If you’ve ever had anything to do with me at all, you’ll know that I have a number of websites and projects in various stages of development.
Some of those projects are taking up more of my attention because they’re more immediately successful, and others need more energy and attention than I have to spare.
I’m looking for a bright and enthusiastic individual who will work with me to develop a portfolio of projects into strong brands and viable business ventures.
Because they are currently only pet projects, and not yet going concerns as businesses, I am currently unable to offer payment for this work – but what I can offer the right new member of ‘Team Dubber’ is a range of experience across a variety of projects, connections with interesting people, reference opportunities and the chance to help develop some interesting new media enterprises.
In other words – this is developmental work – and the success of that development will largely dictate the nature and size of the financial reward for the person involved. Ideally, that person will be based in Birmingham, though this is not an absolute essential.
It’s home working, working with me, working via Skype… full time, but largely unsupervised and with flexible hours. Targets and tasks, rather than hours and schedules.
The gig offers experience, connections, references and some really interesting work. The intention is that it develops over time into a paid position, and this would be contingent on the success of the individual projects that the intern is working on.
The demands are pretty high: exceptional written and spoken English will be a must, good computer skills, an entrepreneurial streak and an ambition to develop a portfolio of strong online media brands. A knowledge of the education sector, the music industry, the radio business and online culture would be welcomed, but not essential.
I have an administrator and I have technical support. These are not what I’m looking for. This is more about day to day project management.
I’m particularly looking for a recent graduate – preferably from the marketing, business or public relations fields, but the right person is simply someone friendly and efficient who I can work with personally and who is, above all, committed, reliable and interested enough to make this work.
If it sounds like your kind of thing (or you know someone who fits the bill), send a CV as a PDF file and a short (300 word) expression of interest to this email address.
Contacting me about it in some other way or in some other form will serve as evidence of an inability to follow instructions – and that won’t help.
