DO YOU LIKE BEING SHOUTED AT FOR THINGS THAT AREN’T YOUR FAULT?
(and have others take all the credit for any good work you may have done?)
Oh the life of an intern! And it could be yours!
In all seriousness, we are looking for candidate for the oh so famous summer internship. You’ll gain a wide range of experience, have real time valuable input and see a solid insight into the grit and the dirty, dirty underbelly of the surf and skate industry all whilst being by the beach in South West France, working with a young dynamic team. We promise it’s fun. We don’t shout at you that much. There’s often beers after 5pm.
Sharpen your pencils mes amis.
