We are currently recruiting an Intern to join us on a 12 month contract, starting on 23rd November. Offering general support to the company as a whole our intern must be happy to turn his or her hand to anything, have a strong can-do attitude and fierce attention to detail. This is a role where no week is ever the same – you could be running packages one minute to providing holiday cover on a busy Assistant’s desk the next.

The successful candidate will have a good working knowledge of the industry, be IT savvy and be genuinely happy to turn their hand to anything. While this is an entry level role it’s an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to pursue a career in talent management – many of our runners go on to secure permanent roles within the company.

Please send your CV and covering email to with INTERN in the subject header.

Please note we do not accept applications or enquiries by telephone or requests for feedback.

Because we often have a large response to our advertised positions, we cannot always respond to all applications.
