CommentsWe are a high-quality community chamber orchestra, looking to keep Oakville as the most livable community in the country. 
The Oakville Chamber Orchestra (OCO), in its 36th year is a thriving organization with a small cohesive management team. We seek a social media manager who will help manage various social media channels for the OCO. This is a mid-volume and mid-paced Arts orchestra that has marketing peaks around each of four concert weekends during a season.

You are detail-oriented, organized, a team player and a self-starter. You take great pride in knowing the latest trends in social content and platform updates. The ever-changing digital landscape intrigues you and you understand social communications across multiple digital touchpoints.
