Job description

13 week Internship

Familiar with social media and good at creating engaging online content, you are looking for an opportunity to enhance your CV and do worthwhile work. Look no further than this internship with WWF. We are looking for an intern to help support the Earth Hour 2018 Wales campaign.

WWF’s Earth Hour focuses the world’s attention on our brilliant planet and how we need to protect it. It’s a unique annual event, whereby hundreds of millions of people turn off their lights for one hour, on the same night, all across the world, in a huge symbolic show of support. In 2018, it will take place at 8.30pm on Saturday 24 March.

Join our WWF Cymru team and provide project support to maximise awareness, engagement and influence with key audiences, including public audiences, businesses and others. You will gain valuable experience and build your expertise assisting with publicity and PR activities. This will involve copy-writing and content production for online and offline channels as well as helping with events, on-the-night activity and general marketing. You will compile project team updates and produce regular reporting for internal stakeholders.

You’ll also need to be comfortable to pick up the phone and speak with key businesses and organisations to secure their support for the campaign, while keeping track of progress.

Company information

WWF believes in a future where people and nature thrive.

Best known as the world’s leading conservation body, we’ve seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked.

That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change (through our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.

WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities here in the UK and around the world.

Person requirements

You must be familiar with the main social media platforms and have used them for an organisation or campaign. You will be able to demonstrate the ability to create high quality and engaging online content as well as edit images using Photoshop or similar software.

Highly organised and able to work to tight deadlines, you will possess good communication and PC skills as well as an understanding of environmental issues.

Experience of marketing communications and Welsh language skills would be an advantage.
