Social Media Manager
Experienced social media manager to bring the wonder back to Earls Court
Where the Earls Court Exhibition Centres once stood is now Central London’s largest cleared development opportunity. As this derelict 40-acre site is redeveloped, Earls Court will be reinvented into a place where everyone can discover the transformative effect of wonder.
With awe-inspiring meanwhile installations on site – from the BBC Earth Experience to Padel courts to an extensive public art programme – you can already taste that future here today. Long term, Earls Court is a place addressing the deeper questions, like creating a spiritual home for clean innovation and an ecosystem for London’s cultural talent.
DNCO is the creative studio for culture and place. We believe design has the power to bring people together and transform what places can do for communities. We are working with the Earls Court team to communicate their vision for the area’s reinvention.
We are looking for an experienced social media manager to join our team and lead Earls Court’s channels through the transition from consultation phase to London destination.
