DriveTribe is looking for an intern to join its social media team.

Are you obsessed with motoring? Are you looking to learn the ropes of publishing and social media distribution at a fun, fast-paced start up?

DriveTribe is looking for an enthusiastic Social Media Intern to join our London office as soon as possible and help run our social accounts in the exciting and frequently changing car industry.

Based in Moorgate, DriveTribe is the new social media platform aimed at petrolheads founded by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

Having assembled an Audience Growth Team made up of some of the industry's top social media minds, our audience base is growing at an incredible rate. We are now after someone who has a good grasp of social media, but is willing to learn more.

The role will involve learning creative and distribution strategies on social media platforms, as well as eventually managing the day-to-day running of some of the smaller accounts in our social distribution network.

You will be working in the fun, bustling office of this start-up company where you will earn the London living wage (£10.20p/h). The ideal candidate will be someone who can work well in a small team and quickly connect with our audience.

What you will learn:

* How social media strategies are created

* How to tailor articles for dedicated Facebook audiences so they're compelled to share them

* How to create multimedia content that is highly engaged with by the audience

* Analysing social media strategies and individual posts

* Reporting progress through use of analytics and stats

What we require:

* Knowledge about how media organisations use social media and how to use them yourself

* Making content on DriveTribe shareable on Facebook and our other social media platforms

* Good communication

* Ability to spot what content/stories would do well on DriveTribe’s social media accounts

* Willingness to work as a team and be self-critical

* Have a good understanding and passion for cars and motoring

Working at DriveTribe is an exciting opportunity where you will work with senior and experienced staff in the worlds of motoring and social media.

You will learn a lot about social media strategies and have opportunities to work with some of the leading names in motoring journalism and online media.

Role Breakdown:

Your primary role will initially be sourcing the best content from the DriveTribe community, and posting that content to our social accounts.

* Finding/creating content on DriveTribe and on our Facebook pages

* Write Facebook posts in our desired tone and in order to maximise engagement

* Report regularly on what is working and what isn’t, and come up with recommendations for how we can improve our social media strategy

* Stay up to date with contemporary motoring news and culture

* Make sure that we maintain a reputation for factual accuracy in what we post

* Help out with other social media accounts, as and when directed

The position runs for three months, and you will be paid the London living wage.

You must be able to work in the UK.

Applications close on 05/03/18.

  • This is a really exciting opportunity and a chance to learn from some experts in this field. I'd jump at the chance to do this, but I genuinely couldn't afford to commute to London for £10.20 an hour. Pity! I envy the lucky sod who gets to do this though! :)

  • This sounds like a paid ambassador.

  • I'm ready to work for DT. I spent so many time on the social medias as writer, blogger, founder of a FB group and a community manager without forgetting to be a press manager for an association for 7 years now. I hope to be a good ambassador on DT too.

    • Exactly. Isn't the job description the same as what an ambassador does?

    • I think this is a really good next step for anyone who has been an ambassador. The main difference is that it's full time, and if this person does well in this three month internship, it's likely they'd get a job to work in our London office full...

  • I wish. I’m too young to have a job and commuting to England from where I live is a 13 hour flight

  • That could be fun indeed. Do I get to piss of Hammond and May?
