The internship is 3 months but and the precise starting date is less important than finding the right candidate. There is an opportunity to turn the internship into a permanent full-time position but this highly dependent on individual and business performance and by no means guaranteed.

Please apply with a CV and cover note. We will interview for the role on a continuous basis and close the application process when we find the right candidate. We are a small team and will therefore only be able to get back to successful applicants. If you have not heard from us within a week your application has unfortunately not been successful on this occasion.
