The Social CEOs awards recognise the leaders who are pioneering use of digital and social media in the charity sector. Previous winners include the CEOs of NSPCC, Barnardo’s and Shelter and the awards reached 3 million+ on Twitter in 2019. 

We have much to learn about attracting and recognising more leaders who are people of colour and committed to making the awards more diverse. It’s really important to us that this is represented on the Social CEOs team . We particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are underrepresented throughout the charity sector.

Responsibilities include:

  • Writing promotional content for our social media channels 
  • Writing engaging blog posts, original and interview content
  • Reporting attendee numbers for our virtual awards event
  • Circulating nominations to judges 
  • Attending virtual judging ceremony and making an accurate list of the winners
  • Gathering information on winners’ social presences
  • Ordering event materials like winners trophies 
  • Arranging and editing acceptance videos by winners
  • Liaising with key stakeholders on the wider project

What we’re looking for 

We are looking for an intern who’s confident and creative with digital marketing and has some experience of writing content and measuring analytics. This is a fast paced project so you need to be organised, efficient, calm under pressure and good with people. 

You will work closely with us (Zoe and Matt, the awards’ founders) on the content for the awards and awards organisation. 

This internship will help you acquire charity digital marketing skills, get experience of working on a charity digital campaign and help you get to know leaders in the sector. 



  • A passion for charities and digital marketing
  • Strong desire to learn 
  • High levels of motivation and comfortable with remote working 
  • Good understanding of social media and digital marketing
  • Experience of writing and managing social media content

You do not need a degree to apply for this role. 


You’ll get plenty of guidance and support from Zoe and Matt, who will also be able to offer advice on how you can build your career in charity digital. 


This is around 7 days’ work across Sept-November 2020. Most work can be done flexibly around your other commitments but you must be available for the awards (which take place online on 12 November 3-5pm) and for the press launch the day after. 

Internship fee

This internship pays the London Living Wage, so the fee for the work is £602. You will be working remotely though and do not need to be based in London. 

How to apply

We are looking to recruit ASAP and will be interviewing on a rolling basis. Please send your CV to
