Social Media Coordinator

Location: Kew, Greater London (Hybrid)

Salary expectation: £26,500 to £31,324

Application deadline: Wed 31st August

This is a full-time role

We are seeking a talented Social Media Coordinator to join the Digital Content and Engagement team at Kew. In this exciting role, you will work closely with the Digital Engagement Manager to manage and improve our digital communications and engagement across our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and other digital channels such as TripAdvisor and Google Business. You will be responsible for producing engaging content for Kew’s social media channels and managing and nurturing our online community.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (RBG Kew) is a leading plant science institute, UNESCO World Heritage Site, and major visitor attraction. Our mission is to understand and protect plants and fungi for the well-being of people and the future of all life on Earth.

We are working to end the unprecedented extinction crisis and to help create a world where nature is protected, valued by all and managed sustainably. We will achieve these goals by drawing on our leading scientific research, unrivalled collections of plants and fungi, global network of partners, inspirational gardens at Kew and Wakehurst, and our 260 years of history.

Join us on our journey as protectors of the world’s plants and fungi.

Every day is different at Kew — from shooting a beautiful area of the Gardens for a new Instagram Reel, to working with our publishing team to promote a new book.

You’ll have strong social media background with experience in producing engaging and creative content in a variety of formats. You’ll be able to work well under pressure, able to juggle competing priorities such as content creation and community management and be open to new ideas and approaches – staying up to speed with the latest trends. You’ll have an eye for detail and a nose for a story, helping us share the wonder of our beautiful gardens and our fascinating scientific work with a plant-passionate audience. You’ll also have some experience using data and insight to inform future content plans.

A passion for plants and fungi is a bonus!

This role is based at Kew with the option of regular home working, subject to operational requirements. The successful candidate will also be expected to travel to Wakehurst, when necessary.

Our fantastic benefits package includes opportunities for continuous learning, a generous annual leave entitlement, flexible working to help you maintain a healthy work-life balance, an Employee Assistance Programme and other wellbeing support such as cycle to work scheme and discounted gym membership. We also offer a competitive pension, an employee discount scheme and free entry into a wide range of national museums and galleries, as well as access to our own beautiful gardens at Kew and Wakehurst.

We are committed to equality of opportunity and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the essential criteria for the post.

Deadline: Wed 31st August
