Junior Social Media Manager for Innovative Crafting Brand

 Full or part-time job opening / by Brice Gaston

Join Sword and Shield Notions, a trailblazing company dedicated to revolutionizing the crafting industry by offering high-quality, inclusive crafting tools designed to empower and inspire. Founded by a 20-yr military retiree, we are a 100% verified veteran-owned business committed to inclusivity and quality. We’re seeking a passionate Junior Social Media Manager to help us grow our community and share our story online.

Sword and Shield Notions is redefining the landscape of textile crafting with an innovative approach that caters to an often-overlooked demographic—men and veterans. Founded by a passionate male quilter and military veteran, our mission is to break through the traditional barriers of a female-dominated hobby by offering high-quality, durable crafting tools that resonate with all crafters, regardless of gender.

Our products, which range from scissors to rotary cutters and seam rippers, are designed with unique, masculine themes and constructed to the highest standards, ensuring they meet the practical and aesthetic needs of a diverse crafting community. At Sword and Shield Notions, we believe in the power of crafting to heal and unite, which is why we emphasize inclusivity and the therapeutic benefits of our tools, especially for veterans dealing with PTSD.

We are committed to building a vibrant community around our brand, fostering a space where creativity thrives and every crafter feels valued and understood. Through our strategic partnerships with organizations like Help Heal Vets, we extend our mission beyond commerce, actively contributing to initiatives that support mental health and well-being through crafting.

Join us at Sword and Shield Notions as we craft a new path in the industry, promoting not just innovation in crafting tools but also a broader, more inclusive vision of what it means to be a crafter in today’s world.

What You’ll Do:
Develop and implement a social media strategy that aligns with our brand goals.
Create and schedule engaging content across various platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Monitor and report on performance metrics, using insights to optimize future strategies.
Lay the groundwork for a future marketing department by establishing scalable processes and documenting effective practices.

Who You Are:
You have a solid educational background in Marketing, Communications, or a related field.
You are eager to apply what you have learned in a real-world setting and are looking for an opportunity to take on responsibility and grow.
You possess basic skills in content creation and social media management and are keen to develop these further.
You are creative, adaptable, and enthusiastic about crafting and community-building.

Growth Opportunities and Benefits
This role is designed for someone who is looking to build their portfolio and advance their career in social media and digital marketing. Initially, this position will involve managing a modest scope of responsibilities and hours, but as Sword and Shield Notions grows, you will have the opportunity to expand your role, take on new challenges, and increase your compensation to match.

We understand that the right candidate may not have much practical experience but has the drive and foundational knowledge to make a significant impact. We are committed to mentoring you and supporting your professional growth within our company.

As a military veteran and founder, I am dedicated to ensuring that Sword and Shield Notions not only succeeds but does so responsibly by committing to pay a living wage to all employees as the business thrives.

Application Process
Submit a resume and a cover letter outlining your interest in crafting and any relevant experience.
Include a portfolio or examples of past social media campaigns if available.

Candidates Who Will Catch Our Immediate Attention:
We highly value the unique perspectives and experiences that come from military service. Veterans bring a level of discipline, teamwork, and leadership that is immensely beneficial and valued by our team.

Additionally, alumni of the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership (HOBY) program stand out to us. Your demonstrated commitment to leadership development and community service through HOBY aligns perfectly with the values we cherish at Sword and Shield Notions.

We are particularly interested in candidates who demonstrate a profound understanding and passion for textile arts in any of its forms—be it quilting, knitting, embroidery, crochet, or sewing. If you possess in-depth knowledge of these crafts and meet our “Who You Are” criteria of creativity, adaptability, and a commitment to inclusivity and community, you are likely to be a perfect fit for our team. We value individuals who can bring not only their skills but also their enthusiasm for crafting to help us further our mission of making crafting accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
