Role description

The Social Media Officer would be expected to attend and participate in committee meetings, offering opinions and ideas. The main task of the role is to create and maintain an active and dynamic online presence for the SNPC. The postholder may also collaborate with other members of the committee or CILIPS for specific campaigns.

This includes but is not limited to planning a weekly schedule of Tweets, monitoring Twitter for posts that would be interesting or relevant for the community, and collating job postings to share. Note that while posts may be planned ahead of time using Twitter’s schedule option or Tweetdeck, it may be useful to be available to access the account during the workday.

Applicants should be students or new professionals in Scotland, and we are especially interested in receiving applications from students at this time.
