Melbourne: Social & Paid Media Co-ordinator The Cannabis Company

Are you looking for a job with opportunity to grow? Time for something a bit different? Then, you sound like a bit of us.

We are Australia’s #1 Cannabis Company, with brands in the Beverage, Health & Wellness and Pet categories. Our brands are fast-growing, expanding into new markets and developing new products every month. We are proud to offer Australia & NZ the highest-quality and most trust-worthy cannabis products on the market, as well as being a leading source of information and education to help end the stigma of cannabis.

We are based in Melbourne, but we work remotely – COVID or not. We are the kind of team where any idea is valid as we are constantly exploring new ideas, products & ways of doing things. If you are a real self-starter with a passion for building great brands and great marketing, then you’ve found the right place.

So, where do you come in?

You will also manage our social media pages – helping our other creatives to create posts based off a plan, scheduling posts & monitoring engagement and messages on each page.

  • Stays up to date with trends, changes & pop culture content opportunities in the digital/social landscape.
