👋 Who we are

Born Social is a global social media agency that brings social-first thinking to the brands of tomorrow.

For the last 10 years, we’ve helped brands navigate and harness the chaos of social bringing method to the madness. From household names like Guinness, Primark and Mars to the next generation of leading brands like Uber and Nando's.

We're an ambitious team of over 100 people across the UK, Spain, France, Portugal & Germany and not stopping there.

Excitingly, we're now looking to bring in a Director of Influence to spearhead our creator offering for clients: building, launching and growing our creator product.

As our Director of Influence, you’ll play the critical role in launching our creator offering to market, leading the development of the product and processes, and scaling it commercially.

✏️ What you'll be doing:

  • Product Development: working with our clients to build a Born Social creator product that delivers value for the businesses we work with, and stands out in the marketplace

  • Commercial Growth: building and growing a new revenue stream for Born Social, managing pipelines and winning new briefs

  • Award-Winning Output: delivering best-in-class creator output for our clients that smashes KPIs, wins awards, and integrates with broader delivery

  • Thought Leadership: building our reputation as creator experts, becoming widely known in the industry for our view on the role they play in building social-first brands

👀 Who we're looking for:

This role is perfect for anyone who's had strong experience in a influencer/creator role in an agency for the last few years and is looking to take on a new leadership role. Specifically, we're on the lookout for:

  • Minimum of 5 years agency experience in a creator/influencer role
  • A track record of pitching and delivering industry leading creator campaigns, rooted in cultural relevance and social insights
  • Experience of introducing new products, services and IP agency-side
  • An ability to lead and inspire others
  • An industry voice with a distinctive POV on creator marketing
  • Confidence in developing high-level client relationships
  • A great presenter, confident in convincing clients to invest in creators

✌️ Our values:

Our values aim to pinpoint the magic ingredients for us at our best. We look for people who share our values and can add to our culture. 

See Challenge as Opportunity... is about our attitude and to be very clear, this is not a value of optimism, nor is it about loving every challenge.

Say It Simply... is how we communicate. Think of the basic rules of communication - honest, clear, confident.

Do What You Say... is the crux of our reputation and longevity. When you join Born Social, our trust is fully given. It is yours to lose. 

Make Each Other Better... is about our culture of collaboration and commitment to development. We are only as good as the people around us so we all take responsibility for developing each other, as well as ourselves.

Consciously bigger than all the others.  It ensures we grow right. It broadens our focus beyond Born Social and cements our commitment to doing what’s just, not what’s easy or immediately self-serving.

💙 Everyone's welcome:

We celebrate different ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds here at Born Social. As an equal opportunities employer, we believe in the power of an inclusive and representative team. We welcome applications regardless of race, religion or belief, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, political affiliation, family, or parental status.
