The Frontrunner will take care of this using the WordPress dashboard and other relevant software.
|Distribution of content via social media platforms||The Frontrunner will work with the Marketing Manager and external agency to publish content via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.

|Use of content in digital campaigns and printed media pieces, such as a newsletter or email||There will be occasions when the content will need to be adapted for use in printed material and/or email campaigns.
The Frontrunner will work with the Marketing Manager to prepare the content and the distribution of those pieces. This might include learning more about how printed material is constructed and software such as MailChimp, used for email campaigns.
|Support of the Sulets presence at events (where appropriate)
