Social Responsibility Intern

Viacom International Media Networks

Aug 2015
  • As MTV's Social Responsibility Intern I work across number of sub-divisions: The MTV Staying Alive Foundation - Within MTV’s HIV prevention charity I have implemented and am am currently co-managing a new fundraising initiative based around university students. I have overseen a number of new campaigns and events as well as completing grant applications and managing and writing content for the MTV Staying Alive blog. MTV Life - Within MTV's international content team I worked with the Social Responsibility Content Editor to launch a new tab on the MTV website dedicated to pro-social content. I devise monthly content plans for written and video content including interviews with high profile talent, long-form articles and outsourced guest blogs. I ensure that each piece was written/produced either by me or the base of contributors to the site. I also cover reactive news stories as they happen as a part of the wider news team. MTV Breaks - I worked on logistics and coordination on the ground at last years European Music Awards as well as assisting with the running of a number of workshops and sessions around the event. I also devise and create video and written content revolving around getting young people their first break within a wide range of industries for online and on air.
