Manage Social Media for Nature

Do you have a natural flair for various social media platforms? Are you good at creating and editing content?  Then this internship will help you on your way.

The role of Social Media Manager has not been around for very long but is already considered vital to boost the visibility of any person or organisation. You learn the professional tools and techniques used by social media managers. Importantly, you will also get to put this knowledge into practice by managing several social platforms on behalf of an environmental cause.

You will learn and get to work online

You will work from home or anywhere, but your personal coach will agree and set a clear schedule. This will include online learning with a recognised provider that offers e-certificates. Then put your knowledge into practice with the help of your mentor. Crucially, this will involve implementing media campaigns. The campaign topics will suit both your own interest and the goals of the non-profit: anything from wildlife rescue to plastic pollution.

What will you gain:

– Practical skills in social media management
– Experience in social media planning and scheduling
– Excellent communication skills to influence and inform
– Practical experience in targeting an audience
– Efficient time management and working to set deadlines
– Training and mentoring from your personal Coach
– A reference letter and e-certificate
– Help with CV and job search

What do we need from you:

– Strong self-motivation
– Passion for nature and conservation
– Comfortable working independently
– Good writing and creative ability
– Willing to give and receive feedback
– Flexible and adaptable
