This essential role supports the promotion of the North's events and actions through social media.
These channels usually have lead times, in other words, you would be able to prepare posts in plenty of time to publicise our events.
We can provide training for this role.

Here are the main tasks involved:
- support and coordinate the team of social media handlers for Instagram, Facebook, X (Twitter) ensuring posts are regular, of good quality and appropriate so we increase followers.
- monitoring an email inbox and forwarding media requests appropriately.
- Sharing posts yourself to act as a communication link between the North region and the social media team.
- supporting the media reps for local groups around the North to learn and develop their skills.
- Managing our Facebook page.

As the Media team Coordinator, you will maintain oversight of what's going on within the region, keep tabs on new media requests, and update members of the media team so that media requests are fulfilled, whether that's publicising upcoming events, covering ongoing campaigns and actions, or reporting other news.
Our Media team is small but growing and if you'd like to help support our fabulous media volunteers in the North in this way, we'd love to hear from you!
