About Theo + George:
Theo+George is a contemporary womenswear brand founded in 2013 that creates luxury garments made from the finest materials and produced with quality craftsmanship available online at theoandgeorge.com. We are currently in the midst of a full rebranding and expansion with our sights set on multinational goals. The brand is being re-launched in July/August 2017 and we are in need of an extra set of hands to help us reach our goals!
This is an exciting opportunity for someone with a startup/entrepreneurial spirit to join our small but experienced team in Dublin 4 (Ringsend). This is a great opportunity to get real hands-on experience within the startup environment. We operate in a fast-paced environment where no two days are the same, which means that you’ll have the potential to learn something new every day and your participation will make a lasting impact. However, your primary responsibilities will be to create, curate, and managing our social media presence.
Our ideal candidate will also have a strong interest in fashion design and who would be willing to help design future collections for the brand. Although, this could be a separate internship opportunity.
We are a very small team, so this internship will be hands-on, will involve many aspects of the business and require a substantial amount of responsibility from you. However, there could be potential to become a full-time and paid member of the team.
Initiate and take full responsibility for social media campaign.
Write a weekly blog post on topics related to our brand (we’ll give you guidance on what to write about as well as editing help).
Research social posts, plan monthly calendar, yearly calendar and introduce actions to achieve growth month upon month.
Report key metrics on a weekly basis and create an action plan from the results.
Work to develop PR and brand awareness through building relationships with bloggers, creative collaborations and other social media influencers.
Assist with various project organization and delivery.
Possibility of working some hours in a Dublin-based pop-up shop (retail environment).
As we are a small start-up other tasks may be assigned to you involving the day to day running of the company.
Let us know if there are any other areas of the business that you would like to be involved in!
Be fluent in both written and spoken English.
Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
Enthusiastic and highly motivated.
Punctual and committed.
Capable of thinking creatively and solve problems independently.
Be skilled in different Social Media / blog platforms. Ideally an active participant in social media.
Experience with photo editing software such as Photoshop and basic design capabilities (Adobe Creative Suite) for social media is a plus but not essential.
Understanding of women’s contemporary market and keen eye for merchandising and design is a definite plus.
Immediate start and available to work at least 2-3 days per week.
Unpaid (with potential to develop into a paid position).
While the founder and partner(s) will of course be happy to provide some guidance, be prepared to work in a semi-unsupervised and self-motivated manner.
