Art Radar seeks part-time Admin and Social Media Intern (paid internship) – 6 months

Administrative and Social Media Intern – Contemporary art publishing

Art Radar, one of the leading online platforms covering contemporary art news and trends in Asia and beyond, is seeking a paid Intern to work on ongoing administrative and social media tasks.

There may be an opportunity for career progression at the end of 6 months for the right candidate. Previous Interns have gone on to take up writing and managerial positions within Art Radar.


The Art Radar Intern will ideally be a Journalism or Arts graduate with an understanding of online publishing, social media, and a passion for contemporary Asian art. Reporting to the Editor, the Intern will be responsible for:

  • Editorial Assistance: updating our curated listings of employment opportunities and art events. The Opportunities page is updated weekly and each week we publish a new article listing the latest opportunities and those that are about to expire. You will need to source new opportunities online, update the page, create new pages for new opportunities, and create a weekly post to advertise new opportunities. The Events page is updated every fortnight.
  • Social media: researching, creating and maintaining new platforms and strategies, supervised by the Editor. A candidate with prior experience in social media marketing and/or a strong social media presence is desirable.
  • General administrative and editorial tasks as necessary. These may include assisting with Art Radar’s ongoing projects or copy editing articles for the weekly newsletter. Tasks will be agreed upon mutually by Art Radar and the Intern.


For this position, you must

  • have a tertiary-level education
  • have a background in art history, contemporary art, the art market or a related field (desirable but not essential)
  • have native-level English language ability, written and spoken
  • be familiar with SEO and SMO strategies
  • be familiar with social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and LinkedIn
  • be able to quickly find information using on- and off-line research methods
  • be familiar with the WordPress platform
  • have reliable access to the internet and your own computer
  • be willing to commit to regular hours each week

This role will be for an initial period of 6 months, and will entail 8-12 hours a week (estimate) once the Intern is fully trained. However, for the right candidate this role may expand to include further, undecided tasks, so a candidate with the ability to take on more work/hours is strongly desired and will be given preference.


The Intern will be paid a base rate of USD100 per month.
