triple j are working on a big TikTok strategy and you could run it
For social media savvy folks out there who want to be on triple j, the youth broadcaster is looking for someone to be their TikTok host.
It’s been a pretty big couple of weeks for Australia’s national youth broadcaster as it recently announced its new triple j Breakfast hosts for 2021 following the departure of Sally and Erica, as well as a little mix up with Twitter over a Kanye West tweet.
And now triple j seems to be working on a bold new strategy for its TikTok because it is looking for a new host.
ABC has posted up a new job opening for the position of triple j’s TikTok host, describing it as a “rare opportunity” to “create and present videos” as the face of triple j on TikTok, as well as helping to “shape the triple j TikTok editorial strategy.”
As for the type of person the youth broadcaster are looking for, here’s the description: “We’re looking for an experienced creator who knows the ins-and-outs of TikTok, is all over what’s trending, and has mastered the art of making people laugh in under 15 seconds. You’ll be across the latest in music scene and pop culture, have a history of creating great TikTok content and be comfortable presenting on camera.”
The role will be a full time contract position that will run from February to June 2021, and all applicants must be over 18.
For those interested in throwing their hat in the ring for this role, send through a self-recorded video and/or show-reel, links to your TikTok and Instagram accounts, and two pieces of triple j content for TikTok (one based on the Hottest 100 and one of your own choice) to the ABC via the role’s job page.
Applications close at 11:55pm on Sunday, 10th January, 2021, so there’s a bit of time to sharpen those hosting skills and get your social media (especially TikTok) profiles up to scratch.
