Sounds great! But why on earth are you called Happy Yolk!?

Eggcellent question! 😉 Put simply, the founders of Happy Yolk - Alissa, CJ and Chris - came together to launch World Record Egg, a campaign to achieve the most-liked picture on Instagram. We succeeded in 10 days, beating Kylie Jenner’s record of 18 million likes… and went on to launch a global Super Bowl mental health campaign.

In 2022, the egg was scrambled by Messi’s World Cup winning Instagram post. To say we’re not egg-cited by a fresh opportunity to create internet history again would be an understatement… so watch this space! 

The Role

Happy Yolk is thrilled to offer an exciting opportunity for an incredibly creative, ambitious, motivated, and enthusiastic intern to join our rapidly expanding Social and Influencer team. 

As a valuable member of our team, you will be actively involved in generating and curating engaging content for both our brilliant clients and Happy Yolk's own social media platforms.

In this role, you will immerse yourself in the latest TikTok and Instagram trends, ensuring that we stay ahead of the game by producing engaging, relevant, and sometimes delightfully silly content. While maintaining a professional demeanour in the workplace, you will be encouraged to leave corporate at the door as we’re looking for someone who fearlessly puts forward their ideas no matter how unconventional or out-of-the-box.  

You’ll be part of a highly entrepreneurial environment and a close-knit team of super committed individuals who love social. There are heaps of opportunities to develop your skills and grow within the Happy Yolk team. We champion continual professional development; encourage our employees  to pursue their individual passions, up-skill, create new offerings and seek out work with clients they’re totally obsessed with.

  • Cool head under fire - as the projects come thick and fast.
  • You are a brilliant multi-tasker and able to juggle a busy workload.

  • Flexi-working - Life can get complicated, so work shouldn’t be. Flexi-working gives you the ability to have flexible start and finish times. You're free to WFH or come into the office without prior approval.
