For internships, we take an unusual approach in that we don’t wish to see your CV. We don't want to know where you went to university or even if you did. What we seek are creative individuals with a genuine passion for public relations, with the key attributes of flair, imagination, a strong work ethic and enthusiasm.

You should also have a bright and positive persona, be articulate and confident with outstanding verbal, written and presentation skills. If you have other languages or media production skills such as video, audio, or photography skills then please tell us.
Above all, we seek individuals who are self-starters. A person who will relish the chance to make the most of the opportunity, contribute and make a positive impact. You should have no more full time formal education in front of you and be available for at least four to six months from the start date advertised.
