Repeat Roses : Summer 2019 Marketing Internship
Repeat Roses is seeking a Marketing Intern to join its Sales & Business Development team. The ideal candidate will be highly motivated to learn more about Repeat Roses and to help assist our marketing efforts while gaining valuable career experience in a fast-paced, rapidly growing environment.
Our Summer 2019 Internship demands a highly motivated individual excited to make a immediate, positive difference in the world as part of their internship experience. The world of wedding, special occasion celebrations, and social events is waiting for you in Manhattan, and you’ll be helping to ensure that the event flowers get repurposed to bring joy to those in the community who will truly benefit from the emotional health boost that flowers deliver. The success of the internship program is dependent on bringing a combination of your educational experience (hospitality management, business development, entrepreneurship, public relations, marketing, social media and communications); with your passion and interests (weddings, social events, corporate event planning, galas, media, style, fashion, luxury retail, floral design); and work ethic (heart, soul, effort, dedication, curiosity, attention to detail, positive attitude). A collaborative spirit is a must. You’ll have the opportunity to work with our NYC team; coordinate the planned and real-time social media for our client events in NYC and across the country with hotels, floral designers, wedding planners, restaurants, and event venues; and contribute your strategic thinking and creative edge with our digital marketing campaign, social media platform and editorial content development. This support role plays an essential part in the team’s mission to ensure a seamless social event and corporate client experience. The full-time internship is headquartered in our New York City office (with potential to travel to support regional events in the Hamptons). Typical work hours are Monday - Friday (8:30am-5:30pm) with occasional evenings and weekend flex schedule based on company event calendar.
What is Repeat Roses?
We think it's our job to stop and smell the roses, shift the paradigm and reimagine the status quo. We believe it's chic to share and we think it's our duty to transform a wasteful industry into an eco-responsible one. What do we do? We recycle beautiful wedding and event flowers so they're appreciated for days, not hours. When it comes to stylish centerpieces, we're centered on a mission of kindness and sustainability. We repurpose, pay-it-forward and compost, not because it's cool but because it's in our nature.
We have partnered with luxury corporate clients, non-profit organizations and stylish brides from coast to coast since the company’s founding in 2014. Black-tie fundraisers, hotel openings, and glamorous galas are our second home. This team values passion, self-initiative and high attention to detail. As a member of Repeat Roses, you’ll possess a great sense of service, to our clients as well as to the broader community.
Our vision is striking a chord with the glam, the green and the go-getters - and business is blooming. As we enter a new phase of accelerated expansion, team members will have room to grow with us.
