Communications Internship opening at Communitree

May 29, 2019

This internship position is all about communications: from social media to e-mail, and from coordinating volunteers to keeping our partners up-to-date. We are looking for someone who is experienced using a number of online tools and applications, and who is great at personal communication. The activities involve:

  • Posting updates to our social media accounts
  • Answering e-mails from our volunteers
  • Reaching out to our volunteers to request photos, information or other details
  • Responding to people on Whatsapp and posting information to our volunteer Whatsapp groups
  • Coordinating meetups, plant pickups, deliveries of plants, or other activities
  • Writing news articles for our website, to be shared with our partners and collaborators as well as the general public
  • Editing of photos and creating other visual material to be used for our communications
  • Joining our gardening activities at least once a week

This is a joint internship together with our friends at Metabolism of Cities, with whom we share an office. The Communications Intern would engage in similar activities for Metabolism of Cities.

Experience in urban greening or ecology is not a requirement, but we do need you to be passionate about the environment!

This is a full-time position based at our offices in Rosebank. We provide a transportation stipend of R3,500 per month for this internship position.
