  • We are committed to hiring staff and contractors who, in addition to possessing the desirable experience, values and skill sets, contribute to meaningful and intersectional representation among our team.

ACCOUNTABILITIES

  • Editorial Calendar Management

In collaboration with the Marketing and Communications Manager, you will design and execute on a monthly editorial calendar. This will include identifying key awareness dates and social media holidays, managing the content repository and rolling out brand messaging and promotions on various platforms including Instagram, Linked In, Youtube etc.

  • Content Curation and Creation

Content is Queen! You have your eye on the latest social media trends, learning which tools to monitor and make recommendations on how Fast and Female should create content and digital events that are of high value to our online audiences. That could mean blogs, that could mean Twitter chats, that could mean webinars, that could mean a podcast. Sometimes that means throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. We’re looking to add as much value to our audience as we can but don’t want to limit the creativity of our next teammate. Try new things, look at the analytics and let the results drive the strategy.

 

  • Social Media Engagement

You will be engaging with our target audiences online, including donors, athletes, parents/guardians/coaches of young girls in sports. That could mean via Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Clubhouse, etc. Question for us on Twitter? You’re able to respond in a timely manner. We’ve been tagged in a throwback photo on Instagram? You share a thoughtful comment that matches our organization’s tone of voice and encourages them to keep engaging.

 

  • Analytics and Reporting

Each social media platform has its own analytics dashboard and insights. You will learn how to keep track of key metrics, identify what this data is telling us about our online audience’s behaviour and interests, and constantly suggest updates to our social media and content strategy based on these insights. In collaboration with the Marketing and Communications Manager, we will develop monthly analytics presentations, summarizing the performance for the month, learnings and next steps.

 

  • Community Management

Act as a liaison between our digital community members and the internal team, you will listen to what is going on in the Canadian sports world in relation to girls and women in sports. That means immersing yourself in all things girls and women’s sports. That means identifying people of interest and influence in the sports world, researching and learning what they care about, and creating content (biweekly blog posts, weekly newsletters, daily social media) based on this.

BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH FAST AND FEMALE

Working with Fast and Female is a great opportunity to not only gain fundamental digital marketing and social media skills but also the chance to join forces with a team of women on a mission for social change and empowerment for self-identified girls.
