The successful applicant will work with a mentor and the Kid Sister team to develop and implement a social media publicity strategy across multiple platforms, as well as the collection and creation of content assets throughout production.

The applicant should have a good working understanding of audience connection across a range of contemporary platforms – Instagram and Tiktok experience are a must. Experience in photography and video creation are valuable. Some editing and/or design skills a real plus.

This paid opportunity offers on-the-job training including mentorship from a senior screen industry PR practitioner under the A to Z of Screen Publicity programme – a collaboration by Script to Screen and the Aotearoa Screen Publicists Collective which aims to increase representation amongst screen publicists.

The successful applicant will be paid a fee of $12,000 (NB: rates and time commitment will be negotiated with the successful applicant).
