Deki Marketing & Communications Intern 

Are you a bright, enthusiastic and driven student/recent graduate looking to get experience in marketing, specifically in a charity environment? If so, Deki has the opportunity for you…

Position: Marketing Internship at International Development Charity 
Duration: 3+ months 
Part-time: 2-5 days a week 

Bristol-based charity Deki is a microfinance charity that empowers African entrepreneurs to work their way out of poverty by providing life changing loans and business training. Deki lenders can make loans from as little as £10 via our crowdfunding website, and 100% of all money lent goes directly to the chosen entrepreneur - lenders are paid back over the next 12 months.

People in developing countries often don’t have access to financial services to start their business. Yet these are honest, hard-working people motivated by the same things as most of us: they want to make something of their lives, feed their families and send their children to school. Deki’s vision is for a world of opportunity, not poverty.

We’re looking for a marketing intern, who is reliable, independent, highly motivated and creative to help us out with Digital Marketing responsibilities. The role will involve a variety of tasks to include help with social media, online marketing and email marketing – to grow and engage our supporters and convert them into Deki lenders. The successful intern will have a love for all things social media and of the latest social trends and technology.

The role is designed to provide a rewarding opportunity for anyone who is interested in gaining valuable experience and new skills to get into paid marketing or charity work. The ideal candidate will be available 2-5 days a week for a minimum of 3 months; however we can be flexible with regard to hours/days worked.

What we offer: 

         An opportunity to be part of an exciting, fast growing charity 

         Valuable professional experience and the opportunities for growth and development 

         The opportunity to make yourself more desirable to future employers 

         To be part of friendly team - based in Stokes Croft (near the centre of Bristol) 

         Reference upon leaving 

         Daily expenses to cover lunch and travel

Start date: as soon as possible.
