About the agency

Be a part of a social media agency that’s right behind the push of the social media revolution. Cubaka always believed that all marketing would be social, and they were right.

From adding pizazz to Virgin Train’s socials to steering Toyota through their very first crisis, continuously leading the rest of the market in the automotive community management, your work will be creative, fun and always interesting.

This role will see you play a pivotal part at Toyota GB HQ in Epsom, Surrey. With 10 other Cubaka employees in that office, you’ll get to know the team in no time. Whilst Cubaka is a social media agency, this role is purely PR & Events focused, so you’ll work as an integral member of the PR team.

Cubaka offers clients the chance to plan and manage effective social media. Their current clients include Linda McCartney Foods, Lindt, Mattel, Star Alliance,   Hager, Royal British Legion, AXA IM and of course Toyota and Lexus.

 

Training & Career Development

Cubaka is all about hands-on training. You’ll work closely with your line manager and be given the space to ask all the questions you need to succeed. If you’re vocal and make yourself visible, you’ll thrive.
