Full Time
Circa is a London based start-up working on eliminating single-use packaging in the beauty industry, with an initial focus on travel miniatures. We enable travel miniatures to be re-filled and re-used. We will be launching with a 6 week pilot at a London Airport in December 2019. It is important to note that we are not a maker but an enabler, this means that we do not create the products and instead we work with existing brands.

Circla is part of the Sustainable Ventures accelerator and Better Futures program.

We are looking for an intern to develop our social media presence of the brand as we prepare for launch (mid October - mid November) and manage our social media during our 6 week pop-up (25th November - 10th Jan). The individual will be responsible for researching & creating engaging posts, monitor responses, grow the following & promote products. The person would also be responsible for taking & editing product / lifestyle photos and short videos.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is interested in or just started their career in social media or marketing. They will gain meaningful work experience as they will have an enormous amount of autonomy to drive the creative direction of the brand online. This is your chance to stamp your social media vision on a new & exciting business, gain experience working in a start-up and work for a truly purpose driven and sustainable company.
