The sample JDs above are a great place to start — or try using this template for a social media coordinator as your guide. I’ve listed examples so you can easily copy and paste.
[Here, you can use “Social Media Coordinator,” or there are other options that might fit your biz better. I list 7 title alternatives later in this post.]
Tip: Keep your job titles between 1-3 words and 20 syllables or less. This helps with SEO and makes them easier to read. For example, “Engineering Manager” is a better title than “Software Engineering Manager – Growth & Remote Support.”
[This is where you talk about your social media coordinator role.]
Include a sentence on:
- what the social media coordinator does
- some goals they will reach for
- how they work with the team (or other teams)
Tip: Look at other companies for inspiration. Activision’s “What we’re looking for” section is a great example! Here’s what they want in a social media coordinator:
“…you will work with the Call of Duty team as a highly organized and driven member to provide support to the Digital Marketing department as we drive our strategy from compelling ideas to engaging campaigns both domestically and internationally. This is a rare opportunity to join the marketing team behind the biggest franchise in gaming and entertainment history and grow in the digital marketing department. You will have the opportunity to work with best in class creative partners and cross functionally within our organization.”

- Monitor social media accounts (e.g., Instagram or TikTok)
- Collaborate with designers and content writers on campaigns
- Track campagin performance
- Establish an influencer network

Tip: Keep your “responsibilities” lists short. Using more than 7 bullets might make candidates feel underqualified or overwhelmed.
[This section is where you list basic qualifications and experience.]

Here are some examples:
- starting salary range of $75,000-$90,000

Tip: Even if it’s a range, list salary details. Candidates spend more time looking at it than anything else. This heatmap of what candidates look at on a job description (by Content Marketer Greg Lewis of LinkedIn) show’s how important it is.
[These are some optional sections you might use in your social media coordinator job description template.]

[Here you can talk about yourself!]
Some ideas to include:
- what type of business you are in
- how great the company is
- your core values
Tip: I like to save the “About Us” section for the end (even though about 50% of JDs start with About Us). Instead, end your JD with the About Us. That way, you can START your JD about the candidate/role, making them feel valued.
[Most companies have an EEO or diversity statement. You can put yours here.]
Tip: You’ll find more examples in our blog 25 Examples of Awesome Diversity Statements.
