Social Media Customer Team Lead

Social Media Customer Team Lead - afternoon/evening and weekend shifts



There’s more to marketing than running an advertising campaign and hoping it performs well. Building the greatest food community in the world requires a deep understanding of the people that make it up.

That’s why we like to say we’re as good a listener as we are a talker. By that we mean we communicate with our customers and restaurant partners in the same way. We stick to our brand values, and ensure each remain as excited about building the world’s greatest food community and discovering new flavours as we are.

Joining our Marketing department, one minute you could be working on a TV campaign and the next a Halloween discount offer push. It’s fast-paced, fun, creative and varied.
