Here’s what some of our previous interns have to say about interning with POPBABY:

Carla Rogers – Producing and Marketing Intern – RIOT 2017

I loved being a THISISPOPBABY intern! The internship was tailored to my own interests and I felt like a valued member of the core team from Day 1. I had great mentors, gained experience in marketing, producing, and admin, made lots of new connections and had a lot of fun and now I work for POPBABY on an ongoing basis as an Associate Producer!

John Dennehy – Producing and Marketing Intern – I Am Tonie Walsh, Nov/Dec 2018

I would highly recommend interning with THISISPOPBABY. They are dynamic and driven with an unparalleled company culture. I learned more in my 7 weeks shadowing Philly, Jenny and Natalie than I have in 2 years freelancing.

TIPB were not only conscious of providing me with a space to train but also made me feel like a valued and important part of the team over the internship. They asked my opinions, used my ideas and gave me resources to bring those ideas to life. They make work that is intersectional and high octane, every day in the TIPB office is a pure buzz. There are always new ideas being developed, new people to meet and new challenges to tackle.

Although they work extremely hard as a company, they also know how to have a good time and put an emphasis on work being enjoyable. If you’re quick on your feet and ready to work hard then this is the internship for you. Oh and I’m going to get to work with them again as I’ve been hired to work with TIPB as their Assistant Stage Manager on their upcoming show RIOT in Vicar Street in May 2019, I can’t wait to work with the team again!

Cathal Sheerin – Producing and Marketing Intern – Where We Live, March 2018

My internship with THISISPOPBABY was an amazing experience. I had the opportunity to learn and experience many new aspects of running a theatre company and a festival. Throughout my time I was encouraged to engage with and experience as much of the Where We Live Festival as possible – from working with artists, assisting the producers, organising events and working on my own initiative. Everyone was helpful, kind, generous and friendly. It was a fantastic place to intern.

Jennifer Aust – Producing and Marketing Intern – Where We Live 2018

THISISPOPBABY was a brilliant company to work with as an intern on the WHERE WE LIVE festival. They generated a really creative working environment where I felt trusted with responsibility, encouraged to push myself and my skillset, but was always supported in what I was learning. It was a great way to meet artists, engage with projects that were exciting to me and learn more about what it takes to produce fabulous theatre in Ireland.
