Support and training can be provided to create a range of digital marketing assets, including social media channel management, video production and editing, website & data administration.

The two roles are home-working, with an occasional requirement to attend the office in person or events / meetings.

  • Helping to create content planners for social media channels & help interact with followers.
  • Planning and executing videos, animation projects, GIFs and interactive graphics.
  • Administrating video and podcast channels.
  • Helping create direct marketing campaigns for the business and for clients when required.
  • Keeping communications database updated and compliant.
  • Uploading content to our/our clients’ websites.
  • Creating surveys & reports.

A candidate with largely marketing copy/copywriting skills will also be considered.

  • Some experience or a willing to learn all about creating video content.
  • Ability to use a PC.
  • Excellent organisational and coordination skills.
  • Communication & customer service skills.
  • Excellent attention to detail.
  • Great initiative.
  • A creative eye.

How you’ll work

The ability to travel to events when required, including those held in the evening (with travel expenses approved and funded by the employer).

As this is a home-working role, access to a computer, webcam, phone and the internet are essential requirements for this position.

Access to the relevant software will be given to the successful candidate.

We are happy to be flexible around when and where the successful candidate works, so long as events and the work is managed efficiently and effectively.

Working hours

Flexible working, to be agreed in advance with the Employer. Options to work Monday to Friday between 9 & 4pm, except for supporting the occasional in-person events in the evening/after 4pm.

Additional Employability Support

We have a working relationship with our gateway Welsh ICE & GoConnect, an education and training company based on-site who specialise in delivering engagement, employability, and digital skills training for young people within the target age group.

GoConnect will be working alongside all placements (unless the employer has demonstrated a capability to deliver the same quality training in-house) offering weekly workshops and holistic support to ensure all young people are offered valuable work-based training. Workshops will be delivered on the areas identified in the requirements (attendance, timekeeping, communication, teamwork, travelling to work, CV, and interview skills, looking for work) as well as further key skills including digital literacy, confidence building, problem solving, decision making and mental health.

We will also be working with other partners to offer specialist workshops and help as requested by participants and to further support underrepresented groups. Based on past engagements we expect mental health training and coping mechanisms to be popular as well as introductory sessions on digital marketing, branding, design, and coding. All employers have signed an agreement releasing staff to attend these sessions at least bi-weekly and GoConnect have already started planning their delivery.
