How do you fancy a funded work placement/ internship in Seville, Spain? You’d be working with a creative company in the area of media, web or design. And you’d be in SPAIN for 13 weeks, learning, soaking up the culture, getting experience, with your accommodation paid. Sounds like a great gig to me!!
The application deadline is July 19th 2012.
