Every year, Women in Journalism offer one Social Media Internship.
The intern assists our administrator Kate McMillan in updating and improving our website; helping to manage our Twitter account, which was 12,000 followers, keeping an eye on a LinkedIn group, attending various events throughout the year and writing blog posts for our website.
In return, we pay our intern £100 a month plus expenses, a year’s free membership and free tickets to all of our events. The intern also takes her place on our committee, which meets about three times a year, making this, in particular, a brilliant way of boosting personal development and enhancing contacts among our membership.
At the end of the internship, which is initially for one year, we will provide a reference and any further support needed.
