Social Media Ambassadors

What is a Social Media Ambassador?

A Social Media Ambassador is someone who will help generate a positive presence for Kinergy online. Ambassadors will help us engage with individuals and organisations online, and will spread the word about Kinergy's work - and the impact of sexual violence within society. You will help us promote events and spread news about our services through the use of online social networks (such as Facebook and Twitter).

Why does Kinergy need Social Media Ambassadors?

Social media channels allow us to communicate all kinds of information, and we need to ensure our message is getting to the right people in order to promote our charity.

Activities will include:

- Promoting events and activites throughout the year.
- Communicating news about our services.

We hope that you will be keen to share many of our posts, however, we understand that not all posts will be relevant to you or your audience. Where possible, we would ask that you share information and posts that you believe will resonate with your audience in a positive manner. You would also be welcome to take part in our events and live tweet these using our hashtags.

How will you fit in with our organisation?

As an Ambassador you will be officially regarded as a volunteer of Kinergy, which looks good on your CV and you will be entitled to receive our e-newsletters.

How should I respond to online interactions?

You will be asked to work within Kinergy's Social Media Policy framework.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need thousands of followers to become a SMA?

- Nope! We value quality over quantity.

Do I need to be active on all forms of social media?

- Nope! We recognise that many people are not on multiple social networking platforms and we would rather you use the network with which you are most comfortable and familiar.

What is the commitment required?

- In all, this would likely be less than a few hours a month. But we're happy for you to chip-in whenever you can.

Can I introduce a friend as an Ambassador?

- Of course! The more Ambassadors we have, the better! We would, however, ask that your friends be interested in the work we do and support our aims.

You can email us at: contact@kinergy.org.uk, or message us on Facebook or Twitter.
