Starboard is hiring an intern to join our Environmental team.

Firstly, Starboard is hiring as our environmental projects are growing! Above all, this is great news for the planet and great news for you if you are looking to gain hands-on experience in the environmental and sporting world!

Therefore, we are on the search for someone who has a genuine care for the health of the planet, who believes in themselves to make a positive impact and for a lasting change.

You will not only be part of the Starboard team leading the way in sustainability, but will also assist with our new apparel brand SOMWR, collaborate with eco-partners, educational systems, and explore connections across other industries and realms too. This is certainly an opportunity to be part of something bigger, to take action on global issues our oceans and planet are facing today. All to keep life on the planet to be as livable as possible for all generations to come. 

In addition, the person Starboard is hiring for will need to be creative, a quick learner, adaptable, extremely well organised, good personal time management, a high level of attention to detail and good at mathematics. 

Everyone is welcome to apply.

In addition, Starboard is hiring for someone to start within September/October 2020, and who can commit to a minimum of 12 months.

Overall we are looking for someone who has a pure passion for the protection of our planet and is seeking to make a positive contribution to Starboard’s mission of being ‘the best in the world and the best for the world’ and who knows they can positively contribute to the team.
