Your role with SNV

As our Global Social Media Intern, you are part of the Marketing, Communications, and Public Affairs (MCPA for the friends) team.

Besides managing our content calendar, you will also engage with our social media community, responding to messages, and ensuring that our audience feels valued and heard. By interacting with our audiences, you will gain valuable insights into their thoughts and opinions, which you can then use to make decisions about the content you create.

We will also be looking to you to help us collect and analyse performance and behavioural data to help us drive improvements.

You will have your day-to-day tasks, but each day will bring new and exciting projects and the potential to learn and co-create with our team.

  • Daily monitoring of our digital space, responding to comments, messages, and queries on our social media channels.
  • Researching emerging trends in social and digital media content that our social channels can leverage.
  • Identifying stakeholders, partners, donors, beneficiaries, and colleagues who could be potential content contributors and/or SNV ambassadors.
  • Helping analyse content metrics to inform and report on initiatives.

  • Interest in storytelling, with a visual eye and experience in digital content creation, graphic design and/or videography/video editing.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to tailor messages and content to specific audiences.
  • A quality-focused and proactive approach to work, with project management skills, a focus on deadlines and a commitment to continuous learning and improvement.
  • A creative and innovative mindset and team player, enthusiastic about co-creating and co-building together, with high levels of self-motivation and resilience.
  • Fluent in English, both written and spoken; knowledge of French is an advantage.
