We’ll be looking for two Micro Interns to join us in July 2018 to spend some time with us at our Gloucestershire based office, before heading up to Edinburgh Festival Camping from late July to beginning of September. The internships are a paid position, and the successful applicant will be someone looking for a career in tourism, hospitality and/or events.

The role on site will vary from providing customer services, assisting with staff training, helping create the site, leading the Front of House and housekeeping teams, and helping with the operational tasks needed to create the campsite.


Candidates must be self-motivated, team players with the ability to prioritise and lead a small team of volunteers. Attention to detail and an understanding of is essential.

A mind that is stretched by a new experience, can never go back to its old dimensions.
