If your answer was a resounding ‘YES!’, read on because we have an exciting opportunity for you! We’ re looking for a Social Media Account Manager who would love to work…

from anywhere in the world

on your own hours

with exciting FMCG, Hospitality & Lifestyle brands that align with you

in a flexible environment built on mutual respect and accountability

*​ As a client-facing Account Manager, you will need to be available when your clients are.

But first, here’s a little bit about us.


We are optimistic

We are all weird

We work as a team

We are accountable

We are a Melbourne-based social media agency, founded on the principles of ‘fewer clients, more results. We only work with brands we love so that we can deliver the best results.

Our vision is to build a company where we all love what we do. For that reason, we do our best to pair passionate professionals with brands they love. We pride ourselves on an environment that’s based on mutual respect, accountability and passion. We eagerly seek diversity of background and skillset and are focused on the alignment of attitude and energy. We’re a flexible working agency so you can work hours and locations that suit you.

We value ideas, passion, and drive. Our people come from a range of backgrounds: big-shot ad agencies, crisis management, site-specific theatre, photography, one of them wrote an honours thesis on #foodstagram, another one is famous in Germany. You get the picture.


1. You get to love what you do

Our agency was built on the philosophy of ‘loving what you do’. Because how else are you going to create awesome work?

As our Performance Marketing Manager, you’ll be assigned work that genuinely interests and excites you. Our agency is very creative so you have free reign to come up with strategic ideas for your clients and make them happen! We’re open to any suggestions about your processes and/or workload so you can create your dream job.

2. You get to work with an optimistic team that values you and your work

Eight Clients is made up of an outstanding collection of weirdos who make it a point to find the bright spots. Humans aren’t wired to focus on the positive, but we’ve trained ourselves to go against the grain. After years of being an agency, we found that it’s always productive to focus on what is working well and do more of that.

We channel this positive mindset into celebrating your every win, however small it may be. Chat us up on our #milestones Slack channel about the amazing client meeting you just had or the delicious pot roast you made for dinner and we’ll be cheering you on either way.

3. You can work remotely and own your hours

Plan on working from a beachside villa in Bali? Awesome. That’s 100% possible with our remote working policy. We love for our employees to live amazing lives and want you to feel free to work from anywhere.

We’re also super flexible with time. All we care about is that you’re happy and the clients are happy. As long as you get your work done on time and to a high standard, we don’t care about where you’re working or what hours you’re working.

As a Social Media Account Manager, your role is client-facing so if you are in a different time zone you will need to skew your work hours towards your clients so you are available when they are.

4. There’s tons of opportunity for growth

One of the perks of working for a small but rapidly expanding team is the opportunities for growth and promotion. As we scale our business, we’ll need to fill higher positions- and you can bet we’ll be looking at you. In the meantime, you’ll be exposed to big global and local clients across several industries, which really wouldn’t hurt your resume

5. You get to prioritise your mental health

We take your well-being seriously here. We acknowledge that you aren’t a machine that’s meant to be smashing at a desk for 8 hours straight.

That’s why we’re currently offering unlimited mental health/sick days to help support the team during Covid-19 lockdowns and beyond. So you’ll be free to take that mental health break if you need to! No questions asked here.

All of our employees are also entitled to $500 per year to spend on whatever you like in relation to supporting your holistic wellbeing. Whether it’s workout gear, a visit to your mental health professional or a subscription to Knitting Mag, there’s no judgement from us.

We believe that when you are at your best mentally and physically, you’ll be doing your best work. Repeat the cliche after us: self-care isn’t selfish.
