Set on 2,500 acres of natural bays, bluffs, and beaches on the Eastern Caribbean island of St. Kitts, Christophe Harbour is a dynamic resort community with elegant residences, resort hotels, and exceptional amenities, including a superyacht marina and village, Tom Fazio golf, and a beachside pavilion. Corporate headquarters for Christophe Harbour are located here in Charleston.
The marketing department at Christophe Harbour serves a number of internal clients from real estate to marina, food & beverage to club operations and performs an array of marketing and communications activities, from public relations to branding, communications to event planning, and beyond. We are looking for a communications intern to help us plan, research, write, and edit meaningful communications for a global audience of high net worth clients, guests, and business partners.
We’re a small, family-owned company who work hard but have a lot of fun along the way. Ours is a fast-paced working environment where no day is the same and even the best-laid plans get upended. Most of our work is done remotely over phone, web and email, and we liaise closely with on-island colleagues and a number of outside vendors.
Day-to-day work will include researching and writing of ongoing communications, planning editorial calendars, and assisting with digital, social media, advertising, and public relations efforts.
We’re looking for a dedicated, bright student with a solid work ethic who will bring new energy to our team and become part of our “family.” This internship is unpaid, but you’ll gain lots of invaluable experience. Hours are flexible to meet the needs of the student, but a minimum of 5 hours per week is desired. Academic credit may be available, if desired.
In turn, we promise you hands-on experience in resort and marina marketing and public relations, networking and professional training, and the opportunity to develop a solid portfolio of work.
Our office is located in downtown Charleston, and office hours would be required. Parking may be available, if necessary, but not guaranteed.
