Thoughts from August 2011

fancy working for method?

We like method. They make nice things in a nice way. They asked us if we'd mind putting up a blog post about their search for some new recruits and we said yes.

Method

Take it away method:

join the fight against dirty at method. We’re recruiting for interns (in sales, marketing & operations). Based in Richmond, London.

In 2000, method’s founders took on the goliaths of the cleaning world with a big idea: reposition cleaning to home care by combining style & substance through the mega-trends of design and green…and they built a brand that quickly became the usa & uk’s leading brand in green household cleaning. We have big growth plans & are looking for ‘interns against dirty’ to help spread the method word with our retailers & consumers and to help us make and deliver great products on time and in full.

As well as the basics, these roles call for a creative, energetic, analytical, and self-starting graduate or undergraduate with the flexibility to manage and master a diverse, ever-changing and interesting workload... and the ability to add to the team vibe in our office is just as important (hint: can you catch a Frisbee?) You'll get the opportunity to run your own project which will make a real difference to our business, all whilst still wearing shorts and flip flops.

We’re very passionate about what we do (as are our consumers), so, if you’ll love hearing ‘you’ve changed my life with your toilet cleaner’, this could be the job for you.

To apply:

Please email a cover letter & cv to officeangel@methodhome.com – don’t forget to tell us why you want to fight dirty, what your favourite product is & send a photo of it in action"

good for nothing - feeling helpful?

Goodbyideas_content-505x405

Our friends at Good for Nothing are running a rapid response event this weekend, to try to raise money and awareness for the famine crisis in east Africa, where one child is dying every six minutes and, according to the UN, 3.2 million Somalians are in need of immediate lifesaving assistance in the worse drought in over 60 years. The fundraising efforts are struggling to keep up to fund the relief effort.

They started last week with this http://good.byideas.co.uk/ where anyone can upload a potential web based money raising idea, which they will then prototype and build during the event this weekend - information on the weekend's events right here.

Get involved.

little pictures of little people

This time last week, we were at Camp Bestival getting 'down with the kids' and we thought we'd share some of the photos with you.

1) One small person enjoying a carton of our juicy drink.

How. Very. Cute.

Simply Cute

2) Two keen beans demonstrating 'straw best practice'. Funny face or technical maestro? Jury is out.

'You see, you open your mouth like this and pop the straw in here…'

Straw goes here

3) Three happy chappies.

Our most enthusiastic drinker? We're not sure what the young man on the right is doing either. But we love him.

I'm a hero

4) And, last but not least, four shiny happy little people*.

Shiny Happy People

*or maybe just three. The little lady on the right doesn't look so jolly.
