So who wants to join us?
We’re really excited to announce the launch of our Internship Programme. After the Makeup In Nigeria Conference we’ve been inundated with requests to join our team. For help and mentoring.
It’s something that has been a long time coming, we’ve always planned on it but it seems now is the time. We’re also expanding our team and we have several job openings which need hard working, dedicated passionate people to fill.
So here’s how it works.
Sacred Internship Programme
We’re offering 3 bright young makeup artists the chance to be mentored and learn with us. Now when we say young, we don’t have any real age limits, we just need those young at heart but mature in mind. Experience in makeup artistry is a slight advantage but we’d rather take those with raw talent and passion over those who have been working in the industry and are looking for a free hand out.
We want to mentor our interns. Help them to really gain experience and learn valuable information not only about “how” but also “why”.
The programme runs for 2 years. And only very serious applicants will be considered. The first year the successful trainees will be taken through the steps. Covering everything from Bridal Makeup to SFX and Beauty Therapy. The second year will be focused on gaining work experience and developing a strong portfolio.
Please do not apply if you’re only interested in coming on board to learn for free and have no intention of staying after the first few months or first year as this Programme should be considered as if you are going to a Higher Learning Institute. As though you are going to University to study Makeup Artistry & Beauty Therapy at the Sacred Academy. It will be hard work but it will shape and mould you into a true professional.
The first stage of application opens tomorrow. Monday 12th May. Applications close Monday 19th May 2014. We’ll then review and invite successful applicants in for interviews. Starting date is Mid June 2014.
Applicants are open to anyone over the age of 18. You will be responsible for your own accommodation within Lagos. A basic monthly allowance will be provided towards transportation and lunch.
Mail a covering letter stating why you would like to be mentored along with any images of your makeup work (if you have none then you can send in pictures of makeup on yourself) to the Sacred Internship Programme on:
