In the words of William Shatner, all good things must come to an end. While Becky and Alice are doing a sterling job keeping the good ship IdeasTap afloat and in Bristol-fashion, the time has come to start the hunt for our next interning team.

We're looking for two interns. One will be working in our Development team (working on our briefs and supporting our partners) and the other in our Editorial team (research, writing articles and hunting down interviews).

If you have a preference for one department, please let us know in your application.

The successful candidates will be passionate about social media, the arts and have an interest in editorial and/or marketing. They will be hard-working, determined and great team players. Just take Cathy Thomas – she so impressed us when she was Editorial Intern that we took her on as our Marketing Executive. Isn’t that nice? 

Here at IdeasTap we’d never expect you to work for free. Your intern salary will be £8 per hour, working 9am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday at our Bermondsey Street HQ near London Bridge. The successful candidates will be working with us for three months.

There will be an interview stage and, if successful, your first day will be Monday 9 January (although this is can be negotiated around your notice/holiday).
