Media/sales internship – Events firm – Cape Town


This firm is a new digital platform that is turning the global events industry upside down. They are on their way to create the world’s first comprehensive online community dedicated to connecting event hosts with the right event service, product, or venue.

They allow smart young people to develop multiple skills in an advanced tech-orientated environment, while simultaneously growing as people and leaders. They are very proud to play a role in the career development of the Young Guns and PostGrads who join our team.

As it’s a fast-paced, goal-driven startup and each team within the company has different requirements for candidates. But in general, you should enjoy working in a demanding and agile environment. The ability to communicate well and play nice within a tightly knit team would stand you in good stead, as would a thirst to learn new things and willingness to get things done.
