- Teach other team members in best social media practices and provide feedback for potential areas of development.
- Manage the continued growth of our Instagram account and work with the Pictures Team to identify suitable content for the platform (creating picture galleries and news images specifically for Instagram). 
- Keep on top of the changing Facebook algorithm with regards to clickthrough and reach and track any industry updates in best practice for all social media platforms. 

Requirements:
