Job Description

It’s a great time to join Screwfix. Thanks to the hard work of our team and record-breaking sales, we’re proud to be one of the fastest-growing retailers in the UK. And we want to pass that growth onto you.

Whether you’re in procurement, digital, marketing or finance, there’s a role for you here. We’ll support you. And we’ll champion you. Because great things happen when you feel supported to be yourself. We’re innovative. Bold. Adaptable and ambitious. And you will be too.

Reporting to the Marketing Manager – Social, you will work closely with the broader marketing team, customer service social media team, e-commerce and commercial teams to ensure we’re always delivering social first content that aligns with our customer centric strategy. You will support and co-ordinate all the social media content for our social channels and carry out social listening to ensure we’re ahead of the game when it comes to social output!

We believe that a hybrid, flexible working approach offers you – and your colleagues – the best of both worlds. Face-to-face collaboration is an integral part of our warm, friendly culture, so you’ll work from our head office three days a week, working flexibly around our core working hours of 10am-3pm. Beyond that, how, when and where you work is up to you. With a subsidised canteen, free parking and a comfortable, relaxed environment, we’ve worked hard to build an office you’ll want to work in. We also know that, when it comes to school pick-ups and home deliveries, it’s nice to have the flexibility to do both.
