Ministry of Sound is looking for interns - and is asking applicants to wow them in just 140 characters.
The world’s largest independent music company say they think the six-month role will be the UK’s most sought-after internship. It will include DJ masterclasses and free entry to Ministry of Sound nightclub for all of the internship. The Elephant & Castle based role will pay the London Living wage of £9.15 an hour.
There are seven chances for hopeful applicants. They can work across radio, compilations, club, creative, digital, finance and tours and events departments. The catch comes with the cover letter, which can only be 140 - the length of a tweet. Fortunately, there are three weeks to apply and craft every single letter.
Each intern will need to head up their own project that they’ll later present to Ministry of Sound’s CEO, Lohan Presencer.
Ministry of Sound’s new Human Resources Director, Tacita Small, said: “We want to hire the smartest, freshest talent and discover the UK’s most inspirational people who have the desire to positively impact and lead within the entertainment industry. Some of our directors and managers began their careers here as interns, which is why we feel it’s so important to make our new internship programme as attractive and exciting as possible.
“This is a serious search for the next generation of top talent which will test and develop the candidates’ situational adaptability, customer focus skills, creativity, work ethic and ability to collaborate.”
