A Fault In Our Ads

Recently we ran this posting on a job board called JobAdder.com. While the original post has been taken down without our permission, we wanted to make this information available.

We made a mistake in our copywriting. Where we have “remuneration” we should have placed “perks”. This was a fault in our copy checking. As we use templates to draft our ads on JobAdder.com, specifically to comply with their posting format, we failed to replace the word “remuneration”.

We want to apologise to our candidates and to our partner, Future Squared. For everyone else, the ad has been provided in its unedited format, and we would like to make it very clear that our internships are for the learning experience for students entering the workforce.
