Flexible Role with THMs

We’re looking for a NEW editorial and social media assistant to help out with Tower Hamlets Mums online magazine and platforms.

Not ready to go back to work after children? Fancy a flexible role to work part-time around your kids? Perhaps you are parent, nanny or au pair who is looking to broaden your skill set and gain experience working for an online magazine?

This is a role that requires a person who loves being out and about in the borough and has the potential and the desire to develop editorial and marketing skills. Please find further details below and get in touch if you think this could be you:

The Opportunity:

To provide editorial assistance and social media support to TowerHamletsMums.com from home reporting to the Editor.

TowerHamletsMums.com is an online information portal designed to help families make the most of living in the area.

The website takes on the style of an online magazine with a calendar of events, articles on activities, child-friendly shops, services, schools & special deals for local mums with the free Tower Hamlets Mums Membership Card.

Would suit someone who;

  • Knows and visits playgroups, classes and family events
  • Wants to share their knowledge of the best things to do in the area
  • Would like to work from home
  • Is interested in marketing and enjoys writing about different topics
  • Believes in the strength of community and wants to take a more active role

Previous knowledge or experience in direct marketing, fundraising, copywriting or social media would be highly desirable but don’t let it hold you back if you don’t have any. Some demonstrable skill or interest will suffice. Applicants will be required to write up a round-up feature of the top 5 events happening in the borough to demonstrate local knowledge and writing ability.

What’s required to run the site:

Adding to and keeping current content up-to-date on WordPress

Speaking to local businesses regarding listings and deals for local mums and advertising

Writing features and looking for interesting things to write about

Assist with social media scheduling and posting to local mums groups
