We get to spend time cultivating up-and-coming young talent, and we benefit from their refreshing energy, enthusiasm and ideas. We’re a youth-segment specialist agency, so it’s important to us to maintain a team that’s representative of our target market.’
Fresh Meat is a paid internship, aiming to offer valuable mentorship in exchange for innovative thinking that should inspire and excite the existing team.

The internships will run three days a week for a month, and for stand-out talent, there’s the possibility of an extended stay in the Lifelounge paddock.
‘Applicants will need to wow us – they’ll be carefully selected based on how they demonstrate their talent and drive. The chosen ones will stand out from the herd,’ says Creative Director, Brad Wilson.
