  • have illustration experience;
  • have an interest in working across multiple social platforms.

Over the course of the programme you will learn how to create shareable social content. This includes writing and editing posts tailored to BuzzFeed's audience, and exploring how people share on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and other social sites. Buzzfeed are looking to hire a small group of fellows for a three month period —  these will be paid positions based in our London office.
