Job Opportunities at Play & Go Adelaide

Are you a Play & Go parent who enjoys getting out with the kids and is regularly on our website looking for fun activities and events? Do you want a flexible part-time position working from home to fit in with your family life? You can read more about Play & Go and what we’re all about here.

You may be interested in either or both of these positions available.

Content Editors

Play & Go is growing and we’re looking for some new team members to help us find and select the best events and activities for Adelaide families. We understand that an event which is geared towards adults, but has one face painter in the corner (which means waiting 45 minutes for your turn), would not qualify as a Play & Go family event. It will be your job to evaluate and find events and activities that interest our Play & Go readers. We love fun stuff, and even better if it involves getting outdoors and some active family play.

The ideal candidate will have strong written and communication skills with excellent English, spelling, grammar and an eye for detail.

It will suit someone who is savvy on social media and already spends time on Facebook. In fact you may already see and hear about loads of family events through your newsfeed, on the radio or in the press.

Great for someone who has a little bit of time uninterrupted during school hours or in the evenings after the kids are in bed.

The role will involve:

  • The ability to work independently and as a team player, to meet deadlines.
  • Finding and republishing events from event organisers’ sites.
  • Formatting material provided to us by advertising clients or submissions for free listings, using WordPress, including image selection and resizing.
  • Excellent communication skills as you liaise with event organisers, clients, Account Managers, giveaway suppliers and winners, plus other team members, predominantly by email and by phone.
  • Writing reviews and taking photos of places or events you’ve visited with your children.
  • Uploading and scheduling Facebook posts.
  • Loading and scheduling side banner ads and listings for client advertising campaigns.
  • Understanding of SEO principles and how to develop content to grow organic search would be an advantage but training will be provided.
  • Previous digital content production and social media experience a distinct advantage.
  • General office admin skills including Word, Excel, Outlook, Picasa.
  • If you have a blog or website yourself, please send us a link of your work.
  • You will need your own computer and good internet connection to work remotely from home.
  • This is a contractor position so an ABN will be required.
  • Number of hours are negotiable (from 2 to 3 hours per day, 1 to 3 days per week).
  • Remuneration is negotiable, commensurate with experience.
