Trouva is revolutionising the world of e-commerce for the best bricks and mortar boutiques across the world. Finding the best independent shops who will complement our community of sellers is a core part of what we do and we have an opportunity for an intern to join our Business Development team to help us embed the processes needed to scale our business.
We’re looking for someone with excellent organisational skills, a thorough approach and attention to detail. Experience with CRM systems and using data to drive decisions is ideal. A eye for design and a passion for independent retail is desirable. The internship is paid and runs for 2-3 months.

What we offer:
Trouva’s mission is to unite the UK’s best independent boutiques with the millions of people across the world who are looking for their next unique find. There are thousands of small independent boutiques, with beautiful product selections, spread out across the physical world, but discovering and purchasing these products can be notoriously difficult for consumers.
At Trouva we provide these independent boutiques with the technology required to thrive online and we also connect them with a community of people who desire beautiful products. As TechCrunch put it, we allow store owners focus on what they do best: having beautiful offline experiences and selecting the right products for their customer base. We’ve been around for about 20 months and have already been named one of the 5 fastest growing startups in the UK.
