Are you hyper organized with an ability to manage clients, projects and yourself? An effective task master who works in the details while understanding the big picture? A writer with a passion for public relations, reputation management and client success? Let’s talk.

Because of our continued growth, The Arland Group is seeking a Social Media Specialist to write for and manage some of our most important social media accounts. For public relations professionals, this is a unique opportunity to combine professional writing and social media strategy with clients ranging from FORTUNE 500 companies to startups.

This is a role where you can grow with us and determine what your career path looks like. If you want more responsibility, you can have it. If you want to share ideas, we want to hear them.

• A background in public relations, preferably, but applicable fields are also welcome

• The ability to manage and monitor all social media platforms on a daily basis to preserve our clients’ brand integrity; posting timely and engaging content, responding to inquiries, interacting with people and increasing overall online presence, fan base, and engagement levels.
