SPONSURF Internship APPLICATION
SPONSURF seeks to set a new internship standard through offering a unique travel industry placement. Whilst the positions are unpaid, what we have in store should beat any paid program you will ever come across. As a start up company we value your skills, creativity and drive. You will take centre stage within key positions and roles with real responsibility.
There is so much that could be done that your role could be extremely varied. Things that you might do or be involved with:
- Marketing the SPONSURF brand… taking this to new heights with creative ideas
- Sales process – plus sales campaigns to increase individual and group bookings
- Managing social media accounts
- Website blogging
- Managing online shop – stock taking, the marketing and sales processes for the online shop
- Finding new clothing or product companies to partner with
- Finding new surf camps to partner with

- Discovering new business partners to add value to SPONSURF and university groups we work with + meet these people.
- Managing existing bookings
- Organise and manage reps for trips
Where you will be based:
Whilst you can find us online, all the hard work and action happens in our office in St Denys (Southampton) where you will be based. We are looking for individuals that can work 5 days a week however we will consider part time workers if enough hours can be dedicated. If you are a surf blogger and you are looking to get some articles out there, this is something we might also consider. If you fit in well, then we might look to keep you on for a longer time!
The type of people we are looking for:
Past experience in running a university club is beneficial however not essential. Computer proficiency is a must and relevant programs that you can use would be ace - such as Photoshop, Final Cut, Illustrator etc. We are not looking for a super formal CV telling us about a history essay that was challenging. We are more interested in clubs and teams you have been part of; events you might have run or helped out on; club nights or house parties you have been a DJ at... you get the picture. You do not have to be a pro surfer to join us, but you do need to be frother and super enthusiastic!!
Why you should join us:
If you are looking for an opportunity where you will gain real life experience rather than the usual internship (cough* babysitting) programs, then look no further. With our expansion set, alongside our increasing number of students we take away, we need staff that are willing to get involved with a fast pace company. We need a crew who are willing to get fully stuck in to the brand, what we are doing and not really see it as a job; but more of a responsibility to get more people in to surfing. If this works out, then you will have plenty of opportunity to travel across Europe...and surf of course. No day is the same – its time for you to be a part of the SPONSURF journey.
Internship start date October 3rd, length for minimum of ONE month. Application deadline closes Friday 23rd September. Please upload Cover Letter and CV together as a JPEG or PDF.
