Exciting paid internships with a great brand

We are looking for a bright & energetic individual that can contribute to the success of a revolutionary brand.

Born from a simple idea at a music festival, Gandys was created by brothers Rob and Paul who had a very bohemian upbringing travelling and volunteering all over the world. The brothers wanted to create something unique and driven by their personal passion after the tragic loss of their parents in the Boxing Day Tsunami whilst the family was travelling. In just over a year Gandys have made their way onto the pages of fashion magazines, been spotted on celebrities from Jessie J to Jessica Alba, picked up a global fashion award, and even had Sir Richard Branson along with recognition from Prince William and Prince Harry.

The "Orphans for Orphans" mission, which supports children in need of basic essentials such as nutrition, shelter and education has already started to make an impact by funding children's homes in Malawi & Sri Lanka and the vision is to open them all around the world.

The brand has exploded over the last 12 months as we now not only have flip flops to offer as this was the initial product, but we also now offer other beach accessories and a full men’s and women’s clothing collection. It’s a crazy but enjoyable time for us, so we need some outgoing, reliable people to work alongside the small but super talented Gandys team in which we can work with you to hopefully also become key members of the team. You will spend time with senior members of the HQ team, as well as working independently, and using your initiative. This is a paid Internship which could easily lead into a full time career in Gandys for the right people.
