Social-media intern needed

About us

Sex Matters is a UK-based not-for-profit organisation. We campaign, advocate and produce resources to promote clarity about sex in public policy, law and culture. We have a singular mission: to re-establish that sex matters in rules, laws, policies, language and culture.

What we’re looking for

We are looking for a passionate and creative individual with experience in working on social-media platforms including TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.

The social-media intern will assist with our strategy to extend Sex Matters’ reach on digital platforms, particularly TikTok, and to reach new audiences.

You will work with our team of staff and volunteers to develop and schedule content across all our social-media channels, taking a “social first” approach to developing content that gets us out of the “gender-critical bubble”. 

A key project is to lead the development of our TikTok channel, shooting short-form video and generating new ideas for content. 

What you’ll do 

  • Work closely with the executive director and the head of marketing to develop our TikTok channel and content for other social platforms 
  • Work to increase our presence on existing platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn 
  • Develop and edit short films and graphics
  • Set up, launch, and monitor advertising campaigns on the TikTok Ads Manager platform
  • Track, analyse, and report on campaign performance

Ready to join? 

If you’re ready to embark on an exciting journey and take your social-media skills to the next level, we want to hear from you! 

We’d like you to send us:

  1. A compelling cover letter telling us why you want to work with us and what you would bring to the role and team
  2. Your CV: 
    • This can include your personal social-media experiences
    • Include your handles and any examples you would like us to see  
  3. A video showcasing your skills in video production: 
    • Choose some content from our YouTube channel
    • Create a 90-second video
    • Think about the title, captions and hashtag, music and sound and the call to action – to be aligned with the tone and theme of our brand
    • Let us know how you think this video can help viewers connect with our brand and content
    • Note: Please include your name in the video filename so we know whose video is whose
