We are a quirky start-up who make male grooming products for guys with sensitive skin. We are based in Rosyth which delivers organic, all natural products with no alcohol, harsh chemicals & synthetic scents. We are looking for an intern to come in to the business for 1-4 months, possibly longer.
The fucking problem with experience!
We know all too well the problems you face as a young person or graduate looking for paid work, employers want you to have hands on experience before they hire you. You may have muttered the following words…
‘How the fuck am I supposed to gain experience if I’m constantly turned down for not having any?!’
With that said, we want someone to come in and help us build the business up and develop the Bearded Basturds brand. In exchange for helping us, we will give you the opportunity to work hands on in a professional environment.
Making coffee for the person who makes fucking the tea!

Real business meetings about exciting collaboration projects
