Our social media followers are engaged and active, and we want to make sure they are heard and engaged with after-hours. We’re looking for someone to commit to working Friday – Sunday to keep our online communities on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn safe, supportive, friendly and engaging spaces after hours.
In this role, you’ll be moderating and responding to comments, ensuring all messages receive our after hours message, hiding or deleting things that aren’t acceptable and posting content from our schedule. You’ll get to know our mahi, learn how we talk, answer questions about our programmes and projects and provide feedback about our policy and advocacy positions.
We don’t expect or want you to provide counselling services – we’re not a service provider – but you will be hearing from people all around Aotearoa with all kinds of mental health experiences, and sometimes their stories can be hard to hear, so we do ask you to consider that before applying. Most often, the people who talk to us are inspiring, motivating, awesome individuals who believe in our work and want to share why it matters to them.
- Are available and reliably at the weekends (times negotiable) - please note, we don’t expect you to be working constantly during these hours, you can expect to be moderating MHF channels for up to 15 minutes at a time within these hours.
- Can attend one team meeting per month during business hours over Zoom
- Are comfortable managing social media, with experience with Facebook Business Manager and Instagram Pages
- Have a strong sense of empathy
