If you think Pukka and this opportunity is for you, please apply below. Our process, a lot like Pukka, is a bit different so we think it’s important to tell you a little about it first. You’ll be taken to our application system and asked to register (which takes just a few seconds), then you’ll have the opportunity to create your profile and upload your CV – nothing special about it so far! Then, we’ll ask you to record 3 short videos (there are full instructions) answering the following questions:

- Who are you?

- How do you relate to others?

- Heart or head?

After the closing date Sunday 12th February, we’ll shortlist and be in touch with you about next steps.
