Posted 12 Jul 2018

Closes 11 Aug 2018

Do you want to put your storytelling skills to the test? Wanna create content that dominates the social media airwaves?

Social Garden is looking for a super keen writer interested in learning all about the world of content marketing, social media and SEO. We’re also excited to introduce them to real skills, with access to clients and goal-setting for their time with us!

Social Garden is a haven for driven, ambitious performers who want to collaborate with designers and writers across our digital content team. With a focus on higher education and property markets, they’ll receive niche experience to give you an edge post-internship.


Welcome to the Sprout Program

Sprouts are immersed in all day-to-day functions of the digital content team. Across various content disciplines, interns learn multiple areas of the business.

In the world of SEO, sprouts get a handle of:

  • Blogging
  • On- and off-page SEO
  • Technical SEO
  • SEO audits
  • Google Analytics and reporting


To fine-tune their writing skills, they also get a whirlwind tour of conversion rate optimisation, landing page copywriting and advertising copywriting.

Social media is a key part of the business, and we offer an overview of everything about community management. More than just Facebook likes, we give an insight into:

  • Social media strategy, moderation and analytics
  • Audience creation and targeting
  • Reporting

With so much to learn, you’ll be able to put your new skills to the test with a supportive team behind you. Our in-house marketing efforts will show you just how multi-channel and content distribution strategies work, preparing you to confidently make your mark in industry.

Why Social Garden?

Social Garden is committed to delivering a valuable learning experience that can jumpstart future careers, either with us or elsewhere in marketing. Interns can expect to have a well-rounded and focused position over three months, with specific opportunities that include:

  • Potential career springboard: bring your A game and you might be offered a full-time position
  • Executive support: our team is here to mentor you and develop your creative skills, from the most senior people in the company
