The ideal Raka intern will have an interest in more than one of the above channels.

Additionally, we expect that you’ll have a strong work ethic, a collaborative spirit, and an appreciation for a good GIF.

In addition to getting experience working in multiple channels in a highly collaborative environment, you’ll also get the following perks:

  • Free snacks (and lots of them)
  • Friday lunches from some of Portsmouth’s best restaurants
