HFP intern opportunity – 5 weeks, £2500, start on Monday!

Whilst I work through the applications for the new HFP full time writing role, I am looking for someone to help out at Head for Points for the 5 weeks between now and Christmas.

This is primarily to help with putting the Christmas Party together because, frankly, with Anika now out of London it won’t be happening otherwise.

Because I need you to start on Monday and jump straight in, the criteria are fairly strict:

You need to be available to start on Monday 12th November, with a targeted end date of Friday 14th December (5 weeks)

You MUST have WordPress experience – this is not primarily an article-writing role but you will be doing stuff on the site

You must have decent knowledge of how British Airways Executive Club works, but you don’t need to know much about any other schemes

Experience in organising any sort of large event is welcome

And, ahem, you’ll need to bring your own laptop, as we don’t have a spare in the office at the moment …… 🙂

Payment is £500 per week, so £2500 for the full five weeks.  (We’re not in the business of exploiting interns for zero or little money.)  You will be working immediately behind Moorgate station in our ‘free beer, free coffee, table tennis table etc’ WeWork office.  Standard office hours apply although there will be a few evening events to attend.

There is the potential for extending the role for a couple of weeks in January if we both mutually agree.  It will depend on when the new full-time employee can start.

In the spirit of a proper internship, I will try to get you exposure to as many interesting people as I can depending on my meeting schedule, even when there is no business reason for you to be there.  Subject to BA approval, you will even get to meet Alex Cruz. You will also be able to attend the full range of WeWork talks and events held nightly in the building.

This is not a ‘dogsbody’ role – although, of course, there are some day-to-day admin tasks that will fall on your shoulders.  You will, for example, be responsible for visiting potential venues for the Christmas party, negotiating the contract and finalising the sponsorship deal.  Anika will offer guidance but you will be taking all the meetings yourself.

I am assuming that this will appeal to an unemployed graduate or someone on a gap year but I’m open to all options. Drop me an email TODAY (by midnight on Thursday) at rob [at] headforpoints.co.uk if you’re interested, and include your mobile number.  To the extent you can, please include internet links to validate your relevant experience.  I will make a decision on Friday.  There will be no interviews.

Please do NOT apply if you applied for the full-time job we advertised recently, as part of your work will involve helping me manage that process.
