Social Media & Web Content Intern
Exciting opportunity to support the social media presence of a new charity.
Excellent opportunity to work with a young, innovative charity called Link Up (UK). We deal with issues of citizenship by developing projects that promote a sense of community and belonging. Our flagship Great British Community project (GBC) takes a truly innovative approach to this arena, combating racism and prejudice by highlighting the benefits that diversity has brought to the UK.
Throughout British history, diversity has added to the identity and make up of Britain today. Whether our language, or music and foods which have come from different communities but have been absorbed into the British identity – diversity has truly benefited this country.
The GBC will be a fully interactive programme using social, tradtional media and the internet to get this message across to the widest audiences.
