WANTED! Social media ninja
Join the TOPIA Team
Do you care passionately about our planet? Are you a curious and playful social media expert? We have an exciting new creative opportunity
TOPIA is looking for an experienced Content Creator/Community Manager based in the UK or Europe who has a positive outlook and sense of humour, thinks both creatively and analytically – and is motivated to make a difference.
TOPIA is an independent new digital magazine that is packed with matters that impact everyone, from design to conservation. It’s for anyone who has ever wondered just what this mind-bender of a universe is all about, or wants to be entertained with deeply interesting and inspiring stories.
Our small team (with a big heart) is on a mission to shine a spotlight on the remarkable people – and creatures – keeping our planet cool. We want to engage creative and curious minds in what’s important by telling incredible stories with editorial integrity.
We love words, pictures, animations, videos and developing original content to share through our online magazine site, popular newsletter, and social media accounts. We launched in March 2022 and have small but highly engaged audience – and now we need you to help us grow.
In this role, you will be both working to create original and targeted social media strategies with the TOPIA Team – as well as managing the social accounts of positive impact projects with our creative agency partner, Theobald Fox. We are a fun, authentic and collaborative team based in London, Barcelona and Tokyo.

You operate ethically, honestly and with high integrity. You’re smart, with a wicked wit, and know how to make people feel positive and emotionally connected. You are adaptable in style when it comes to creating exciting content and can translate a strong and consistent tone of voice across various style guidelines.
