Hiring for community management positions

  • Comment

As part of our relocation process to our offices in Exeter, we now have two job openings at Nexus Mods working within our community management team.

This position is based in our offices in Exeter in the UK and you will need a right to work in the UK before you apply.

Here are the details.

The Role
As a community manager, it is your responsibility to interact with and look after the Nexus Mods community and understand the needs and wants of the various smaller communities within. You will be the public face of Nexus Mods and the go-to person for any questions users have specifically about the community including our rules and regulations and how we enforce them.

Your position will have both an internal and external focus. On the one hand, helping to manage and look after the community we already have while on the other helping to expand the Nexus Mods community further, inviting new mod authors to join us and expanding our reach into new games.

As part of this role you will help to manage and coordinate our moderation team, ensuring they continue to do a good job, providing them support when needed and helping to find and recruit new members to the team as and when necessary.

You will need to have your finger on the pulse of the Nexus modding community, the general gaming modding community and the wider gaming industry so you can fully represent us in all those spheres. It'll be your job to ensure the Nexus Mods community remains strong and vibrant while continuing to grow.

Nexus Mods now has a strong social media presence on both Twitter and Facebook. As community manager, you will source and post highly relevant content on our social media channels and work to increase our reach in social media through promotions and other mediums.

You'll be learning the ropes of your position from our current community management team of SirSalami and Terrorfox1234 and reporting directly to Robin.

    to me the only problem is having the right to work in the UK... other than that I'd be gold for the position. Bah, nothing I can do though...
    Ages ago I've talked about how I could get my Italian Citizenship and try to move there as an EU resident, but with Brexit things seem to be quite dire for people like me, and for that I've sort of postponed getting the documentation, which would require me to move to Italy for a period...

    Let's see. None from above, but as a VP janitor of the building I may be the right person. Now with working on CV.

    Alas, I have not the skills nor the flexibility in my humble life to even apply for this endeavor. I can dream though and continue to make my cheesy mods.

      They literally say where it is in the 2nd sentence. Don't expect to get the job with poor reading comprehension
