Recruitment at Tjoapack

Q: There are no current openings that suit me, is there a way for me to submit an application?

A: Of course there is. We welcome applicants that are enthusiastic about becoming part of our organisation. Please submit your CV, letter of motivation, and a short message describing the reason you want to apply. If there are no suitable positions at this time, we’ll add your details to our database for future openings. We will keep your CV for a period of maximum three months, after which you will need to reapply.

Q: I am a student looking for a university project internship or a summer internship – do you accept internship applications?

A: Absolutely. In recent years, we’ve had some excellent university placement students, and are always happy to support others with their development. There is a list of our open internships under our careers section. Alternatively, you can submit your CV and motivation letter to us speculatively. In your message, be sure to include the nature of the project you had in mind, and why you think Tjoapack is the right place for you to explore it. If you don’t have a project in mind, we will see if there is an existing one you can join.

A: Thank you for submitting your application. We’ll review it, and get back to you as soon as we can. Appropriate candidates will be invited to a first round of interviews.
