Creative Assistant (Social Media & Web)

Animal Welfare Regular - more than 6 months New Town TAS

About this opportunity

The Ten Lives Creative Team As Tasmania's largest cat shelter we need to spread the word far and wide about what we do and showcase our kitties looking for their forever homes. If you've seen any of our stuff you'll know that our Marketing and Communications department does an amazing job. Headed by our Marketing and Communications Manager the team provides support to all areas of the organisation. This includes in-house generated collateral (posters, brochures, quarterly magazine) and all digital media (social media streams, video production and copywriting). The team produces engaging and professional content that is recognised throughout Hobart as being of an extremely high quality.

The Opportunity We need creative people to help us produce regular content for our website, newsletters, brochures, Instagram and Facebook. We are looking for people who have a writing and communications background or experience. You have the ability to recognise a good story and are able to see that ‘something special’ in an animal that might win someone’s heart. You will also oversee the daily updating of out "pet profiles" for our adoption page on our website, and Ten Lives TV. We also run other special education and outreach projects that need the talents of the creative team.

The Impact Since the introduction of our social media channels, we have seen a direct impact on levels of adoption (which have almost doubled). Our creative team helps to get our important messages and kitties for adoption out to a wide audience throughout Hobart and beyond. With over 18,000 subscribers, the importance of our talented creative team is central to our work. This role provides an excellent opportunity to gain hands on creative and marketing experience as well as contribute to our cats finding their forever home. This is a great role for those interested in adding to their portfolio or who would like to use their talent by giving back to a cause close to their heart.
