We get lots of applications - lots and lots - so if you think you can make a difference to what we do we need to be able to quickly and easily get to know you. The following is a quick guide to making sure we spot you.
We look for people with passion for what they do, ambition and an ability to look outside the box - it goes without saying that your written and verbal communication is flawless, but it won't hurt if you have asense of humour!
Waffling self aggrandisement and biz-dev jargon won't win you any points here - we need people who are going to bring some spark and enthusiasm for the role whilst proving they can be a trusted and valued memberof the team.
Part written test, part opportunity to let your personality shine through, the covering letter is the MOST IMPORTANT PART of your application. If you can't be bothered to write one, don't expect to hear back from us!
Why do we insist on a letter you may ask?
- It shows us that you bothered to read the job advert, understand the role and can follow simple instructions...
- It shows us that you have an eloquent and charming command of whichever language is appropriate to the role...
- It helps us understand why you think you'd be good for the role and what you'd bring to the team...
- It shows us you have more imagination than just writing 'I work well on my own or as part of a team'..
We don't want a narrative of every job you've ever had -that's in your CV - we want to know why you'd be an awesome addition to the team and why we'd be mad not to get you on board. Don't just send us that generic letter you wrote for a completely different job and hope we don't notice - this is your chance to show us who you are and why we need you!
No cover letter, no reply!
If you are applying for a creative role, it is vital that you include some samples of your work - this can be links to online portfolios or work, an attached PDF or even your degree project. We get loads of applications, so I'm afraid if we can't see it, you can't be considered!
