Social Media Coordinator (1-Year Mat Leave)

Posted on December 18, 2018 by

At zag creative, social media really is life. It’s also really a job.

We’re looking to hire a Social Media Coordinator for a maternity leave position to cover social media monitoring and responding for a variety of clients on evenings, weekends, and holidays. The position requires 20 hours a week, split between evenings and weekends with one half day in the office.

The Social Media Coordinator will need to be a quick communicator with their phone never out of reach. The person best suited for this position must be able to adapt to changing styles and tones to best represent client brands on a variety of platforms. The ability to communicate clearly, concisely and typo-free is key. While there will be limited content development required, the ability to develop engaging content will be an asset.

Tell us how good you are at social media. Send your resume and cover letter to Ashley Tyner at ashleyt@zagcreative.ca

Only short listed candidates will be contacted for interviews.

zag 30

Posted on September 10, 2018 by

zag creative has a love affair with pizza. I mean, who doesn’t?!

The difference is we want to share the love by sharing our Alberta promo code for Papa John’s. You know what parents of small children say, “sharing is caring”. So when you see a bus bench advertising the promo code or someone hands you a magnet while you’re out on 104th Street, don’t waste your time thinking, “What’s the catch?”

There’s no catch. Place an online order with an Alberta Papa John’s location, use the code, and save 30%. That’s it.

If you want to share the code with your friends, feel free. In our opinion, the world can use more pizza savings.
