Do you know the latest consumer trends from viral cleaning products to money saving hacks? Do you keep tabs on (and hunt down) what your favourite celebrities are wearing? Do you know the difference between the two newest air fryers on the market?

You will utilise our suite of analytical tools including but not limited to Trackonomics, Chartbeat, Google Trends to identify opportunities for commercial content. You will create and implement content plans to drive traffic, ensuring you meet daily revenue targets with ease.
