Deadline: 03 February 2019
The Republic is hiring a paid social media intern. Responsibilities will include developing social campaigns, optimizing The Republic’s web content for social media, and building and engaging with The Republic’s audience across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Our social media accounts not only are the face of our brand, but also play an integral role in how we intend to grow. Our ideal candidate is an organized multi-tasker who can manage content schedules across several social media channels. He or she:
⎈ has an undergraduate degree;
⎈ is a sharp, analytical writer (editorial experience is a plus);
⎈ thrives in a fast-paced environment;
⎈ has demonstrable online and offline networking skills;
⎈ is able to work remotely and independently while part of a team; and
possesses excellent communication skills.
An understanding and passion for social video, history and historical images/archives, politics, broader African affairs and aesthetics, is a must. Familiarity with WordPress, design and Adobe creative programs is a plus.
To apply, upload a CV and cover letter, including information about your social media handles if they are public. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to provide both written and practical responses to a case study, and to attend a face-to-face interview.
Applications close on the 3rd of February 2019, but apply early as we aim to fill the role before then.
This internship position is paid and open only to candidates based in Lagos. The internship starts as soon as possible, and will run for six months with potential to be extended. Interns are encouraged to work part-time (20 hours a week).
