Social Media Assistant
Suitable for -
Signal supports people who are Deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus, in the UK and internationally. We aim to break down barriers to inclusivity. We do this by challenging perceptions and improving access to healthcare, education, employment and services.
As Social Media Assistant, you will be involved in writing and scheduling posts for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, keeping up to date with Signal’s work and promoting this across different channels. Our ideal volunteer will be fun loving and social media savvy as well as a great communicator in order to keep telling our story. You will also spend some time throughout the week responding to comments, particularly on Twitter. You must be confident using a variety of social media platforms and scheduling tools whilst being creative and proactive, with a keen eye for detail and alert to external events that can be linked to Signal. Prior experience in social media or marketing is desirable.
