Our Design School team has a wide range of all-round skills. They’re designers, teachers, facilitators, creatives and doers. They facilitate in-person and in-product learning and continuously grow their skills and our courses along with our product and content library.
Above all else, Design School aims to make the complex simple, taking big broad topics and and making them applicable, engaging and accessible to everyone. Our team has the ability to take a complex thing and communicate it simply with visuals.
About the role
We’re looking for a new content presenter to join our team to plan, create and deliver educational content for our social and community channels. This role will closely connect the Design Education and Community & Social teams by planning content that educates our community on how to use Canva, in a way that is responsive to trends and tailored for our channels.
You’ll be a great fit for this role if you’re super social savvy and have a strong understanding of different channels and the types of content that perform the best. You’ll have experience creating content for online communities and explaining concepts in a clear and engaging way.
The Presenter will be someone who can:
Present with confidence. The majority of this role will involve presenting workshops to Enterprise clients, so this person will need to be very confident in their presentation skills to audiences large and small
