Love Campers Paid Black and Minority Ethnic Internship

Personal Assistant to Director

Love Campers is a dynamic, design-led campervan conversion company based in Newhaven, East Sussex.

The Love Campers Black and Minority Ethnic Internship is aimed at students and recent graduates from Black and minority ethnic communities who are interested in pursuing a career in business and / or the outdoors industry.   

We are seeking a paid intern to work as a part-time P.A to one of our company directors.  The role would suit a student with some work experience and an interest in learning about all aspects of running a small business.  

This Love Campers internship is a diversity initiative targeted at students and recent graduates from Black and minority ethnic communities who are under-represented regionally, and nationally, in the outdoors industry.

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. The role will be primarily remote and the hours are flexible. However we do require some visits to our workshop and so this role would be better suited to an individual within commuting distance of Newhaven. 

The role is offered for six months, 10 hours per week over Monday to Friday, at a rate of £9.50 per hour.
