Social Media Coordinator (Gloucester Green)


Based in a beautiful part of London, just 2 minutes walk from Hyde Park, and close to the V&A and the Natural History Museum, the Oxfam shop South Kensington is one of the busiest shops in London. Our aim is to fight poverty all around the world by raising as much money as possible by selling the items, which are donated to us.

Social Media Coordinator will help us to grow our online community and improve our communication with Oxfam supporters using social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. This opportunity will allow you to get retail experience, improve your IT and PR skills, and be a part of a great international team fighting poverty.

You'll be able to offer a minimum of 2 months, or longer. Ideally, you'll be able to offer a minimum of 4 hours a week (but, this can be flexible upon your availability).

Key responsibilities:

  • Creating and maintaining Facebook and Twitter.
  • Attracting more Oxfam supporters and customers.
  • Promoting special events and offers online.

Skills and competencies:

No previous experience is needed, so don't be afraid to apply. If you are successful, full training will be given. So if you have basic IT skills, want to help us to fight poverty, and consider yourself a reliable and responsible person, then this opportunity is for you.

Preferable skills are:

  • Ability to work independently.
  • Adaptable and flexible.
  • Willingness to undertake training as and when required.
  • Knowledge of or desire to learn more about Facebook and Twitter.

What this role can offer the volunteer:

  • This is an opportunity to help Oxfam's mission of achieving a just world without poverty.
  • Get training and operate as a Social Media Coordinator.
  • Improve your IT and PR skills.
  • Gain retail experience.
