Social Media Content Creator
Do you have the drive, enthusiasm, and a passion to help take the North further? If yes, then come and be part of our amazing team here at TransPennine Express.
Who are we?
We are an intercity train company connecting people and communities across our cities and major towns in the North of England and Scotland. Together we will continue to transform rail travel with faster, easier journeys that offer a step change in services with our fleet of new high-tech trains.
The North is a vibrant place to live and work and here at TransPennine Express our services are helping to keep the country moving. If you want to be involved in something truly transformative, that will have a lasting impact on how we travel, then please join us and help us to take the North further.
We have a fantastic new role for a proactive, tenacious and dynamic individual to join our Customer Operations team as a Social Media Content Creator.
What will you be doing?
You'll be supporting the team with the creation of proactive content that keeps customers informed and engaged. You'll also help organise campaigns that can help us to understand what customers want from us and what we can do to further improve our offer on social media.
You'll be representing us on a variety of customer contact channels including Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook and more. As an expert in railway accessibility, you'll also be creating inclusive content which will provide the best experience for as many people as possible.
By working closely with our central control team at the Railway Operations Centre and the management team at head office, you'll also learn how to support our customers with social media queries, from ticketing to seat reservations, to compensation claims to service disruption. A huge focus will be first contact resolution where you'll be using your highly polished skills to resolve a customer issue before it progresses into a complaint.
You'll need to develop an in-depth knowledge of railway operations, so you can stand on your own when the going gets tough and deliver the right messages in the right tone of voice for our customers. You'll also be acutely aware of what customers with accessibility requirements need from us and how to ensure that they have all the right information to enable a seamless journey experience.
Who are we looking for?
You'll have experience working with design software to create professional and inclusive content. This includes images, GIFs, animations, videos and more. A qualification in graphic design is desired but not essential.
You understand social media trends and how to create engaging campaigns to support our customers on all channels. You will be comfortable working from home, our head office and at the Railway Operations Centre (both based in Manchester).
You have top-notch writing skills and you're already familiar with social media and digital contact channels. You can write in a personable and empathetic tone when drafting messages, and you'll be comfortable working under pressure when disruption strikes the rail network.
You can work proactively and on your own initiative, but not be afraid to ask for help when needed. You'll be working in a busy team, so you'll also be a team player with a positive attitude and a great sense of humour. Last, but by no means least, you'll be customer focused and committed to providing the best service we can offer, plus you'll be comfortable in discussing improvements with the management team and being vocal on what you feel can be done better.
If you have any previous experience in supporting customers with disabilities, that would be excellent too!
To say thank you for all your hard work, we offer competitive salaries and some great rewards. There's a final salary pension scheme and big savings on rail travel: free TransPennine Express journeys for you and free leisure journeys for your family. You and your family can also get discounts with other train operating companies. Your job comes with 25 days holiday plus standard UK bank holidays as well as all kinds of benefits, discounts and a Cycle to Work scheme.
