Social Media Executive

We’re Greystone.
We don’t do recruitment and we do it brilliantly.

The role

The days of hammering the phone in recruitment are over! The role of a Social Media Executive is to think smart and utilise the digital social media tools available at your disposal to unlock uncapped commission by generating leads that you can then pass over to our sales team to convert.

Your day-to-day responsibility is to promote Greystone’s brand across 2 key areas; our existing membership network and new prospective members through the effective use of social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Greystone’s own website.

Each day will be different, and so will the content you promote. Ensuring Greystone are thought leaders in our industry through fresh, exciting and valuable content, you will ensure your followers are engaged and that they call us first when they are looking for a new role.

Whilst this role could be suited to someone wanting full time hours, equally it can work for someone looking to earn some extra cash alongside their current job, someone who could dedicate a few hours a day whilst looking after the kids, or a student wanting to earn some cash alongside studying. Whatever the example, this is a great role with freedom for someone to pick up and put down to suit your lifestyle, when you need to unlock some commission.

The Greystone model

We think recruitment is broken. Are you ready to be part of something better?

Most people already know that recruitment isn’t working. We’re all looking for something better. A better way of doing things. Better jobs. Better candidates. But that better future just won’t happen with recruiters that are stuck in their old ways of working. It takes a radical new approach – one that rethinks the entire recruitment model with quality in mind. Greystone was founded to be different. We have redefined and reimagined the way incredible candidates meet the companies they’ll spend a lifetime with. We’re interested in people not positions, because to us, it’s bigger than just a job spec.

We are confident we can change your point of view on how recruitment should be done, forever. Once you have experienced it you will never want to go back to the traditional recruitment world.

We brand ourselves as an exclusive club for elite engineers, with our club being a network of elite professionals whose careers we manage for a lifetime. It’s hard to get our attention and only the top 10% of engineers meet the selection criteria required to obtain membership, entering a world where recruitment is done brilliantly.

Our members each receive a bespoke service tailored to their career needs. We don’t work vacancies so the members are never ‘sold to’; instead their careers are placed at the forefront of what we do to ensure they are always in the best position possible. When a member wants a new opportunity, we go on that journey with them, together and exclusively. Our members know what they want from the next step in their career, this brief becomes our job description, and we map the market to ensure every company who fits this brief is approached.

73% of the placements we make are with clients who aren’t hiring, are not advertising and are not in the market. However, a Greystone member will be of such quality and such a true fit for that organisation, that 73% of the time they create and shape an opportunity around that individual. Role Finding reimagined at its best! The remaining 27% of opportunities we find our members are the known vacancies out there that happen to already be an organic fit. By taking the time to complete the search and turn every stone, our member has complete faith knowing they are making the right career decision as they have had access to the whole market and chosen the opportunity that is right for them.
