Freelance Social Media ManagerAccurx

London, England, United Kingdom 03-12-2023

At Accurx, we're on a mission to make patients healthier and healthcare staff happier. 💚

Who are Accurx? 🤔

We’re a fast-growing healthcare technology company which makes it easier for patients and healthcare teams to communicate.

Accurx is where conversations happen with and about patients. Our software helps doctors, nurses, pharmacists, administrators and other professionals to seamlessly connect with both patients and each other.

Our mission is simple: everything we do is to make patients healthier and healthcare staff happier. Today, Accurx is used in 98% of GP practices nationwide and every day more healthcare professionals are using our software in hospitals, pharmacies, care homes and the community.

We’re passionate about staying close to our users, which is why everyone at Accurx visits a GP practice at least twice a quarter to understand how a practice runs, the difficulties they face with technologies and how we can help. 

Although we’ve initially tackled the UK healthcare system, we have big ambitions to improve healthcare systems across the world in the future. If you want to hear from some of our Accufolk about what it's like to work for us, take a look at a video from our 2023 summer conference!🤩

Life as a Freelance Social Media Manager at Accurx

We're currently looking for a Freelance Social Media Manager with a passion for healthcare. As a company, we want to drive awareness and trust amongst our key audiences of NHS buyers and users, policymakers and talent, and see social media as a vital way to do this.

This is a remote, freelance position, requiring two days a week of commitment for the next three months minimum, but could be extended. You will work closely with the Marketing team at Accurx, reporting directly into the Communications Lead. 

Your day to day responsibilities will include:

Content creation: Create, edit and schedule high-quality, relevant and engaging social media content for Accurx’s LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook page and Facebook community group of GPs. The content should align with Accurx’s goals, tone of voice and reflect the unique audience of each channel. Content would predominantly consist of either promoting our content e.g. blogs, events and media coverage (~70% of the focus) and commenting on current events within the NHS and health landscape (~30%). Content should seek to grow Accurx’s following on each channel and keep existing followers engaged. Sprout, the social media management platform, would be used to schedule content. 

Profile management: Draft content for the LinkedIn and Twitter profiles of two senior spokespeople at Accurx - the CEO and co-founder, and the VP of Clinical. Ensure they are engaging with Accurx channel content at least once a week. 

Social media monitoring: Monitor social channels for mentions, comments and messages, and flag relevant ones to the Communications Lead in order to respond (or decide not to respond) in a timely manner. Ensure any potential issues are reported instantly.
