Job Description:

Golin is seeking a Supervisor, Digital / Social Analytics (Senior Manager to us) to join our Chicago office. This is an awesome opportunity for anyone who loves to solve problems, make strategic recommendations, and consult on earned and digital media campaigns to join Golin and have an immediate impact.

For this specific role, you should have a skillset that includes several analytics-related competencies. But if you're missing something, we can teach you. This role isn't about knowing the back end setup of Facebook or having your Google Analytics Certification (though it's awesome if you do!). It's about connecting the dots between something you saw in Twitter Analytics, a finding from Instagram, and a trend from your favorite brand on social. It's about looking at media coverage and understanding what's working and what's not. Then you need to use your findings to make a strategic recommendation for Golin clients.

From there, you have to sell it. In a lot of ways, the internal Golin team is both your ally and your client. You have to make them believe in the recommendations that you are making. This can take the form of a quick but well-informed email, a meeting on Teams, or a formal presentation deck with cool visualizations that help tell your story. That's why our ideal candidate not only has an interest in how social media and earned media campaigns tick, but at the core is also a great marketer and communicator. This is a must.

Golin is a progressive public relations agency designed to reach the profoundly diverse market. Inclusion is a core value for Golin and we are focused on establishing a culture that is intentionally inclusive, potently diverse and uncompromisingly equitable.

Our expertise ranges from brand-building and cutting edge digital content, to corporate reputation, healthcare advocacy and measurement. Golin aligns earned-first, data-driven creative with the customer journey through our collaborative G4 Model to deliver maximum impact for clients. Our roster includes many of the largest CPG, retail, food, healthcare, technology and service companies in the world.

Named PR Week's Global Agency of the Year for two years running and winner of a 2019 Gold Cannes Lion, we tend to Go All In, in everything we do. We're especially committed to going all in for our people. We challenge our employees to be Courageously Happy, and have empowered them to do so by offering our LifeTime benefits program. LifeTime offers unlimited time off, enhanced family care, generous health and wellness benefits, the ability to work from anywhere one day a week and a monthly LifeTime stipend for the gym or hobbies. Our culture is built around happy people who are the best at what we do!
