​Paid Marketing and Communications Internship at Healthcare Ecommerce Startup (full-time)


Live Better With is a soon-to-launch one-stop store for people with chronic diseases. Our aim is to offer all the products that a patient with a long-term condition, such as cancer, will need in order to help alleviate their symptoms and side effects – and so hopefully help improve their quality of life on a day-to-day basis.

With Live Better With launching imminently, we are looking for a marketing and communications intern to join us for an initial 3-month stint. You will work directly with the Founder to attract our first customers and our first sales! You’ll also help make the website the most helpful it can be for patients and their families. And, you’ll get great exposure to the world of early-stage start-ups.

We are based in Hoxton (a few minutes from the Old Street roundabout) in the offices of our investors, Forward Partners, who are one of London’s most exciting VC firms. You'll get to work very closely day-to-day with their team of product, design, development and marketing experts.

You will learn how to:

+Understand the needs of our particular customer base
+Plan and run the launch and initial marketing campaigns for Live Better With – online and print
+Find other thoughtful ways to spread the word to patients and their families
+Track what’s working and what isn’t, and think through what a longer-term marketing plan should look like
+Write website copy that brings the mission of Live Better With to life and articulates the benefits of the products we offer to patients/families in a compelling and creative way
+Come up with other downloadable/emailable content that will be helpful to patients and their families
+Start building the online presence of Live Better With, including on social media
+Attend events to promote our company and also learn more about the London start-up scene
+Understand the lean start up methodology and how it applies to customer development and rapid growth


You will be:

+Genuinely excited by the chance to help improve the quality of life for thousands of people in the UK
+Degree qualified, or working towards a Bachelors or Masters or MBA or other
+Articulate and confident
+Exceptional in your written communications, with a great vocabulary, perfect grammar, and a clear and engaging writing style
+Creative, and thrive on coming up with new ideas
+A can-do person, with a great attitude and lots of energy and resilience
+Free to dedicate yourself to this during work hours Monday-Friday at our office, and willing to work hard
+Able to bring your own laptop
+Living in the London area, and legally able to work in the UK without restriction
+Available imminently and until the end of the year (initial 3-month stint)

Work directly with the Founder (ex-McKinsey Partner with 10 years experience in the sector and prior startup experience).
