We’re looking for a Social Media Intern to join the Social and Creative team here at Switched On on a 1-3 day basis.

This role will give you the opportunity to get your foot into the door and put social media theory into practice. Working with a talented, multidisciplinary team, you will learn how to deliver successful social initiatives across our diverse and growing client portfolio.
