What we are offering:
The internship goes for about 2 days a week for three months and is for vocational training and as such is unpaid. If during the course of the training, you demonstrate excellence in this role, there may be an opportunity for paid work as a freelancer to our clients. If you believe you have what it takes, please send us your cover letter and resume and most importantly a tweet about why we should take you on.
WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR
We are looking for interns who are interested in learning more about digital marketing. A Step Change internship will teach you more in three months than Uni teaches in three years. Work with the digital team on live client projects and gain real experience.
WHO WE ARE
Step Change exists to help challenger businesses outsmart their competitors. We work directly with business owners and leaders across strategy, marketing and leadership. We have 100+ clients every year and they range from Sony Pictures to startups, from maternity wards to funeral homes and everything in between. Our services are mainly delivered through workshops, where our team works with the client to come to the best and most effective solution using a range of tried and tested Step Change tools.
WHAT WE'RE OFFERING
We have a three-month, unpaid, internship available for students in their final year of study. It’s okay if your area of study isn’t business or marketing – here we’ve got lawyers, economists, graphic designers, journalists and engineers – what’s more important is your interest in learning, the challenge of thinking on your feet and thinking creatively.
The internship is unpaid for three days a week over three months though it’s worth noting almost half our current staff came through this program, with us building a full-time job for the best.
We’re happy to give letters of reference for those wanting to use their internship for a university course.
WHAT YOU'LL GET
Don’t worry, we’re not interested in having someone around just to get coffees. Your role will be to learn our tools, then work closely with our strategy team to deploy them. As a small business, you’ll also get the chance to be involved with sales, event management and the creative team so you’ll come out with a really broad view of how the industry works.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
The only thing you’ll need to bring with you is the right attitude. As a small team, we all have to jump in to lend a hand where needed, even if that’s outside our comfort zone. So be confident, be interested, and be willing to work hard – but leave any ego at home. Writing skills and the ability to properly proofread would be a big bonus.
We will cover any expenses incurred while working.
Please note: We require a letter of acknowledgement from your university that either
states that you are undertaking the internship as part of a university course, or that the
university acknowledges that the internship would be of benefit to your degree.
