Escape the City is entering an exciting new phase. As our product continues to improve we are faced with ever increasing commercial challenges.

We are looking for someone to come and spend 8 weeks with the commercial team helping with sales and marketing. In return we can offer exposure to a tech startup environment, commercial experience, a modest salary, and introductions to relevant exciting employers.

The work isn't complicated but you will be exposed to the whole business and leave with a good understanding of what we are doing (you'll also get a cooked lunch every day - as long as you take your turn cooking for the team - and yes we do play a bit of table tennis).

Who Are We Looking For?

We are looking for someone who can work fast and who doesn't mind rolling up their sleeves to do lots of high-value, low-complexity work. Someone with the "right" attitude who can write well and type fast.

You need to be fluent in English and legally be allowed to work in the UK.

Who Would This Suit?

1. Someone looking to get experience in a tech / entrepreneurial environment, specifically someone interested in sales, marketing, and business development.

2. Someone looking to find a full-time job (you will be exposed to hundreds of new opportunities whilst working with us - so you'll be well placed to find and apply for jobs).

Our aim is that, at the end of 8 weeks, you will be well placed to get a full-time job in an area that you're interested in. We will help you on this front.

What Will The Role Entail?

  • Business Development - Identifying new organisations and exciting opportunities that aren't on Escape the City (hence it would help if you're job seeking).

  • Sales - Finding contact details, reaching out, building new relationships, evangelising Escape the City and getting employers to use us.

  • Website Management - Helping improve and increase the employer content on our site. This will include a fair amount of editing, tagging and formatting.

  • Marketing - Assisting with content marketing by writing blog posts relating to latest community news and reviews of exciting opportunities.

  • Recruitment - Towards the end of the internship you will source, interview and recruit your successor. We'll help you with the process and decision-making.

When Will The Position Be Filled?

We are looking for someone to start asap. The sooner you can apply and the sooner you can start - the better. We intend for this to be a rolling internship so if you can't start soon just ask us to keep you on file for later in the year.

Thanks for reading, look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck - Rob.
