Volunteer Social Media Manager

August 2018

MacArthur Award-winning Lucky Plush Productions is an internationally touring dance-theater company that provokes, inspires, and entertains audiences through its layered choreography, surprising humor, and socially relevant storytelling. Since 2000, Lucky Plush has created 30 original dance-theater works including 14 evening-length productions. In addition to regularly performing in Chicago, the company has presented work in over 40 US cities from Maine to Hawaii, and its international partners span from New Zealand to Cuba.

Lucky Plush seeks a Social Media Manager to join our inaugural volunteer marketing team. Using Hootsuite, the volunteer schedules posts on an array of social media platforms including FB, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. With the goal of scheduling daily posts at least two weeks out, the social media manager incorporates copy from copywriter and digital media (photos, videos, gifs) from the Managing Director. The Social Media Manager must be familiar with "the tricks of the trade" such as the best times to post, etc. and be motivated to stay abreast of changes. He/she creates, implements, and tracks various ticket links across all social media platforms. The Social Media Manager submits periodic reports to Managing Director on follower engagement and reach. An upcoming project includes an advertising campaign for our November performances at Steppenwolf 1700 Theater.


  • Two or more years experience using all features of FB, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn; and the desire to stay up-to-date on new features.
  • One year experience using Hootsuite or other auto-posting platform.
  • Must be tuned in to current events so as to be relevant and appropriate.
  • Ability to work independently and remotely.
  • Available for pre-scheduled weekly teleconference meetings with the marketing team.
  • Estimated time per week is 2-3 hours.
  • Length of commitment is negotiable, but preferably able to commit to two months, starting immediately, with the option for ongoing relationship.
  • This is a volunteer position.
