekly performance.
  • Support in the briefing, creation and delivery of key campaign assets – visuals, videos and audio.

Why should I be excited?

  • Be part of a great team - join our talented and ambitious team, who all share a passion for sport & pubs, and consider themselves mates before colleagues.
  • Help build something new and disruptive - we're already making good progress here, having won a host of awards including Marketing Week's ‘Top 100 Disruptive Brands’.
  • Help us truly understand our sports fan community - keep them engaged with relevant content as we move through our expansion plans.
  • Do something that you love & are passionate about - our team can’t wait to come into work on a Monday morning.
  • Learn and develop in a cutting-edge industry – real progression opportunities within reach for high performers who demonstrate the right attitude.

What are we looking for?

To apply for this role, you must:

  • Mad about sport
  • Possess exemplary written skills and the ability to communicate authentically as a fan
  • Available to work in London

You’re the ideal candidate if you are also:

  • Social media savvy, with experience of growing an audience
  • Confident with numbers, and reporting on the performance of content
  • Motivated by attention to detail and working to tight deadlines
