More about our values:

Our business is driven by its nine values and we are looking for team members who share them. Your three-monthly appraisal objectives will be set according to them, they are talked about during every new prospect meeting, and they’re emblazoned on our studio wall. We expect you to stick to them, no matter what:

Honesty: We are not looking for perfect human beings. But what we do want are people who understand the importance of telling the truth at all times, even when they get things wrong.

Ethical: That means doing what’s right, what’s best for the client, and what’s best for Status Social and the team.

Excellence: We expect you to go above and beyond what is expected by us and the clients. We are no ordinary social media consultancy and you will need to be extraordinary with us.

Teamwork: Everyone is part of the team at Status Social. Even the bosses. Which means we stick together, we support each other and we help each other to grow. We work really hard together, with everyone pulling their weight.

Open Feedback: We don’t expect you to ever criticise another member of the team behind their back. We do expect you to tell them constructively, in the right way and at the right time when things don’t quite go right. And that means being open with everybody at Status Social.

Creativity: Life is boring when it’s not creative. We expect you to regularly come up with great ideas, whether for your social media management and training, or to make Status Social even better.

Accuracy: We work for national and international companies. They expect perfectly-written social media content. They don’t want to see spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. And neither do we.

Plain speaking: We don’t like bamboozling our clients with long-words to make us feel important. So we don’t. We also speak plainly when we address each other. It’s just the way we are.

Fun: Having fun at work is really important to us. We want people to enjoy their job and we laugh A LOT. That’s why we don’t let people work their birthdays, we close the business down to go to beer festivals, we have official lie-in days and we have team days out walking in the countryside.

Salary: £18,000 – £24,000 depending on experience

Buffer, Tweetdeck and analytics – what I learned during work experience at Status Social

Buffer, Tweetdeck and analytics – what I learned during work experience at Status Social

Looking for a job in social media? Status Social is always looking for its next talented members of staff. One method we use to find potential new employees is through internships and work experience. Landau Forte student Richard Frost carried out work experience with Status Social. Here are his thoughts on his week…

“Over the past week, I have been doing work placement at Status Social and have found the experience very interesting. I have learned about how businesses should use social media and why they should be using it.

I have learned about things such as scheduling tweets, through the use of the Buffer app and Tweetdeck and I now understand the purpose of what businesses do on social media too.

I kept a log of all the things I did while at Status Social which helped me keep track of everything I learned during my stay.

I have learned how events are run on Twitter and how social media can be used to attract potential customers. I also learned from observation how Status Social discover who could be a potential attendee at an event and who would not. For example, for the Derby Beer Festival the team would look for people who were interested in beer who are not too far from Derby, then tweet them to try and get them to come.

WAYI have also seen a side to social media that I have never seen before such as Twitter Analytics. I never knew you could find out how many people have been viewing your tweets over certain periods of time. I learned about this when I wrote my report on Status Social’s Twitter Analytics. This helps a business see what does well on Twitter and what doesn’t. This allows them to streamline their social media content to make it as good as possible.

Overall, my time at Status Social was very interesting as I learned about all kinds of things about social media and the business use of it. It was very eye-opening and now I know how to use social media most effectively for a business. I understand the tactics used by businesses on social media to gain a following of customers and potential customers.”
