WE HEART INTERNS

We are nice people, doing interesting stuff, we have great clients, we love teaching people and we have funky offices – fancy spending some intern time with us?

In return for helping us we will nurture you and look after you. We will take you to lunch, we will make you laugh a lot and we will teach you lots of new stuff about business and finance. You will learn tons about different business structures. You will also learn a lot about accounting and tax  – but only the sexy stuff, none of the boring bits. We come at business from a very commercial perspective and we will help you understand all about the commercial aspects of business and finance – what really makes businesses tick. We only work with entrepreneurs and cool young businesses so you will also get to meet a lot of inspiring people.

Here’s who we are looking for to join our team…

1.) THE LYNCHPIN  – IF YOU LIKE THE IDEA OF BEING RELIED UPON TO HOLD THINGS TOGETHER?

The Lynchpin is arguably THE most important person in our team, the person who makes sure we are all doing what we are supposed to be doing. And we are looking for an intern who’s up to that challenge.

To be the best person for the job and to get the most out of it you will need things like excellent attention to detail and expert MS Office skills. You will need to be tech savvy, a brilliant team player and have the ability to motivate yourself to get things done. It’ s no good sitting around  waiting to be told what to do –  there will be plenty to do!

We work to a lot of tight deadlines and we really hate letting people down so we will be relying on you to make sure we don’t. We know that’s a fair amount of pressure but maybe you can handle that with no problem?  So, if you think that you are that intern who can crack the whip and keep us all in order then please get in touch!

2.) SOCIAL MEDIA NUT – DO YOU SPEND YOUR LIFE  ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND DO YOU WANT TO DO IT AS YOUR DAY JOB?

We are launching our flagship product ‘Paycircle‘, we need to get a handle on our social media and we need a social media enthusiast to help us. First we will teach you all about what we are doing and why we are doing it and then we will support you with great content and a whole heap of wonderful information for you to tell our audiences all about – be our ‘maven‘ and start a ‘Paycircle epidemic’!

If you get social enterprise, love learning about cool and interesting new things and just can’t keep stuff to yourself maybe you are the social media intern for us?

If so, please get in touch.

Quick tip – please don’t just send us your CV!
