About Pride in London

Pride in London means many things to many people, it belongs to our community and it
belongs to you; come and join the conversation! Forty-six years since the first Pride march in London, Pride in London has a renewed sense of purpose to highlight the challenges still facing the LGBT+ community today despite progress. We are run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity and are drawn from all walks of life; together we create the UK’s biggest free LGBTQ+ community event every year. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow all of our community to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing.

Around 150 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class
Pride. We welcome applications from everybody, and are especially keen to attract new
volunteers from the BAME, Trans, Bi, Non-binary and Queer communities who we would
love to see more widely represented in our organisation.

The Team
The Communications team are the public facing voice of Pride in London. We deliver
content, PR, social media, political engagement, talent management and internal
communications. Our job is to spread our message internally and externally.
The Social Media Team sits within this and oversees all social media channels including
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Snapchat.

Role responsibilities
We are looking for Social Media Managers to help community manage and develop content

This is a highly collaborative role where you may be working alongside our PR, Content,
Community Engagement and Media Partnerships team. You will also connect outside of the
Communications Team, supporting key events such as our Pride Festival, and of course the
Parade, which brings over 30,000 people together in the heart of London.

Your Responsibilities:
This role will require anywhere between 5-15 hours per month, with slightly more in the
month leading up to Pride. We have Communications team meetings on a few Saturdays in
the month in Central London and this role would require your participation in these as

● Creating content including video, images, gifs and copy across our channels
● Acting as brand guardians, learning and building on our tone of voice
● Being aware of potential crises and issues and overseeing our social listening tools
● Integrating across teams to deliver content that will support different strategic
● Helping to deliver a response protocol system for queries

Who you are:
Ideally you will have experience of developing content and community management from
your day job and you wish to apply this to one of the biggest LGBT platforms in the country.

The things we are looking for:

● Creativity - the ability to develop creative and engaging content in various social
media formats
● Collaboration - a track record of collaborating with different stakeholders in the
communications spectrum
● Adaptability - the ability to be flexible and adapt to the constant change in social
media platforms and content to suggest new ways for us to develop our presence
● Organisation - someone who isn’t scared of building a complicated content calendar
that has to support various needs
● Positivity - the ideal candidate will have experience of remaining positive and
bringing energy and new ideas to the team
What we offer
Volunteering for Pride in London can be a life changing experience. Alongside professional
growth, our volunteers also benefit from:
● Induction and training on what it means to be a volunteer
● Meeting new people and broadening their networks
● Being part of the biggest Pride movement in the country
● Helping to develop award winning work

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
