Summer Internships ~ BDB Is Recruiting!

Posted by +Bellydancingbarbie on March 25th, 2013

An exciting opportunity has arisen to do something really exciting this summer whilst gaining valuable experience and being paid in Bellydance lessons! Interested?..

I thought you might be!..


You will work individually, communicating with the mothership via the wonders of new-fangled technology and at times meet to work within a small team, probably whilst eating cake, although cake will be optional. This will be a great fun position which will also challenge you in many new ways.

You’ll be helping out Bellydancingbarbie, initially 3 hours per week, at times which suit you, assisting in a variety of behind the scenes tasks including exciting promotional and marketing projects, producing social media content, blog writing, researching articles and collating data, occasionally answering email enquiries, community event coordination with The Mala’ikah Project, listing costuming stock, typing and general administration. You will have some creative input and be allowed to be yourself!


Being a very special person who’s enthusiasm, energy and motivation inspires others, you have a magnetic quality and a natural creativity. You’ll ideally have a very keen enjoyment of all aspects of Bellydance and a strong foundation of knowledge from which to build on. An active experience of social media platforms is desirable. Experience within an admin, pr, marketing, writing or events background would be beneficial but is not essential. You should be based in Edinburgh, Scotland and have access to a fast internet connection. Having an understanding of the Bellydancingbarbie ethos and a desire to build on this will be considered more highly than any other factor.


  • For every 1 hour you help out you’ll receive a credit for a 1 hour timetabled bellydancing lesson (value £9 each, no expiry)
  • Valuable experience & rare opportunity to join a community focussed micro social enterprise business
  • Reference for future potential employers
  • Earn the quirky and unique title “Bellydance Assistant” for the summer!


Send a CV and short covering letter to stating what you can bring to Bellydancingbarbie.

Feel free to include details of any  Twitter, Facebook or blog pages you admin and would like to highlight to help show your style & personality and anything else you think relevant.

2 positions are available. 1x oriental bellydance enthusiast, 1x tribal bellydance enthusiast. The closing date is 12pm Monday 22nd April 2013. Shortlisted applicants will be contacted via email and invited for a coffee and a chat. If the ideal person doesn’t apply, the position may remain open.

Back in 2010 Bellydancingbarbie ran a similar, very successful, summer internship, you can see that from the archive HERE

Should you have any questions just ask, you may be the exact person I’m looking for!
