We’re looking for influencers to tell our stories!

Are you between 18 and 25 years old and keen to raise the profile of Scouting in SA? We are putting together a team of influencers from within all our Regions to tell our local Scouting stories online.

Training will be provided in brand awareness, how to represent Scouting, how to source and write local stories for online blogs and various social media platforms, online safety and what constitutes good imagery to portray Scouting in SA. The team would consist of at least 2 youths per Region. You would work together with your RTC Marketing or RC and the National Marketing team.

The job descriptions for the Regional Influencer role would be discussed and finalised during the training. However, it would include: a minimum of 2 blog posts (MOP/SDG related) and 2 social media posts per month to be written/shared, support for ad hoc requests in sourcing stories within your Scouting community as per SSA’s external media plan, and participation in tri-monthly virtual Marketing Committee meetings.

These Regional Influencer positions are to be undertaken on a voluntary basis.

To apply please email your Scouting CV, a short motivation why you want to help to raise Scouting’s profile and a contact number/email of a reference from within Scouting to info@scouts.org.za. Deadline for applications: 9 April 2021 – subject line influencer + Region.
