Job description

Role brief

After our recent crowdfunding investment raise, we have hit a fast-growth stage within the business. We are looking for someone to join our marketing team to supercharge our digital marketing. The ability to make data-driven decisions and get creative in solutions is what our team needs to take us to the next level. Our small head-office team is based in an idyllic market town in sunny Suffolk, UK. However, our business also operates in Kenya and India and has a growing distribution network in many other countries.

About the role

Working within our small marketing team and reporting predominantly to our Digital Communications Officer, you will explore, analyse and review our current digital marketing platforms through a series of projects.

Proposed projects for internship (subject to change):

  • Reviewing, analysing, updating and creating a future strategy for our YouTube channel which has seen a lot of organic growth recently.
  • Review and update website ‘evergreen’ blog content as part of our SEO strategy.
  • Help analyse digital marketing KPIs to support future decisions over content and strategy.
  • Involvement in scheduling and planning social media content.
  • Contribute to our email marketing campaigns.

What you will learn: 

  • Experience of working in a fast-paced and international start-up.
  • Practical experience with current marketing and advertising techniques.
  • Opportunity to shape and improve our digital marketing processes.

About you

No previous marketing training required, but the ability to jump into a task and take ownership of learning, thinking of solutions and communicating back to the team both verbally and through documentation is necessary.

Helpful but not essential:

  • Management of multiple branded social media accounts.
  • Content creation for social media.
  • Use of Adobe software (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop).

As we are a start-up, experience in being adaptable and willing to take on additional tasks when required is key.


This is a full-time role for 12 weeks.
