The Role

We are seeking passionate, young-hearted people who have a natural flair for events and guest relations to join our event intern programme at The Yacht Week this summer. The Summer Internship Program is open to ambitious, passionate, energetic individuals; who possess previous events or hospitality experience and wish to further enhance their knowledge and skills within the industry.

You will have the chance to get to know people from all around the world while exploring one of our beautiful destinations. It is hugely important that Interns are flexible and enthusiastic about experiencing different roles throughout the programme. 

Being adaptable, flexible and having a positive attitude is a must. This is a fast-paced, customer-facing role that requires you to be consistently upbeat and friendly.

  • You will be expected to work between 6 to 8 hours a day as well as being on night duty once or twice per week.
