Knowle West Media Centre is excited to be part of the Kickstart Scheme.
Kickstart is funded by the Government and jobs from the Kickstart Scheme are open to 16-24 year olds, who are claiming Universal Credit, and are at risk of long-term unemployment.
Knowle West Media Centre is working in partnership with Koreo, the UK social change sector’s Kickstart gateway, as part of a collaborative effort to power up our sector with exceptional talent and make a real impact on youth unemployment. We are currently looking to recruit a Social Media and Communications Assistant.
This Kickstarter role includes a supported development programme delivered by Koreo and training by Knowle West Media Centre. The programme will equip you with the connections, experiences, tools and insight needed to succeed at work, help you to build a peer community of fellows and give you the skills to transition beyond the placement, and position yourself well for a career that is socially impactful.
The Social Media & Communications Assistant will use digital tools and digital platforms to raise awareness of KWMC and its work, attract new audiences, and build positive relationships with a range of people. Central to the role is working with the KWMC team to gather stories and creative content to be shared on KWMC’s social media platforms (including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn), on websites and in e-mail marketing campaigns.
Our ideal candidate is someone who values both people and processes: who enjoys engaging with people and understanding what inspires and motivates them, and is also highly organised with strong attention to detail.
