I'm looking for an intern to help out on the Bruce Finds A Home Kickstarter project. You can find the job ad below and listed on The Big Idea. Please get in touch if you'd like to find out more... or share the ad with anyone you know who is looking to gain marketing or publishing experience.
This will suit someone who wants to develop their creative, entrepreneurship, publishing, marketing or business skills.
You will work for 2 - 4 hours per week during April and May. Your responsibilities will include creating content for social media, liaising with bloggers, and some administrative tasks. You will be enthusiastic, creative and have excellent attention to detail. Ideally, you will have good written skills, a good eye for design... and like cats!
This is an unpaid role, but it's a genuine networking and learning opportunity. You will learn about book publishing and about running crowd-funding campaigns. You will have access to all the crowd-funding and publishing details (eg budgets, timelines, web analytics) which you can later apply to your own projects. You will also receive written and verbal references. Other benefits can be worked through with the successful applicant.
This is a Dunedin-based opportunity, however it should be possible to work on this project remotely. So if you're interested but live elsewhere, please get in touch and we can discuss options.
