*Note: This deadline has now passed, but we’re always keen to hear from talented people. You’ll find more details on our careers page.
This August, we’ll be taking on one full-time, paid intern.
If you’re considering a career in B2B tech copywriting, it’s an opportunity to get some training, start your professional portfolio, and spend four weeks as part of one of the best and most supportive teams in the business. (Did we mention it’s paid?)
The triumphant return of Cornwall’s premier tech copywriting internship
It’s been a funny old two years. We won’t dive into all the lows of 2020 onward (you probably don’t need a reminder), but one sad fallout was that Radix hasn’t been able to welcome any interns since 2019.
But like so many good things, the Radix Internship is back and better than ever. Read on for more info about Cornwall’s best (and possibly only) B2B tech copywriting internship, and to learn how you can get involved.
What is the Radix Internship?
Thank you for asking. It’s a hands-on, four-week programme which gives you valuable experience as a B2B copywriter (while paying a living wage at the same time).
Reporting to our Head of Copy, you’ll join our twelve writers as a key part of the writing team. You’ll work alongside our Senior Copywriters to produce great copy, which might include anything from social media posts and marketing emails, to landing pages, newsletters, and short blogs.
We’ll offer plenty of one-to-one training sessions before you’re let loose on any projects, and you’ll have regular catchups with your mentor, who’ll be on hand throughout to support you and offer practical writing advice. And because of the close co-operation involved, you’ll get to do all of this from our award-winning waterside eco-office in Penryn, Cornwall.
After your four weeks with us, you’ll come out with a diverse portfolio of B2B copy, including client work and internal marketing materials. You’ll also have valuable first-hand experience as a B2B copywriter (and fond memories of working alongside a lovely bunch of people).
Who are we looking for?
As this is an internship, we’re not looking for previous industry experience (that’s kind of the point). But we are looking for someone with a flair for writing, and a desire to learn. You’ll also need a willingness to geek out about technology and business. Some of the stuff we write about is pretty obscure and, while we don’t expect you to know about that already, the prospect shouldn’t scare you.
You don’t need a formal writing portfolio to apply, but we’d like it if you could send us one great example of your writing. It doesn’t have to be a published piece of professional work; it could be something from your own blog. Anything that shows how clearly you can communicate through the written word.
Here’s how to apply
If you fancy four weeks of fun/writing for major enterprise tech brands, send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 27th June 2022.
(Please be sure to mention the Internship, so we don’t think you’re applying for our senior copywriter post.)
After the closing date, we’ll invite a shortlist of lucky candidates for an interview and short written exercise. We’re really sorry that we can’t provide feedback if you’re not successful.
Here are the key details you need:
What to send: A covering email, your CV, and one writing example you’re proud of
When to send it: By Monday 27th June
When we’ll interview you: Probably w/c Monday 4th July
When you’ll work: Monday 1st – Friday 26th August (working Mon to Fri, 9.00 – 17.30)
Where you’ll work: Jubilee Warehouse, Penryn, Cornwall, TR10 8AE
What you’ll earn: The Real Living Wage (currently £9.90/hour)
Any questions? Please drop us a line; we’re happy to help. We look forward to receiving your application!
