Are you a social media fanatic and are you addicted to Internet culture, viral content, memes, and GIFs? Do you enjoy keeping on top of all the latest social media tools, features, and platform news? This may be the job for you!

Yoast is one of the biggest players in the world of SEO and WordPress thanks to our 7,5 million users worldwide. Because of our rapidly growing company and the amount of work that goes with it, we’re looking for a social media assistant to support and to unburden our Marketing team.

  • You have clear and compelling ideas how to create social creatives.
  • You monitor social campaigns and reputation closely.
  • You initiate and contribute to the launch of planned and spontaneous social activities and campaigns.

As a social media assistant you need to be proactive and you work independently. You need to be extrovert and outgoing. Besides that you have:

  • You act and think on HBO level. A degree in Marketing, Communications or digital media studies is a plus.
  • Excellent copywriting skills in English.
  • Experience with social media, like Facebook and Twitter, is required. It doesn’t need to be professional experience, as long as you’re very active on social media yourself.
  • You have a deep understanding of the ways of social media like Instagram and YouTube.
  • You are approachable and committed to teamwork.
  • You have good organization and multitasking skills.
  • You have a positive and proactive approach.

We’d prefer you speak Dutch and English. We would expect you to work out of our office in Wijchen, NL (near Nijmegen). Submitting a motivation letter is a required part of the procedure.

The application process consists of three parts: an introductory job interview, a practical interview, and a final meeting. These steps might be divided over multiple days. A social media screening might be part of the procedure.

This vacancy will close on April 18th, 2018. The job interviews will be planned for April 23rd, 2018. The practical interview will be planned for April 25th and the final meeting will be planned for April 26th.
