Tiktik, the online dating platform, has been hiring advertising interns, in what is expected to be a significant move for the UK’s largest dating site.
Tikticks latest recruitment drive, which saw the company expand to more than 1,300 jobs, is expected start in April and run for three months.
In a press release, TikTik’s senior marketing manager, Ian Stewart, said that “as a company, we value the experience and skills that come from working at a leading international and multinational company.”
Stewart added that “the internship is an incredibly important stepping stone to get your feet wet with TikTok, and we believe that the interns are a key part of this journey”.
In a recent post, Ticks senior communications director, Laura K. Smith, said the interns would be “well versed in Tik’s advertising and marketing processes and will be able to use this experience to develop the next generation of TikTs ad campaigns”.
“TikTicks advertising interns will also be able work closely with our social media teams to bring Tik to new audiences and target them across all channels,” she added.
The recruitment drive comes amid increasing concerns that some of the world’s biggest dating websites, such as Tinder and Plenty of Fish, are actively promoting illegal behaviour.
The British government has launched a national review into how dating sites operate, with some critics calling for a ban on the platforms’ advertising and the removal of dating ads altogether.
