  • Good day,

  • Hello!
    I am a media student at the University of Cape Town and I am very interested in this opportunity. My only concern is that I do not have a driver’s license but I believe that I fill all the other requirements. I live in Obz Square residence so I am based in Observatory as well and I am very passionate about starting my career in branding. Please advise as I would really like to try and I will be working towards getting my drivers license soon.

    • Hi Thuveshni – thanks for getting in touch. Great to hear that you’re interested in applying for the position. The driver’s license issue isn’t a problem, but ideally, we are looking for someone who has already completed their degree. Let us know if you have any further questions.
