Despite the National Football League’s ongoing PR troubles, millions tuned in to watch the 2014 season.
Nielsen reported that more than 202 million people watched NFL games in 2014, making it the second-most-watched football season. Last season’s NFL games also took up 45 spots of the top 50 most-watched TV shows last fall.
Passion for the pigskin isn’t limited to Americans. The United Kingdom has more than 5.73 million NFL fans, and with this week’s featured job listing, you could help increase that number.
The NFL is looking for a social media coordinator in London to increase its presence in the U.K. by creating engaging content, launching competitions and interacting with fans online.
Candidates should have at least two years of experience growing brand presences on social media. Experience with the entertainment industry will give you a leg up on the competition.
The position calls for content creation and fostering fan growth on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Snapchat and YouTube, along with involvement in a variety of virtual communities.
Candidates should have strong graphic design skills and know about the latest social media and technology trends and tools. Though you should have a basic knowledge of the game, the NFL doesn’t require that the position to go to an avid football fan.
If interested, the application deadline to email your resume and cover letter is Friday, Sept. 18.
