Intern Associate (3 Months)
Mavens of London is a digital research and strategy consultancy, born out of a unique combination of digital expertise, gained at the forefront of online research, strategy, and activation for some of the world's largest brands.
Our work is truly global, across industry and across continents. We distinguish ourselves by using search engine and social media data to provide insight into people and their behaviour, translating this into online strategies that drive genuine business benefits.
Our role is to help brands understand how the digital landscape works, from the geological underpinnings of Google search, to the rough peaks of the Facebook newsfeed. From wilds of forums and blogs, to the clean streets of the Apple App Store. Mavens feeds hungrily on the raw data of the internet, and uses it to map and understand the paths that brands should tread.
We are offering a paid three month internship for new graduates looking to start a career in digital strategy consulting. Based in Mavens' offices in Central London, the internship will begin in May and last for three months.
We are looking for graduates with intellectual curiosity, a pioneering mind-set, and an undaunted attitude, who want to make a genuine difference to our clients and the way things are done.
It's mostly about being clever and knowing stuff (at least some of which you'll learn on the job). It's also mostly about the Internet. It's about researching things, about getting and playing with data, about drawing conclusions, and about being creative in your approach. And finally, it’s about pulling all of that together to help design revolutionary approaches to problems, and game winning strategies.
We don't require any specific experience (we like training!), or even a particular set of skills (though if you love playing with and manipulating data, that would be great), but we do need you to be clever, inquisitive, and care about the quality of your work.
You will be able to demonstrate a strong academic record, ideally with a numerically focused degree, and a positive mix of extracurricular activities. Fluency in English is essential, with other languages considered favourably.
How to apply
Please attach a CV and cover letter. We really recommend you take some time over the covering letter, at least as much as your CV. The covering letter is the first thing we look at, and we really pay a lot of attention to it.
So here are some tips:
- Try and let your personality show through. Your CV is for education and experience; please use the covering letter to convey something about the person who has emerged, like a beautiful moth, from those experiences.
- Attention to detail is hugely important in our work, so do bear that in mind. This is a presentation about, and of, yourself; so make sure you've nailed the spelling, the grammar, and the formatting.
And good luck!
