My company, Articulate, is looking for a summer intern. We promise hard work, intense feedback, direct mentoring, a stipend of £250 a week and the possibility of a full-time job.

Previous interns have joined us as a permanent employee, returned to their studies and moved on to a job at the Oxford University Press. What will you make of the opportunity?

We’re offering

  • 1-3 months’ real-world experience
  • Responsibility for real client work
  • Regular mentoring
  • A chance to work with big-name clients such as Microsoft, HP and Symantec
  • Great experience and a great reference for your CV
  • The possibility to apply for a permanent position
  • A stipend of £250 per week

Typical assignments

  • Case studies, white papers, web copy etc for clients
  • Social media marketing for Articulate and
  • Writing articles for company and client blogs
  • Marketing plans for various projects

What we are looking for

  • Fluent written and spoken English
  • Good writing skills – you write a lot, for example on your own blog
  • Digital natives – you’re at home on Twitter, Facebook etc.
  • Analytical skills – you can analyse data and draw logical conclusions
  • A strong interest in marketing as a career choice
  • Personal attributes including attention to detail, self-organisation, curiosity and quick thinking; evidenced by a track record of academic success
  • (But a degree in marketing itself isn’t necessary. Previous interns have studied architecture, English and mathematics.)

What you should know

  • Articulate is a small, entrepreneurial company so this is an informal programme that will suit a rugged individualist rather than a corporate clone wannabe.
  • We expect you to work (very) hard but this isn’t an office job. You will be working remotely – at home, if you like. We will use Skype, online applications and email to communicate.
  • It would be helpful, but not mandatory, if you were able to come to London from time to time for meetings.
