Social Media Internship

Do you have a passion for all things social? Are you a great storyteller? If so, read on.

We’re looking for a someone to join the SwitchDXB team on an internship to support the marketing team, working across our social media channels to create content, grow our audience & have fun in the process.


The Role



One of the key aspects of your role will be to get & stay on top of all things that are trending in Dubai & around the world - relative to the Switch brand & the industry in which we operate.

That’s right, we want you to spend part of your day, every day, conducting research by following new individuals and brands, engaging with content & understanding the reasons why posts are successful.

This research will fuel our own content strategy, so it’s important that you’re always one step ahead of the game.


Your role will entail the curation of content for publication on our social channels. This will include (but is not limited to):

  • Creating quote based imagery

  • Selecting imagery from our photography bank

  • Saving imagery from providers, partners & followers for re-posting

  • Visiting providers and partners to capture original / live content

It is important that you have a basic knowledge of Photoshop and other social content editing platforms, tools & apps.




A critical component of this role is communication - meaning that all social posts are correctly published and engagement managed. This means responding to comments, direct messages & new followers; to spark or continue a conversation.

The core objective of our social media strategy is to grow the awareness of SwitchDXB. This means first growing our social audiences, secondly increasing engagement with our audiences and finally, driving app downloads and in-app bookings/purchases.

At weekly all-team meetings, you will be required to give a high level overview of the week’s social media schedule, highlighting any particular successes from the previous week’s social media comms.

The Little Details

You must have fun throughout the whole process - working with the people you meet, the places you visit and the team you work with at Switch. We want your personality to be vibrant, dynamic and engaging - something that comes across in the day-to-day activities within your role.

You will be working in a small, but growing team - all of whom are committed to our mission of helping our community to live better.

You will be based at our office and out/about in Dubai (where/when required).

You must embrace many different forms of exercise, nutrition and wellbeing activities - it's part of our culture.

We will regularly participate in team activities and events - both related to Switch On & Switch Off.

Your working week will be Sunday to Wednesday, but sometimes you might be required to work Thursday’s or weekends, as mutually agreed beforehand.

The internship will last for a period of three months, with the possibility to extend. You will be paid 2,500 AED per month, to cover your travel & food costs.

We take a holistic and balanced approach to working - we want to get the best out of you, not the most.
