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.
