Social Media Coordinator (Voluntary)

About Us

Australian Incupod is a podcast dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship across Australia. We invite guest interviewees from early stage startups to explore their learnings from starting a business venture and provide valuable insights to our listeners. As a newly founded podcast station, we are looking for individuals that are passionate about sharing the stories of others and committed to growing this young station.

We are currently a team of three based in a small office in West Melbourne. As a young team we don’t require lengthy resumes or cosmetic formalities but value commitment, hard-work and an ability to be flexible.

Key responsibilities but are not limited to:

Growing the organic reach of our social media channels

  • Facebook - writing bi-weekly posts, responding to comments, and increasing our page interactions and membership of relevant groups.

  • Instagram - creating bi-weekly posts and growing our number of followers.

  • LinkedIn - creating weekly posts, joining relevant community groups, and identifying potential interviewees.  

 

Contribute to the podcast’s overall strategic planning and growth

  • Identify key opportunities for growing our podcast audience.

  • Exploring new technologies and platforms to publish our content.

 

Who we are looking for?

We are looking for a self-motivated student in their penultimate year (or earlier) of university. You have an interest in growing businesses and the Australian start-up environment. You will be familiar with the functions, community engagement mechanisms and stylistic tweaks of popular social media channels and capable of delivering concise and engaging content.

You will largely work from home but require that you are able to attend our podcast recordings every fortnight. Due to the lack of public transport access to our office in West Melbourne, we prefer individuals that possess a valid driver's license and access to a motor vehicle. We expect a weekly commitment of 5-8 hours for this role.

 

What you get?

All positions at the Australian Incupod are voluntary. We do not offer any form of remuneration. You will gain invaluable experience in growing a newly founded podcast station and obtain unique networks with promising entrepreneurs. With good work and commitment we are more than willing to support your personal and professional endeavours, and provide you with references/letters of recommendation.

 

How to apply?

To apply, send a brief cover letter (no more than 500 words) and your professional resume to australianincupod@gmail.com. Feel free to send through any questions! If you are deemed a suitable candidate we will get back to you promptly for an interview.
