Part-Time Social Media Editor (HIRED)
Rachel Sutherland Communications is growing quickly and we’re looking for someone to join us on our amazing ride. Every day is different at RSC. We have a passion for what we do: helping clients tell their stories through a variety of mediums. Part of why we love our work is because we’re not happy just punching the 9-5 clock and calling it a day. Often, our work takes us outside of our collective comfort zone. And we think that is awesome.
We are looking for someone who isn’t afraid to work hard (and play just as hard). Someone who excels at and genuinely enjoys finding solutions and tackling the task at hand. We need a team player who understands the value of clear, concise communications and the transformative power of consistent messaging across platforms. Someone who will love empowering clients through communications as much as we do.
