Are you a digital social butterfly who is at the forefront of all the latest and emerging social trends, knows how to create authentic engagement, leverage social media to grow an email list, and convert onlookers into buyers? Are you passionate about compelling Instagram captions and social media impact for business?

The Sober School is looking to work with a Social Media Marketing Coordinator. Our ideal candidate understands that social media isn’t all about likes and comments – it’s about creating brand awareness, growing our email list and expanding the reach of our online coaching programmes.
