Social Media Intern

The MSF SA Digital Team plans, executes and actively manages online content, digital campaigns, social media and fundraising initiatives. The team is made up of two (2) to four (4) individuals- two (2) from the Communications Department and two (2) from the Fundraising Department.

We make data-driven decisions about which messages to share and where/when to share them. We are always looking for new ways to engage with the South African audience online and inspire them to act. We actively monitor and constantly vary our digital activities to best connect with our audience.
