St Pancras International will be the departing point for the high speed rail Olympic Javelin train and as such Place PR and HS1 are expecting not only high volumes of passengers but also a significant media presence from a range of both national and international broadcast crews.
We need five interns to assist in the following duties:
- General media handling
- Escorting media (particularly foreign TV news crews)
- Marshalling media 'pens'
- General assistance to the Place PR / HS1 media teams
The Media Handling rota runs from 0600 - 0000 (6am to midnight) every day from 26 July - 13 August 2012. These timings have been split into 6 hour shifts but will mean some evening work and work at weekends.
It will be a busy time with a high level of demand on everyone's resources. However, it will also be a great, close up view of how media operate and the 'news function' as well as a chance to say you were part of an Olympic media operation during London 2012.
It is an internship offer with Place PR / HS1 covering expenses only for travel between London zones 1-6, as well as food and drink during shifts.
Applicants should send a CV and short covering email to:
Closing date for applications is 1200 on Friday 22nd June (some posts may be filled before that date).
