Gain experience working for a Y-Combinator backed startup
REFUND GIANT CAMPUS INTERN SCHEME
WHAT IS REFUND GIANT?
Refund Giant is a mobile app which helps tourists reclaim 20% VAT on all their UK shopping.
Before Refund Giant, claiming back VAT meant filling in forms at each store you go to, queuing for an hour at the airport, waiting months for your refund, and paying a 50% service fee.
Now, all tourists have to do is download our app and fill in their details. We'll handle the rest. So your guests can focus on shopping, and forget about paperwork.
WHAT IS THE REFUND GIANT CAMPUS INTERN SCHEME?
The Refund Giant campus intern scheme is an opportunity for students in the UK to gain experience working for a Y-Combinator backed startup.
Campus interns will be tasked with promoting Refund Giant to the international students on their campus. Activities could involve building relationships with societies, finding sponsorships, and representing Refund Giant at events.
In return, campus interns receive commission-based pay and sales & marketing training. The role is ideally suited to a student looking to work in startups, venture capital, or sales after graduation.
WHY YOU SHOULD SIGN UP
Frequently asked questions
How many hours am I expected to do?
The role is autonomous and we firmly believe that you get out what you put in, so we are not monitoring your hours. However, we do expect a minimum of 2 hours per week.
How much money could I earn?
We don't want you to be in this for money, we want you to be in this for the experience, training opportunities, and because you are passionate about improving the experience of tourists to the UK.
However, your earnings are uncapped. If you managed to sign up every international student on your campus you'd earn £000's.
What kind of training will I receive?
You'll be assigned an experienced startup mentor who will teach you all things startups. In addition, you will receive regular sales & marketing training sessions which will cover areas like selling to organisations, designing marketing material, and talking to customers.
What kind of activities will I need to carry out?
We want to give you the freedom and independence to do whatever you think is best. Just keep in mind the goal of ensuring every international student on campus knows about Refund Giant.
Example activities could include taking out a stall at conferences, putting posters up around student accommodation, and building relationships with societies.
