This individual will work with the Executive Director, Executive Assistant, and Communications Manager to create near daily, engaging social media content across five social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and TikTok). Content to be captured will range from photos/video of live Bayfront concerts, to 4th of July firework displays, to trade shows, to weddings. We approximate this to be 95% of the role. It is our hope to create not only authentic content, but when possible, live content as well.

If you are reading this right now and thinking, “Wait…am I paid to attend events?”, the answer is yes. We may even ask you to go backstage.

Social media assistants can expect to work approximately 20-30 hours per week. It is our intent to cover seven days of activities, with many events taking place at night and on weekends. There will be coverage needed for weekend hours, weeknights, as well as the typical 9 to 5.
