The ideal intern's personality and qualifications;

Most important is a learning mindset

The ideal candidate will be hungry for new knowledge and eager to put new skills into practice

Possess a "get shit done" mentality

This is an organisation in rapid transition and the candidate will be working with the founder as he grows the company over the next three months. There is nowhere to hide and the candidate must be accountable to themselves. Desire to work in a start-up would be huge advantage - you will have exposure to the realities of setting up an operation.

Openness honesty and clarity

while we are dealing with quite rarefied subject matter for clients, our approach is pragmatic and refreshingly jargon-free. I need to someone who communicates clearly and effectively.

The role will suit somebody who is interested in strategy, marketing operations or business development.

What are the perks of interning at this company?

Relatively short working days. Candidates will be expected to work 10 AM till 4:30 PM daily making a 33-hour week

Occasional free lunches

One of the first tasks will be to set up an office, and it is likely we will be based in co-working space or similar buzzy environment.

No corporate politics or dull stuff

The real value of this internship will be seen by a candidate who wants to make an impression within a short space of time and gather a wide range of skills.

The culture of the company will be defined during this phase so rather than entering a company with a predefined culture, you have the opportunity to shape and impact it. The things that you might enjoy include the following:

Using start-up and growth type tools including Trello, Slack, Google Drive and other non-corporate tools

Attending and involvement in events, and the opportunity to practice networking and influencing skills from the start.

Having defined ownership and control of what you do

Questions for applicants to think about:

What will you be able to say at the end of this internship? What will you be proud of?

What is your level of comfort with starting with a blank sheet of paper?

What is your learning style?

How will this three-month engagement fit in with your longer career goals?
