Community Engagement Intern

Remuneration:R17000 - R25000 per month Basic salary 
Location:Remote
Job level:Junior
Type: 3 Months
Company:The Knowledge Trust


We live in a world that is becoming increasingly difficult for everyone on many different levels.

Around 187 million people in the United States alone are believed to be working with sub-optimal mental health.

If you need help or support with trying to work through issues or problems you might have, where do you turn? Family and friends provide support for many people but sometimes you need to speak to someone who has gone through what you are going through, not just lending an ear.

If you are lucky enough to have the money or insurance to pay for therapy then you can expect to pay around R2,500 an hour to speak to a licensed therapist either online or in person. Often the therapist will not be a good fit for you or there will be a six-week wait to be able to see anyone. 50% of people in therapy quit after one session.

We believe that emotional support is a universal right and we are on a mission to give people access to an affordable alternative to therapy. 

The first hour is completely free and after that, it costs just $475 an hour. We’re called what we are because the people we train and have on our platform are peer counselors. This really means that they can be thought of as equals, at the intersection of a therapist and a trusted friend.

We have a unique way of recruiting and training ordinary people who are naturally pre-disposed to being excellent peer counselors due to their particular levels of empathy, emotional intelligence and their ability to form bonds. We take only the top 3% of all applicants and train them using our extensive experience of psychotherapy and counseling practices that we have refined over the last 20 years.

If this sounds interesting then please read on.

We are looking for an intern to join us on this journey. We are in the process of raising a Seed Round with top tier VCs in the US and so we are looking for someone to help us get more users, generate more revenue and connect with more people.

We currently have three members of staff and around 30 peer counselors who are based 100% remotely across Europe, South Africa, Argentina and the US.

You will own our social media channels and be accountable for growth and conversions. This is an ambitious role with a lot of responsibility and we are looking for someone very special.
  • You will need to find people across all social media channels who need help online and sensitively introduce them to our services
  • You will need to use your creativity to make people aware of what peer counseling is, its clinical impact and how truly transformational it could be
  • You will need to solve problems, build profiles and drive traffic on a daily basis to enable us to fulfil our mission of getting affordable mental health support to as many people as possible
If you share our values, understand our mission and can move us forward in your role as an intern, we will hire you as a permanent member of staff when our seed round closes later this year.

We truly believe that we have created something transformational and this is the first stage of our journey. We are backed by an advisory board of leading psychologists, founded by mental health experts and are on course to grow at an exponential rate. We believe in honesty, integrity and transparency. You will need to work hard and be highly adaptable.

Our team is warm and open but helping people is an obsession for all of us. If you want to be part of our journey and think you can offer something truly unique then we’d love to hear from you.

You will be required to attach a cover letter. Please start your cover letter by telling us why you are passionate about mental health.
