About GROW:

GROW works in schools and communities to promote mental well-being, physical health and a more hands-on relationship with the natural world. From yoga to farming, philosophical thinking to boxing, GROW’s especially designed programme gives young people the skills, knowledge and confidence to think beyond their day-to-day routines.

Since launching our pilot scheme at The Totteridge Academy, North London in May 2019 GROW has started a first school, built a community farm and rolled out a full programme to 300 students per week as part of the curriculum. Our aim is to see GROW become second nature, as normal in a young person’s day as a maths lesson or football practice.

We are looking for a Creative Assistant to join our friendly team. Responsibilities include managing our social media accounts and taking and editing photos and videos. If you want to kickstart your creative career and are familiar with image or video editing software, we’d like to meet you!

Ultimately, you will help us build and maintain a strong and cohesive brand both online and offline.


Duties and responsibilities:

  • Manage our social media accounts. This includes YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and Twitter

  • Photography and videography, documenting all GROW activities

  • Editing photos and videos for internal and external use

  • Research and recommend new ideas for strengthening our brand

  • Help design promotional material for events, like brochures and videos

  • Prepare content for internal use (like guidelines and glossaries)

  • Write copy for marketing and communication material, including press releases and infographics

  • Coordinate with team members to gather images, logos, stats and content to use in various creative projects
